Only the first partition is visible to the Archos player.

Just format it on an WIN98 system. I upgraded to a 60 GB Fujitsu disk as soon as I
found the documentation for doing it. And I would upgrade even further now if there was
a 100 GB or bigger drive available for a reasonable price. The difference from 60 to 80
GB is just to small.
BTW: I never cared about cluster size. Maybe the smallest one would be good because
it will minimize the amount of disk space wasted.
