How do I enable the Picture thumbnails on the 605?

I have a brand new 605 and try to get the hang of it. After loading some pictures, the thumbnails disappeared. All is left are grey squares. The picture appears when I click on the grey squares, but no thumbnails are showing not even the demo pictures.

Re: How do I enable the Picture thumbnails on the 605?

I had the same problem this morning - the same grey boxes until you open the individual photos (all this within 24hrs out of the box) but it has now gone away now that i have recharged the unit. I presume it is a power saving function - makes sense really. Just a shame there was nothing in the manual to warn you of this feature.

Hope that helps.

I have bought a brand new ipod touch, installed itunes and my ipod will not load. Just has a picture of the usb line and the itunes signal. Tried reistalling and restarting computer. Help!

This picture means you need to sync the new ipod with your computer.  Meaning they got to get close and acquainted. 
Restart your computer.  Open up itunes and wait for it to load.  Then take the USB sync cord and connect one end to the ipod and the other end to the USB port on your computer.  Click set up new ipod and type in a name you want to use.  Follow the on screen instructions and don't disconnect the ipod until your computer says its done and its safe to disconnect.

Archos 605 wifi, simple can't to the net via my router... WEP settings ok, it can find the router but can't connect... Help

Check you router configuration

do you have mac filters enabled.
Check the signal
The device only supports wireless g (check your network is enabled for wireless g) Device is not backwards compatible and does not support anything other than band G
Change the wireless channel- sometimes there maybe a lot network traffic. Remember because its wireless your traffic could be conflicting with other wireless traffic.
Try pinging router and reseting

No longer a tv picture to record on my 605 wifi passthrough device

have been onto technical support today with video recording problems and they have suggested that 1.7.13 may not be the best of firmware platforms, and that i install 1.7.06. Might be worth checking with them to see if you get similar advice.
