Subject: Re: Help with daily builds?
From: Michael O'Quinn (michael_at_oquinn.info)
Date: 2003-08-03


I seem to recall, at least on the players, that the Archos firmware built
into the ROM only checks the first 10 letters of the file name (the period
doesn't count, since it's not actually stored in the 8.3 directory entry).

This means that if you have a file like, say, "ajbrec.ajz.bak" it MIGHT
attempt to load that file instead of the one you want. Further, if that
file is invalid, it will of course not be loaded.

I don't know if this helps, but it's another thing to check.
