Re: Market problem!

I was never able to do the gmail sign up or initial setup via the tethering, always had to do that via wifi.

Re: google search by voice

Custom ROMs have all sorts of things you shouldn't expect to find on stock ROMs. Michael I get that, I'm just pointing out that it's not a limitation of the 1.6 OS, if it were a limitation of the OS itself third parties wouldn't be able to impliment it either. IMO it's more like a limit on imaginat...

Re: Digital Camera Support

I believe you would need one of the docks, as the usb connector on the archos is not a usb host. It would be like trying to plug a camera directly into a hard drive.

I'm not sure how exactly it works. But I've got a 1.6 rom on my mt3g phone with voice search. Using the dwang rom, and I know the cyanogen mod roms have it. Plus my friends 1.6 rom on his motorola cliq has voice search and he's using the tmobile, non-custom rom. I'm guessing they could some how do i...

Re: Good multimedia player( avi,mkv,flv)

Yes, which is why I made the distinction. Explaining something will play additional codecs and then mentioning container types (that the AMC already plays) as examples of codecs is not the answer I was hoping for. Michael I'm kind of surprised by your answers here Michael, your slippin. Normall you...

Re: Good multimedia player( avi,mkv,flv)

.AVI, .MKV and .FLV are video containers, not codecs. And the A5A supports all 3 of those container types natively without any additional purchase. Michael .avi files can use a wide variety of codecs... many of the movies I have would not work until purchased the codec pack from archos. I wish I wo...

So you don't have to pay archos for the additional codecs?

Re: Android 2.2 running on the T-Mobile G1

I tried out that cyanogen 2.2 release on my mt3g and everything seemed to work, but after having it running for more than an hour or so it just got so incredibly slow for me. Like when I'd be in an app and hit the home screen, it would take like a whole minute before replacing my icons or letting me...

Re: Internet though Laptop Windows running XP Bluetooth ?

I tether mine via bluetooth, but not through a computer. Never once had an issue with stability. Before the tethering worked for my phone, I was desperate to tether through my work pc with bluetooth. Can't pop up a new wifi in the office so it would be nice to to be able to do that via my work pc an...

Can't says that it's been disconnected or is no longer available. :(

If I format the drive, will it erase everything, or just like the storage section of the drive?

Thanks for the assistance people.

Yep device is registered... works on any other files except these two folders in the video folder that I tried copying some vob files into. I can delete any other files just fine, even inside the video directory.

Deleting Files?

I tried copying over the vob files from a dvd, supposedly it can support those instead of ripping to an avi or mpeg, etc... Anyway, it would never copy over all the way without failing so it was just easier to convert to one avi and use that file. But anyway, when I use astro I can delete the files ...
