PDF bookmarks please! Also, for the "Go to Page" feature on PDFs, one should be able to type in a number and not have to simply tap the right arrow 100 times in order to go to page 100.

I've got an Archos 7, it would be nice to be able to rotate the PDF view and have a page at a glance, rather than stuck in landscape all the time.

Might be just me though.

1) Provide a way to play Audible.com's .AA files
2) Provide a "skip forward / backward" 30 seconds feature for Audio. I have this feature now in my old MP3 player. It is invaluable when listening to podcasts. For when the topic is not relevant, I want to skip ahead 30 seconds, and then may be again 30 seconds until I get to some relevant material, but sometimes you overshoot the topic and then want to rewind to EXACTLY the same spot that you fast forwarded from...
Using the normal fast forward and rewind functions are not precise enough to quickly and easily get to the right spot.
Of course it's also handy to skip over advertisements and introductions which tend to be in simple multiples of 30 seconds (1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min).
3) Provide a mechanism when transferring photos from a usb based memory card, that behaves just like the method that is used when you transfer photos directly from the camera. It also needs to include the RAW files which the camera method seems to skip over...
Best regards, Rob - from Canada

All I want them to fix in a firmware update is the Dock recording so that the recorded sound and video are in sync.

OGG support isn't 100%.

When browsing music e.g. via artist, and selecting a song, the little bit of info of the left side (essentially the ID3 tags for MP3s) is missing for ogg files. The cover is shown (it is stored in the local folder though, not in the tags) and the total time of the track is shown. If I select an MP3 however I see artist, album, track, year, genre, etc. This info is in the tags because I can check the file's info on the Archos and it shows just fine. However the browsing mode doesn't display it.

Now come on Archos, this is an easily-fixed problem. Sneak it into the next firmware please.

I agree with Zeonx. The tv recording/sync issue has to be fixed.
