So I got USB Host Cable for Archos 70 from Ebay, get it home, hook up my Pentax K-X and.. nothing. Now I'm told I need Micro-A and not Mini A or B or WTF? USB Host Cable I was told was all I needed, no clue whether its Micro this or Mini that or..nothing appearing in Files when I connect camera. Very annoying. My old Archos AV500 could connect to the camera and the SD card reader no bother.
DejaVu - (I posted a similar rant that was taken down for being too confusing.)
AllenPapapetrou was kind enough to post a sticky that lists the best two options for U.S. users: http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=46555
I ordered the first one from DigiKey today. It costs 3 times as much as the cables that come directly from China but at least I won't have to wait 3 weeks to find out if it works or not. I too don't understand why the cable listed for the Archos 70 doesn't work for the Archos 70 Internet tablet.
I didn't order the second option as Archos support told me that those types of adapters do not work.
I put a link in the OP of this topic to the new locked sticky topic in the Gen8 Accessories subforum: USB Host Cables/Adapters that work - a list.
If by the "second option" you mean the PIM90 adapter that forum member Toonces reported working earlier in this topic, then I say it does work
! I trust Toonces over Archos support in this case.
If anyone knows a USB Host cable or adapter which works with a mouse please send me a Private Message so I can add it to our list.
