Re: Six months of USB problems

I dont know that it not having Honeycomb makes it obsolete. I've noticed that there are a lot of people that buy a piece of technology these days and if they see something a week later they think it is so much better and they "HAVE to have it!!" right then and there because what the have is suddenly...

Re: Has anyone had a problem with this unit?

It's all good Tracy. In my case I am pretty sure what i am seeing is software related.

Hopefully they can get your squared away with a good working unit. If the update comes out before you send it back, you might want to give it a try. You never know, it might just fix you up.

Nothing to lose right?

Re: Has anyone had a problem with this unit?

Call or email archos and send it back again. I RMA'd mine for a faulty screen and the one I got back is much better. Unfortunately, I am sitting here on my couch watching it reboot itself every 5 minutes, so i am hoping the coming update will get it working right. That or I'll install Urukdroid, whi...

Re: Broken speaker - feedback on Archos warranty repair time

Hey Marcelloz, NOt sure if it helps you any but I had a screen problem and I needed to get an RMA. From the time I shipped it (From VA) to the time I got it back was about a week total.

Hope that helps.

Re: New problem: 101 continually loses calibration

I'd also like to report that I had a really good experience with an Archos RMA for a problem touchscreen. The ?123, ?, _, ., and enter button werent working all that well. They got me an RMA number very quickly and the turnaround was quick as well. I sent it in and a new Archos showed up a week late...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

I'd just like to see them open up their beta program for volunteers in the community. I'm sure there are many on this forum who would jump at the chance to help test out new firmware features. (I know I would.) Oh wait, that's what we do anyway, when they "officially" release a new firmware... I to...

Just checked the Downloads page... No changes yet.


Really hope this resolves my WiFi issue. I really like this device and want it to work at the office like it does at home! :evil:

Re: UrukDroid on Archos 101 ?

Can anyone tell me if installing this would resolve the issue with the Archos not connecting to certain WiFi networks? I bought this so I could use it in to take notes in meetings but for some reason I can not seem to connect to my offices WiFi. Well... I can connect (Get an IP addy etc...) but I ca...

Have you tried advance task manager? You can set it up to automatically kill apps in the background to keep memory free.

Re: Capacitive screen/keyboard not 100% responsive

Hey Skynetbbs, I am having the same problem with mine. If I try to use the number key, space bar, period, etc... they do not respond all the time. It is pretty frequent actually. If I turn the Archos upside down the keyboard works fine but that renders the kickstand useless. :evil: I also noticed wh...

Re: how to read my dvds on 101 ?

I wanted to do this for my Mrs since we were taking a trip from VA to NY this weekend. Here is what I did. 1. Get the free Leawo DVD to AVI converter http://www.leawo.com/dvd-to-avi-converter/comparison.html 2. Install it on the PC you want to rip DVD's on. 3. Move the copy to your desired media loc...

Re: archos 101 charging overnight => never 100%

I had the same issue with mine and thought there was a problem with it but I tried turning off the archos completely and charging it over night. Lo and behold the next day it showed 100%. Funny thing is ever since it seems to be charging fine now (even when left on) all the way to 100%. http://l.yim...

Re: New Archos 101 owner with some questions

Hay Karel, Thanks for the tip. I Just recalibrated the screen using the method you recommended and it didn't seem to help. I am also running into some other issues as I am going along: 1. Battery will not charge past 93% (Plugged in for approximately 9 hours, starting at 63% charge.) 2. Cannot seem ...

Re: New Archos 101 owner with some questions

I sent in a support request through the archos website. Guess I'll just have to see what happens. I think you may be right about the improperly seated cable though... I flipped the archos upside down and the keyboard is working fine. #-o

Thanks for the tips frankws. =D>

ah... That was my concern. I actually did do the recalibration on it so i guess i am SOL on that.

New Archos 101 owner with some questions

Hey guys! I have been lurking here for a few weeks getting some info about the Archos 101. I Got mine from Amazon last night and am overall very pleased, but did have a question (I swear i searched!!) about the keyboard... I am not sure if this is normal behavior or not, but my screen seems to be "d...
