You can use a disc shaped connector hub for AV in/out connections, but no travel AV in/out. That is a separate accessory. So, if you want to see your video on a separate TV, bring the big hub, or spring for a separate set of travel connectors.
There is little documentation regarding the reset. However there is one in the Archos 504. If you take the battery off and look at the connecting Pins of the battery of the main unit. You will see a small Gold Button (looks like the circuit). This is the main reset button. If you Press it all will be good. You will not loose anything unless you have a Main File corrept but at least you will get function back so you can fix the firm ware.
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!) â€¦ there was a new version last week by the way â€¦1.5.12 3. If you record any films, music, or TV that you want to keep forever then donâ€™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 wonâ€™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 â€˜hard driveâ€™ and â€˜windows deviceâ€™ â€¦ 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.
Yes i know syncing is the easiest way to hook up archos to download files have you tried manually like drop & drag the files into the video folders? Some video formats work even in the new archos series some don't & you have to buy plugins. I personally didn't like using windows media player it reminds me too much of itunes Baszman
The same thing happens to me. I've noticed that it is on the dvds and vhs recordings (ie, copy protected) that this happens. The other files (downloaded from internet, tv, etc) play fine. I think it has something to do with copy-protection that allows files to be saved to device, but not transmitted out. This allows you to save and view your commercial recordings on the Archos, but not let the program to be sent to a recording device such as a dvd recorder.
