Subject: Re: Archos USB A-Male to A-Male against USB Law !!!
Date: 2003-12-17

This information will probably not help you, but right now, i am using a
2m, type A-A cable (AK 670/2-2,0) from There are
also 1m and 5m available. The price is 0.55 to 0.98.
The archos offer is a disgusting, shameless personal offense and should be
seen as attempted fraud or usury. Bastards!
