AFAIK the FM recorders (but not the non-FM models) can recharge or at
least draw some power via the USB connection. The FM tuner is supported
by all recent versions of rockbox - try downloading a daily build if you
are using rockbox 2.0 or earlier. You really do *not* want to use the
Archos firmware. =)
