Frozen screen

I have been using a 605 wifi for some time, but recently I have bought an AV 500 100gb off ebay for my brother-in-law, who lives in New Zealand, where Archos devices aren't readily available. I have put in loads of music for him, and some films, but now I can't get past the opening screen, which is ...

Re: Formatting

Fredc, you are officially an Archos genius. I have copied all of the original wallpapers into my device, and EVERYTHING is back to normal, I shall keep this old one as my spare now. I have been more than happy with this old technology, especially after reading loads of negative reviews on the latest...

Re: Formatting

Thanks for reply. I have followed your instructions and have now, at least got the text back, but I am still unable to switch "wallpaper" on, as the button doesn't respond. The device seems to be working ok despite this so I will just put up with it. Thanks once again to everyone who have helped.

Re: Formatting

I have already got the latest firmware from the Archos site installed but have reinstalled it anyway. The one problem that persists is only minor, I know, but it is one which shows me that the device is not running correctly. The screen is a light blue colour. I can get to the "appearance" icon ok, ...

Re: Formatting

Thanks for your reply. I must have been pressing the wrong button! I have managed to format the hard drive, but things are no better. When I press any of the bottom 3 buttons, I get no text, only the spanner icon the speaker/headphone one and the lock, and I am unable now to get into settings. I hav...

Formatting

I want to completely flatten the hard drive on my AV 560 and start again as I have several problems. According to the instructions I have to go to "System" and hold the "down" button for 3 seconds, and a format hard drive panel should open. This doesn't happen. How can I wipe the hard drive?

Re: ARCHOS 700 AC ADAPTOR and Video converter.

My charger for my AV 560, is I think the same one for the 700. It has a little green light in one corner. I have always used IMTOODVD to MP4 converter for bought discs, and have never had a problem, and it is free!

Re: Emitter Code

Hi, sorry I can't be much help, as I have never been able to set up the IR side of my AV 560. I am on Virgin cable, and get round it by scrolling to a future programme and then I am able to set the "change channel at start" feature.

605 TV guide U.K.

The 605 on- screen TV guide lists all the Sky programmes, with a tick alongside, but none of the Sky movie channels is ticked, why? :cry:

Thanks, but still can't find this link. Another problem is that it says the device has already been registered! Oh well thanks anyway.

I am having trouble setting up the tv guide. I have registered the 605. In the book it says to follow the instructions to activate the tv programme guide, but I cannot find this link at all. Help!

Hi. I have always used my av 560 in hard drive mode, as it used to play up using WMP. I have roughly 400 songs stored, and recently all I did to back up these files was to drag and drop the whole music folder onto the desktop. Hope this helps.

If you really must use Limewire, and of course I couldn't possibly encourage you to do so, in the video search option type in the title section axxo, fxm or fxg, these guys generally have excellent quality films for downloading, or so I have been told!

This may be too simplistic, but when I have had this happen it is because I have connected to PC when the battery is low. Make sure you have Archos plugged into the mains, or have a fully charged battery before connecting to PC. PC takes out a lot of battery power.

Have you tried Pocket divx? this worked fine for me with XP, but not for Vista. You can sync audio to video after encoding. Hope this helps.

Encoding

I have problems encoding movies. I have a new laptop running Vista. I never had any problems with XP. I encode using Pocket Divx. Whenever I try to encode now a message comes up saying Mencodersh.exe has stopped working, and Windows are trying for a solution, of course they don't come up with any so...
