Archos 5 IT - driver ExtFS for Mac OSX

I just install the Paragon ExtFS for Mac OS X driver.

The driver doesn't work if MacOSX 10.6.2 kernel starts in full 64bit mode : there's nothing in the Finder and Disk Utility shows an Archos device but the filesystem is grayed (not available).

After restarting Mac OSX kernel in 32bits mode, the Archos device becomes visible in the Finder.

First tests copying small files to / from the Archos 5 IT seems to work properly but sometimes it seems to take a long time to prepare to copy ... a little bit strange behavior.

It seems A5IT ejection doesn't work properly : after trying to eject the A5IT from the Mac, I have to unmount the connection from the A5IT for the filesystem to disappear on MacOSX, with an alert message !...
