Subject: Newly installed - some questions.
From: Kristian Koehntopp (
Date: 2003-08-07

I got my new Archos JS 6000 from Amazon just today, and
installing Rockbox 2.0 was the very first thing I did after
listening to the sample tunes provided by Archos. Worked like a
charm and is so much better that the Archos provided software.

A few questions remain:

- How do I power down the archos?

  Unplugging the loading cable will power down the unit after 1m
  idle time (because I configured that), but how do I force a
  power down?

- My configuration file, the language file and the wps file are
  not shown nor read at all. What am I doing wrong?

  I have

Also, when I create a folder "kris", and put the deutsch.lng and
kris.wps files into that folder, the are not shown (the folder
is shown empty) and thus I cannot "play" these files. The
".rockbox" folder is not shown at all and I cannot play files
from there (should I be able to do this?).
