Can't link my archos to my laptop

I've got a (fairly) old Archos AV 500 (100gb) which links to my desktop, but won't link to my laptop. Is there anything obvious that I'm missing? The laptop doesn't even recognise it when connected.

Thanks

1. Copy all factory installed files from the Archos on to your PC hard drive or write a CD / DVD.
2. Download the latest software from www.Archos.com and keep a copy safe (not on the Archos!) … there was a new version last week by the way …1.5.12
3. If you record any films, music, or TV that you want to keep forever then don’t keep them on the Archos!
4. Factory installed samples (photos & films), wallpaper, etc are available for download from FTP://support.archos.com
5. If you need to format the drive but it won’t talk to the PC through the normal USB, try plugging a flash memory card (the bigger the better) into the other (left hand) USB socket and copy stuff onto it.
6. Avoid changing back & forward between ‘hard drive’ and ‘windows device’ … not sure if this was the cause of the problem but you never know!
7.Always have mains power (not battery) when moving files around.

What type of browser does the archos 7 have? I know it is not windows internet explorer like on my laptop.


Archos uses Opera as the web browser - you may need to download the plug-in from the Archos site. Here is a link for a general review of several browsers including Opera http://www.yourhtmlsource.com/starthere/browserreview.html

Broken screen


Here are a couple of links of were to get a replacement LCD Screen.
It should come apart fairly easy and the lcd ribbon should unplug so then you can place the new one in and plug it in.
I hope this helps to give you an idea of the cost.

HI, bought the following off ebay and they worked just fine. I to thought that the socket on the right side was audio only. Can't get a picture via my DVR (may be a fault) however this item works great.
