Where is the download.

The Archos UK site still only lists the 2.0.54 firmware.

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.

Storage: SDCard now supports NTFS (read only) and EXT3

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

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 ...
