I have similar symptoms with mine. It worked fine for a while (radio,
recording, playback, internal memory as well as external memory from a
mate), but I did not yet dare to flash...
When I switch it on it takes bloody ages in any of the screens you are
supposed to see. I thought many times it freezed, then took out the
batteries, but when I once lay it down on the table, I noticed it
would boot to the menu after ages.
I was then even able to see and use the menue, but as soon as I try to
have any action, it says the memory is broken, or there is no valid
partition, can't remember it. I suppose booting takes that long due to
ata-timeouts. It boots the oroginal archos-firmware of course...
I will now wait to get once more an mmc-card to see if maybe that
memory is accessible, but I suppose I have to drive an "old"
rockbox-build that does not use the new multi-volume-stuff then.

If the device does not work with external memory, I seriously consider
to send it to you, Jörg. One more device for the junkyard, one kind of
cheap donation for me...
