WIndows Media PLyer doesn't play mp4 files, neither does the Archos unless you buy the plugin for it (podcast plugin), so try converting the file to windows media 9 format or perhaps divx (look for DR Divx a decent simple freeware converter if you need one)
Oh you can't play mpg either unless you buy the other plugin Cinema or somesuch.

I have put plenty of DVDs onto my Archos, but I use the optional cradle which connect to the TV as well as DVD players. You simply connect the DVD player onto it and play your dvd, which switching on the Recorder function on your unit.

Alternatively, can you convert the DVD onto your PC and then transfer onto the Archos in normal fashion, or is this what you are saying you tried to do already?

I cannot get mp4's to load is that what i have to have


any videos need to be formated for WMV. You can find free programs that will convert an MP4 to WMV for you in a jiffy. Also when placing the video onto the MP3 player, make sure to but it into the ALBUMS forlder on your MP3 player and not the MUSIC folder.

I cannot view films on the mp4 player


Hi Claire, I used to have the same problem with a similar product. Even though the website claims it doesnt need file conversions, it does! I found if you convert it to RMVB, it will play fine.
I hope this has helped,                                   Al.

Copyright Problem


i dont think there is any way to stop that, the publisher makes the dvds with an anti-copy thing for this device, i dont know of any way to combat it, but if you have a laptop, you could open the DVD's folders, and take the DVD files themselves, and copy and paste them onto your computer
