Re: battery dock doesn't connect well

Do you have the battery dock powered from the DC cord? And are you doing anything to cool the Archos? I only loaded a lot of stuff once, after that it has been incremental. However the back of the unit seemed to be getting really warm, so I propped it up and aimed a fan at it for the rest of the tra...

Re: something wrong with wifi

I have my router set to mixed mode (G+N) and the Archos doesn't care. I never got WPA working with 2 different D-link routers and the 5. One was at a friends house, so I simply can't connect there. The other was mine; switching to WPA2 allowed it to work most of the time, but I had other problems wi...

Re: CURRENT ARCHOS 5 OWNERS READ THIS...

My 5 still works fine for what I need it for, so I won't consider replacing it until it breaks. At that point I would give preference to an open device over another closed Archos, but if the Archos were still the only device that met my needs (as the 5 was) then I would get another.

Re: something wrong with wifi

Are you using any form of encryption? The 5 is known to have issues with WPA encryption on some D-Link routers.

Re: Archos 5 and Archos 7 FIRMWARE v 1.6.53

Depends when it left the Archos factory and how long it sat somewhere. Also, they probably do not update the initial image to the latest firmware as soon as it comes out, with possible exceptions such as the "Cannot downgrade from here" firmwares. As they probably figure most users will want to use ...

Re: What type of HDD is used in the 9 and is it upgradable?

Out of 172 laptops listed on Newegg right now, 151 list 802.11n. Would seem to be relatively common.

Re: Dotted matrix on 5's screen

The screen in my carputer has them, but yes it has to be direct sunlight to see them. The archos ones seem a little more noticeable.

Re: usb on the go idea

I would imagine those questions depend on the details of the host. One thing to remember is that if you start adding too much stuff your power requirements might call for some pretty large additional batteries.

Re: tried memory card yet?

No idea on the answer to your question, but most people want the card memory treated the same as internal memory, look at all the complaints about the Creative players which keep the two apart. So if Archos was listening to that type of feedback they are probably joined.

Re: SDHC

You can probably do it, unless your camcorder does something extra with the encoding that the Archos can't understand. Maybe post a sample clip somewhere for someone with the appropriate plugins to try?

Re: usb on the go idea

Look around the internet and see if anyone has any instructions for making a USB host box. probably is not any cheaper than just buying the mini-dock though.

Re: Installing torrent client.

Any movie worth watching more than recovers production costs in the theater run, then home video sales are just gravy. Given that most people don't have a home theater to rival the experience at a real theater, those profits are unlikely to go away. So I would imagine piracy is a bigger deal for the...

If I understand, he is going to cut up a USB cable to grab the +5 and GND from that, and plug that cable into his laptop to supply power. The adapter will only pass the data lines from the Archos. I don't think it will work, I think the Archos can only act as a client on that connection. Go ahead an...

Re: Clean music files & start over

Dunno if there is a way to clear only the music library, I had to do a clear of the temporary settings to get it to properly recognize updated tags on songs.
