Cool, I also want a full size one of those, so presumably I could do
the same for that.

You need to get an external 2.5 inch USB hard drive enclosure. I got
one
off eBay a couple of weeks ago for 5 plus postage. Do a search on
eBay
using "external USB2 2.5" and you will get loads to choose from. You
put
your drive in it and then it is exactly like an Archos, so you can
backup
all your files to/from it before upgrading. Then you can still use
your old
HDD in the enclosure for whatever you want.
