It takes my 404 a very long time sometimes for me to swtich songs, or go into the data folder, is there any way i can minimize on the loading times? Also, i tried putting a mpeg2 video on there and it wont play, when i try to play it it says i need to purchase a software update, whats up with that?

Sadly Archos thought not everyone would want mpeg2 and instead of paying royalties on every unit, decided to offer it as a $20 plugin on their page.

Sucks big time - really want both the mpeg2 and mpeg4 codecs but will not pay $40 for them. Maybe $10 each might get me interested.

As for your load times - don't know.

Sometimes mine will hang for a few seconds, but it's reasonable enough for me. I don't know what you mean by a long time, but the longest I've ever seen was in the movie menu. I'm sure it was still well less than 10 seconds, and considering how long another mp3 player I tried took to process id3 tags, it seems okay to me.

 Post subject: slow response to music
PostPosted: Thu Jul 05, 2007 12:25 am 
I'm having a slight problem with my 404, I recently purchased it after my gmini202 finally gave up, I chose the archos again because of the mass storage capability, no additional software, and yet when I put my music on it plays the music almost immediately, but it takes the device a while to catch up, anyone got any ideas, solutions? Will be much appreciated.

I'm sure it has something to do with the new features and "decoration" when it plays the song, artist info etc, was wondering it there was a way to turn it off.

Thanks[/b]

Yeah, it is just reading the ID3 tag, only lags a bit at the first song - no biggie. My PC does it more than that. It's just something you have to live with using the HDD storage.
