Hi!

I think you are not copying the correct format of files into your archos av 500. It only plays .mp4 extension files. Try copying .mp4 files into your archos and see if it works fine.

Thanks

If you are unable to perform a firmware update on the player you will most likely have to send it in for service.

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.

How do i transfer dvds via my computer to my archos404 mp4 player?


First copy the files from the DVD to the computer. Insert DVd, and drag files to desktop. then run the files through the Archos media converter. A typical DVD is about 700MB, so you won't be able to fit many on there.

I have an Archos 605 WiFi. I haven't yet connected my Archos docking station to the TV and HDD. Meanwhile, I thought I would copy a programme from the HDD to a DVD, then put the DVD in the computer and...


What kind of HDD do you have, do you have any type of output on it. You stated that you haven't connected the docking station to it and the TV...? The best thing to do is to connect your Archos to the Docking station. Set the docking station up correctly, with cables coming out of the HDD (if it has some sort of output) to the station and out of the station to your TV. Once you set that up, you can use the Archos as a mini DVR or VCR. Go to the REC option on the main screen of Archos, you'll have an option for Video Recorder (tab on top). If you play any source on the HDD, then all you have to do is press the Rec option on the Archos. If you already have a file on the HDD, then try just moving it over into the Archos once you connect the Docking station to your computer via USB or just use the USB cable connected to the computer with the HDD. I use the USB preference as Windows Media Device. (found under menu/settings/system). Is is basically a HDD itself. Remember the Archos will only play certain videos without the purchase of any extra plugins.
Good Luck

Once you have downloaded the file to your PC simply connect your archos to your pc using USB cable provided, select PC hard drive mode, and simply copy or drag and drop from one destination to the other. Your Archos usually appears as J:Archos604WiFi if you have a built in card reader if not it may appear as an earlier letter in the alphabet.
