I have that, too (using XP). It's always been like that, looks like there is
just a certain probability for it to happen. In the range of every 15
minutes or so. For that reason I cannot watch DivX movies directly from the box,
have to copy them to local hd first. Otherwise it's very annoing, with the
media player failing after a while.

Interesting that you say it doesn't happen with the original firmware. I
haven't paid attention to it, but would say that mostly I'm in USB mode with the
Archos firmware because powering it on plugged. Will check that next time.

I was also suspecting power glitches, although I always use the charger
cable for longer sessions. For the record, I have a Fujitsu 60GB drive, in case
it depends.
