Just updates and I now have 2.0.71 installed.

It didn't wipe any of my settings or programs.

It does place another setting in 'ABOUT DEVICE' called 'POWER MANAGEMENT' with three choices,

...Overdrive
...Optimal
..Powersave

Going to test it now and see what's what.

Does this mean that you can read NTFS formated partitions on your 2,5" HDD and copy from them ?

Put it the root of your internal storage. :) It will auto recognize and start the update.

...Connect your Archos to your PC via USB.
...Copy the file across to the root of your internal drive
...Disconnect from your pc
...Make sure the Power cable is inserted and hey presto...it should be automatic...

Great !
I'm very happy that "Archos" is listening the customers with the "overdrive" feature.
I will test it this evening.
Now I hope to have Flash as a Christmas gift ...
