cinema plugin

I have just purchased the cinema plugin for my 70 250gb. In the email Archos say to drag the plugin into "internal storage" :cry: . This section doesn't appear when I connect to PC. I found a hint to just connect to my email through the Archos and it would automatically download to the device withou...

Re: keyboard

Thanks for replies. Sorry for delay in answering, but I have been on holiday. I can force the keyboard to appear now by holding down the icon that is below the home button, but through Virgin media I don't get a cursor, and no letters come up on screen. Funny thing is, that I have no problem when us...

Re: Appslib icon missing

To pstafford:Did you ever get this sorted? I fully understand what you are trying to get across, as I have the same problem. To the previous reply, no I haven't uninstalled the appslib accidently. I had to do a full system restore on my 70, after first backing up my personal content. When I restarte...

Adobe (ebooks)

I am still having trouble, with this replacement Archos 70 250gb getting my UK library ebooks to work. I have the OI file manager installed. I drag the link to the book into my ebook folder. Open up OI, and the URLLink.acsm appears OK. When I then click on it Adobe DRM appears and tells me that I am...

Adobe ebook reading

Sadly my 70 died after only 30 days. I had it replaced ok, but I seem to have a problem importing my U.K. library ebooks to this one. The problem lies with Adobe. I have the IO File Manager app installed, which worked fine on the old 70. When I click on the URL link, it says that as I am trying to d...

Re: how to import Ebooks into Aldiko reader?

Thought this item, from Aldiko might be of some help, if you want to get UK library ebooks into your Archos 70 IT. It has worked fine for me. Archos 70 home tablet still has the older version of Aldiko app, which supports DRM-free EPUB books only. Ebooks from local libraries are DRM protected. In or...

Re: how to import Ebooks into Aldiko reader?

I have followed the steps set out, but I am still having trouble. Here in the UK, I can download ebooks from the library for 3 weeks, free of charge. These I can read OK on PC, but they will not open after transferring to the 70. I have OI file manager installed, but I can't seem to get to the impor...

ebooks

I am very new to the 70. I have tried to download an ebook while connected to my home wifi, but the message comes up that it cannot download book, and make sure that my SD card is present, and that the device is not in USB storage mode. I have the 250gb version with no SD card slot. Also, how do I e...

Re: Ebook

I have tried again and can now find the file in the downloads, but all that comes up is the message that the file type is not recognised. I have tried setting the Archos system to the various options, but with no luck. This is one of those situations where I want something to work, but I can't reall...

Re: Ebook

Thanks for reply I am about to go to work so will try your suggestions tomorrow. The ebooks from the library last for 3 weeks and are then deleted automatically apparently, so there is no problem with "overdue" items. Not sure how they sort out the copyright aspect though. cheers, Tommo.

Ebook

I have been trying something out, as my local library now allows free ebook downloading. I successfully downloaded one and dragged it into my Archos. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was able to read the book through the Archos while it was connected to my PC, but I just can't find it when ...

Re: AV 500 hard drive

Thanks for reply. I followed the link you sent, but as I am not quite qualified as a nuclear scientist (lol) I think I will now give up and sell it on ebay as faulty, and would make an ideal doorstop.

AV 500 hard drive

I now believe that the hard drive is now beyond recovery. Is it possible to buy a new 100gb hard drive? Where from, and how easy is it to fit?
