Re: Internal storage unavailable + 2.4.83 preparing internal

I would say there is a good chance the hard drive inside your device is bad and the utility that is checking it for errors is having a hard time reading it. Is it still under warranty? Hi Mike, thanks for your reply.... Yes, it was bought at Christmas so should still be under warranty I would have ...

You may have the same problem as this person!

So I guess it could be a connection problem!

Re: SD dead out the box?

Hi Mike, Yes you could be right. Under storage, the space just says 'unavailable'. So it's not finding the hard drive. Unfortunately I bought from a company through eBay, and they are insisting on using the Archos warranty fix. So I'll have paid for a new item, but end up with a reconditioned one. ...

Re: busted screen - anyone know a how to get files back off

The screen is toast - can see anything on it so I cant hit the button (tried pressing to get a response where I think the button is but no joy) to enable USB mode to drag off the files via the pc. Does anyone know a way of forcing USB mode without touching the screen in the usual way? thanks If you...

Re: SD dead out the box?

It actually sounds like the hard drive in the device is dead and the device just does not recognize it. I would think it unlikely that the drive became disconnected. Under the "Storage" settings, does it show how much system storage is available? I remember a while back somebody posting photos of a ...

Re: Firmware 2.4.82 released - report bugs here

Upgraded mine a few days ago, and now the battery drains about 30% overnight if I turn it off. I have no "Shallow sleep" option like some people are talking about on this thread. Can I go back to an older firmware??

Re: Archos 70 250GB Firmware Question

Great! Just updated the firmware to the latest. the skipping is still there, and now my devices battery will drain about 30% overnight when it is OFF!! Apparently I cannot downgrade the firmware unless I hack the tablet, which will probably make it more unstable. I think I have bought my last Archos...

Re: Archos 70 250GB Firmware Question

Thank you! I have done a bit of research on this issue with the Archos skipping the last few days. I have tried GMMP, Winamp, PlayerPro, Poweramp, and a few more I cannot think of. All of them skipped when equalization was turned on. I even tried some of the other advanced settings in these players,...

Re: Archos 70 250GB Firmware Question

OK...looks like I get no help on this one. I am surprised nobody knows the answer to at least the firmware downgrading. As it turns out, after installing various Android audio apps on various devices I own, the Archos is the only one with the skipping issue. I doubt if any firmware upgrade will fix ...

Archos 70 250GB Firmware Question

I have an Archos 70 250GB tablet and I have never updated the firmware. My experience with later Archos devices are that they are a bit buggy, and sometimes the upgrade makes them worse. The only problem I am having is audio skipping on the device. Right now it is on firmware 2.36 1. If I upgrade th...

Re: Archos 70 parasitic battery drain.....while device is of

One of my co-workers may have hit the nail on the head on this! He suggested since the unit powers on when you plug in the USB cable to the computer, that it is polling the USB port, therefore using power when it is off. This sounds like a great theory to me!!

Re: White screen of death - is it in the hardware?

Isn't it just wifi, not flash? Happens when there are certain wifi sites around that try to bring up a browser to authenticate? To test, sleep with wifi off, then see if white screen goes away. There are no wifi sites like that around me. I am using this at home and the only other wifi networks thi...

Re: Archos 70 parasitic battery drain.....while device is of

Odd thing..this morn at 5:30 I put my A70 in deep sleep mode. Got home at 5:30, and the battery is 99%! Only a 1% drain in 12 hours. Battery drains less when the device is still technically on!! :shock:

Re: White screen of death - is it in the hardware?

I am getting this all of a sudden, but it is random. I thought it was caused by a recent software update so I uninstalled Flash, which had just installed an update. After a restart, the problem did not happen. I reinstalled Flash, and it was still OK. The next day it was back to its old tricks! My d...

I thought about that, but updating firmware on current Archos devices is a crapshoot! I may end up with worse problems then I have now, which are fairly minor, and just annoying!

Re: Archos 70 parasitic battery drain.....while device is of

I've experienced the same issue the first times I used my A70IT...Try to not shut down the tablet, but only light suspend it (one short press on power button). If it is all ok you should experience a lower battery drain than when is off. The reason, I think, is that the power on/off procedures drai...

Re: Archos 70 parasitic battery drain.....while device is of

@mikekoz: How did you turn it off? If you only pushed the button to let it sleep, the chance is that Arkiv is right. If you for ex have autosync on, or some mail app etc they won't let your tab sleep and therefore it will run at minimum speed the whole time. Thanks for the reply, but I shut it down...
