Archos replaced my broken 32IT... Thank you, Archos!

I bought it at Christmas last year, used it every day since then. About 2 weeks ago, I started having lockups so bad even when I shut it down, it would get stuck on the boot logo. I didn't have it rooted, I did have the latest firmware. I called support twice in one day, they assigned an RMA. I ship...

Re: can't mount archos 32 and other problems

Re: Automatic shutdown

not all the way off, but with the latest firmware you can set the device to go into deep sleep instead of just display off.
settings - about - power management - deep sleep

alarm will not wake up device, must press power button to wake. battery lasts pretty long in deep sleep on mine.

Re: Archos 32

Is a big difference between the Archos 43 screen vs the archos 32 screen? yes. 1 inch is a lot. but it costs a lot more. Can I connect my WD Passport 500gb to browse and play archives? many people have trouble with host mode. if you use a powered hub, you should be able to supply enough power for a ...

Re: Can you use memory stick with the USB port?

I found microsd cards in a mini reader work fine, both for my 32 and as a flash drive. I can use it in my phone and GPS also. Nice to be able to transfer from anything to anything. I have a few 8Gb which seem enough for me.

Re: Archos 32 Problem (Black Screen, Won't Turn On)

Sounds like the battery went dead. Leave it plugged into the computer or on a charger for a few hours or overnight and try again.

Re: Rubber case

the MS Zune has almost identical dimensions. I bet with a little trimming, you might be able to fit one. I use a cell phone case usually.

Re: Re-Register

http://www.tempfiles.net/download/201102/145189/Manuals.html unzip© to your sdcard root on the player. I had to do this when I reset the player, it wiped all the files. This is just the manuals directory. Once it is there, you should be able to click your manual button and have it open correctly.

Re: Re-Register

ftp://support.archos.com/ has a copy of the flash drive contents. Do you have a manuals directory on your device? if not, you can restore the directory and the link should work then.

If you PM me your email, I could send you just that directory, it's only ~4Mb zipped.

Good luck!

Re: Problem with my archos 32! HELP!

very strange things happen if it's not charged up. I'd let it sit for a while (a few hours) before you try again?

You did the full reset?

Re: Looking into buying a 32, have some questions

I do have the latest firmware = 2.1.04 I just tried a new conversion using mpeg2 video and mp3 audio. Seemed kind of slow, I could probably speed it up some by cutting the bitrate some. I think you need the plugin when you have aac audio, like a true dvd rip would have? To me it seems like a lot to ...

Re: Looking into buying a 32, have some questions

I'm sorry you thought I was rude, I apologize if that's how it sounded! Playon sounds kind of neat- You need to also subscribe to Hulu premium as well as Netflix to watch all the shows, right? Plus the cost of the playon $40 for first year? I have an older mp3 player with Rockbox on it (Sansa E250)....
