Hi there,

I got the tablet from a friend after he let it drop and the hdd dies :)
I replaced the HDD with a Sata to SDHC adapter but the connection gets lost all the time.

Now i would like to know if it is possible to use a usb stick as the internal memory?

i am 99% sure its not possible. HDD's are coded to be used only for Archos devices. So, if you have to exchange it u have to buy it from them. Also, if it could be replaced by any HDD u can buy the cheapest device and put another HDD which isnt what companies are looking for. Also, internal memory isnt the same as HDD. If you have a ROM installed in your internal memory the HDD will stop spinning when the device is sleeping, if its installed on the HDD it will continue to spin even if the device is sleeping. That was an example and there might be 2 broken parts or only 1 of these 2.

It would not worth the money to repair the device cuz its kinda old yet. The part itself would cost you like 50% of the whole device.
