or your battery died.

The power cord can't provide enough energy at sart iirc, if you own a
"classic" jukebox, you can check the bettries (cheaper than a hd !), for
v2/fm I can't say... but you can get a 2" HD adaptor and test you disk on a
PC.

For flashed boxes, there is a trick holding F1 while plugging-in the
power/the USB, check the mail archive.

Good luck

I tried turning on my Archos last night, and for the most part, it's
dead. If I turn it on without the power connected, it just locks at
the Loading Firmware screen. If I start it without the power, it
turns on, the screen light dims, and then the unit shuts off completely.

Otherwise, when the power was connected, the unit was making a terrble
clicking/grinding nose. I am assuming the drive is dead.

Any ideas on a specific drive I should use to replace it? With newer
20GB models selling so cheap, it might be better off to just buy a
replacement...

Thanks in advance.
