Again, I say: Handbrake. I've only had a few dvds that won't rip properly, and that's usually fixed by using a program to rip the image of the dvd, and then encoding the files. for mac (cause that's what i use for this), Mac the Ripper is a good program for ripping the dvd image onto your harddrive....

Contact Information

Hey there, Anyone who has contact info for any of the companies that make products for the Archos, or accessories that seem to be used most (i.e. Shure, newmp3technology.com, etc..), post it here. Perhaps the mods will make a sticky out of this, and then it'll be that much easier to get in touch wit...

In theory, this could work, right?

You'll have to change the ID tags on your PC first.

What did you use to rip the CD's? iTunes is a pretty easy fix.

Just go into the song info, and there's a pulldown menu for the genre.

Supported Documents

before anyone tells me to do a search, I already have.

I own an Archos 604. I was showing my pops the unit, and he is very interested in one.

His question is what types of documents will the Archos read, other than .PDF?

I'm kind of curious too. Anyone out there know?

Again, the Shure E2C.

I'm a nut about good sound quality, and these are by far the best headphones that I've ever used.

Get them, or be sorry! :p ;)

For the 704?... Well, I know for my 604 I can max out the settings, and have it play wonderfully. 720x... something. not too sure what it is, but I know that my encoder won't go any higher. So, if thats on the 604, I imagine that the 704 will handle just about anything you can dish at it. Happy enco...

vista's still basically a beta, so you're gonna have a 'fun' time finding support for for it.

Not too many things are working with it at this point. Wait for Service Pack 1 to be released for it, and you should be running pretty.

The Andy W is correct! I use the 2-pass encoding when I encode my dvd's as well. It doesn't make the file any larger, and it looks like a million bucks better. If you're using a Mac, I suggest Handbrake. Best program that I've found so far. And I'm encoding mine as .AVI, at an average of 1000kbps. I...

okay, here's the gig: edit - preferences - advanced: Select the 'General' tab in the Advanced preferences menu, and then select your Archos as the destination. Now, here's where it gets tricky. You can only select on folder to put things in. So, you can't split the movies up into the 'Video' folder,...

Sir, Some may be relatively ignorant to sound quality, and think that it should all sound the same. I, on the other hand, do take close notice to what I'm listening to. And by sending the message in this format, and wording as such, I tried to explain what the sound was doing. Perhaps you have a rea...

I went from a 60gb iPod, to a 30gb Archos 604. I thought at first that I was going to not like the transition back to a 30gb media player, but in all honesty, it's really not that big of a deal. The only problem that I've found so far is that I can't carry my entire music library with me. But even t...

Hell, I'm just glad that they're not an "Unknown Page' anymore.

At this point, maybe you could call in an order, and get them that way.

What exactly did Archos tell you?

I'm really not trying to be an ass, but it sounds almost like you got a confession signed in blood.

So, what's the word for word skinny (i.e. down-low, deal, what's going on, what did they say)?
