How do I connect my Android Tablet to my Laptop ?


1. Connect the supplied USB cable to the ARCHOS.
2. Plug the USB end of the cable into your computer.
3. The ARCHOS will turn on and ask you if you want to connect it (Mount) or not. Choose to Mount it.
4. If you choose to just let it charge, you can always drag the top notification bar downwards to reveal the USB notification message and choose to connect.
5. The ARCHOS will appear in your computer's file browser as an external hard drive, ARCHOS (E:) for example.

CProblems onnecting Archos 700 after connecting 605 to PC


It is very possible the drivers conflict. You should try uninstalling everything to do with the one you don't want. Then install the drivers/software for the 700. Also what software are you using and what version?
Thanks,

When i connect my archos 604 to the computer my computer says Please insert disk into Removable disk (G:)?


Hi, ensure your Archos is already turned on before plugging in the USB cable and select HardDrive Mode on the pop up notice. If this dosn't work, once your Archos is ON and plugged in to your computer, press MENU on your Archos and select USB then HardDrive Mode on the next screen. Hope this helps, Shaz

Archos won't connect by USB to computers


You should keep your eye on the device after its been plugged to the PC it will give you 2 options "charge" or "usb" you ca not establish a connection without picking usb connection option on the Archos screen when it pops up. If you are doing so and problem still existed then i would recommend you to download the latest windows media player. Because it comes with new devices sync driver update.

I have an Archos 605 WiFi. I haven't yet connected my Archos docking station to the TV and HDD. Meanwhile, I thought I would copy a programme from the HDD to a DVD, then put the DVD in the computer and...


What kind of HDD do you have, do you have any type of output on it. You stated that you haven't connected the docking station to it and the TV...? The best thing to do is to connect your Archos to the Docking station. Set the docking station up correctly, with cables coming out of the HDD (if it has some sort of output) to the station and out of the station to your TV. Once you set that up, you can use the Archos as a mini DVR or VCR. Go to the REC option on the main screen of Archos, you'll have an option for Video Recorder (tab on top). If you play any source on the HDD, then all you have to do is press the Rec option on the Archos. If you already have a file on the HDD, then try just moving it over into the Archos once you connect the Docking station to your computer via USB or just use the USB cable connected to the computer with the HDD. I use the USB preference as Windows Media Device. (found under menu/settings/system). Is is basically a HDD itself. Remember the Archos will only play certain videos without the purchase of any extra plugins.
Good Luck

How long can it possibly charge for the first time?


With USB mains charger it takes approx 18 hours for the first ever charge so I would hate to be using the usb to pc to do the same.
Once this initial charge is achieved though it will charge by usb to pc as you work even though it does ask "usb connection or Charge"

Are you sure the battery is charged? If so, try detach and retach the battery. Also try to attach to your computer via the usb cable and the 604 should turn on by itself, if nothing happens you need to send back to Archos for repair.

My Archos 605 is freezing or stops responding during playback, or when recording, what should I do?
First take a look if your battery is fully charged.

You can also make a long press on the on/off button for 15 seconds; it will switch off the unit and your data will be not erased

If your device continues to stop and freeze, you have the possibility to format it from the settings menu; you can do this into settings, then select system and repair and format tools.

Before doing this, you have to save all your files on your computer
