You could do a disk check, but I would not recommend that. I would
recommend a full format. Windows xp can definatly do that with 80gb
fat32. To do it, plug your archos into USB, right click my computer,
go to manage, find disk management. Look for the 80gb drive, delete
the bad partition on it, and creat your new one.

good Luck!
