that is a very difficult thing, IMHO - especially when it comes to the fact, that you don`t
have a constant load. the hdd is a very "peaky" load, so it`s really difficult to make a good estimate about remaining capacity (by
doing voltage measurement)

Subject: low battery hd noise
> Hi, as i wrote bevore, I just bought my Archos. I noticed that when the batteries ar low, my unit stops playng or transfering
files, but before shutting down, the hd makes strange noises, 10 or 20 times, it makes like "srs crs crs noises, it seems that it
wants to read but power is not enough. it's as if it tries to move the had, while the disc rotation is insufficient for lack of
adequat power. wouldn't it be better to shut down the unit completely a minute before?
> I mast say, being blind, I don't see the battery level yet, but still, is this normal? and, I sow a patch to make archos beep,
it's a dif file, but honestly I don't know how to patch the .ajz file I have.
> Thanks in advance.
