        I agree with that. I think transferts with USB 2 could drain too power and with my "weeker" USB front port it could disconnect the Archos. Perhaps, I have the same problem with other Port in a long period of use (I will try this).

  No, I didn't say that. I have said that it happends with the original archos Firmware. It's the same problem. Perhaps, my front USB2 ports are not really USB2 compliant .... However, my cm and "boitier" have been marked as USB2...

        I will to use the charger now ;-). It could really solve my problem !
        Thank you for your answer
