Subject: Re: Help please! Rockbox work with this? It is a multimedia unit?

if your'e only going to listen to audio books, you could probably get by with a studio 10, which
can only play mp3s, not record. amazon has 'em for $160

installing rockbox is fairly easy. all you have to do is go to the download section of the rockbox
page, download the zip file for your model of archos, and unzip it on your archos drive. if you
want to use one of the newer versions, you just have to download the new archos.mod/ajdrec.ajz
file and put it in the archos root dir. too technical for you?
