Title: Archos jukebox studio 20 plug and play
Post by: norman on October 05, 2007, 08:47:58 PM
I love the Rockbox software. My JS 20 is an old one and while using the Archos software, had to install drivers for every computer that I plugged it into. I was hoping that the Rockbox would be plug and play for any computer but apparantly not. What can I do to upgrade my JS 20 to be recognized as a drive by any XP computer?

Since the archos and rockbox firmware use the same hardware USB controller, I doubt that you can change that. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong)

The old Archos Jukebox and Studio/Players used a USB 1.1 connection which requires a driver from Archos. You can get it from this link:

There's no easy way of upgrading the USB connection on an Archos.

Make that no way at all, unless you want to rework a decent portion of the board.  The USB 2.0 chip is not pin-compatible.
