Re: wont connect to pc via usb

Your request is vague, please reply with the platform and operating system you are using.

Failing that, try resetting your Archos 3 Vision. All aberrant behaviour on my Archos 3 Vision has been resolved by using this method.

Re: wont come on

Sometimes my Archos 3 Vision doesn't come on, and it's because of the power switch's design. The sliding switch engages a small button located under it when slid to the left, and clicks into a lock when slid to the right. The issue is that, unless you are applying slight pressure "into" the device w...

This question has been answered in detail in another thread.

Also, MediaCoder seems to be the best free solution for converting videos for Archos' devices.

Currently, after releasing N new firmware versions, the product works in a better way but with a few bugs pending for solving. Congratulations!!1!! You've made 11 posts and...

Re: Title start isn't in correct time

Protected music files and music imported by iTunes can cause errors and odd behaviour, but I've never heard of an Archos 18 Vision.

Re: A3cam usage tips

3) Beware of unplugging USB without ejecting completely. I got most freshly loaded data corrupted by ejecting then unplugging on an old mac. Then I found the eject takes at least a minute to actually complete on that laptop - visable by checking another finder screen. Thanks for the tips, this one ...

Re: jumpy video playing

I just wanted to let you know that, after looking around for good converter software I am having great luck using MediaCoder, a freeware transcoder. I have had no trouble with sync on my Archos 3 Vision once I've converted the clips using it. 25 fps is the magic number for video, but I use the XviD ...

Re: Vision 3 Broken screen.

The Archos 3 Vision's touchscreen should be calibrated using the settings feature as soon as you turn it on. This will customise it to your preference (within its limits). If your screen broke when you "pressed it as you normally would", you pressed it too hard . Sounds like a clear-cut case of user...

MelodyCan doesn't work for Archos 2 Vision uesrs. Don't waste your time, folks. You need a converter with more control.

My Archos 3 Vision Review

I decided to upgrade from my Archos 2 Vision, and unboxed my newly purchased Archos 3 Vision this weekend. My first impressions: the screen is flawless and has no stuck pixels, and the backlight is very bright, you only need brightness setting "one" to view pics and video in most conditions. I loade...

Re: How Do I know When the 3cam Vision is finished Charging?

When the Archos 3 Vision is charging on my XP machine, the battery icon will count off the bars to indicate that it's charging. If the player is mostly discharged, it blinks one bar on the battery icon, and then counts out the four bars as usual in a pattern (bar "1" blinks once, then bars "1" throu...

Re: AVI Converter Just Does NOTHING...

You can't just use any converter software, or you'll get an error. You need a converter that has .avi output and allows you to control most of the settings, like older versions of HandBrake. VideoHelp.com has a number of converters for you to try. The app that comes with the 2 Vision makes the avi f...

Re: AVI Converter Just Does NOTHING...

That's too bad. What OS are you using? It works okay in XP.

It's probably time to contact Archos tech support.

Re: Does the Archos 2 Vision play movie files, ie: avi, mpeg

Despite its quirks, limitations, and outright flaws, the Archos 2 Vision (or Vision 2, call it what you like) is still the best $50 +shipping I've ever spent on a tech item. I've owned mine for over 5 weeks, it has about 8 hours of battery life per charge, under display-heavy use (pics, videos, flac...

Re: AVI Converter Just Does NOTHING...

Sometimes the converter will not update the status until it is finished with compression. I hope they fix this regrettable bug in the next version. All I can say is that you should be patient - a 22 minute, 720x1280, mp4 file will take over half an hour to convert on a 2.4GHz PC with 1GB of RAM.

Customisable menu icons and splash screen? (You did say "Entertainment YOUR Way") Why does it take only one ...

Re: Trouble converting video to .avi format.

Just a quick correction: What I've found out so far is that the converter software makes the avi file: 18 fps, rotated 90' cw, bitrate @600kbps, 12 bit sample size, FFDS compression, with an audio bit rate of 64kpbs. Should read: Conversion makes the avi file: 18 fps, mirror-flipped, rotated 90' ccw...

Archos Vision 2 - freezing and file corruption issues

An important tip for Archos 2 Vision owners running XP (maybe other OS's, I dunno) - make sure the device has completely finished updating its library and anything else before physically disconnecting it from your PC.. After I finished charging the 2 Vision, I ejected it as usual, but physically dis...
