That sounds strange. You should try playing with the original firmware,
and also with a PC player. There might be CRC errors in the stream and
many PC players don't care about the CRC, but the decoder chip in the
Archos does. If that is the case, there are tools to fix that. Or just
re-rip the corrupt tracks.

Rockbox doesn't care about the ID3 tags when sorting the files, only the
file names.
