hi adman2,that is bad news,what will do the backup,i notice that vista has a back up program will it do a complete back up

home premium does, takes a while, and i had a couple of failed messages about 30 minutes through! but it does back up. the upgrade advisor told me ghost 10 would cause problems, i never actually tried it

that good news that vista will back up the lot save me from buying an other program, any body have any information on the archos problem,why will it not see it as drive.

I have an av 400 series archos which works fine and is recognised as JUKEBOX when I plug in the usb cable.I found the archos help number was very good when I had a HD problem some time ago, perhaps you could try them.

Sorry I meant to say I have not installed any archos software, only plugged it into Vista and it was found.

You could check the Archos website on their support pages for any updated drivers but I suspect (like my digital cameras and mp3 players) if they are more than a week old then no chance.....
