Thanks for the advice.. Ive been trying to get the most out of the A504 and MMonkey.. playlists and device synch should work.. Tagging on-the-go and automatic playlists, when you work them through are great for reaching the right music at the right time in large collections. Ive found MMonkey allows...

Pollo Loco.... One question... How do you organize your 35Gigs of music in the Archos?? I mean folder structure... I have: Music/album artist/then a filename.mp3 That makes for about 1500 folders with no subfolders in each (except for any that the A504 makes itself...) I think that having so many fo...

Thank you Roy... Filled out your survey... Nice work!!! If this doesnt raise the attention of Archos Quality then it is clear that they care NOT AT ALL for their customers and they will continue to market ANY underdeveloped product as long as they can cheat us into buying it... Personally I feel che...

I second that Roy..

Using it in Windows Media Player mode will synchronize all files in your library (including newly added files)

What format are your playlists??

Do they appear on the archos as .M3U or .PLA??


Do they actually work when you play tracks from a playlist on your archos???

Can you change songs within the playlist without the buttons locking up????


How do you do it??????

Hello Martinjay, Thank you for your concern. And thank you for the time. I have tried so many things.. I have spent way too much time trying to fix this.

Media Monkey Synchronization. mp3 vs MP3

Still having all sorts of problems with playlists... They will always lock up when playing in the Archos 504. Now something new and strange.... Synchronizing from Media Monkey.. files in my HDD are all with x.mp3 extension and the tracks inside playlists are tagged .mp3. When I synchronize to A504, ...

Sorry to insist... I'm just thinking about it again and its quite crazy: Depending on how you tag your .mp3 you get one new folder and two new files for each .MP3. For example, in folder structure: Music/Artist/song.mp3 OK, that is, one song = one folder, one file. after putting it on the A504 and l...

All those "_archlib" folders added with .ATF files of 34 Kb each for each file???? .alb files.... What is that about???? I have...

More... It seems that any mp3 that is on a playlist, even when playing from Artist or Album or Genre folders will show this problem. If you play these files (which show specially marked on the file list) 504 controls dont work while the hard drive spins - I guess - looking for tags... It finally fin...

Worse than it seemed

Been following through your posts due to similar problems with 504 synching with Media Monkey. I can finally sync playlists ok. They download to 504 and tracks appear on the playlist. The problem is that once a playlist is selected and track is played it takes forever for the song to start playing. ...
