I have had no problem with mic noise unless I was using the recorder's
internal mic. Did rerouting the wires help with that noise as well, or was
it more EFI noise you were hearing when using an external mic?

I think I've noted this before, but I don't imagine everyone saw - I
rerouted the line-in wires in my recorder through the battery compartment,
thus shielding them from the archos circuitry and HDD (the wires are
unshielded and travel the length of the case, right up against the
circuitry). This resulted in the removal of the interference from the archos
operation and disk spins. Hopefully later model recorders have shielded
wires now, but if you can hear interference in your recordings that
corresponds with HDD spins, shielding or rerouting the line-in wires seems
to be an easy and fairly effective fix.
