Thanks Jens, I've just tried and can confirm it's working. I've set the type of the 2nd partition to 0x1C and it doesn't appear any more. Of course you should only do so when you don't want to fill the partition externally any more, resp. when finally placed in the Archos.

@Christopher: how would you fit a 2.5" drive into an iRiver 140?

@Thomas: I got a Samsung HM160JC, very quiet drive. Even less noise than my Fujitsu, I thought this in impossible.
