Re: Archos 5 it and Ebuddy

I don't think it's a problem with ebuddy. Does your Archos normally make a noise when you receive notifications?

Re: Angry Birds Android Beta

I got it working. Just kept starting it up and tapping everywhere. About the 20th try I did a long press while it was loading and it started working.

P.S. fullscreen mode was set to ON

Re: Reading in tub a no no apparently

I think your device is afraid of being dropped and killed. Put a lanyard around your wrist and it should stop whining.

Re: Calling all those who have repaired screens!!

If you used google market to install your apps you can just reinstall the same ones (even the ones you bought) on your working Archos 5

Re: The New Hotmail and Default Browser

AH. Not just me then - and I haven't upgraded my Archos for some time as why fix what ain't broke ... He/she means that Hotmail was the one who had the update. They changed their whole system around. I also use Hotmail and am completely satisfied with connecting it to the default Email App. That wa...

Re: It is kind of a shame.....

cellphones can also find a relative position by using the cellular towers (somehow), and also a few other tricks. But since the Archos 5 doesn't have cellular capabilities we are out of luck. Search A-GPS and you'll know what I mean. Edit: here's a good link to better inform you. http://www.wmexpert...

Re: Archos 5 it 500gb, running out of space for installing

You can only install apps in the apps partition and there is no way to resize it that I know of. Starting with android 2.2 (I think), you can chose to move apps to the sd card (if they are compatible), but we might never see 2.2 on our Archos 5's so I guess you're out of luck Sorry... I wish there w...

Re: Some Widgets are clipped off

If you use a home replacement app, it should display the widgets differently (possibly correctly).

Re: CoPilot Live update

When I try to install copilot 8.2.0.218 it says that my archos is out of space. I have 96 gb free of space? Can anyone help me? Thanks It means your app storage partition is out of space.

Re: Has anyone tried SIMH Simulator for Android?

Thanks for the reply. My interest is in mainframe. Has anyone out there tried the paid app on the A5A? I haven't, but remember that the Android Market lets you gives you a refund if you uninstall within 24 hours of purchase so I recommend giving it a try. Let us know how it goes too. Good luck! ~Gr...

Re: Buying device from archos.ca? Is it reliable?

Is there anyone who bought things from http://www.archos.ca and is satisfied? I made two different purchases and although the devices were sealed, I had 1 dead pixel on each screen... Was it just a coincidence or something stinks? I bought all my Archos stuff from there. It was great! I know what y...
