Re: M3U Playlist files

Feel free to try out my music app. It can read m3u playlists copied directly from your pc to your device. Even if the paths in the m3u file don't match the paths on your device it can still usually find the right songs. I actually started building this app because of problems I had reading playlists...

Re: 250gig specific, best Music app

Hi Guys, Sorry for the shameless plug, but you could also give my music app a try. I have an A70 250GB with a music library of 15,000 songs, so I built it with large music collections in mind. It's available in the market and I'm also looking to put it on AppsLib. http://market.android.com/details?i...

Re: SOS! - Archos 70 250GB won't recognize internal HDD!

This happened to me and a few others when the A70 was first released. I ended up RMA'ing the unit and it has not happened on the replacement.

Re: AC3 codec for Archos 70? Cinema add on?

In the latest firmware, there is an option to format storage with ext3, eliminating the 4GB limit.

Re: Archos music player has m3u playlist support?

I have the same problem with m3u files. There have been a couple other threads discussing it, but I haven't seen a solution other than to recreate the playlists on the device.

Re: tips for dealing with "updating multimedia library"

Hey guys, from posts I've seen on other android forums and my own experience, here is how I think the ".nomedia" files work. If you put some media files in a directory, scan them with the media scanner, then put a ".nomedia" file in the directory, the next time the media scanner scans that directory...

Re: Archos 70 250Gb HDD Fail

I had this problem with my first A70 250GB (hard drive disappearing). I RMA'd it and have not had any problems with the replacement unit. I think, therefore, that it is a hardware issue that has been fixed. Can anyone having the issue check what "Board Version" their unit is (Settings > About Device...

Re: Can not detect 250Gb. Please help.

This happened to me. Sometimes a full reset from the recovery menu would bring the hard drive back, sometimes it would just come back after a few reboots. I RMA'd it and so far I haven't had trouble with the replacement unit. There are a few other users on these forums that have reported the same th...

Re: Does archos 70 have the same bad viewing angles as 101?

I don't know about the 101, but I have both an A70 and Nook Color, and compared to the NC, the viewing angles on the A70 are quite restricted.

Re: I am scared of buying archos 70 250 GB, some one help me

I had my A70 250GB for a couple of weeks and it would freeze frequently and then it intermittently stopped recognizing the hard drive after reboots. I just received an RMA replacement and so far it's working okay. However, I have yet to put my entire media collection on it, and that's when things se...

Re: Video file resolution question

The built-in player basically gives you 2 aspect ratio choices. It either keeps the proper aspect ratio as reported by the container (using as much of the screen as possible), or you can zoom out to full screen. Other video players available from the market may have other options. The Archos plays a...

Re: RMA Update

I checked the status of my RMA (A70 250GB) and it says that it shipped yesterday from Addison, IL. This was pretty fast turnaround, since I just sent it in last week. I am wondering however, since the unit is shipping from the RMA location, if they just wiped it and are sending the same unit back. ...

Re: Hard drive issues!?!?

From the number of people posting that their devices stopped recognizing the hard drive, I'm beginning to suspect that this is actually a firmware problem rather than hard drives "failing". My unit would lock up, and then after rebooting the hard drive was gone. After several more reboots or a full ...

Re: Color Nook vs A70...

So can all of the codecs or a media player be installed on the Nook Color so that it can come close to the A70IT as a media player? Personally I care about Xvid & MKV files mostly. Since my A70 250GB had to be RMA'd back to Archos, I picked up a Nook Color to try out in the mean time. I use my tabl...

There have been a few reported cases of the device not recognizing the hard drive after a reboot. Mine was just RMA'd for that reason.
