Re: Downlaoding movies

Assume you're able to download the dvd to your computer, you still need the Archos cinema plugin to watch the movie (vob files). I usually convert the vob files to avi before transfer to the 604 since avi files are much smaller. I purchased the plugin because a lot of movies have AC3 audio and it won't play without it.

Re: Downlaoding movies

Once you have downloaded the file to your PC simply connect your archos to your pc using USB cable provided, select PC hard drive mode, and simply copy or drag and drop from one destination to the other. Your Archos usually appears as J:Archos604WiFi if you have a built in card reader if not it may appear as an earlier letter in the alphabet.

screw that software. When you plug in the archos the archos asks what your doing with it. Say Hard drive mode and then you can drag and drop and file you want onto it.

Its pretty simple put movies in the movies folder and mp3s int he music folder lol.

How do I download pictures to my Archos 604 wifi

Welcome to Fixya's Community.

When you are connected to a Windows® network, you can browse the shared folders of other computers in the network, using the Archos File Browser. From the Home Screen, select the Browser icon. Once in the browser, select ‘Network’. Your device will search for other computers in the Windows® network and you can start browsing their shared contents.

  • Using the Archos double browser, you will be able to transfer files from a computer onto your device, or transfer files from your device onto a computer’s write-enabled shared folder.
