When I try to power up my player it is fine but as soon as i take my finger off the power button (even when it has got to the menu stage) the power cuts out, its a little bizarre, as the power off button is seperate, and I already have power, the power on button acts as a keylock, if I take my finger off the power button briefly, I can hit resume and it loads the song i was last playing, if i keep my finger on the power button, it keeps playing through the songs on shuffle (how i had it set up before) so I don't think its a hard drive issue, even if its been playing for 10 minutes, I take my finger off the power on button.. boof it cuts out and dies, its really bizarre, I don't think i'll have any luck on the warranty as it has been bashed about a bit fell out of my pocket whilst cycling and there are dents on the case but it has withstood the bashing before
Any ideas, would be very much appreciated!

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.
I had similar problem at Archos Gemini 202s. ARClib would crash. I solved as follows: Created a folder on the 202. Moved half my files and folders from the Music folder (via de PC, of course). Then checked for correct update of ARClib. If not, I swapped the contents of the folders and checked with the other half. If update is succesful, it is now known what half is the faulty one.
Now, try to troubleshoot this faulty half in the same way. And so on. Quite quickly, you know what file(s) cause the problem. Good luck!
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.
The charger which came with my Gmini 220 is 5V DC, 1.6A. It measures about 5.18V. The +5V is applied to the normally unused pin on the USB connector. The charger's plug is built so you and plug the charger into the Gmini and then plug the USB cable into the charger.
If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk).
Do the following;
? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini.
? Quit all running applications.
? Properly connect the Gmini to your computer
? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted.
? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors.
? Be patient, this may take a while.
? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini from your computer.
Try using the device now and see if makes any difference. This method should help to fix any disc errors that have occurred within the FAT and help your PC recognise it again. If you have more problems, try formatting it using a DOS prompt. You MUST make sure NOTHING is trying to access the disc before you can format it - this includes windows explorer.
