Well, why!? It's a bit initial work but then you have them save. Your
computer HD is freed. In my case i just use about 500 MB on my computer as a
cache for music i want to hear so i don't have to put in the CD's everytime
i want to listen.

Because localizing music and copying it to your HD or the Archos, i
developed the Dj Quarc, plugin for Winamp 2.x. There i can easily and
very fast search any music by fragments of filenames, have an overview, a
history AND an automatical management of the HD's Cache. So the access to
the CD's music is quite transparent.
