why did you need special drivers at all? i don't think i even opened the
CD that came with my archos, just plugged it into my XP and my linux
boxen successfully and it was detected as generic USB storage. i copied
~18,000,000,000 bytes to it with this driver in less than 2 hours under
XP using the drivers that shipped with XP..

i'm just thrilled that i have an mp3 player that i can update from any
computer i happen to be at, without any special software.
