Yes, it is a bit hard to change volume on the player. I don't like it
although I have learned it by now.

The problem as I see it is that even if you could make it darn simple
from the buttons it is hard to get to them when the player is in your
pocket. Unfortunately I think it is hard to get a digital interface
right for the volume. It should have been a knob.

I got eight to.

IMHO there are two things to fix first for the player:

1. When stopping from an m3u-file you are located in the folder where
   the mp3-file is located. So you can't easily change albums or even
   go back to where you started from. Why not have a m3u-mode where
   only m3u-files are visible!? (I have all my songs in m3u-files in
   the root-folder anyway so why be bothered with the folder

2. A working random-mode where you can select one ore more albums for
   the random-mode to pick songs from.

Disclaimer: I haven't checked the archos site for quite a while for
updates so these things might have been fixed or changed.
