Subject: Re: My Archos Recorder is Silly

I have had similar experiances... to be honest... I have no idea what
causes it. It seemed to go away when I unmounted and remounted...

Anyone else with ideas?

This seems to be fully repeatable and it is highly annoying... Anyone with a
good idea on how I proceed to track this down?
