Archos 504 and Firmware Update

Been a while since I last used this device and I found FW version 1722 but my 504 will not recognize it... Is FW update 1722 the most current? My current version is 1653. I dropped the 1722 into the root directory but my 504 does not recognize it and will not update to 1722! Am I missing something h...

DVD To ARCHOS

I have the same model and I just use a program called "ANY DVD" to decrypt my DVDs (Runs silently in the background) and use "Clone DVD Mobile" all made by Slysoft. I rip everything in the format I want with CDVDM then just transfer the ready made file over to the player. I have both plug-ins alread...

504 Update?

Anyone know when the next firmware update for the 504 will come out? Last update was in March. Any idea what will be fixed?

DVD-WMV Guide?

Does anyone have a link for the how to or step by step procedures for the DVD-WMV program? Trying to copy a DVD to my HDD so I can save it for later.

Thanks...

HDD Swap out.

Here is the biggest question with regards to the 504...can you swap out the HDD on the 604 Wi-Fi? If so...there will be a run on them since they only come in a 30gb version.

MPEG4 files

Does anyone know if the .mpeg4 extenstion files that are used for the iPod are compatible with the Archos 504? If so, I should be able to view my iPod movies on the Archos and maybe only have to readjust the screen sizing whenn recording? I already have both plug-ins installed.

I keep seeing this question over and over again and keep saying the same ole thing...BUY Slysofts "AnyDVD and Clone DVDMobile" programs and be done with it all...they support more PMPs than most and that's why I bought it! AnyDVD breaks the CSS code while DVD Mobile copies and creates one file witho...

The Noreve case is a QUALITY case and I would recommend it to everyone! It is not made to hold the 504 while in any charger...you have to remove it from the case then place it in the charger...charger slot is only big enough for the 504 and a snug fit so no extra room for a case or it would not fit ...

As stated above, the plug-ins are NOT transferable...mainly because they are assigned to the number on the unit via ARCHOS and therefore cannot be transfered...I had to buy one of them all over again when I upgraded to the 160gb unit! If you buy the unit directly from ARCHOS...MAYBE they will re-ins...

Just a Positive Note

Just wanted to say THANKS to all the many folks who provide the rest of us novices with help making our new Archos players more enjoyable! Even though the manual NEEDS TO BE READ! I grabbed the 504 160gb. Tech support can't always respond as quick as we'd like and many of the postings I've received ...

Thanks for the reply as the Archos diagram is not very good for this. Yes the R-Y-W is the cable supplied with the station. I have the 504 160gb. If I have a Hi-Def DVR box then it has 5 cables into the TV from the DVR. So I'm screwed there. My other TV has the coax video cable directly from the wal...

DVR Station Connections

Ok I'm stumped here...with the DVR station, you are basically placing it in the "LOOP" with your TV...but the diagram shows you have to have "R-Y-W" (Audio-Video) IN & OUT on your TV like on the DVR Station. None of my TVs have an OUT. I have plenty of INs though. I can't remember ever seeing a TV w...

Much to my surprise...(I went back and re-tried my old cables) the standard 3.5 plug to R-Y-W RCA connector cables I had for other uses...I was using for my Sony CamCorder, iPod and other devices which are not from Sony but standard video cables DO work with the Archos 504 for TV/Video out!

Reporting Bugs/Fixes or Suggestions to Archos

Does anyone or can someone post a link to the site where anyone can make sugestions directly to Archos in hopes of fixing or improving the 504?

I see many postings where Archos is listening but not sure what link they are using. I'm sure Tech support is not the POC.

Hate to keep saying it but Slysoft's "Clone DVD Mobile coupled with AnyDVD for CSS decrypting" is the way to go...quick and easy!

Ok all...I need some help here...I got the 3.5 to r-w-y RCN plug cable for the Archos that plugs into the headphone jack and for the likes of me I can not get any movies to come up on my TV screen! I'm in an NTSC country so that's all set, is there a special setting on the Archos I'm suppose to have...
