Freezes and resets usually from web browsing. That's #1 cause for me. Next is some video files I've downloaded from the net. Last, but not least, the AAC plugin chokes on certain songs.

It depends on the file. Some files play fine and some just hang up the player. Every file plays fine on my iPhone.

Make sure you're not connected to the PC via USB. The dock only allows one USB connection at a time. Either to the PC or the the stick, but not both at once.

First, some background. I bought the Archos 605 30GB Decemberish of last year first and then I just recently got an iPhone a few weeks ago. I spent $299 (player)+$30 (web plugin)+$20 (podcast plugin)+$20(cinema plugin)+$20(charge dock)= ~$390 for the Archos. The iPhone retails for $399 and comes wi...

Archos Mobile Internet Device Concept

I was watching some CES 2008 videos on my Archos 605 and I noticed Intel's brand new Mobile Internet Devices that are coming out in 2nd half of 2008 are just an Archos 605 but with a keyboard! I mean look at the similarities. Archos MID OS Linux Linux Screen 4-7" 5-6" WiFi Yes Yes Touch Ye...

This worries me! As I said, the Intel flash chip has a security feature: the firmware can lock sectors of the flash until next cold-boot. It is impossible to write-access the sectors once the door has been slammed shut because this is a hardware protection mechanism. The above is a clear indication...

90% of people who have bought an IPOD never thought of it in terms of "I want cool app X" when purchasing. Instead they thought "I want the gadget from that cool commercial that plays digital music files for me; bonus if it can also play movies too, although I don't even know how tha...

First of all, I KNOW what a SDK is and what it represents. Try explaining it to someone who knows very little about computers in general. I don't have to. All they're gonna look at is: does the Archos have cool app. X that the iPod Touch has? No? They'll buy the device that can run cool app. X. No ...

SDK == Third Party apps. So even if Joe User doesn't know what an SDK is, indirectly he'll want it available if he wants third party apps. The third party apps. are what appeal to the mass market, not the SDK. And an SDK doesn't necessarily mean small user gain. Look at the Halo effect. People might...

Not to be argumentative, but that's kinda backwards thinking. Archos needs an SDK/third party apps. to attract new customers. Waiting for more customers in order to release an SDK is suicide. They can protect their plugin revenue by forcing everyone that downloads the SDK to sign a non-compete contr...

Re: The Real Story on 605's Audio Quality ?

Thanks for the tip. SPDIF setting helps a lot. Hi Everyone, I am getting an 80 GB 605 WiFi for Xmas, ( which I replaced an 80 GB iPod Classic with, due to reports of the iPod having bad sound quality ). Unfortunately, I've also been reading quite a bit on 605 reviews that the sonic quality of the 60...

That's a valid argument since I'm using stock Archos ear buds. But could it be you need nice and expensive ear buds to compensate for poor Archos sound quality? Cause the stock ear buds sound fine on my Axim X5 and the Creative Zen W. Not sure if the ones who say the 605 has bad sound quality just h...
