Re: Weird behaviour from a 704 wifi

Right, after messing around with everything I could think of, I'm happy to announce that the faulty bit was.......the charger itself.

After swapping it out for the spare one, everything seems back to normal.

Weird behaviour from a 704 wifi

I've had my 704 for about two and a half years now, and never had any trouble with it. I use it daily to watch videos in the train to and from work. Two days ago, while transferring new video files (through the DVR station/USB), there was an audible 'clack' from the archos. The file transfer stopped...

Re: How is the finish of the 704 holding up?

Mine is holding up very well. Had it for 2 1/2 years now, and I use it for 2 hours almost every day (commuting to work by train). Still looks like new. No scratches or wear that would be visible to the unaided eye.

Damn I hope he hurries up and compiles that missing library for the '04's

This is going to be a historic day for our little devices.

This looks promising - ssh access to various archos devices

So far, 605 wifi, 705 wifi, 605 and 604 wifi seem to work. Anyone brave enough to try it on their 704 wifi?

If this works, it'll open up a world off possibilities. Think installing linux software, developing your own stuff, running emulators, etc.

As the Lacie drive is 2 TB I doubt that it is formatted as FAT32. Not so sure. The 32GB limit is artificially imposed by Microsoft in Windows. The actual fat32 FS works fine up to volume sizes of 2TB. File sizes are limited to 4GB. fdisk will gladly format your 2TB LaCie as fat32 and even Windows c...

Writing the description in french, yes. When you're sending a french rpoduct to a french repair team in France, that might seem like a reasonably good idea. As for the 'record' and 'transfer' mixup: I can see how that could be mistranslated. For instance: in german, the word for 'record' is 'aufnehm...

Well, despite the problems it has with recording, it's still an excellent device. The screen is beautiful and it plays back movies and music very nicely.

Is this maybe the origin of our 704 trouble?

I had a long-ish talk with an electrotech major on my way home from work. Apparently, he fixes portable devices (iPods, Cellphones, etc.) to earn some cash while he's at university. He mentioned that he'd had a few 704's recently, and he recons that the main design flaw is that the plug from the pow...

Well, to be honest, I never had any trouble with my 704. I know that many people do have trouble, but mine works just as it should. No freezes, no weird reboots etc.

The only thing I miss is the ability to use stuff like youtube. Oh, and the 160GB drive in the 705 is also tempting.

Just a simple question about these reboots: Do they happen if you have your device connected to the charger?

I ask, because this kind of behaviour reminds me of what my cellphone used to do, back when the battery was worn out.

704/705 docking station, battery.

Hi guys I have the 704 wifi, with two batteries and the DVR docking station. While I'm actually quite happy with it, I'm thinking of upgrading to the 705 for the added flash goodness in the browser. But before I try and hawk my 704, I need to know: Do the 704 and 705 take the same batteries? And is ...

Same here. I use mine daily, mostly to watch downloaded TV-series episodes on the train to work.

I use a pair of Etymotic Research ER-6 with my 704 and I'm very satified. I watch various Episodes of Tv series on my way to and from work every day. The isolation effect is the best I've ever experienced on any set of 'phones. Sound quality is great too, and the surround effect comes across nicely.

I've found that the slow and innaccurate response of the touchscreen on my 704 get's significantly better if I use a better stylus. I'm currently using the spare one from my phone, which has a much smaller and sharper point that the archos one, and the screen reacts pretty well (still a bit slow som...

elkhoud: that really is weird. The 704 should in theory be able to handle that, no sweat. It's screen goes up to 800x480 after all.
