Re: .icon file?

It does when its in media mode, It does not in mass storage mode.
Cant find a way to extract the icon from the media mode, so i'm still looking.

You use a simple autorun.inf file to make it appear when the drive connects, but it requires a .ico file

Re: Formatted by mistake - missing files

Hi, second post, first question... I got my 5IT (32GB flash version) two days ago and was working around with it quite heavily. Anyhow, out of curiosity I started the system recovery (switching on the device and pushing volume up). That's when trouble began as I accidentally hit "Format Disk" witho...

Archos5IT - Questions

My Archos 5, 250gb broke recently, and Amazon offered me a refund instead of a replacement so I wondered if it was worth looking into getting an A5IT instead. But i was not sure about some of the details around the device. The price of the A5IT 500gb, is about what I paid for my Archos 5, so price i...

You should add the Archos category to any Misc pages you create just so things link to it. Alternatively, go to this page, it lists all pages in the wiki: http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?title=Special:AllPages And all categories: http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?title=Special:AllPages/Categ...

Re: Archos 5 - BBC Iplayer - Should it work

I've downloaded the portable version. It's .wmv file and when I try to play it, I get a 'no license found for this file'. Do I need to buy a license? I went to the Archos site and I couldn't see a plug in for .wmv files. You cant just copy over protected DRM files, you need to put the device in med...

Re: Archos 5 - BBC Iplayer - Should it work

No chance of a fix, Archos have dropped support for that device, any future updates will ONLY to block hacking attempts.
There is also a flash issue, you can read about that by searching.

Hi

It's never worked streaming directly from the website, only by downloading and syncing across.
I myself was irritated as when I bought the archos 5, i was assured that it would be iplayer streaming compatible, but it never has been

Re: http://wiki.archosfans.com - infos, Q&As, FAQs, tutorials..

I added formatting to the archos 5, and 5a pages, makes them look much cleaner. Better to have all the info on one page rather than just a load of links.

I'd still like the uploading feature unlocked please.

Re: One stuck pixel - am I being too picky?

Archos say up to 3 is acceptable, however when I got one I did not find it acceptable, so I got it replaced. If you dont want to get it replaced, try running a stuck pixel fixer: http://www.forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=18707 Direct link to video download: http://www.sendspace.com/file/4...

Re: what files should be listed under the System folder?

Hi there

all the files that come on the archos when you recieve it can be downloaded from their support site here:
ftp://support.archos.com/ARCHOS%205%20-%207/

Anything else is unnecessary, as long as the device is still working.
If you are really worried, do a forced restore of the device.

Re: Archos 5, 250gb case that will fit into the dock.

Why all the caps? makes it look like your shouting..

and you can plug earphones in if you plug it in without the dvr adaptor as i have been doing recently. or you could use a converter with the two audio outs on the back
