Re: broadband connection

Did you get the "MiFi" device? Or the USB dongle?

The Verizon MiFi supports up to five wireless connections, USB dongle only a single laptop.

Re: How do I reset my A7 IMT back to factory?

You're gonna lose any plugins, and risk bricking it. Then it's unsellable.

Re: Connect External HDD

The Archos 7 doesn't HAVE a USB port. If the minidock doesn't work, then you're SOL.

Re: donwloading photos from Camera/computer

You need the minidock (not the battery dock) which has a USB connector, then you need one of those USB card reader adapter thingies like you might see at WalMart, then you have to pray that it works because Archos is notorious for a very picky USB interface. Some devices work fine, while others don'...

Re: Feature Upgrade

Yes, it would have been nice. Too bad Archos didn't/doesn't listen to their customers, and could care less what they want.

Re: New to Archos

There's a podcast plugin, which may or may not enable standalone AAC. Check with Archos.

Another other option is to use iTunes to convert your audio to mp3.

The last I heard, Archos' "big plan" for the USA market was to sell netbooks at Blockbuster.

Re: Battery Dock, am I doing something wrong?

The battery dock doesn't work with the 7. Same thing happened to me, I never ACTUALLY tested it until after 30 days. Archos refused me any refund or credit. The insidious thing is that it was claimed at the Archos store to work with 5/7, it connects, shows up as a dock, the LED's light up, it SEEMS ...

Re: Archos sucks

Archos' original vision of a "cadillac" PMP that played open source codecs was a good one. Unfortunately, their DEV dept. was too lame and the product never fully evolved. A lot of us that shared the dream were taken advantage of towards the end and are left with half-baked devices. Archos...

Re: Archos 7 (160gb) and Mini Dock problem

There's a menu option somewhere to play out through the dock. Does the dock get recognized? Look around in there. I've done it many times but can't remember now.

The Archos records interlaced (480i), so use the composite connection from the Xbox.

Re: internet complaint

Of course Apple cares for its customers, they're an ongoing source of revenue. And I'll ask again, what's so groundbreaking? The OS? The packaging? Who cares? What about functionality? Bling-bling will only get you so far, unless that's all you care about. In that case "i-products" are the...
