I heard of that problem, it could be your charger circuit and it could be your battery. There's a interesting forum post on this at www.newmp3technology.com: http://www.newmp3technology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=700
But here's something else: I'll buy your xs202s if you want.. :)
For a reasonable defect-price.
I have one but the display is broken.
Had no luck trying to find that obscure 2" 128x128 backlit greyscale korean display in the IC-market here in Europe.

Try turning the unit on with the hard drive disconnected. When I did this (mine had a similar problem) a screen came up and asked me if I wanted to format. I plugged the hard drive back in and reformatted. I had to format twice, but after that it worked fine.

My Gmini XS202s did this twice both time cause the battery went flat while moving files across (I should always charge device while connecting to PC)
First time I reformatted device as FAT32 using fdisk (Windows formatting tool should do same)
Then downloaded latest AOS and copied to root directory. [get AOS from http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/updates.html?country=gb&lang=en]
second time I ran mkdosfs /media/disk (disk was mount point for gmini). This seemed to fix the device and I lost about 20 files. but better than reformat.
