Re: Adding and playing music

@nigel i reacted in a similar way to you when i read liveinthemoments post(s) but i think i just read a tone into the posts that maybe wasn't intended. the guy genuinely seems to want answers, after all thats what forums are about. i think we should give him and other frustrated users a little slack...

Re: history

go to 'system monitor' > 'running apps'.
this will show you what is running in backround.
click individual app to kill that one or stop all to kill everything.

Re: How to Sync a directory on my PC with a directory on my

@liveinthemoment, sorry I reacted heatedly to your post, must have had my impatient head on. just out of interest, do you want to have all you files with you when away from home, or is your tablet a home device? I don't use mine for music/movies except when at home so I have it set up to stream anyt...

Re: How to Sync a directory on my PC with a directory on my

I am an electronic engineer, involved in audio, so I know how tagging and format syncing works thank you very much. I was merely making a point that the requirements for syncing and tagging that you want are more advanced than the average user. but whatever, I will just move on somewhere else where ...

Re: How to Sync a directory on my PC with a directory on my

I suspect its a limitation of android, not just archos.

Will all due respect I think your syncing/tagging requirments are above what the average tablet user uses, and andriod has to cut its cloth thin to keep everyone happy(ish)!

Yup, shoulda gone for the cowon x7.....

Re: Won't connect to wifi

yes, its so frustrating when a new device goes wrong immediatly. I guess I am one of the fortunate ones who have no hardware problems at all, so far. I wanted a htc flyer, but it was nearly twice the price, and had so many features missing compared to the archos.. I just wish the archos didn't have ...

Re: Won't connect to wifi

if a factory reset didn't work then it must be a hardware fault, - unless someone else more knowledgable thinks of something.
sorry I can't help further.

Re: Won't connect to wifi

might be worth uninstalling the app(s) that yu were downloading at the time in case that's caused an issue somewhere.
a last resort option would be a hard reset, - not so bad since the device is new and you won't have filled it with lots of stuff to lose yet.

Re: Keyboards

depends what port your plugged into. 'offically,' the correct port for plugging USB devices into is the micro USB port, via an USB micro > USB full size adaptor. using this port should just be plug n play, although there are some settings in the settings > input > keyboard, page.

Re: Won't connect to wifi

has your archos got the latest firmware updates?

do you have any other mobile devices to check the wifi signal on?

have you changed any router/access point settings since getting the tablet out the box?

my archos has connected to everything I can throw at it.

Re: Picture Freezing and Crashing

check what flash version you have.
version 10.3 is more stable than later versions.

the CPU/graphics chip used by archos was one of the benchmarks used by android during ICS development, so hopefully when we get the ICS upgrade it will sort the niggles.

Re: New Owner: Cannot Charge Unit

the green light is normally on, when the unit is on, even when not charging. are you using the supplied archos charger AND the SUPPLIED ARCHOS usb charge cable. the tablet will not charge correctly with out it. check your charger/USB lead is working by plugging another regargable phone/device that u...
