Downloading When ever I plug my archos into the computer I can't pick what I want on it, it just downloads all the files on the computer. Is there some sort of setting I can change so it doesn't do that anymore?

In the settings menu from the front screen, set your Archos to PC Hard Drive instead of Windows Media Player.
It will then just show as an external drive when you plug it into your pc and you can drag and drop files from the pc.

I am trying to get a video off of my Archos device and onto my computer to burn it onto a CD how do I get it off?


Download ES File Explorer from the app store, link your Google Drive and upload your video. You can now download using any computer by downloading from your Google Drive account. Your video may be in a directory called /sdcard/video/ or /sdcard/media/.

Maybe your drivers on the PC have become corrupted for the Archos...try uninstalling them and re-downloading them from here.

* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up, just pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds

DOWNLOADING TO MEDIA PLAYER


1st of all, your Archos needs to be set to PC Hard Drive mode in the settings.
Then when you plug it into your pc, it will just show as a new drive.
You can then simply drag and drop movies, music, flash games, files etc.
The Archos accepts avi files with mp3 sound, however if you purchase the package which allows you to watch DVD's onthe Archos, then you also have a whole load of codec's which means it accepts Real Player files, Dolby Surround sound, you can copy 4.7 gb dvd's straight to it and much more.
