Question about Archos 2 Vision MP3 Player

1 Answer

Cannot register product and it will not show player in media play

I have just bought the archos 2 vision and i tried to register it on line and it will not accept the following serial number on the back Y1094203879 is this the right number.
I also cannot get the player to show in windows media player (in connect a device) when i want to sync music to the player.
I have windows OS vista but if i use windows XP i can sync in windows media player because it detects the mp3 player.
I also cannot copy and paste because it comes up on the player as a corrupt file.
Has the windows OS got anything to do with it

Many thanks

Archos 20d vision mp3 player 4gb can put music from windows media on [cd] to mp3 but it as a question mark and there is no sound have ripped and synced and other music wont play continuess


Give up mate,
This MP3 player is total garbage, many MP3 just wont play and the Archos Service can\'t help.
Archos does not provide an firmware update for this device, even if is poorly working.
So, this product is useless as the Archos service.
Don\'t buy any Archos products or you will regret.

My archos vision 1 is not recognised by computer


Hi, archos vision 1 player not recognized by the computer

This may be caused by one of the following:
1. Minimum system requirements were not met.
2. Corrupted drivers.
3. Computer restrictions.
4. Power issue.

To resolve this issue, try the following solutions:

SOLUTION 1 - For brand new player or first time connecting to this computer.

For Windows XP users: verify the following operating system requirements are met.
- Windows XP SP2 or higher
- Windows Media Player 10 or higher

Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.

For Windows Vista users: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player.
- Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211.
- Run the hotfix.

For MAC users, see archos vision 1 player not recognized by a MAC OS

NOTE: If you are trying to connect to a Computer at work that is part of a network, there may be user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware or stop any program installations. You may need to check with your IT administrator to see if this is causing the problem.



SOLUTION 2 - Refresh the driver

STEP 1 - Connect the archos vision 1 player to the PC
The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full.
- If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub.
- If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.

If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.

2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.

NOTE: archos vision 1 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are archos vision 1 Connect and archos vision 1 Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for archos vision 1 Players when used with Windows OS.

The archos vision 1 player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as:
1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)
2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.


STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.

NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


Have a nice day....

I tried putting videos with all different file formats onto my Archos 3 vision -- mp4, wmv, avi... But each time I input it, and try to play it, a 'File Format Error' Sign pops up and it won't play... I...


Well, one thing u need to know is that Archos 3 vision cant support all file formats and codecs. U need to transcode video files to compatible format with Archos 3 vision. I recommend u Pavtube Video Converter(http://www.pavtube.com/video_converter/) which can transcode between any video files, and it still offers u foramt presets for Archos.
