regarding XP-Problem - I have a completly different kind of problem:

if I plug/unplug my archos and suspend/unsuspend my (XPHome,Gericom)
Notebook several times,
this gives a problem with my archos after a while.
The Icon and the drive letter is still there - but the Volume-Name magically
If I want to copy data to the archos, I get a message, that the filesystem
on the archos
doesn`t support long filenames, and the filenames get mangled while copying.

I always rebooted my notebook to resolve this issue, but now I recognized,
that this must be
just a "explorer issue".
If i go to task manager and kill ALL explorer-instances (including the one
instance which is your XP desktop) and then start a new explorer via
task-manager`s "new task" - all is fine again and I can
see the volume name and can copy long filenames.
this is weird - indeed. I thought it was a driver/hardware issue.

Did anyone experience this problem, too ?
Is this a known bug?
