Can't find what Market Reset

Hi,

I know there is Market Reset instructions somewhere on the forum, I have searched but cannot find it. I just got my new Archos back from warranty and have installed evrything, but some apps don't show up in market. What is the correct market reset procedure again?

Thanks,
tired...

Re: Any significant problems with 250GB model?

Hard drive is not spinning anymore, not sure why? Android boots up and i can launch certain apps, it doesn't want to go into Files or Music or Video though.

Re: A70 250GB Screen Pixelation Please help

In feel your pain man, I sent my first one back within 30 days and Archos sent me back a refurbed one with a badly installed screen. That one failed as well and is on its way back, my Archos experience haven't been stellar as well. Good luck.

Re: Any significant problems with 250GB model?

I've sent my second one back already, suspect hard drive failure again, hopefully 3rd time lucky. Starting to cost me in terms of shipping costs though.

Re: Hard drive issues!?!?

Hi, when you return to Amazon, do you need to give them a defective confirmation code? I'm getting no response from Archos, either via e-mail or calling them? I REALLLLY want to get my tablet replaced!!!

Re: Hard drive issues!?!?

Support is REAAAAALLY slow... It's been a week and they have just send me a generic "reset your device" e-mail, no follow ups on my subsequent replies to that. Guess I'll try to call them... come on Archos, don't make people regret buying your product because of bad support.

There is two arrow keys on the pop-up keyboard as well you can use to move the cursor around in a text box.

Re: Unable to transfer mkv files onto A70

You can get software from Archos that will split the file while copying it to your device. It works pretty well and the movie shows one file in your lib only. i.e. you only have to play the first file and it goes automatically to the next segment AFAIK. Look here: ftp://support.archos.com/Generation...

Re: M3U Playlist files

It pulls the file names from the library and I think the music library deletes playlist files it "thinks" are empty. Thanks for testing though!

Re: M3U Playlist files

Maybe let it scan the music first, copy the playlist file over (I copied mine to the root of Music) and let it scan it again. I edited the file on my PC and copied it over yes.

Re: Hard drive issues!?!?

Same problem with mine, can't see internal storage, still waiting on Archos support to get back to me. Apparently you can't replace the hard drive easily. Would have been nice because it will fail again and then it might not be under warranty anymore. I had a HDD model iPod which was replaced due to...

Re: TV out problems

Yes, I also found moving the pointer around while plugged in to the TV and using the device as an touchpad to be sluggish. Clicking is also hit and miss.

Re: M3U Playlist files

Hi, I made a test one that worked perfectly, I couldn't test it with my full music collection because the device stopped seeing the internal storage. I think the hard drive died. Do you want to test the format and see if it works for you? It's really a simpler format than I thought it would be, note...

Re: Archos 70 250 GB and accelerometer based games

Regarding the Raging Thunder app, can anyone advise why I can only reveal the "Lite" version when searching for it on my A70 at the AppsLib, yet when I search on the AppsLib website, the full, paid version appears? I'd like to purchase it, but for some reason, I'm not given the option.... http://fo...

Do the songs have ID3 tags that mark them as song #1, #2 etc? How does the file names look like?

Re: M3U Playlist files

Think I figured it out, blood, sweat and rescans but I think my test playlist did work. I'm copying my whole music collection with the playlist files, doing a rescan and will then check it again.
