Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Archos AV500, and sometimes (increasingly often) when I try to copy large avi files (>1GB), it comes up with an error saying it cannot copy the file because "the device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected". I can always predict when this is going to happen, as when I initiate the copy from the PC, using Win Explorer, the HDD light blinks rapidly on the Archos, then stops blinking, and I never get an estimated copy time in the copy dialog on the PC; if it is going to work, the HDD light on the Archos stays just about ******* and I quickly get up a copy time estimate. I have applied the latest firmware to the Archos. I am running Vista Business on the PC. Small files seem to copy OK. I copied one >1GB avi from the Archos to the PC (no problem), then tried copying it back and hit the error.

I dont know how well this will work but you can always archive it using WinRAR or 7-Zip or something to make it small enough to copy over? If that would work it seems that it might be one of the only solutions.

Copying Video from archos 605 wifi to computer


I think the Archos 605 has a 2gb file limit, so the only option would be to split the avi.
Search on Google for an avi splitter - there are some free ones out there.

Need to know quick


if you are putting a vob file on to the archos you will need to get the cinema plug-in from archos.com to play it then you just copy and past on to your archos. but it is better if you use a divx converter. you can get this for free just type it in to google. the converter will make the vob file into a avi file which is much smaller then you should just be able to copy and past on to your archos.

Archos AV500 HD Replacement


I have found someone who can replace the hard drive al they will need is the serial# from the HD it also depends on the size of memory you have. They will program the HD and send it to you with the instructions ob how to install. I will post here as soon as I receive the new HD back. So Archos lied saying you cannot replace the HD yourself.I will never buy another Archos product again. I have two the AV500 and the 605 wifi which is a joke with all of the Accessories they want you to purchase.I believe they design the products to fail so you would have to purchase their new products and all of the crazt accessories to get it to do what is supposed to do in the first place.Horrible company

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.
