How do I transfer my sermons from my laptop to my Archos 101?


2 ways:
1. Copy sermon files from laptop to USB drive, then mount USB drive to Archos, go to files, external drive, copy files to ARCHOS from USB drive.
2. Connect laptop to Archos with USB cable & copy or drag files from laptop to Archos

Note: You will then need a reader / Office Suite/ or other app to view the sermon files. I assume the files are .doc files. Excellent app for this is Docs to Go.

How to copy your commercial DVDs to the ARCHOS 7


With an 800x480 pixel-wide resolution and a 7" TFT LCD screen, the ARCHOS 7 can absolutely provide users with the best cinema experience on the go. You can watch your movies in full width, which will give you the same viewing comfort as a TV in your living room. Your video watching experience on the go will never look so good.
Because of the excellent cinema experience, and its huge capacity - both 160G and 320G versions are having enough room to store movies, more and more users would like to copy their DVD collections to the handheld device. To copy a commercial DVD to the ARCHOS 7, you need a program called Pavtube DVD Ripper to rip it into ARCHOS 7 compatible file formats, like AVI, MPEG4, AVI video, and WMA, AAC, WAV audio. The following paragraphs will detail the steps of how to rip DVDs for playback on ARCHOS 7, if you are searching for such a solution, just read on it to get what you need.
First of all, you can download Pavtube DVD Ripper here.

Step 1: Load DVD files
Click "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" or "IFO/ISO" to import DVD files to this program. This utility allows users selecting their needed chapters to convert, and you can right click on a title, and then do selections on the popup window, like "Uncheck All", "Show Chapters", etc. By the way, usually, the one with the longest duration time is the main movie, so just tick off this one would be OK.
Step 2: Select output format for ARCHOS 7
Click on the pull down menu of "Format", and then all the format profiles will be listed out as below, just select "Archos" firstly, and then choose a format for ARCHOS 7, here I select "Archos 5/7 WMV Video (*.wmv) for instance.
Step 3: Set advanced settings
Click "Settings" button, then you are able to adjust video and audio parameters like codec, bit rate, aspect ration, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channel in the following interface. Basically, the default settings can ensure the output quality to be good, so, if you do not have special requirements, there is no need to change the settings.

Step 4: Click "Convert" button to start DVD ripping
Once your DVD is ripped, you can find out the output files via clicking on "Open" button, and then drag the file over to your ARCHOS 7 for playback.

How to fit an unfitted file on windows dvd maker


The Windows DVD Maker can store approximately 150 minutes of video on a single-layer DVD and approximately 300 minutes on a dual-layer DVD. An entire season will be well over either of those limits. You can try to shorten each episode by removing commercials with Windows Movie Maker first. This should make each episode somewhere between 45 and 50 minutes in length. Then you can try to fit as many as possible onto each DVD (you will still require multiple DVDs for this) while keeping it under the 150 or 300 minute limit.

Try the steps below:

2. Connect 605 to PC using USB wire and find the Driver named "a605" or similar words
3. Copy a firmware to the ROOT directory on the driver mentioned above
4. Keep the USB connected and select "OK" on 605
5. Re-calibrate the screen under Display menu on 605.

Hope Everything is ok.

Just a little FYI: hotlyq's solution works just fine, but the firmware file needs to be name exactly as it is downloaded. I downloaded both OSv2.1.0.4 and OSv2.0.1.0 firmwares to the same folder on my PC. Obviously enough I had to give them different names on the disk, I tried both and neither worked. It turns out the recovery system will not use any firmware unless it is named "firmware_a605f.aos". So if you're like me, copy the firmware over to the root of the USB-drive and then rename to firmware_a605f.aos.

Can't link my archos to my laptop


1. Copy all factory installed files from the Archos on to your PC hard drive or write a CD / DVD.
2. Download the latest software from www.Archos.com and keep a copy safe (not on the Archos!) … there was a new version last week by the way …1.5.12
3. If you record any films, music, or TV that you want to keep forever then don’t keep them on the Archos!
4. Factory installed samples (photos & films), wallpaper, etc are available for download from FTP://support.archos.com
5. If you need to format the drive but it won’t talk to the PC through the normal USB, try plugging a flash memory card (the bigger the better) into the other (left hand) USB socket and copy stuff onto it.
6. Avoid changing back & forward between ‘hard drive’ and ‘windows device’ … not sure if this was the cause of the problem but you never know!
7.Always have mains power (not battery) when moving files around.

Archos 704 Wifi - does not play AVI file until its full lentgh


I had the same issue.
The size of the AVI cannot exceed 1gb or the end of the movie will never play.

I had a movie that was 1,7gb. 2 hrs and 15 seconds.
The Archos recognized this as a 1.7gb file and 2:00:15 long.
As soon as the movie started, the time line bar at the bottom of the screen went from 2:00:15 to 1:10:25. Basically, it cut off the last 50 minutes of the movie.

I simply divide the movie into 1gb chunks.

I decrypt the DVD to the computer
Use Nero Recode to convert it to and MP4. Divide the movie into 1gb chunks and Maximize the Volume.
Use SUPER to convert it to an AVI / MPEG-4 / MP3.
Copy this to the Video folder of the Archos.

This is simply something that Archos does not want to admit is an issue. They want you to purchase the Cinema plugin.
