Re: 604 and 504 FAQ

Q: How best to sync MP3s & playlists with a PC? A: Use MediaMonkey, but use the Archos in "PC Hard Drive" mode and configure MediaMonkey to access it via it's "USB Mass Storage" plugin, not the (default?) WMD plugin. (See Tools/Options/"Portable/Audio Devices"). Sync tracks to "\Music\..." (e.g. "\M...

So is there any easy way of doing playlists apart from in Media Monkey? What was the problem with MM, out of interest? I've not used it much, but was just able to trivially create a playlist with it on my PC and then, after connecting my 504 as a Media Device , sync the playlist (and automagically,...

Is it possible to make new folders for video, either separate or as new subdirectories? How is this done? can it be doen within Windows?
Yes - just connect it as a HD, then use Explorer as normal, but note that the Video app defaults it's working view to be the top-level 'thumbnail' view.[/quote]

Perfect, thank you much. So would jpgs be dropped directly in the Pictures directory? Would creating a sub directory under pictures and dropping the jpgs there help to organize them into albums? Videos drop directly into the video directory? Yes, yes & yes. :-) There are a few oddities with the Arc...

This 'representative' listing any use... Obviously, the drive letter depends on personal setup. You may also see "_arcthumb" sub-folders , which should be ignored.

Hmm, I'd not seen that thread...

You know, I'd give them the benefit of the doubt as to having a reason behind it (e.g. minimising transaction costs, etc) if they were actually to bill in GBP, but as the UK site/shop works in EUR anyway, I've no sympathy...

I was hoping Archos would add a device to dissipate static Cotton socks? While I've not seen the issue, my 504 lives in a case, so maybe the fact that before I use it I practically always have touched the case comes into play. On the other hand, there may well be other factors - as you said, climat...

Well, if using a 604wifi in your own WiFi area, you can just mount network drives for more space.

I have a home wifi set-up already. Maybe you could be right, I could use it for basic surfing at home and on the move. Can you transfer files from PC via wifi?? No idea - I've got the WiFi but a 504 not the 604w! :-) Seriously, take a look at the dedicated 604 WiFi forum next door, as while there's...

My dilemma now is, 604 or 604 wifi. Well, do you either have a home WiFi network or expect to spend a reasonable amount of time within range of one? I ended up going for a 504/80, as I thought I'd be spending much of the time with it travelling & the extra capacity would allow a lot more choice - I...

Hmm - maybe try something other than explorer to copy, e.g. a trial of Beyond Compare, or an Explorer replacement? (I use Directory Opus, but there are freeware options).

No particular reason, just trying to see if things change...

(I wonder if a bootable DVD of Ubuntu would see the usb device?)

The problem is with the PC slowing down to a crawl when the Archos is connected in HD Mode. Disconnecting the Archos brings it back to life again.... :( That sounds like something entirely different... Try doing a "REGSVR32 /U SHMEDIA.DLL" from a command prompt and see if that helps.
