Which video format to save space?

Hey everyone,
I'm looking to use handbrake to convert a bunch of movies that I have for my A70. Which settings/format do you guys use to save space on your device? I have about 40GB total on my A70 (8gb flash + micro sd card) and will be gone on a month long trip.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Losing files on the micro SD card

as a temporary workaround, you can put a file named ".nomedia" in the sdcard root folder, that seems to prevent the lost files it seems, we are still investigating what happens. So to make this work, do I just name some random file ".nomedia" (i.e. a folder) and place it in the root folder of the S...

Re: Looking for a car charger for the A70IT.

Can't we use the data transfer cable as I read somewhere in the document that the same cable can be used to charge? If that's the case, we can just buy usb/car charger and plug it in? USB charger would cost 2 or 3 dollars. nope, the A70 and the A101 do not charge via the usb port. Only the other sm...

Re: Looking for a car charger for the A70IT.

Anyone here know where to buy a car charger? I tried my local RadioShack and came up empty. You can also try this from Gomadic. You'll need the correct tip and any of their cables to make it work. I know it says its for the HTC incredible, but the parts are universal. I can confirm that the tip wor...

Re: Confirmed: Charging via Gomadic USB cable!

When I go to order the cable it wants to know what kind of device I have. When I select Archos 70 internet tablet, the cable isn't shown as an option. Which device did you tell Gomadic you have so that you could get the correct cable :?: Thanks! Yeah this part is kind of tricky I had trouble with i...

Re: Lexerd - Archos 70 Internet Tablet TrueVue Screen Protec

Just applied the screen protector to my A70. Ordered from Amazon, got to me in 3 days! Application was easy, make sure you have a can of compressed air though. It makes the initial cleaning step a lot easier. Protector went right on without any trouble, was the correct size, and has a very nice feel...

Confirmed: Charging via Gomadic USB cable!

Ok I hope the title wasn't too much of a misnomer, but with the USB cables that I got from gomadic.com (suggested by sequitur and techknow61 on this forum, thanks by the way! =D> ), I am able to charge my A70 with a USB battery through the DC port. Which works out well for the two 13 hour flights I ...

Re: Losing files on the micro SD card

Good practice is to format the card with the device you intend to use it in - try it and see if it solves the problem I seem to be having the same problem, loaded up an entire season of a TV show and when i tried opening it up today the folder was still there but the videos were gone. Bought a 32gb...

Re: Protective Case

Just bought one of these on eBay for $19, has two pockets (one front, one back) and can slip over the handle on most carryon luggage. It says its made for the nook, so it should be pretty close to the A70's size. I'll post pictures once I get it in, i figure if it isn't a good fit I can always give...
