Not quite accurate, and actually FUD and rumours. I have had nothing but
Linux here (for the past 13 years, that is :-) , and my 10 GB recorder
w/ 40 GB disk works just fine with it. No special driver required. The
isd200 driver has been in usbserial for ages, at least for the 4 or so
years or so I had Archos players w/ SUSE Linux. If you can get a cheap
10gb recorder used and a larger disk, and if USB11 isn't a problem for
you, GET IT! Hey, how often do you actually load stuff onto it? I mean I
rsync my server archive to it from time to time and if it take 5 minutes
or 20 minutes, who the hell cares???

Again: There ain't no such thing as a special Linux driver for Archos
players or recorders with USB 1.1 (ISD200 chip). Not in 2006.

In any case I may be upgrading mine with a 80 GB disk soon because my
server archive has grown > 40 GB...
