RE: FOR SALE: 2.5" 120GB HDD
No, Rockbox correctly identified the HDD.
The IDE interface is an electrical interface. The 137GB barrier is more of
the limitation of the older ATA protocol. Newer ATA commands provide 48-bit
LBA, breaking through the 137GB barrier. I also used Partition Magic 8.0 to
format the drive in FAT32.

does that mean that you successfully upgraded to a 160GB HDD on Archos
I thought that there was a limit at 137 GB because of the IDE interface.
