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

Cannot copy video from JVC GZ-HD6 camcorder to DVD Recorder


If you can play the vision on your tv via an av connection you should be able to record it onto the recorder. the recorder can record anything thats being played on the tv even if the other device is connected to the tv via another av connection. try this & see if it works.

How do I play my Sanyo VPC-CG6GX recording on a TV & make copies


I was just looking in the Sanyo CG6 Users Manual for you about how to watch your videos on your TV.

I noticed on page 136 there is a TV Systems Setting, to choose between NTSC (american TV) and PAL (Asian or European TV). Perhaps it is set to PAL while you are in North America, or vice versa?

Otherwise, you seem to be on the right track; when the miniplug is in the camera and the yellow, white & red leads go to the TV, the camera should by using your tv instead of its little screen.

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
