Hmmm, I never had any issues with Archos and XP. Now my Buslink portable
HD and my Adaptec USB2 PCI card, there's an incompatible pair if I ever
saw one. No crashing of the OS, just a drive that powers up and down
like a yo-yo. I finally picked up a cheap IOGear card from buy.com and
it works just fine. Things like this are what makes computers fun, eh?

The mail archive can also be accessed as a newsgroup on news.gmane.org:

gmane.comp.systems.archos.rockbox.general

Presumably you could download headers and message bodies and read them
offline at your hearts content. =)
