Question about Archos Gmini 402 Digital Media Player

Open Question

Freezes and doesn't do what I ask...

My player is ok some of the time. Then it gets very slow or doesn't do what it is asked. For example, if I try to skip song... nothing, If i try to turn volume up nothing or one bar every tenth press. Then it can refuse to switch off. I have uploaded new firmware. you need to register with archos support to even contact them - as they haven't emailed a password how can I. Regreting this purchase. Any help...

SOURCE: Archos won't connect by USB to computers

You should keep your eye on the device after its been plugged to the PC it will give you 2 options "charge" or "usb" you ca not establish a connection without picking usb connection option on the Archos screen when it pops up. If you are doing so and problem still existed then i would recommend you to download the latest windows media player. Because it comes with new devices sync driver update.

My Sony Blu Ray was working fine. I bought a used blu Ray it skipped and froze(was completely unresponsive. I had to unplug it to power it off for awhile. It worked for a few minutes and then started...

Does the player work with other blurry discs? If so, then your new- used disc has issues. You can try cleaning the disc or buy a repair kit.
If that doesn’t work you can try a different player.

Netflix asks for my E-mail address and password every time. I do not have this problem when I stream to my computer, Before asking for this info, it displays the films I have already seen.

After reading through the specs for your player, it doesn't look like it has a native App for Netflix. It may be using a Blu-ray live interface to get you to Netflix that requires authentication every time.
Sorry :(

Hope this helps.

Unlock code

If your mobile asks code for Simcard then it must be network locked. You can ask the code with the respective network provider. But most of the providers doesn't provide the network codes when under or after contract. So you can try any online sites for network code for example you can get the network code from . Here you get network code for almost all international brand mobile phones and international networks. It is a reliable, easy and affordable one. All the best mate.

My laptop freezes nearly every time I use it, and is slow to log on to the Internet

Okay, well that could mean a lot of things. First, of all how old is this laptop?..When was the last time you ran a disk cleanup?..Well the reason I asked you how old your laptop was, is because if your laptop is super old then, that's the reason why it is always freezing up. And I asked how long ago it was wen you ran a disk clean up, because in a lot of cases, when people's computers or laptops freeze up, is because they dont run disk clean ups often..and just let unnceccesary files continue to pile up on the computer. So if your computer is old and you never run disk clean ups this is why your laptop keeps freezing up. For example: an older person is walking along..and you give them a sack of potatoes to carry..ok obviously their going to walk every 5 minutes you give them another sack of potatoes. Wouldnt you think that the old person is going to have to stop every now and then and catch their breathe?. Ok, think of a computer like that. Well those are the two main things that came to my mind. Like I said, it could be a number of reasons your laptop is doing this. Hope this helps! :]
