Question about Archos 704 WiFi Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I cannot figure out how to put movies on my Archos 704 Mobile DVR. The previous owner just gave it to me without any instructions. I just want to know if there is any way I can download movies off of a place like mp3 rocket and put them on my Archos. Thank you, Gabriella H.

My Archos 705 is not turing on.


704/705 will not power up at all without a bettery that has a little charge. If these batteries are not used they have a tendancy to die. you could try charging it on a DVR for a few days. then when you disconnect it from the DVR immediatly connect it to a DC charger and your lights should then work. Either way I would consider id a warranty claim.

Change my program in archos 704


You can copy files via USB to the 704 using media player in sync mode or drag and drop in windows explorer. Which mode you use depends on what mode the 704 is set.

My archos 704 just got back from the repair shop and will NOT connect to any of my computers..


When ARCHOS is displayed on the screen, immediately press and hold the TV/LCD button until the Recovery mode starts (white screen), without pressing any buttons connect the USB cable your computer should detect it. If it does it may mean that the software is corrupt. while in recovery mode select repair disk. You could also try reinstalling the firmware.

Archos 704 wifi not starting up


If you enter recovery mode then connect to a computer, you can then use windows drive checker to verify the drive. If all is OK, copy firmware to the root then disconnect and reboot

Cannot play any movies


Hi,

A couple of procedures you can try:
1. Do a soft reset. Press on the power button for about 15 seconds;
2. Do a full/hard reset by removing the batteries and pressing the master reset button;
3. Do a Systems Recovery by powering on and immediately press/hold the TV button till Recovery Mode is displayed. Follow on screen instruction of Forcing Touch Screen Calibration. You may need also to format the internal HD but that would mean you loose whatever data is inside.

If the above is not corrective, it is possible that as you posted it may be a hardware issue. Some users have reported serious hardware or firmware problems with the 704 that would require replacement by the manufacturer.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Archos 704 Wifi - does not play AVI file until its full lentgh


I had the same issue.
The size of the AVI cannot exceed 1gb or the end of the movie will never play.

I had a movie that was 1,7gb. 2 hrs and 15 seconds.
The Archos recognized this as a 1.7gb file and 2:00:15 long.
As soon as the movie started, the time line bar at the bottom of the screen went from 2:00:15 to 1:10:25. Basically, it cut off the last 50 minutes of the movie.

I simply divide the movie into 1gb chunks.

I decrypt the DVD to the computer
Use Nero Recode to convert it to and MP4. Divide the movie into 1gb chunks and Maximize the Volume.
Use SUPER to convert it to an AVI / MPEG-4 / MP3.
Copy this to the Video folder of the Archos.

This is simply something that Archos does not want to admit is an issue. They want you to purchase the Cinema plugin.
