The Archos DOES NOT automatically convert videos when you copy them... this is why it is not playing. If you are just connecting the Archos, letting your computer recognize it as a hard drive and just copying the files over, they wont work... You will either need to buy the plug in OR convert them first in your PC then copy them over...P.S. I think Archos plug-ins are still sold cheaper over at eBay... you might want to look there. But my recommendation, just convert the videos to Xvid or a similar format.
Many thanks your help.
Realise now what a stupid question it was.
Downloaded Prism video converter and converted lots of videos to WMV format that copies over
and they p[lay perfectly. Will have a look on E-Bay.
Prism would not convert all the Music videos I bought in iTunes, is there a way of getting those
on an Archos 7?
