Hi

My harddrive has been playing up in my Archos AV480. I'm fairly certain it has bad sectors, as it seems to corrupt some of the files I record.

I will purchase a new 80Gb IDE drive. Can I just buy any brand, install the firmware and off you go?

Also, could I upgrade to a larger capacity drive?

Thanks in advance

James

yep up to 120gb max. any more than that and it wont be seen on the machine.
also make sure you format it in FAT32 not ntfs otherwise again it wont be seen
