For selecting your points in the cuesheet it might actually much better
to convert the file to wav first and find them there. Since Archos uses
VBR encoding, often the times aren't accurate in most mp3-software....
converting to wav first makes sure, that the cutting points are accurate
(especially if you wanna burn a CD!)
