Hi George,

For the brief amount of time I had my hands on a V1 Recorder (I was
servicing it and
installing Rockbox on it), I just did the poor man's Hold switch: I simply
removed one
battery out of the Archos and then slipped it into my bag to carry it
around. Granted,
it's a cruft, but at least it worked.

If you have the carrying case from the Archos, on the other hand, transport
it around in
that. The case is thick enough to prevent accidental button presses in a
bag... at least
from my experience.

Nobody's ever lost in life...they're merely taking the scenic route.
