Re: Battery Dock (Search no help)

Yeah, I just got the battery dock, and, it's really nice - especially if you want to play films through hotel TV's, that have video input on the front (and many do now).

I just wish it was a micro USB charger input, so I wouldn't have to carry yet another power adaptor around.

Re: ARCLibrary always runs at power up .. want to disable!

I believe that's in Settings -Data synchronization. If that doesn't do the trick check in Settings Multimedia Libraries. There are options for automatically updating the media libraries there. Yeah, and they are all unchecked, yet it still happens. Isn't there a way to get into the startup app fold...

Yeah, well, I have almost 400gb of 60,000 songs (of which, due to ARC Lib limitations, only picks up 32.765 songs), so the Library takes forever to scan ....

Please, anyone can help on this?

ARCLibrary always runs at power up .. want to disable!

Is there any way to disable that? It takes up too much time (5-8 minutes) and battery power. Only has happened since the Donut upgrade ...

in the settings, the option to automatically run Arc Library is not checked, either. ...

Archos 5 Android appreciation thread

Many people look at this forum, as a decision maker to buy the A5A or not. Yes, it has its faults, but, I for one, have been waiting 30 years for a device like this. It's truly the first device of its kind,that has its kind of capaciiy. And its faults will diminish with time. When I was a teenager, ...

Re: Realistic expectations ...

32,768 songs is just the ArcLibrary limit for now isn't it (to browse by title/artist/album/genre based on ID3 tags)? You can still browse through all your songs by folders can't you.. Yep, that's what I do - I have my artists and albums all properly sorted anyway, so, it's fine for now. As my thre...

OK, so, I've had my A5A 500gb for almost a month now. I am a guy who likes to push all of his toys to the technological limit. And we all hope for the holy grail of electronic toys - the device that does it ALL - But, sometimes, the work involved doesn't pay. I know many people here on the forums ar...

Re: Lamest Customer Service ever ....

61,000 songs = about 6000 albums/CD. Somehow, I feel you have a subscription service and ripped the DRM off to have a collection that large. Consider it karma for not paying for those tunes. ;-) Or maybe I have 10,000 CD's, and an assistant that's been helping me rip them over a couple of years, an...

Have an A5A 500GB. Called CS today... "Hello, may I help you?" "Yes, I have about 61,000 songs in my library. The Archos currently cannot handle a library scan any larger than 32,768 songs. I also know this is a problem from reading in the forums. Does Archos plan to fix/update this feature, to acco...

Maximum mp3 files in ARCLibrary scan?

I was reading a thread on the Archos 5 forum, that someone couldn't get more than around 32,600-32,745 mp3 files recognized on their Archos 5. I just bought an Archos 5 Android 500gb, and, I also cannot scan more than 32,745 files, even though I have over 61,000 loaded on the device. This sucks, as,...

What am I missing???? I successfully connected my A5A to my Macs, but, when I want to connect it to my Windows machine (via Parallels - for a certain reason of copying properties that the Mac can't do), upon recognition of the A5A, when wanting to install a driver, I get the message it is looking fo...

Re: "Unable to Stop Wifi" - Am I the only one?

Thanks for the feedback - I will try the BT thing, and, I've already downloaded the older OS, so, I will try to downgrade, and, see what happens. If the OS upgrade went wrong, I'd be surprised - there were no glitches, it went smooth. I know that in rality, we have the units early, and, the proper s...

And, when I try to shut off WiFi (maybe to try to turn it back on after, to freshly scan), i t starts by saying "shutting...
