Do the lights dim and/or flicker when the drive spins up?
If the batteries are okay - maybe there is a battery connector
problem - even the V1 has this issue quite well documented (athough
don't ask me where) especially if you have swapped the batteries a
number of times.
Then again formatting, deleting and recording all WRITE to the disk.
I would be more tempted to suspect a USB issue.

Having been recently hit (in a moment of my own stupidity) with a
"rootkit virus" I would be tempted to run "rootkitRevealer" on the
offchance ...hell! given it allows viruses to hide from your
AV/spyware software, check anyway.

Tried another PC?
Tried another USB cable?
Another USB port on your PC?
Cleaned all the connectors?
Tried booting into Archos firmware for the duration of the copy?
Reinstall/Update(with same version) windoze drivers?

Have I offered enough possible options to say "sporadic" ;)
