    Sum, Ergo Sum.
    <joke>Well, the obvious problem is that you're using Archos.</joke> ;)

    That aside, I honestly don't know what to tell you. Have you tried speaking to Archos' technical support about the problem, or searching their website for guidelines or known issues? That's usually a good step to take when something like this happens.

    I'd try to help more, but I neither have an Archos (I love my iPod! :D ) nor do I know what their drivers do or where they're installed.

    Are there any known firmware updates to the unit? If its an older one there might be.

    what version of Jaguar are you running ? .. .at least 10.2.4 i hope

    i've been having zero problems with Mac compatibilty of my Archos Jukebox Multimedia 20GB, have been using it with a G4 powerbook, G4 iBook (both running 10.3.3), and a PC occasionally

    oh yea and for $240 i highly recommend it versus the iPod... and best of all it matches my 12" Powerbook!
