  1. Bonjour, une petite question sur ce nouveau firmware :
    Je viens de le télécharger via mon PC, mais le fichier ne fait que 34 783 Kb alors que la page de téléchargement sur le site Archos indique qu’il est supposé faire 82 801 Kb.
    Par mesure de précaution et ne pas lancer une màj avec un fichier corrompu, pouvez vous me confirmer que la dernière version 2.0.71 ne fait que 34 Mb et non 82…
    Merci d’avance
