Re: Success Upgrading Archos 504 40gb to 160gb from Woot

The 604 has a 1.8" hard drive, totally different than your stand 2.5" laptop PATA hard drives. And anything above firmware 1.5.56 locks your Archos to your specific hard drive, thus making it impossible to swap hard drives. I'd say you're stuck with whatever hard drive you currently have i...

Re: Success Upgrading Archos 504 40gb to 160gb from Woot

What's up fellow Archos fans? Today, I FINALLY upgraded an Archos 504 40gb that I got off of eBay to a WHOPPING 250gb Hard drive! As you can probably tell, I'm very excited. The process was surprisingly easy after following some of the directions that was given here on this very thread. To be honest...

Re: Multiple Audio Tracks

I'm assuming you have either an Archos 504 or 604. Anyways in both cases, if you have an AVI file or whatever that has two audio tracks, all you have to do is press the menu button while playing the avi file and from there, select the sound category and there should be an option to select which audi...

Re: Archos 504 HDD swapping

Is there a limit to hard drive capacity for the Archos 504? I keep seeing 250gb Archos 504s for sale, is it possible to upgrade to a 320gb Archos 504 or dare I say it, a 500gb Archos 504?

Re: subtitles "sticking"

that's strange man. Are you sure the .smi file is named the same name as your video file? Like if you're watching the movie Wanted with hebrew subtitles, the movie file and the sub file should match like Wanted.avi and Wanted.smi. Make sure both file names match up. If that doesn't work then I don't...

Re: ReConnecting Hard Drive Ribbon - 604 WiFi

I recently encountered a problem like this just yesterday with my girlfriend's Archos 604. She has an Archos 604 not the 604 WIFI but I'm pretty sure they're both the same thing just minus the WIFI. Anyways, the problem with her 604 was that every time she tried to boot it, it would just stay on the...

I had the same problem as all of you guys on here, here's how I fixed it. There's nothing wrong with the subtitle file.srt itself, the thing is, Archos 504 sucks at displaying .srt subtitle files. Here's what I did. Download Subtitle Workshop online. Just google it and install. This program can conv...

Archos 504 Battery lock is broken, how do I fix it?

It's becoming quite a pain now as whenever I listen to my Archos now, my battery can slide off just enough to shut down my Archos while I'm listening to it. Does anybody here know a quick fix on how to fix it? Thanx in advance.

When I booted it up, it asked to repair, format, or do nothing. I selected format. It then said to connect to t...

I did the exact same thing with my video list and now when I press the video button, it says that the video list is empty. Thing is, it's not empty, it just doesn't see the video files right away, they're all in folders now. So when you enter the video menu and it says empty, you have to press the l...

So I finally read everything in this thread and I realized that I am now caught between a rock and a hard place. So now my firmware is 1.5.04 (downgraded from a 1,6,23 firmware) and from what I'm reading, I can't swap my Archos 504 80gb hard drive unless I got a firmware that's 1.4.03 and lower. How...

ok I managed to downgrade my firmware from 1.6.23 to a 1.5.04 thanks to Roja, what now? I'm going to try to downgrade even further, I just hope it works. As for hard drives, will any internal hard drive by any brand do? I'm eyeing a maxtor 200gb internal Hard Drive that I can get for 50 bucks. Someb...

$210 is a decent price for 40gb MP3 player. I got lucky finding a great deal on Craigslist for an 80gb Archos 504. 80gb Archos for $200 bucks. I was like yo DEAL! lol 210 is a good price for a 40gb mp3 player. I'd take that if I were you.

My Archos 504 keeps converting MP3 files to WMA files

It's not really a problem for me but transfering music to my Archos now takes a lot longer because it converts every single mp3 file to a WMA file. Is there a way that I can have it you know, NOT do that and just transfer MP3 files normally. It never did this before but lately, it's been doing that ...
