Re: Does anyone sell usb charger for 101?

Has anyone actually got these to work well? I bought a similar USB cable ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003059FAI ) and a 2 AMP USB charger ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003GAEW6Y ) from Amazon. Charge is VERY slow.

Re: Can't write to SD card?

I just tried copying from internal to microSD without any problem. I have the 101 with 2.1.8. I used ES File Manager to perform the copy/paste. I recall another thread mentioning that the microSD can not be in NTFS format unless you've rooted. Could this be your problem? That was it. That's too bad...

Re: Can't write to SD card?

I can't write anything to my 32gb SDHC card while it's in my archos 101, if I use the files app and check the details of the card it says the permissions are "can't write, can read". I have filled the card with music and videos using a SDHC->USB adapter having used the archos to format the card fir...

Re: Reading Office docs

Thanks for the replies - I tried a couple of different ones but no luck with. xls files. Not really willing to risk $10 for quickoffice as it will probably do the same. Must be too complex or something... anyway documents to go displays tables in word well so that's good! If you post a link to an X...

Re: Reading Office docs

Quickoffice. Free read only app. Full version is still on sale for 5 or 6 bucks. Don't know how well it does spreadsheets but can be tried for free. QuickOffice is pretty good. I have the paid version. It's doesn't display complex XLS files. (with Macros and such) It also doesn't run animations in ...

Re: Wallpaper changing since last two firmware updates

never happened to me on my 101 using launcher pro which launcher do you guys use? Launcher Pro (Free and paid version) It also happens with the stock launcher. I've seen this on 2 different 101s. Edit: I also have no automatic task killers installed. I do have Quick System Info Pro, but it's not ki...

Re: Games working on Archos 70 IT

Has any one got Spiderman Total Mayhem to work? If so, what version? I'm running 3.2.6 and it exits immediately upon boot up with a message that says, "The Video can not be played" 3.2.6 works well for me. Try redownloading SD content maybe? I'll try that. Good to know that version works. Thanks!

Re: Why Can't I Play Videos Larger Than 2gigs???

Rockstar- How does the issue manifest? Does the player refuse to launch? Does the video play poorly? Does the video play until the 2GB mark and stop? I had a problem early on. PLayback of larger files was very choppy. This was fixed after I ran an update (I think it was the ugrade to 2.0.71) a full ...

Re: Firmware 2.1.08 released - report bugs here

Found something annoying that I hope can be fixed. When you Power Off the device, then go plug it in to recharge it, the device powers up and reboots again. I don't know of any other device that does it. Power OFF means Power OFF. Plugging it in to recharge shouldn't power it back on. i have been o...
