Re: Windows 8 on archos 9, anyone?

Anyone made any further progress with Windows 8 please ??

Just installed it via an upgrade from W7 and damn does it take a long time, but it's not usable.

I've installed the latest GMA drivers from Archos FTP site, plus the latest Galaxy drivers. but still not touch screen.

Gonna try this out.

I see - totally misinterpreted that comment :-)

I see MP3TECHNOLOGY have the 1.5Ghz, 250Gb version on pre-order for £329.

G9 101 Pricing question

Just a quick question, but can someone confirm that the 32Gb version will be the same price as the 250Gb version ?? Basing this question on the comment on the Archos site: " 32GB flash or a 250GB hard drive, it costs us manufacturers the same price, so why should you have to pay a premium for the ex...

Re: Jolicloud

Installed the OS and added the touchscreen and mouse workarounds. Everything works just fine, sound, screen mouse usb wifi etc.. What were the "touchscreen and mouse workarounds" please ?? Did you get the built-in KB to work, or did you use some other piece of software ?? I quite like Joli for it's...

Re: Jolicloud

Anyone persevered with JoliCloud on the A9 ??

Installs OK and works fine with a USB kb & mouse, but no touchscreen or Archos built-in KB & mouse.

Re: can any tell me how to watch movies without it jumping!

Hi candisfan.

What type of movies are you trying to play ??

I have 720p playing no problem, but 1080p does stutter abit, but I think that's becuase the A9 isn't MAN enough for 1080p.

That's sarcastic. With a powerless 1.2GHz CPU and only 1Gb RAM the A9 isn't really designed for Win7.

WinXP runs better on the A9.


Nothing like flaming with your first post !!

Re: XP Pro vs Win7 Business+

Go for Windows 7, as that is the OS that the A9 was designed for.

Or, wait until the Archos 101 comes out in October.

Depends if you wants Windows or Android.

What do you mean by "Finger flick scrolling" ?? It is available, unless we're talking about different things !! Is your Archos 9 set up as a tablet PC ?? Check in Control Panel->System and see if it says "Pen and Touch: Single Touch Input Available". If not, you may need to insta...

Re: ReadyBoost

I use an 8Gb microSD card and usb card reader and although it is recognised for ReadyBoost, I don't see any advantage.

Does anyone know a good way to benchmark ??

Re: Running Gparted to backup Factory HD

You've got a bunch CBers! I had a Jukebox FM Recorder which may be in drawer somewhere. I gave my 60G 5IMT to a friend when I found the 5IT would do everything the 5IMT did and more. I will say it's nice having Flash working on a tablet again. Not giving a personal opinion about Flash, just that a ...

Re: Running Gparted to backup Factory HD

Hi Allen. Glad to hear you've received your new toy :-) What OS do you intend putting onto the A9 ?? Apart from copying off the software and drivers that come with it, I trashed the disk and installed W7 Pro. The drivers and software are available from Archos' FTP site, so you don't need to copy the...
