Subject: Re: Battery problem symptoms.

Well it's fun (and very annoying), actually I was too optimistic, as I start
to have the problem again (with the new batteries). So I guess I will have
to send the unit to archos :)
So my *new* conclusion is: if your unit reboots very frequently => panic :)
It may be an hardware problem.
