Looks like my Archos 9 hanging problem is fixed. This is what I had done:
1. Connect a Flash Drive to the USB on Archos (make sure the flash drive is formated). I am using a 4GB Flash.
2. In windows 7 (Professional) on Archos 9: Start->right click on Computer->click on Advanced system settings->click on Advanced Tab-> In Performance section click on Settings button->In Visual Effect Tab, select Adjust for best performance radio option. Click on Advanced Tab in Performance options window-> select virtual memory->click change button->uncheck "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives". Click on Custom size: Initial size: 1550 and Maximum size to 1550. Reboot the system. Make sure to remove the flash drive, when the system is booting or else archos 9 will look for OS on flash.
3. Once Archos 9 is up, right click on the flash drive, and click on properties, click on ReadyBoost tab and select "Dedicate this device to ReadyBoost" and make sure to use all of flash drive space (scroll the slide bar to far right in Space to reserve... section).
Now try using applications with scroll, hand recognition works great. NO HANGING BUSINESS. Let me know if ReadyBoost worked for you. This is a Vista/Win7 feature. Check this site out : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wind ... readyboost
