Its a bit confusing and but it seems that the 405 30gb (the player i have) is not compatible with accessories from other gen5 players. (like the 405 SD players)
basically, i lost my usb>weird-archos-connector cable, and i am thinking of buying a dock like the mini dock in order to use the usb host function.
1. as far as i can tell, i cant buy the cable at archos. only for 405-SD
2. i can only buy the Dvr travel adapter because the archos site tells me that it is the only dock avalible for the 405 30gb
is this correct? and am i correct that there used to be a usb-dock but they dont sell it anymore?
is buying the dvr travel adapter my ONLY option??? that would suck very much, pardon my French
after reading t.f. manual
i figured out that i needed the Docking Adaptor Gen 4 (ref:500879)
also known as the:
Archos Docking Adapter Kit for 404, 504, and 604 Series Players
and far as i know archos dont sell them anymore on they're online store (and dont even give any info on the existence of the darn thing)
only question remains, is it still possible to obtain an usb to W.A.C (Weird Archos Connector) cable?
does anyone have a Ref Nr on it? and, is it the same a the cable sold with the other Gen4 players?
(and, is the 405-30gb actually a gen4 machine ??)
