So it does, thanks.

The battery definitely shouldn't have drained though. I wonder why it did.

I must admit I'm of the opinion that the Rockbox charging code shouldn't
need to spin up the hard disk in order to start working. The fallback
means that it's not a huge problem, but Rockbox really ought to be able
to charge in any situation where the Archos firmware can.

Thanks to everyone for your help.
