Not too obscure. But entering a zipcode always works anywhere. But you can't do that on the weather thing. Also, is there a good messenger site for the archos 605? My dad likes to keep in touch with his mom on MSN. The iPod touch did meebo.com fabulously. The 605, however, doensn't. Any recomendation?

weather widget problem. We don't exist!

My dad got an Archos 605 wifi after taking back an iPod touch. He finally bought the web browser. But we have a problem with the weather widget. We'll begin to type our location it, but it doesn't have us. Our location isn't there. My dad -loved- the weather thing on the touch. Is there a solution h...

Too late in the game to be getting one?

Hiya. I want an Archos 504 40GB for Christmas. 'Cause I've been wanting one for a looong time. But, the 605 is out and about. Though that costs too much. My parents can get me a 504 for about $210 with shipping at PC Connection. But I'm sure the firmware updates will stop coming in. And it may have ...

Re: 30GB 605 wifi vs 40GB 504?

Another big one you failed to mention is screen resolution. The extra resolution makes a huge difference for the web and allows you to include smaller captions if you so desire. I did see that. But I didn't believe it mattered for me. Though I AM interested in this... "Get one for $240." Because th...

30GB 605 wifi vs 40GB 504?

Hi. Long ago, I yearned for an Archos 504. But something happened to my source of.. Er.. Content. So, I opted for the next item on my list, a Nintendo DS (which is a bundle of fun, if you've got a little over 200 bucks to spend). But now, I look at my forever dying iRiver H10, who's lucky to get 4 h...

Sniff of the G5 series bringing prices down?

Well, I've been eyeing recent 504 40GB prices lately. B&H Photo had the lowest, RELIABLE price. There was a price of $275 from one vendor, but they looked new, and had a total of 37 ratings. 4 and a half stars, though. B&H had theirs priced at $275 ($285 by the time shipping for my area) And now B&H...

If you decide to opt for an Archos 604, I'd reccomend an Archos 504. Why? It's cheaper (crazy, ain't it?) 10 Gigs more space. Plays .Vob files (or at leat I'm pretty sure) Longer battery life. Though the downsides is that it's bigger and doesn't have a built-in kickstand. But I don't know if you sho...

Thanks. But I looked at the (limited)reviews.

There are 23 of them, 3 of them negative.

I'm a bit skeptic of using them, as 10 dollars more can net me one from a reliable company.

www.bargains101.com/electronics/9006.html?pg Seems Bargains101 had taken the lead as the cheapest retailer of an Archos 504 40GB. Free shipping to US (Continental). $275. But what intrigues me more is this. What's in the Box Archos 504 portable media player, headphones, dedicated USB 2.0 cable, DVR...

Archos 504 price rise?

The Archos 504 40GB was on TigerDirect for 269.99 plus shipping. But now, prices all around have jumped at least $30 each! Pricegrabber says Dell.com has it for $271 with shipping (free tax and shipping charges), but when you click, it gives a "Coudj't find page" deal. When you go to the site and tr...

Well, I've made my choice; The docking adapter it is.

Do I really need the Archos DVR Station?

Well, I've been determined to get the Archos 504 40GB. Saving up as we speak with a grand total of 40 bucks (Only 250 to go!) And I've been contemplating. I am NOT going to rely on USB to charge my Archos. I want to be able to use my Archos and charge at the same time. And faster, too. So, I thought...

I'll be beggining to drive, and I'm at the least terrible with remembering where I am. Archos, you tricky dog, you. I just hope it's affordable like the '04. New...

.WMV not exactly friendly with Pocket Divx

So... I periodically make a movie or two with Windows Movie Maker... And it saves in .WMV, which I believe can't play on the archos. So I go to use old trusty pocketdivx, but it can't seem to find any of the files. It'll pick up anything else, but it doesn't wanna convert .WMV files. Am I in a stick...

I just tried the technique showed here, and it made a mockery of those 17 to 20 minutes by converting the converted file in... a minute and... a half. Tops. Same size and E...
