Archos AV700 I/O Error

My AV700 started to work very slowly when playing files and would often pause during play. I downloaded all of the files to an external hard drive and reformatted the drive. Then I defragged the files on the external hard drive. After reloaded some of the files from the external back on the Archos it worked like new again however after I got about 20gigs back onto the drive I started to get an error message. "can not copy file I/O device error" and no more files will load. The previously loaded files still work perfectly but I can't add anymore with out the error message.

Please help.

You get "can not copy file I/O device error" either when the files in the disk where you were coping from are faulty or when the disk where you are copying into has bad sectors etc.
Check first that files into external hdd had been copied properly, downloading into a pc , and eventually trying to open the files that had not been copied. If the files in external device are fine then there may be a problem with av700 drive and you may need to reformat it, or in some case to change it.
Check first if you can copy files picking them one by one, and that your av700 is not full.

    Sorry I repost here:

    You told me the formatting of av700 did not finalize well.

    That is the reason why you got IO error! that means your av700 hd may be in need to be changed.
    Best thing to do is trying format again, if you cannot format again you need to remove AV700 drive and change it.

Hi,

Offhand, I would suspect that the remaining files were somehow corrupted. Is it possible for you to verify those files using the external HD and a PC?

Either that or the format of the Archos AV700 was not that "clean" and would require a redo.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

MININ DV TO ARCHOS


Hi,

Initially, it would work better if you can provide the specific model numbers of the Sony Mini DV Cam and the Archos. Assuming all things even, most DV cameras have an analog A/V video OUT, in turn some Archos with recording capability have an analog A/V video IN. If this were the case, then it would be a matter of getting the right connectors/plugs + cable and/or adapter/interface.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Archos 700


1. Connect the archos to the TV ( using the 3 leads red/yellow/white into the TV or DVD player) and the other end of the lad, a single jack into the back of the archos mini set-top box. Plug the single jack into the "RV Output". 2. Then start playing a movie on the archos. 3. Then press down on the flat silver button on the top of the archos device. Your screen should turn black/blank. This means your sending your movie to your TV. 4. Tune your TV to find the Archos movie in the same way you would tune your TV to find another pay TV set-top box ( like cable TV or Satelite). Problem solved. 
You can use the same steps to send archos music to your steroe. Just plug the audio leads (white & red) into your stereo instead of your TV.
