I have an archos 404 (probably ancient now - it was end-of-line when I got
it) and, aside from not playing ogg, the bugbear I have with this device
is the proprietary USB cable needed to connect it. Has this situation
changed with the 605? What's the point of this anyway, apart from forcing
people to carry round a device-specific cable?
