Re: Archos Tech support email

The only way I've been able to contact archos in a timely manner is to call them. It took me weeks to get a response from Archos though email.

Re: Okay so yea I'm done with Archos.

Update: Yesterday morning I got an email saying my Archos 5 was shipped from the RMA center. I got the unit today at noon.
Now I just need to transfer my plugins and I'll be selling it on ebay.

Re: Bad Headphone Jack...

Is it possible just to RMA it and instead of getting another one that will just break to just get my money back for it, and buy a new one from somewhere else. Even a new model could have a headphone jack problem. I've sent my Archos 5 in three times for a bad headphone jack. The problem could be th...

Re: Okay so yea I'm done with Archos.

Sent Archos an email today asking about my RMA. EDIT: Okay this is a first. I sent an email to Archos asking about the progre...

Re: Okay so yea I'm done with Archos.

One good thing is they actually updated my RMA status when they received the package last week.
The other times I sent it in I had to email them to find out if they received it.

Re: Okay so yea I'm done with Archos.

So Archos finally answered my first RMA request and they sent me a shipping prepaid shipping label. So it's sent in for repair.

What also gets me is they never apologize for not answering your email or that my product has broken so many times or anything.
I might as well be talking to a computer.

Okay so yea I'm done with Archos.

The audio jack on my Archos 5 has broken for the third time. I sent in a RMA request and I've gotten no answer. I spent 20 minutes on hold twice and sent an email to Archos and never got an answer. When I do get a hold of Archos again and get my Archos 5 repaired I'm selling it. I've bought 5 of Arc...

Re: New video backgrounds

Thanks Tydude4Christ for the great video backgrounds! Even though it's a little illegal ;-). Anywho does anyone have the original video backgrounds? My Archos came back from repair and the original Archos pictures and videos are gone.

Re: Reinstall plugins but my serial key has changed...

Well all I know is that if you send your Archos in for repair when it comes back sometimes its a new unit and it has different serial and product numbers.

Re: One last check on the GPS holder before I buy

Hows the signal where you are? We had a Garmin it kept loosing signal where I live (Illinois, USA) and it couldn't find Besy Buy in Peoria Illinois! (it's a pretty big city) with updated maps. We returned it.
Another thing does anybody know if Archos going to supply it with updated maps?

Re: Archos 5 screen cracked!!! HELP!!!

I had my Archos 5 in my Archos AV400 stock leather case (a VERY nice fit, BTW), and the case was in the hidden pocket of my rather cushion-ee jacket, and I lowered the jacket by its collar to my waist and dropped it to the ground, and I guess that was enough to crack it. Blew my mind, not even a 1 ...

Re: MKV to WMV

But that doesn't mean you need a quad core and 8 gigs of ram. That's over kill as most applications are single threaded. Only a handful of apps are mutli-threaded to take advantage of multiple cores. A quad core would be useful for a gamer or a heavy duty video editor. As for ram having 8 gigs woul...

Re: battery life

I think it has more to do with constant disk access while using Opera. With movies the disk reads ahead about half the time, and music a quarter to an eighth of the time. No biomonky is correct the wifi is what hurts the battery. The same goes for the Touch and iPhone. talisker: Not only are you us...
