Yes you can download music from the net
No you can't use it as a word processor (not yet anyway)
Widgets are not yet available - they are due any time now

Check you have the output from the cable box to the input on the docking station and the output from the docking station to the input on the TV. Double check all your connections. If in doubt, rip them all out and start over. Once connected you will have to set the TV to one of the Aux channels to see the content and ensure you hit the TV button on the Archos to push the output to the TV.

Downloaded music but will not play.


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

My archos is showing recovery code 101


It is indicating that there is a hard drive fault. Here is another users suggested method to clear the fault.
Following some extensive use I switched it on one day to find that it hung on the Archos home screen and kept going in a loop. Luckily I could see the red HDD light flickering so knew that the Archos was trying to do something and that the HDD was recoverable. When I entered into the recovery mode I found that I had an recovery code (101) which indicates a HDD fault.

I used the following steps to recover the HDD:-

1. Connect the archos to the PC using the USB cable (the unit will start but will need to be shut down again by pressing the power button)
2. Press the power button and the 'lock' button together for a few seconds and you should get a basic recovery screen
3. Scroll down to repair disk and select
4. Click on done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in 'My Computer' (Note that this does take a few minutes)
5. You now need to back up your data, movies, music, widgets etc as the next step is to format the Archos HDD which will wipe it all.
6. Disconnect the Archos, turn it off and then turn it back on again by pressing the power and 'lock' buttons together.
7. Scroll down to format disk and select. The Archos will now delete all files on the HDD and you will get a message asking to connect to a PC and install the update file. This is the firmware file that can be obtained from the Archos website. You'll also notice that the recovery code has changed from 101 to 108
8. Connect the Archos to the PC, wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in 'My Computer' again.
9. Drag the firmware update file from your PC where you've downloaded it to directly on to the root drive
10. Click 'done' on the Archos and it will begin to update the operating system.
11. Once this is complete then there should be an update successful message, select done and the archos should restart giving you the nice bubble screen and asking if you want to enable USB.
12. Note that the Archos is now in a 'factory built' condition so you'll need to adjust settings etc according to your preferences.
13. You can now start the long process of transferring your files back to the Archos.

How can i put music on my Archos 5?


Once you connect your archos 5 to the computer, it will ask you whether u want to "enable USB' or "charge only"....select enable USB (OK). then go to "My Computer", and you will see a graphical image of the archos 5, under the name "portable devices"..
Double click on it, until you get to the "music" folder..and once you open this folder, you cn start copy-paste....- where you copy the music file from a folder in your computer, then paste it to the 'music ' folder on your archos..and you're done!!!!
peace..!

Before i buy it i need to know if i need a broadband dongle to connect the archos 5g to the internet


The Archos 5g should have 3g access to get on the internet as long as you get the Archos through a service provider. Where are you located?

Archos.com information:
The ARCHOS 5g does even better. Not only do you have an uncompromised web experience, but you can have it all-day, everyday. Surfing the web is now completely seamless.
You can watch online video or download movies or music albums from the Media Club even when you’re in the train. With its high storage capacity, you surely can download a lot ! And since the 3.5G network provides the same navigation comfort as your home broadband connection, you will hardly notice any difference.
All of this without compromising the essential features of the ARCHOS Internet Media Tablet.
You can store and play all your digital library in high definition quality. And since it is an ARCHOS 5, you can connect it to a DVR Station, and record TV. Just like that.
