It happens as soon as you start recording.

how do you mean? if I rename RECORD.MP3 to TEST.MP3 and record I get
the panic..

Dunno about this..

Let me reitterate in short:

Record, hook up USB, open HD in windows, delete RECORD.MP3, release
USB, record --> PANIC

Record, hook up USB, open HD in windows, rename RECORD.MP3 to
TEST.MP3, release USB, record --> PANIC

In both cases if I restart the archos and record after the panic it
works just fine..
