Subject: Archos Gmini 120
From: Eric Linenberg (elinenbe_at_umich.edu)
Date: 2003-10-22


I just purchased this player yesterday to see if it was something that
was worth keeping. However, I think I will be sticking with my
Recorder 20 with Rockbox.

I have posted pictures and a zip of the contents of the player when I
purchased it at www.linenberg.com/gmini120.zip

I opened it up too, and got a list of the chips inside

USB chip?

Well, about this player... it is a recorder, player, and it has a CF
slot on the top of it. However everything is available as an add-on
from the archos site (plugins that you purchase)

There is an icon driven interface, and you can either play choose,
music, browser, photo, recorder, MadPlay, or setup. However,
recorder, MadPlay, and photo bring up a screen saying that the plugin
is available at www.archos.com (it is not!) This leads me to believe
that there may be some sort of SDK? Hmm?

I had to UNSOLDER the battery to get at the main board, and I messed
the units bumpers up a little putting everything back together. It is
a tight package. It uses a standard laptop hard drive, and you can
browse the music as in Rockbox, or as a database (somehow you have to
rescan the player for database changes -- not sure -- have not messed
around with it that much.

I do not know much about the player right now, but ask questions and I
will gladly answer, or figure it out.
