Warning to 504 users

I have had my 504 for about 3 years. I has had very limited use of once a week or less. I have the docking station and it spends much of its time on there. I had it running in my bedroom playing a movie tonight. I went out of the room for 10min and when I went back, I heard a vey fast "buzzz" sound....

Is it just me, or is Archos spending more time locking drives then fixing bugs and improving the software...

nope
Archos has refused to release the SDK, and from what I heard, they have locked the hardware to only work with their software.

cool. wish I was there.

after months of looking here in Canada, I decided to grab the JBL on the go speaker system. Its a big large for my taste, but they make amazing sound....not to mention, they retail for $99 at the local futureshop/bestbuy but I got them for $34cnd.

That happens to me sometimes when I put my 604 into the DVR station, while the 604 is on. It also happens when I zap it with static electricity (accidentally of course). So, now I have learned to always dock the archos with it turned off, docking it turns it on automatically. And, of course, I try ...

Do what I do. Write reviews and express your disappointment, many retailers allow you to post consumer reviews. Not that its going to change anything, but letting people know, letting retailers know, emailing Archos themselves and letting them know that your unhappy is about all you can do.

I didnt.
Im not paying more to unlock a feature that should be free.
Some will argue that paying $20 more is to satisfy the production companies...but all it ends up being is Archos digging for more loot.
not to be negative or anything

Is there any technical reason why the Archos wont work with a NTFS USB drive? or is it just that they dont want to make it work?

not much
The archos players volume is so incredibly low, even top notch headphones will always be far quieter then other media players.
Its a shame, for most videos, the speaker on the Archos is rendered usless.

good post XSportSeeker2

I think its becoming clear that the biggest problem with Archos is the company's greasy way of doing business.

Id be happy to sign my name saying if they didnt, I would gladly never purchase an archos product again, and be happy to tell others not to also, including review sites. Personally, I have posted several negative reviews...
