Re: Odd HDD write issue

Sorry I can't help you, but then again you posted you question in the 70b (Honeycomb) instead of where it should be. No, I posted it in the "Archos 70b Internet Tablet" section. It's an Archos 70b Internet Tablet, it says so on the front... it just happens to be an oddity in that they released a sm...

Re: System Storage and Updating Apps

I wonder if this is the same issue I'm seeing on my 70b - the /mnt/storage drive has suddenly become mounted as readonly, which is causing a bunch of problems including issues updating apps that are not on the system storage.. Since I don't (yet) have root, I can't fix it. This might be the issue th...

Re: Odd HDD write issue

So the problem is that /mnt/storage is mounted read-only, but I have no idea how this can suddenly happen and without root access I can't fix it...

Weirdly it's writable when accessing via USB, not quite sure how that works.

Odd HDD write issue

Hi all, I've got a weird problem with my 70b 250Gb (froyo 2.2 version). I wonder if anyone can help. This morning, it suddenly stopped being able to write to the HDD from apps, as far as I can tell. Reading is fine, and when connected via USB I can copy files onto the device with no problem. Playing...

Re: Archos 70 version 2 coming later this year or early 2012

Thanks Don, but I think I'll see how far I can get without rooting - I didn't have to root the old A70H to get what I needed.. I think this probably is all a case of the Google Market recognising this device properly. They must have done something to make it work with the A70H, maybe they can do the...

Re: Archos 70 version 2 coming later this year or early 2012

Oh, one other really stupid thing - one of the apps it says is not compatible is my own little AndroGen app - which is stupid, that app is a bog standard SDK app with no hardware requirements at all - the only permission it asks for is internet access. I"m somewhat confused here - as an app develope...

Re: Archos 70 version 2 coming later this year or early 2012

OK, I've read through this thread and am a little confused. I'm also in a slightly different place to the rest of you. My old A70H gave up over Christmas, I assume the HDD died. It was (just) under a year since I bought it, so i asked Archos support what to do and they gave me an RMA, so i sent it o...

Hard disk problem - any advice?

I've had my A70H for about 4-5 months now, and unlike some on here I love it and have had no serious issues (aside from the media scanner being unreliable, but the latest system updates seem to have finally fixed that). I use it for several hours per day on one charge, recharging overnight, and I've...

Any way to disable the internal speakers?

I just had an embarrassing moment on my train home - turns out my A70H speakers had been blaring out my music even though I had headphones plugged in and music was coming through the phones! Of course I remained oblivious as I was listening through my headphones - whoops! :shock: Although the speake...

Re: Anyone else feeling pretty good about the A70?

Pretty happy with my A70H, now I've finally got it to properly index all my music :) I'd have to say, it's not a device for the fainthearted, as it needs a bit of loving care to get it working well, but I'm becoming inseparable form mine now - I've been using for taking notes in meetings at work whi...

Re: Music Player

I've had the media player transition pause maybe 2 or 3 times in total, but that's really infrequent as I've used my A70H a lot. "Simple Last.fm Scrobbler" says I've played 843 tracks in total and I've only had it a few weeks :) My feeling is that I've experienced this when playing around with other...

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 released - report bugs here

I finally got on 2.1.4 and all my video files disappeared! Both on the stock video folder and on the sdcard. The sdcard ones only were recently moved from a .nomedia folder to a new one without, but stock ones never had .nomedia. No other types of media appear to have been deleted. EDiT> All my pic...

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 released - report bugs here

Argh, all my video files are deleted. They were placed into Video folder on internal storage. Never did a reset or format of the device, firmware was updated only via placing the aos file into Archos root. The stock Video App shows the vids still in Library, without thumbnails, but the files are go...

Re: Music Player

For info I just had a response from archos on the 20000 limit issue and they say they are working on it - tech support email on a sunday - I am very impressed and now hopeful that this will be solved.

Re: Music Player

I should also mention that I have several files with different 'artist' and 'album artist' tags and it has imported them just fine - although it doesn't read the artist name correctly and appears to put them under "Various Artists" - mildly annoying but not the end of the world. I've raised a tech s...

Re: Music Player

Some more info on this: you don't need to remove the hash (pound) symbol from your tags, only from the filenames (and any directory names as well). This means it still makes sense to have the hash symbol for searching, as you'll be searching the tags, not the filenames. Remember to also remove it fr...
