Hi Sandra,

about the free space problem: this is quite common, amiconn (Jens Arnold)
told on IRC that windows doesn't update free space most of the time, and
told how to make rockbox do it itself:
menu, enter info, enter debug (speech will now stop)
now press up 3 times (disk info), press play, press right 3 times (free
space), and press play. rockbox will now search the drive for some time,
and calculate free space.
pressing off, then left will you get back to the speeched part.

about the renaming: the three keys are F1=Shift, F2=OK, F3=Del. Shift
changes keymaps, normal characters, caps, and all kinds of unicode
characters (three keymaps). Del is what you were looking for.

Not sure about the digital microphone, I think other people on this list
know more about that. I do know that the archos has standard digital
in/out, if you plug in a 3,5-to-cinch adapter in the digital plug (this
way the left cinch plug will be in, and the right will be out, or the
other way around). Dunno enough about that though.
