If you have a docking or travel? adaptor, yes you can connect in the field. But you cannot (afaIk) with just the normal cable.

You will need one of the adaptors, docking would would fine. Compatability is not 100% with all cameras....

So you have no files on it but it is full?

Could be windows recycle bin problems, hook it up then clear the recycle bin.

The "plugins" are not really plugins as such. Archos simply provide a licence file to activate some already built in functionality in the player. If your're looking for somthing to "poke around in" try the firmware updates, its a far more obvious way to add functionalty (like for instance stopping y...

You don't need to remove the letterbox during encoding,

During playback press Menu, goto format and select maximised.

Bars gone....

However you can now only see the zoomed centre of the picture, but you can't have everything.

Autogk and Pocketdivx encoder are two examples of programs that will re-encode to the correct format. And both handle changing dvd's to the correct format too. And they are free!! There is a licencing cost associated with the plugins and Archos's current model of selling players in a "vanilla" forma...

My advice,

Start again, and use autogk or pocketdivxencoder to create an AVI file from the DVD decrypter output. They are both dead easy to use and free.
