605 vs 5

Hi There, I've had my 80GB 605 for over a year now and I'm very happy with it. BUT I'm considering buying a 120GB 5 but not sure if it's really that much better. Pros: - Bigger better screen - HDMI support - Looks nice - More features Cons: - I think the 5 is a bigger unit, less portability - I have...

Re: Track Ratings - Synching problem

Hi Waysid,

Sorry for the late reply on this - just wanted to say finally got MM up and running and the ratings synch perfectly with 605.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Gold and Silver Extended Warranty

I received a reply from the clowns at Archos "[email protected].com" : "Dear sir, Our extended warranty is included in a box, not a piece of paper. It is sent by TNT, we cannot send it by postal way. Best regards" They have obviously lost the plot (and a sale) if they think it's ...

Re: Gold and Silver Extended Warranty

Cheers Roy, I phoned Tech Support and he laughed when I told him. He gave me an email address to contact - the e-commerce team, waiting for them to reply.

Gold and Silver Extended Warranty

Hi There, Has anybody purchased the extended warranty from Archos? After having the PCB replaced by Archos (under warranty) I thought it would be a good idea to extend the warranty for another 2 years for approx £68 on the Archos web-site. As I went through the check-out there were only 2 options f...

Re: Scratched unit - any way to get it fixed? :-(

It's on the bezel, front left corner. It looks like you can see the metal underneath and if I run my finger over it, I can feel it.

Scratched unit - any way to get it fixed? :-(

Hi There, I usually take great care of my beloved Archos, always keeping it in the case when not using it. The other day I took it out of the case (which was in my work bag) and found to my horror a series of small scratch marks on the silver casing. I can only guess it slipped out of the sleeve and...

Re: Track Ratings - Synching problem

Thanks Waysid, any ideas what settings (within WMP 11) I should choose in the "Set-up Synch" options screen? I have tried it with the following playlist selected to synch - "All Music". Is it easy to set up the device to synch with Media Monkey? I have it installed but not setup ...

Track Ratings - Synching problem

Hi There, FEATURE: I have a question I hope someone can help me with. On the Archos, whilst listening to music tracks, if you select Menu>Set Rating you can rate tracks from "None" through to 1 to 5. Now I find this feature very useful and it's great for listening to your favourite tracks...

I've had problems with artwork not appearing on albums I've previously synch'ed and then added the art. If this is the case you can fix it by: 1. Add the art to all the files you want to add art to. 2. Delete the album from WMP (Delete from Library NOT from PC hard drive) 3. Synch your Archos (to r...

Resets and Playlist issues

Hi Folks, I have an 80GB 605, running 1.8.0.7 which generally I've very happy with, however there are a couple of niggly things I've noticed. All my playlists created on the unit appears in an "Unknown" folder within Playlists. The unit appears to reset quite frequently when using playlis...

Hi Rob,

I suggest you submit a technical support ticket on Archos.com, the more people that report it, the more chance they will fix it.

It appears you are correct. I find it incredible that Archos claim to support synching with WMP and the basic function of synching playlists is not supported. I guess I'll just have to wait for the firmware upgrade. In the meantime I've logged a technical support ticket at Archos.com, will update t...

Hi Waysid, Playlists in WMP are in WPL format. Playlists created in 605 are in M3U format. All my tracks are MP3, not sure what non-drm tracks are or how to check if I have any. I tried copying all the (functioning) playlists from the 404 over to the 605 and see the same result - playlists have 0 en...

DRM Playlist problem?

Hi there, I have a 80GB 605 which I'm very pleased with, I previously had a 404. I've synched my music library to the 605 with no problems, and recently I've changed computers and moved My Music folder to the new machine, synching still works with no problems, but I've now noticed that all my playl...
