Connect the device that you want to get the phone number off of and connect the PDA that you want to put the numbers on to a computer. Open my computer and find both devices in the list and click on the one that you are getting the numbers from and find them on the device and highlight all of them. Then right click and click on copy. Then go to the PDA and paste the numbers there. It should work then.

Yes you can import the phone book into the Archos by exporting the original file into a computer, and then importing on archos.

How to do this depends on two factors:

Export
1 Where do you import from: If the phone book is in outlook, on another PDA or on a computer, you do export contacts from file menu, and export them to a file into a computer.

Import
2 What operative system is installed on Archos:
Archos 605 mounts both Linux and Windows, on Windows you do an import operation from outlook and import contacts.

If you want to import from a non compatible system, like a nokia phone, there ca be troubles in importing the contact files.

If instead you want to import all contacts from an older archos, you just use the archos software to download the old contacts in a file and upload them to the new archos.

Having finally connected my 605 wifi to my tv set up, I cannot for the life of me find how to register my dvr station, that apparantly I must do, so that I can access the tv stations/programmes. I have...


You need to get the Cinema plugin to play .vob, .mpg and .ps files, and the Video Podcast plugin to play mp4, .m4v or .mov files coded in H264



The DVR station is used to record TV shows. Just plug the DVR station to your TV or Cable box or DVD player (you can record DVDs also) and hit record. The Mini dock is used for chraging but you also can connect to your PC with it and playback video to a TV (additional cable needed).

How can I read itune library in archos 101


Hey! To sync your Archos to your iTunes library you need 2 things: The doubleTwist app on your Archos, which you can easily find in the Market. And you also need the doubleTwist client on your computer, there are versions for both Mac and Windows, you can find it here. After you download the app to the pc and android, start the client on your computer and it will guide you through all the steps, you pick the playlists/songs/artists or whatever you want to sync to the Archos and it will sync it to the device next time you connect it! I hope this answered your question!

My P.C is not fully recognising my Archos AV500 and is asking to format it.


The hard drive in the Archos may have become corrupted. A format will most likely fix the issue but the media on the drive will be erased.

I have a Archos 605 wifi, and when trying to save a web page to favorites the Archos shuts down and then restarts.


That's a memory error, I can almost guarantee it's an application compatibility issue or corrupted profile settings.You can try reinstalling the browser application, backing up and restoring the system, or reinstalling the system entirely and copy back you contacts, documents, etc.

Archos av500 hard drive replacement


Downgrade firmware from 1.5.12 to 1.3.12 and then replace the hard drive, it should work. It does not work with firmware versions superior to 1.3.12. If you have 1.5.13 you can downgrade to 1.5.12 using the normal archos update procedure (yes, from 1.5.13 to 1.5.12 you can freely donwgrade using standard offical method). You can find 1.5.12 firmware on the official archos download page. If you need the 1.3.12 version (not available at archos website) it can be retrieved there: http://www.opendrivers.com/freedownload/232939/archos-av500-portable-dvr-firmware-1.3.12-download.html

Archos av 700- Im having a problem with mine it keep coming up with can't read from hard drive error.


It only contains a laptop hard drive, so buy a new one remove all screws from either side of your av700 and replace it, dont worry cause once you open your av700 the hard drive is really simple to swap,then fire it up and format the drive you can download upgraded software from www.archos.com
