Re: Archos 70 Internet Tablet kindle and mobi files

Are you looking in the On Device screen? I've noticed that sideloaded .mobi files often don't show up in the Home screen until after you have opened them from the On Device screen.

Re: Do you still use your gen 8?

I got my firesale HP Touchpad about a month ago, and after the initial "new-toyness" of it wore off, I've settled into a routine where I use both it and my A70S. A lot of the time I still prefer reading on the Archos because the smaller form-factor is lighter and easier to hold for extende...

Re: UrukDroid 1.5 review

I also took the plunge and rooted with Uruk 1.5. I tried Harfainx's root and app space method which wasn't working for me (I think because of the 2GB partition issue). I then went to Uruk and haven't had a problem since. It even connects to my Verizon iPhone 4 wifi hotspot without any kind of modifi...

Re: Music Player Doesn't Show All Albums

My only other suggestion would be to go into Settings->Repair & Formatting->Reset multimedia library

This has sometimes helped me in the past as well.

Re: Music Player Doesn't Show All Albums

Hi, I just got my 70 IT after many years with the 504. I almost filled my 504 and the 70 IT was the only player with enough capacity to enable me to keep my music close-by and growing. BUT - I just discovered that the music player doesn't show all my albums. I have everything arranged in album-name...

Re: A70S Wifi to Verizon iPhone Personal Wifi Hotspot

I had success after rooting the A70 with UrukDroid. I tried the Harfainx Guide for changing appspace and rooting, but didn't meet with success. Afterwards I installed UrukDroid 1.5 and got it working fairly quickly. An interesting thing I noticed is that I didn't have to fool around with any files a...

A70S Wifi to Verizon iPhone Personal Wifi Hotspot

All, I tried to set up my A70S to connect via Wifi to my Verizon iPhone with the Personal Wifi Hotspot service enabled. It finds the phone and sets up the connection, but it never actually connects (or connects for a second and then disconnects). Is this because the iPhone is an ad-hoc Wifi connecti...

Re: GPS Pairing: All GPS Apps crashing when trying to use GP

I was having problems with my TomTom Bluetooth GPS gadget and CoPilot crashing back when I first got them. What solved it for me was changing the processor speed setting from Overdrive back to Optimal.

If you're running in Overdrive, you might try switching back and see if that helps.

Re: CoPilot - Fix for Update Problem and Screen Scambling

I can confirm that this works with my Google Checkout code for purchase of CoPilot Live USA. I installed the APK, entered my checkout code and CoPilot Live ID, and everything came up correctly on my A70S. And I can confirm that the screen scrambling is gone on the A70 also. Nice work, Marlbrook. Tha...

Re: Bluetooth Headphones for Archos 70 250 gig

Got my Bluedio Av900 blue adaptor today, it appears that it doesn't work, charge light doesn't come on. The website I got it from appears dodgy, rather annoyed. Dino Direct watch out for it. I'm going to look for an alternative, I'd prefer an adapter as I have a decent set of headphones but I might...

Re: Archos 101 VS Ipad

But what can you do with it, once it's paired? The ideal would be to be able to use e.g. Copilot or NDrive, but Copilot, at least, doesn't support external GPS, except on the iPhone. I can pair any of my external BT GPS devices to my A5 IT, but it just ends up "Paired but not connected". ...

Re: World series of poker: Hold'em Legend does it work?

Works for me on A70 8GB with latest firmware. However, it doesn't take up the full screen. It looks like it's hard coded for a phone-sized screen.

Re: Why can't I actually buy and download Kindle books?

I'm not sure what issue you're running into, but I just "bought" a free book and it downloaded wirelessly onto my Kindle for Android app on my A70 without any problems.

Any thoughts?

I have a Verizon Tour and tethering worked for me out of the box without any root fixes. I'm actually using Verizon's tethering service, not PDANet or any of the other apps though.

Do you have a URL for the Rockwell adapter from newegg? I searched "Rockwell" there and all I get is movies with Sam Rockwell in them, and when I add additional search terms I get 0 results.

Mine locked up three times during my first trip as well. I changed the power management from Overdrive to Optimal, and it worked very smoothly after that. I traveled in parts of 3 states (New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts) during my last trip, and CoPilot handled that without any issue. I just...
