Re: Few quick questions about the tablet

I will answer the questions I can. You can not charge it through the Archos USB port but you can by an adapter that will allow you to charge from the USB port of a computer. The other end of this adapter still plugs into the Archos charging port. You can use the included micro usb cable or a third p...

Re: Cannot write to micro SDcard

I don't know if this is true, but I did read it somewhere.

If the card is formatted as FAT32, you shouldn't have a problem writing to it. If it is formatted as NTFS, you won't be able to write to it.

Re: Archos: Never again. Worthless support. >8(

I had much better luck using email to contact tech support in the US. They gave me an incorrect answer on a couple of days after I contacted them. They then followed up with another incorrect answer when I emailed them again. In the US they may not give correct answers but at least they are courteou...

Re: I've had enough of the A70

Aloha Airedale, In order to extract the microSD card you have to press the card and then it springs up. I suspect you inadvertently pressed it and it popped loose. A small piece of clear tape would prevent that from happening again. You are correct. I took the micro SD card out of my phone and put ...

I've had enough of the A70

I've had a lot of fun with my A70. Yes there are some bugs but for the most part it is a pretty nice device for the price. Now something has happened that has convinced me to shop for another brand of tablet. The micro SD card fell out somewhere and my chances of finding it are slim to none. There i...

The same problem exists for the A70 without the hard drive. http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=73&t=42321&hilit=losing+files+from+the+sd+card I reported this to Archos on December 3rd and their solution was to reset the A70 back to factory settings, deleting all my apps in the process.

Re: US availability, links to stores that have it in stock

I've been lurking on here. I just bought one from Newegg for $274.99. It shows as 299.99, but at checkout it's $274.99. It shows as $274.99 on Newegg now. One of my coworkers wanted to buy 2 of these for his nephews so thanks for the heads up. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Re: Quirks of preloaded apps?

The preloaded Gallery stopped working on my A70. I don't see a way to uninstall it.

I've been using JustPictures! but that doesn't work if you are running the Facebook app. You can only add photos from the onboard camera and the preloaded Gallery.

Re: WYSE PocketCloud

Thanks for the replies. I guess I'll remove it and reinstall. I hope I can get it to work. If I could get it working I'd definitely pay for the app so I could get encryption.

Has anyone gotten WYSE PocketCloud to work with Froyo? I installed it and it sees my PC but crashes immediately when I try to connect.

You aren't done until you get 3 stars in every level! I got that done on the holiday Angry Birds but I'm a long way from doing it in the original.

It just happened to me again. When Archos support suggested that their latest firmware corrected the issue, I backed up everything on the SD card and removed the .nomedia folder.

I haven't YET but thanks for the warning. I'll make sure to keep everything on my SD card backed up. If I lose any files I'll just put the .nomedia file back. That was working.
