if you have the android market, get mx player (if it's compatible) I can play files on my samsung wifi that an archos can't without the media pack and can't with it on some occasions

Re: Archos Slipping

one obvious question. If you have a device that works with huge storage, why buy something else? if it does what you want, does how old it is matter? I've only had a flat screen tv since november! My samsung galaxy s wifi 5.0 only runs android 2.2, so what? it takes 64GB micro cards, it plays SD vid...

Re: Samsung galaxy player S wifi 5.0

Final update Ok, I got my galaxy S Wifi 5.0 5 inch tablet/media player 8GB for £135. I got it to replace my sony 7inch portable DVD player that has a 6 hour battery using a USB key, but it weighed over a kilo. I diddn't want a phone, as too expensive (for the screen size, galaxy note is a similar si...

Re: Archos Slipping

The prob is Archos already makes so many different products, they can't afford to make even more and so Archos has to choose to limit skews, limit the different capacities, and perhaps the work needed to add 1TB HDD version of Gen10 wasn't worth it for Archos, as adding 1TB in there adds thickness ...

Re: When is an SD card not an SD card?

My tablet does the same, I simply move the images via my pc from the internal memory to the external SD card. I do the same for downloaded videos. This keeps the internal memory clear for when I need it.

It's not really a big deal for me, as I back up all my data on a regular basis.

Re: Nexus7

For me, the decision for Nexus 7 was an easy one... No micro-SD, no sale. If you don't mind the lack of space, then the Nexus 7 is a good buy. I'm not willing to always need a connection to access my data. I prefer the micro-SD, full-size USB, and micro-USB of my G9 101. same here. I won't buy an a...

Re: Nexus7

It seems funny that charbax always quotes that the other devices are newer that archos', surely that implies archos are behind everyone else? but that can't be so, because archos are the best?! Archos has more bugs than a replicator ship from stargate..how can you defend that. Archos are like the go...

Re: Asus Memo 370T -> Nexus Tablet

I will be passing on this tablet. No SD slot is a deal-breaker for me. I need expansion, and I need it local... not on a cloud that requires me to be online at all times with my tablet. Especially when my son is watching HD movies. I don't have time for buffering or any of that nonsense. Like I sai...

Re: "Sorry, this video cannot be played" Archos 101 YouTube

try downloading tubemate, it will play youtube videos and also alow you to download/save them and watch them later. It's not in the market, just google tubemate. If I can do it, it's got to be easy!
