Re: Version 1.4.09 is here...

If it crashes and I hold the power down to force shut it down, it comes up in a state where it forces speaker use and wont switch to headphones without rebooting.

Re: OPENS UP HARDWARE PLATFORM TO DEVELOPERS ( for a605)???

I would love it if I could resuscitate my a605 with the ability to tie it to another HDD.

Pls open it up.

Re: 1.3.07 is there

After hard shutting my a5a down (hold power for 10s) the system comes on and only works through the speaker, plugging in the headphones does not cause them to work. This is resolved only by rebooting as the swap between speakers and headphones is greyed out. A lot of the time videos I am playing wil...

Re: 1.3.07 is there

1) Still wont connect to my Linksys WRT54GL, fails to obtain IP address is reported.

2) Occasionally reports files are broken and quits them, when they are not. Going back to replay same file works (sometimes needs reboot to fix).

I'll report more as I try the new firmware more.

Re: You're doing it WRONG

If Windows says that you have to reformat your device, just ignore that and use the MTP mode and it should work fine. If the Archos device is reporting it then I'd worry about that. Also, the 500GB is hard drive based and every bit as prone to wear and tear as a normal hard drive in your computer. ...

Re: You're doing it WRONG

So should I worry about the error message that the archos reported that I may need to reformat my drive? At what point should I take such a message seriously?

Re: You're doing it WRONG

I've been mostly using mass storage mode. Why is MTP better? I've also seen reduced transfer speeds to the device. It bursts for a bit then it slows to a chug. Considering this is a 500g HDD I should see at least steady transfer rates greater than 15MB/s I had the same issue. Windows says I need to...

You're doing it WRONG

Okay, I seriously think I must be bad at dealing with archos devices. This is my third one, I had an AV140, a 605 wifi, and now a5a 500gigggerrr. The second one showed this a couple times, and now I'm seeing it on this one. It is acting sluggish, wierd errors are happening, and the OS is now reporti...

Re: Firmware 1.2.15 - report bugs in here

I tried to upload a insane clown posse album onto my archos. When I would go to play it it would read the ID3 tags properly, but actually play "The Slip" by NIN that was also on there. It acted like it was opening the right files but the audio was the other album. I have not yet figured out a work-a...

Archos wont get IP from my wifi router

I have a WRT54GL with tomato on it and it won't complete connection, it tries to get an IP and fails. This so far is the only AP which it fails on. I have scoured through the settings and found no logical reason why it is failing. I tried re-enabling the DHCP server, but no luck. It has plenty of si...

Re: Firmware 1.2.15 - report bugs in here

Sometimes when USB is connected it wont ask me if I wanted to mount the partition. Also sometimes when it does mount it doesn't actually show up in the OS. So far full power cycles fixes it, for now.

Re: Archos 5 gets a failing review at CNET

All his "the bad" arguments are just pure random nonsense and can be debunked one by one. What you have there is an iPod fanboy reviewing for a big media site. I've been watching cnet reviews for a long time. While they may be owned by CBS, I would not call shenanigans on their credibilit...
