Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

I reeeeeeeally don't feel like wiping and resetting as its a pain to have to set everything up again, my device has the latest firmware and is rooted with expanded app storage. Dunno if Archos would RMA my rooted device, but thats t...

Re: Happy Owner

No, you are wrong. 90% of the posts with problems started here are from people with less than 10 Posts, which states exactly what racky said. We had this discussion on a Milestone forum, where the "majority" stated that they have a problem with xyz. BUT in reality the count of people that really ha...

Re: Owner Reviews - A101

After having the Archos 101 for 9 months and an Acer Iconia A500 for 5 1/2 weeks I can honestly say I like the Acer much better. It is heavier but feels more solid. I also like the screen on the Iconia better. While the Archos 101 may be a 10.1 it is only about 1/8 an inch longer but about 1/2 inch ...

Re: New Firmware is a problem don't install it

Moderator, can you please delete old threads like this one. They are useless since we are no longer on that old update. Threads like this just take up space.

If you go to Archos web site and go to the bottom you can change your country on the left by the flag. But you need to be registered to get the phone # you need. However maybe one of these #s will help if you call them. Investor Relations Investor Relations Information Phone: +33 1 69 33 16 90 Busin...

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

Sent my 101 in last Monday and the replacement came today. 8 days was a fast turn around. But after buying and using the Acer Iconia A500 for the past 3 weeks the Archos felt junky. The USB is working and worked after a firmware update. But I put a micro SD in that i had backed up my apps on and had...

Re: Support Contact

Archos support does not reply to email.
I sent them email about 20 times with no reply.
I thus contacted sales and they replied.
The best way is to call them.

Re: New Build?

I just sent mine in last week.
I hope I get a new one.
I checked the tracking and they received it on Thursday but it still does not show up in their system.
It would be nice if it was a gen 9 they sent you.

Re: What should a 14 year old buy

What should a 14 year buy? A bicycle. When I was 14 I was climbing trees and having fun outside. not a couch potato. Actually someone said to me a few days ago that they wanted their daughter to get a tablet for college but she wanted a netbook. I think the netbook would be better because of the har...

Re: Happy Owner

It's nice to hear of other happy owners. Like you, I have had very few problems with my 101. We're part of a minority, though. :? I have mine for 6 months or so and no major concerns... we may be in the minority on this forum but that's because most people here are looking for help/answers with pro...

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

freddy99 I have only seen one post where someone claimed the port, which died, worked after a firmware reinstall. My USB failed a few months after I bought the 101, or it failed sometime around Feb. After purchasing an Acer Iconia A500 I have now sent in my 101 via RMA I'm not sure if I will keep it...

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

I have a 101 and the USB host port has been no issue, however, I have been reading the threads here and on XDA and it occurred to me that no one seems to have tried to find out if the data lines still function on a "dead" USB host port although several report the data lines are unaffected. A USB po...

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

My USB port stopped working about a month after I recieved the unit. I held off returning it as I was travelling and wanted to have the table. The SD card port still works so I have los of extra storage. I have my RMA in place and will send back this week. What bugs me the most about this is it is ...

Re: Owner Reviews - A101

I have had my 101 since early Dec. 2010. I just sent it in RMA for the failed USB port. I hope they have finally resolved the USB issue. Anyway, on July 30th I took advantage of the $100. off a tablet at Staples and purchased the Acer Iconia Tab A500. It is heavier than the Archos but has a better s...

Re: help cant find downloaded books

Your post says you can't find the downloaded books which should be in the download folder. It would help if you told us what format the books are. For .epub files I use FBReader. I did not think the Archos had a book reader so what program did you think was for books? epub is the most popular book f...

Re: Bogus "Your internal storage is full"

This has been solved. The clue came when I got the message there was a firmware update available. When I went to download it, I got the message that the tablet had to be disconnected from the PC before it could get the upgrade. I hadn't been connected to a PC for a long time. Thinking back on this,...

No worries everyone - Both the 16GB and 250GB on both the 80 and 101 will run dual-core up to 1.5 GHz. No worries? With the problem of the gen 8, such as USB failure and lack of a resolution to the problem, the lack of Archos admitting the problem and the lack of you, Craig, addressing our question...
