Re: HELP! Unable to connect to the internet using WiFi

I have the same problem as the OP. I have been using my 101 for a year. It has worked great at home, and at work. This morning at work I was checking emails. I did a memory reset, and then a full device format loading from a new aos file. I now cannot connect to the internet. Appslib will not connec...

Re: USB Port (Is Archos working on a solution?)

My USB port did work fine. Now it doesn't. The Micro-SD card reader works fine but the USB port provides voltage/current but no read access. I've tried everything in the book to get it working again to no avail. I've had this unit about 2 1/2 weeks and the USB port worked great. It would read my 28...

Re: Archos 5 IMT works as external HD

my 504 also works, but does drain the 101 battery rather fast.

but now that my 750GB WD external drive works, that will be the route I take.

Re: Archos, please, let us have access to our property (ROOT

forgot to mention, it should void your warranty and any chance for purchased apps as this allows stealing of apps. and big players like netflix won't port their app to an insecure system. but once root is there, there is nothing stopping you from downloading any app you want, paid or not, or saving ...

Re: Archos, please, let us have access to our property (ROOT

Installing the SDE voids your warranty. Why not do the same for root access? . This is the most reasonable approach I cannot see giving most people root access and keeping a warranty in tact. While most computers have some kind of warranty, they do not usually cover 3rd party software, or other OS'...

Re: Battery life with USB Harddrive

good test

I ran an unofficial run down test on an airline flight and was getting 6-7 hours HD video and closer to 10 hours on SD

I would like to do an official test if I could ever stay in one place longer than 5 hours :D

Re: Battery Life?

on a trip to France last week I was getting 6-7 hours HD video or almost 10 hours SD video. I was very happy. (101 on 2.2) Make sure to use it until it dies on it's own (not just reports low battery) make sure it is totally dead. Then charge it using the wall plug for 8 hours at least to give it a t...

Re: HDMI lag?

I've noticed the same lag It makes it very cumbersome to start the movie, or to web surf at all. I tired using a USB and bluetooth mouse and it seemed to make it worse. It does change screen resolution when connecting to a tv from 1024x600 to 1280x720, maybe the extra load is too much for the UI on ...

Re: Audio INPUTS on the 101?

It is a TRS input I believe When I use headphones from my iphone, or my Triple-Fi's with the control button the audio gets garbled. If it does have a 4 conductor plug, then it is wired differently from apples. in fact I have to use an extension that takes the 4 conductor wire to 3 conductor in order...

I have one thumb drive that will not unmount no matter what I do.

Everytime I click unmount nothing happens. I don't know what is causing it. Other drives seem to unmount fine.

I'm pretty sure everyone else has the problem that they can't download it to begin with.

I wrote archos support yesterday but have had no response

Have you tried DL'ing it again? maybe you got a bad transfer
