Hello Roylovelock,

According to this site http://www.pocket-lint.co.uk/news/news. ... PMPs.phtml

It says 'The Archos 505 should have a 40GB capacity, a 4.3-inch screen and cost around £170.' but that was DATED 11 June 2007. :lol: ;)

Thanks.

Shaun.

605 Spare Battery????

Hello.

I'm thinking of getting my wife to buy the 605(160gb) for my birthday, I'm at my wits end whether to get the 504(160).

Is the battery in the 605 inter-changeable??? I have read that the battery only lasts about 5.5 hours. That's no good to me, I'll need a spare.

Thanks for ANY info on this.

1. You can only record what you are watching. The only way to record another channel is to get another Freeview box.

2. Have a look on google.

Hello.

Have you tried the settings in display??? PAL/NTSC.

When I last went on holiday, a cruise, I connected the 404 to the TV in the room, I got what you are saying. I went into display settings and changed from PAL to NTSC and it worked fine.

Good luck.

Hello Ann, I have just set someone's 504 up, with the Docking Station. I had the same problem as you, with the scart adaptor, the one that say's 'Input/Output', it must be set to 'Output'. This is the Scart. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Scart-plug-adaptor-switchable-switch-3-phono-S-VHS_W0QQitemZ1601491661...

Right, just had another look at this. There is NO-WAY I can get the screen out, without taking the 404 apart. If you do it the NEWMP3 way, you will proberly be making MORE work for yourself. The 404 screen DOES come away, ALL OF APPROX 0.5" to 1". There ISN'T enough ROOM to get your fingers in. If y...

ETM, Yes, when the 404 is all together, the Hard Drive is on the Right Hand side, UNDER the Buttons.

If you think the H/Drive is moving, have a look. There should be like RUBBER sticky things around the H/drive. If one of these Rubber things has moved position, then the H/Drive will move.
