Re: 2nd Archos died on me

Searched but found nothing; no I'm getting code 108 but same thing; repair or format and nothing after that, no way to get a file onto the system. I think I'm well and truly screwed.

Re: 2nd Archos died on me

I think it's the hard drive too as the problem started with a grinding sound. And even now every now and then I can hear a grinding sound. The unit turns on now and comes to the code 102 screen, but whether I choose repair or format, it ask me to connect to pc and install an updatre file; when i con...

Re: 2nd Archos died on me

Hmmm.... you've given me something to think about mate! I thought so too but it does come on for a bit with the format screen. When it starts the format/fix it goes off. How would I know that the battery is dead, how can that be checked?

Re: 2nd Archos died on me

Cause I'm in India, dunno if Vuze will work here. And I like to record tv shows, current affairs, science, history kinda shows, etc. Mainly off the tele.

Re: 2nd Archos died on me

Because I can see no other alternative to an Archos for the moment. Especially the portable DVR functionality.

2nd Archos died on me

Earlier my 504 just dies and now the 605 wifi 160 gb died for now reason. It was always docked, never manhandled and a couple of days ago I switched it off after watching something. Within 5 mins it started making a whirring, screeching kind of sound and stopped working. I've tried reset, master res...

My troubles started with the 504 refusing to boot, then it booted once and came up with the FAT corrupted error; then when I rebooted it came with the recovery code 2 error. Today I followed the instructions in this thread for my 504 160 gb. Still no luck, though I don't get the recover (code 2) err...

problems with some mpg/mpeg files

Hi, On my 504 some mpgs/mpegs don't play at all; some play but when I fwd while they're playing it just jumps to the end of the file and the next one starts playing. I have noticed this happens mainly with mpgs/mpegs who's thumbnail is not displayed in the video list. Now is there any program that I...

Yup I second that proposal; sticky the reset button thingie. The power button was useless for me too.

Roylovelock, you are a life saver. My 3yr old last night dropped my 504-160GB and it just stopped working after that. I thought it's all over, when I plugged in the battery the green power light came on and stayed on; nothing more. After reading this post I did the reset and voila, it started workin...

If you're doing a lot of TV recording and general video you will find the 30 gb too small for you needs.

As a little update, and to confuse anyone looking at this thread for the first time :lol: I purchased a Buffalo Ministation 120 GB USB pocketdrive as it was suggested in an earlier post that it worked without any additional power. 1) Plugged it into the DVR station, could hear it clicking but would...

As far as selling for 25% off. No way in heck. Complete refund or it's not worth the expense.
I meant sell it on ebay after a few months if you're not satisfied. I didn't mean sell it for 25% less within the return time period; now that would be foolish :-)

I did read the other thread and then I did several searches to see how widespread it is. I started this thread to get a fresh viewpoint on the issue. It's too bad because the size was perfect. I guess I have to choose between the Creative W 60gb (no recording) or wait on a bigger Cowan. Too bad. :(...
