Micro-USB port

All Gen 8 tablets have a micro-USB port that requires a "host mode cable" (see below pic) to use it with such things as: USB key, flash card reader, keyboard, mouse, camera, etc. The A101 model also has a full-sized USB port in addition.

Image

The host mode cable is a micro-A USB male to USB-A female. See diagram below for the micro-A connector (on the left),

Image

The micro-A connector is needed for host mode; micro-B does not work. Note the rectangular shape of the micro-A with full corners, while the micro-B has a "D" shape with beveled corners.

Unlike the micro-B cable, which is available everywhere as cellphone charger cables, the micro-A cable is fairly hard to find. Confirmed working sources:

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSea ... S-75-STDAJ (US)

http://cgi.ebay.com/Micro-USB-Host-OTG- ... 0662820878 (HK)

Confirmed NOT working micro-A cable (two out of two samples):

http://cgi.ebay.com/HRS-Hirose-USB-2-0- ... 0532147824

Ref: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=33820&start=163


Micro-USB power

The micro-USB port has a power output of 0.1A, enough to power USB key, keyboard, mouse, camera, etc. It doesn't have enough power to run a USB HDD, unless the HDD is self-powered.

Workarounds include using a powered USB hub, and a Y-splitter cable connected to a power source (portable battery pack, AC outlet, or a laptop).

The A101 model's full-size USB slot has a power output of 0.5A, equivalent to a PC USB port. It can be used to power most peripherals w/o need for an external power source.


Archos 32 Composite-Out Video Cable

http://anythingbutipod.com/2006/04/zen- ... m-pinouts/

Image

Note that Archos' composite-out cable is only one of four variants. One Archos-specific cable source:

http://cgi.ebay.com/AV-A-V-Cable-Cord-A ... 563846f365

Otherwise, search for "creative zen vision composite cable" to find a compatible cable.

Some more info I gathered see viewtopic.php?f=63&t=37186

Maurice

===================================================================

Hi nz,

1) Will the USB host on the gen8 support NTFS or EXT3 formatted drives?
2) As I understand correctly the internal memory can only be formatted in FAT32?
3) Is the USB host on the 101 also max 100 mA ?

Thanks,

Maurice

The answers:

1) ext3 (and hopefully ntfs) are going to be added
2) FAT32 is the only option
3) it is 500mA on the A101


Thanks to peterx:

peterx wrote:
Sadly, but these are the limitations of A43 and A70 100mA (wich is around 0.5W):
-USB Flash max usage is around 115mA - that means most will work.
-SSD drives consume from 1 to 3W - won't work.
-1.8 inch drives consume from 1.5 to 2.0W - won't work.
-2.5 inch drives consume from 3 to 5W - won't work.

A101 is a bit better. Its limit is around 2.5W. So all USB Flash will work, all 1.8 inch, most SSD and some 2.5 inch.

There are at least four options to go around the limitations:
1. Buy an HDD case ith external power adapter (I have one but do not use it now - too big and heavy).
2. Buy a USB battery pack or make one (http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/). Should do the job with a Y cable.
3. Hope Archos will offer a docking station later this year.
4. Powered USB Hub


Thanks to d00b:

Anybody figured out how to install the ADB driver for the Archos 32IT? There's no mentioning yet in the archos download section. I have put in a request with archos, but was hoping for a faster answer here...
Thanks!


Google finally managed to introduce a configuration file for ADB, so you do not need to recompile if you want to use it with other but the built-in VIDs. For Archos devices you need to

Code:
echo "0x0e79" >~/.android/adb_usb.ini


or on Windows:

Code:
echo 0x0e79 >> "%USERPROFILE%\.android\adb_usb.ini"


Then you can use the adb that comes with the R3 or R4 SDK (or probably also the one that is in current SVN trunk). Remember to "sudo killall adb" to get rid of all already running ADB servers.

http://appslib.com/applications/index.html

NOTE: The gen8 has no access to Google's Android Marketplace. It could be that there can will be a hack in the future to enable it like with the gen7, but it could also be that that never happens.
NOTE 2: SDE will also be released for gen8
NOTE 3: All gen8 have 256 Mb RAM except 28 has 128Mb

I added some videos to my first post. BTW, my store.archos.com links may only apply to US and Canada, but I think you can shorten the link or hit the store button to get into other countries. They should give more accurate info on say the gb of flash memory, which I think is somewhat different than is listed on the grey/yellow picture above.

So I guess the 101 (and the 70) can only be charged through the charging connector, and not through any of the USB connectors?! That means you can't charge it from a PC, you would have to carry the power brick with you. Hopefully though it will have enough battery capacity to make it through the day...

Hi im new to the forums but i have been following archos since they announced the gen8 lineup. I'm really interested in the archos 43 as i currently have a ipod touch(looking to get rid of it) and that would be the perfect thing to replace it.

Anyway do you know if it supports gps recievers(a usb gps reciever preferably) so if you have one in a way it could still be used as a gps. Just curious really. Im super excited that you can plug other usb devices to it(keyboard, flash driver, and such)

Nobody except someone from archos can answer your question right now. The devices (43, 70 and 101) aren't released yet, but looking at the info we got right now it is a no and IMO will stay a no in the stock firmware.

We'll make this a sticky, at least for a little while. As viking has stated please post no rants or crap here. If you have information to add that answers typical questions please post that, or a link to the thread that answers those questions. If you have typical questions that may already have 4 or 5 threads covering them do a search first before posting it here. I can't say that enough. Do a search before posting a question here. Use this thread to post answers, or links to answers, for typical questions.

Please add available app space when known. If just a few hundred megs, app fans will avoid these devices, but web and email junkies only will not notice. Apps2sd still results in a few hundred megs of device space filling quickly.

This post is kind of a teaser, which I may delete as it falls out of date. I took the official Archos FAQs page (currently found as next to last link on the first post of this topic) and opened up all but the most nitty gritty answers so you could read them in a flow instead of needing umpteen clicks. The original is formatted prettier, but this lazy version may help some folks notice some possibly surprising revelations:

ARCHOS GEN 8 FAQ EXCERPTS wrote:
What to check first
Make sure your WiFi Internet connection is working...
Check the user manual...

Make sure you have the latest firmware...
This is one of the most important things you should do. Firmware updates are important to install because they add new functionality, improve functionality, and/or fix bugs. If you can connect by WiFi to the Internet, then go to Menu > Settings > About Device > Firmware update to see if a newer one is proposed. If you do not have a WiFi connection to the Internet, you can update your device by downloading the latest firmware to your computer and transferring it to your ARCHOS using the USB cable. See the ÔÇÿHow to install a firmwareÔÇÖ on the download page of the ÔÇÿSupportÔÇÖ section.

Make sure your battery is completely charged...
Make sure that your battery is completely charged by connecting it to its power adapter (ARCHOS 70, 101) or to your computer (ARCHOS 28, 32, 43) (or by using a USB style wall charger) for 8 hours or until the green charging indicator light blinks. If using a USB wall charger, make sure it is rated 5 volts 1A (1000 mA).

WiFi
I have problems making a WiFi connection. What can I do?

Android User Interface and applications
What does Aldiko eBook reader offer in terms of range and pricing of books?
There are currently many classics as well as modern books in various languages available for free download. These are free public domain works. There are also hundreds of fiction, non-fiction, technical, and other books for purchase. Install other ebook applications for more content.

Can I download apps from the Android Market? How?
No. However if .apk files are available on the Internet from the maker of one of the applications found on the Android Market, then there is no reason you could not download it from their site and use it (so long as it does not require a piece of hardware that the ARCHOS does not have. Ex : compass, telephone, GPS).

What e-books can I view on the ARCHOS?
Non-protected books published in the eBook or ePub format are readable on the ARCHOS with the free AldikoÔäó application. You can also find dedicated apps for ebooks such as one for Kindle from Amazon.

What magazines / newspapers will users be able to read on their devices?
You can download the application ÔÇ£World NewspapersÔÇØ or ÔÇ£Daily paperÔÇØ for free from AppsLib which will allow you to read dozens of different newpapers from around the world. You will also find that a number of newspapers have dedicated apps to access their web site.

Will the Archos connect to popular photo sharing sites like Flickr?
Currently the included Photo Frame application connects and shows pictures from accounts (or keywords) from FlickrÔäó, PicassaÔäó, and Facebook.

Can I read ÔÇÿofficeÔÇÖ type documents on these devices eg: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF files?
The three larger internet tablets come with a trial office suit application (30 days) already installed to read the above mentioned files. There are also other PDF reader applications freely available on AppsLib.

What happens if I download a paid app and then delete it by mistake ÔÇô How do I get it back?
AppsLib keeps track of which programs you purchased and will let you reload them at anytime.

Will users be able to synchronise with business email and contacts via company Microsoft Exchange servers?
Yes, this is supported in Android 2.1. Exchange servers with certificates will be supported in the upcoming Android 2.2 ÔÇ£FroyoÔÇØ release.

What do I do if an app gets stuck or functions incorrectly?
Your application may need to be updated. Go to the AppsLib and tap on the menu icon and then MyApps. It will show you which of your apps have updates that can be downloaded. If updating your application does not help the problem, you could try uninstalling the application (use the Uninstall app found in the applications tab) and then reinstall it from AppsLib.

How do I pay for the purchasable Apps?
ARCHOS has chosen to partner with PayPal, the most popular on-line payment system available. Getting a PayPal account is free.

Can users download games from outside of the Appslib store to play on their device ex: FlashÔäó-based games?
The internet tablets currently do not play .swf format files (FlashÔäó-based games). When version 2.2 of AndroidÔäó becomes available for the ARCHOS internet tablets, this will allow you to play on-line FlashÔäó games.

How do I download Apps from AppsLib?
Simply tap on the AppsLib icon on the home screen and you will be connected to the store where all the free and purchasable applications are located.

Can users download books from other online stores directly to their ARCHOS and read them using Aldiko?
If the format is the open standard .epub format, it will work by dropping it into the ÔÇ£ImportÔÇØ folder of the Aldiko application. Many GoogleÔäó Books (books.google.com) are also available in the .epub format.

Are there other eBook Reader options?
Yes, there are also the apps WattPad and AVcomics. The apps for Amazon and Barns & Nobels book stores should be available soon on AppsLib.

Internet
Why canÔÇÖt I view web sites that have FlashÔäó video or FlashÔäó games?
When the update to AndroidÔäó Froyo (version 2.2) is available, you can update your ARCHOS device to this version of AndroidÔäó and it will have the FlashÔäó 10.1 player included which will allow you to play FlashÔäó video content and FlashÔäó games on the web.

What kind of performance can users expect via USB or Bluetooth® tethering?
Using the internet is swift when tethering with a 3G phone. Depending on your telecomÔÇÖs access speed, using the Internet via your 3G phone will be no different than using it via a WiFi connection.

Can the devices connect to 3G dongles via USB?
Not for the moment. However, you can connect your phone for tethering via the USB host port (optional USB host cable required).

Will the ARCHOS internet tablets tether with 3G capable phones (USB or Bluetooth®) to allow web access via my 3G phone?
Yes. Almost all 3G Bluetooth┬« phones these days use the standard BluetoothÔäó profiles DUN or PAN. The ARCHOS 28 model however, cannot tether via Bluetooth┬« but only by USB. Note that some telephones which have 3G and Bluetooth┬« (such as some Blackberry devices) specifically do not allow tethering. You can, of course, tether the A28 to a phone that has WiFi routing capabilities such as some Android phones.

How do I tether the ARCHOS to my phone in order to get Internet outside of WiFi areas?
After an initial setup of pairing your phone to your ARCHOS, each time you want to use the Internet, you just go to the power control widget and turn on Tethering. The ARCHOS will connect to your phone (you might have to tap a button on your phone to say ÔÇ£YesÔÇØ allow the ARCHOS to connect) and use it as a modem to connect to the Internet. See the full user manual for exact step-by-step instructions.

General
What version of AndroidÔäó is on the devices?
The ARCHOS devices were released with version 2.1 known as ÔÇ£EclairÔÇØ. The devices are updatable to the next Android release version 2.2 known as ÔÇ£FroyoÔÇØ.

Why are the devices not Google certified?
Google requires devices to have a specific hardware profile in order to be certified. This includes having GPS, compass, telephone, and specific screen resolutions. Considering the number of Android devices entering the market, the great majority are not certified. Google could of course change their requirements.

How do the devices charge?
The A28, A32 and A43 charge via the USB connector. The A70 and A101 charge via the included power charger/adapter.

Why do I have to update my firmware?
Updates bring increased performance, new features, and bug fixes. It is best to update your device when it gives you the possibility to do so. Make sure you have the latest update so that you can get all the benefits that each update brings.

Why does my ARCHOS internet tablet only have Android 2.1 on it? How can I get Android 2.2 onto it?
The ARCHOS update software will be available in Q4 of 2010. When it is available, you will be notified when you connect your device to the Internet by WiFi. At this point, follow the screen instructions to download and install it onto your device.

What is AndroidÔäó?
It is the most popular open software platform for portable devices. Games and applications of all different types are now available and new exciting ones are yet to come due to its open architecture.

What is different between this yearÔÇÖs and last yearÔÇÖs models?
This year there is a faster processor inside the device and there are more choices of screen size and resolutions. Some devices have a tablet format which include webcams. This yearÔÇÖs devices run version 2.1 of Android and will be updatable to version 2.2 when that version becomes available. The screens are very reactive and the larger A70 and A101 models have capacitive multi-touch screens.

What makes AndroidÔäó attractive?
Android has the development muscle of Google. AndroidÔäó is open source. This means hundreds of hardware manufacturers can implement Android without cost, which will drive this to become the dominant mobile platform. It is completely opened to software developers without a central censoring authority. The competing Apple library of mobile applications is censored by a group of employees that decide what they think is appropriate and what is not.

What Gen 7 accessories are compatible with the new internet tablets?
There are no accessories common to the ARCHOS 5 internet tablet and the new line of internet tablets (ARCHOS 28, ARCHOS 32, ARCHOS 43, ARCHOS 70, ARCHOS 101).

What is the battery life when WiFi is activated?
When the WiFi is activated, on a full charge, you can surf the web for 6 hours (A28), 8 hours (A32), 12 hours (A43), 10 hours (A70 and A101).

Can these devices connect to my television?
Yes, you can connect them to your TV. You can see and do all the same things you do on your device (videos, music, internet, games). The ARCHOS 32 has a composite video output (yellow RCA cable) and the ARCHOS 43, 70, and 101 have an HDMI video output port (optional standard mini-HDMI cable required) which can output crystal clear high definition images to your HD TV. The ARCHOS 28 does not have video output.

Troubleshooting
I cannot update the firmware because I do not have a WiFi connection. What can I do?

I cannot turn on my device, what should I do?
Make sure the battery is fully charged. Connect it to its power charger/adapter (ARCHOS 70, 101) or a running computer with the USB cable (ARCHOS 28, 32, 43)and allow it to charge until the battery light on the side of the device blinks (this could take several hours).

My device ÔÇ£frozeÔÇØ. What do I do? How do I prevent that?
If your device freezes, press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. This will shut off the device. Restart as normal. To prevent this, make sure you are running the latest version of the firmware. Check by going to Menu > Settings > About Device > Firmware Update.

Battery & Power
The battery of my ARCHOS is completely drained and the device will not charge.
If the battery is completely drained, charge it by connecting it to the USB port of your computer (ARCHOS 28, 32, 43) or the charger/adapter (ARCHOS 70,101), but do not attempt to start the unit with the power on/off button. When the unit gets enough power it will start by itself (this could take a few hours). Even when started, do not use it until it is fully charged.

My battery runs out very quickly, what can I do?
The AndroidÔäó Mobile Technology Platform was conceived such that the device can be woken up from suspend triggered from applications (ex: check emails every 10mn). As a consequence if you have network applications running in the background (that are auto launched at boot) that are network hungry (ex: checking the weather every 2 minutes) this will have an impact on the battery drain. If you are not using the WiFi, shut it off. Same for the Bluetooth┬«. A screen set to the brightest also drains energy from the device. Set your device as well to have its screen go off after 2 minutes of non-use. These things will help your battery conserve energy.

Is it possible to charge the ARCHOS with a standard USB power adapter?
Yes. There are commercially available charger/adapters that plug into a wall outlet or your car cigarette lighter which have a USB port which will charge your device. Only purchase ones from a reputable brand. Some do not charge as well as others.

Video / Photo / Music
Can users download music from online stores and play on their ARCHOS?
Yes, because the most popular online stores now deliver music without Digital Rights Management (non-protected).

What media file formats do the ARCHOS internet tablets support?
ARCHOS is known for its extensive range of file support. Most of all music, video and photo formats are supported right out of the box. Please refer to the spec sheets (available on the web site) for specific details.

Can I use / transfer content I have on my Apple to use on the ARCHOS?
Any unprotected photo, video or music file can be transferred to the ARCHOS and will play without problem.

Can I sync my music, photo, and video content from Windows® Media Player or iTunes® to an ARCHOS internet tablet?
Yes, you can sync your non-protected media files from Windows Media Player directly to your ARCHOS. For iTunes, you can just go to your iTunes folder on your computer that has your music and copy/paste it to the ARCHOS music folder. There are 3rd party applications such as doubleTwistÔäó which allow you to do this as well.

How can I transfer existing content ÔÇô music, video, pictures - from my PCs or Mac to the Archos?
Just connect your PC to the ARCHOS and drag and drop your media files to the proper folder. Put music into Music, photos into Pictures, and videos into Video. You can also copy your files directly (no computer involved) from USB storage devices (camera, USB stick, hard drive, etc.) to your ARCHOS 101 or with the optional USB host cable to the ARCHOS 32, 43, or 70. Finally, you can also copy them via WiFi from your Windows® shared folders.

Yep...not a big deal...2.2 will be here soon and until then I guess I'll get my A70 loaded with apps and music and ebooks...

Please don't post questions or dialogue here - start your own topic for them. Although this is where they should end up if they prove universal enough, this should be kept sparse for easy lookup. I have been trying to keep the first post somewhat up to date (except for endless videos).

NOTE TO MODERATORS; someone has hacked this thread to insert some "tradedoubler" link into each url= link specification. I guess it was intended to be transparent, but it clobbered the links and put them in the wrong language at the least. I tried to clean it up, but it may strike again.

Can I download apps from the Android Market? How?
No. However...


Actually, the market apk can be downloaded which will allow one to download market apps. The market app worked the first time on fw 1.0.84 w/ android 2.1. I have uninstalled appslib (which can be downloaded again from archos' website if needed).

You can get the market apk for android 2.1 here.

Some download links in the above threads work, some don't.
