Re: Viewsonic G-Tab Bites Dust

The G-Tablet is still available at Office Depot.

Oooof, 29 ounces, 1.8 pounds, 820 grams, that's a bit heavy for me.

Re: So much 7" and 10", no smaller competitor?

I think it is all because of the iPad. Everyone wants to get in on the market and sell millions of tablet like Apple did.

Re: SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB

BestBuy has the TAB in their stores. But geez, I can't get near the demo model. One time it was a customer hogging it for way too long. Yesterday the store clerk was playing with it, I asked about it and he kept playing. Guess I'm going to have to get pushy.

Charbax has a short video on youtube comparing them. He was at the JKKmobile table and showed how similar they were. It's not a review, just a general comparison.

Re: Well, today is the 18th..

I'm disappointed, I would like to see and feel one before I buy. It's going on my Xmas list, but if Archos keeps delaying, there are many more competitors showing up. I'm sure Archos is aware of this and should be in panic mode.

I'll bet if you invited him over to party, he would then be motivated to answer the Archos questions. Then you could post his answers here. Anyone? Anyone in No. California?

Re: Buying an archos 101 at a Saturn in Germany

The trip to germany was a success! I am now the proud owner of an archos 101 8gb :D OK, I'm jealous. I made a special trip to Munich just to visit Saturn (ok, not really, I happened to be in Munich for business). I was very disappointed at Saturn. First, for some silly reason, I looked for Archos i...

Re: Just bought - USB problems

OK, it sounds like you are an experienced archos user. But the android devices are not the old archos. The files on the archos are in linux (android) format. So . . . if you are connected to a windows computer, the files will not show up, until you install the ext3 fs driver.

Re: 5 it won't mount

heehee - do you have the extfs driver installed on win xp? The A5A is a linux device, windows will not recognize it. (well, I think windows media player might recognize it if you do put the A5A into MTP mode. did you try that? settings ---> device storage and USB ---> USB connection mode ---> MTP )

Re: 5 it won't mount

This may not solve your problem, but I will mention it, because it is a mistake I made. I had changed the USB mode on my A5A to MTP (to sync music), instead of my normal MSC (mass storage). Then I plugged it into my Fedora box and it would not mount. I kept trying, several times, until I remembered ...

Re: DVR Station remote problem

You've tried the easy things. I assume you tried moving around when using the remote. It does have to be line-of-site,since it infrared. Or, there may be a problem with the DVR station itself. It might be worth calling archos.

I suppose it's not what you want for an answer, but will semi-auto help? The normal photo viewer does have a quick hand gesture that rotates photos 90 degrees. slide your finger from the bottom to the top of the A5 when viewing the photo. ----------------------- ( /\ ) ( | ) ( | ) (_________________...

Re: my pc doesn't recognize the archos 5

Bad cable? If different PCs don't recognize the A5, it's either the cable or the A5 itself. Not much can go wrong with the cable, I realize. But it's worth a shot, trying a different cable (Or a different A5.) to narrow down the problem.

Hmmm, it went up $10 at J&R. Still a nice deal, but why $159 now, instead of $149?

Re: my pc doesn't recognize the archos 5

Well, not sure what to tell you. Do you have any more symptoms to share? Does the USB port on the Archos feel broken? Some people, though very few, have had this problem. What USB setting are you using on the Archos? You said you changed it, but what did you change if from? To what? You probably wan...

Re: has anyone tryed the mark/space sync software?

Thanks for pointing this out. I'm not running it, but if you are not familiar with missing sync, mark/space is a solid company with solid products. They started out providing the Palm Pilot sync for Macintosh, which Palm didn't make (hence "missing"). It's worth checking out. I'll search for it on t...

As an Archos user, and since I don't have an Android phone, this is a "feature", not a "bug". This is great. I get skype calling on my tablet. I get phone calls on my phone. So many choices.
