 Riovolution: Hit Your Karma ... Hard
Author: La_Maudite 
Date:   08-25-04 11:50
Je croyais bien ne plus avoir de lecteur MP3.... Le Karma faisait des bruits bizarres de tetes de disques durs. A tout hazard, je vais voir le FAQ sur Riovolution et a ma surprise je tombe sur l'entree suivante:

I think my Karma's hard drive is dead. What should I do? And why do people keep telling me to hit my Karma?

Voici le message que j'ai envoye et qui decrit mon experience aussi traumatisante pour moi que pour mon lecteur ;-)

Pour l'instant, tout semble fonctionner #1. Je touche du bois pour que ca continue comme ca, mais sans mon Karma dans les mains ;-)
