But short names should have the same extension as the long name...
For example I renamed a directory with Rockbox into "Q", Windows and the
Archos both show "Q", but its dos filename is "Q.A41" (whereas folders
created with Windows or DOS do not have this extension). The dos name of
".queue_file" is "QUEUE_FI.57A".
My "défaut.cfg" is "défaut.AC5". This file shows everywhere as
"défaut.cfg", but is inaccessible from Windows and DOS as "défaut.cfg"
(File doesn't exist), although it is accessible as "défaut.AC5".

Chkdsk didn't found any error on mine.

Oh and using DirectorySnoop I found two files, erased a few days before
I got my Archos : AJBREC.AJZ and AJBREC.EJZ (156KB and 130KB), do you
know what they could be, especially AJBREC.EJZ ? (and none of them are
bootable, they could have been damaged)
