Hi all,

As my 20gig harddrive crashed, i bought myself a new 40gig harddrive, a seagate
momentus. I am now into the process of refilling it with my mp3s. Here start my
problems.

I start with a full battery, charger is plugged in and detected by rockbox,
rockbox does not charge the battery, the battery goes empty has the drive drain
the juice from the battery(till here everything is normal ), but it will not
start charging (when i checked voltage was around 4.60volts). The copying
process keeps going, draining the battery a bit more... And then windows gives
me nice CRC failed errors...

I even saw on my archos displaying a flashing fullbattery icon (that's when i
checked and got a 4.6v in the debug menu). In general a reboot on the archos
help, as charging starts then.

All this seems really wierd to me. Any ideas ?

Archos recorder 20, version1, flashed, Rockbox version 30-12-2003. batteries
are brand new.

Thanks for your help
