Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Loading photos from camera

We bought the Archos 30GB as we travel and would like to download photos from the camera to the Archos, without taking the laptop along. I have been able to load photos, music, and videos, from my computer using Windows Explorer on an XP machine. BUT, we have been unable to transfer photos direct from the camera with the USB, as we are supposed to be able to. When we get the split screen, which doesn't come up as it should automatically, it just has the same information on both sides, which is the hard drive on the 605. Call to tech support said to reformat, which we did. Now, it doesn't even have the camera come on for instruction, which it did before. Anyone have a clue....? Will be traveling soon and hope to have this operating correctly before then.

Another call to the US Tech support, different technican, and the problem was solved. We did not have the docking station plugged into an electrical outlet. We had the Archos in the docking station, and turned on, but it needs the extra power apparently from the AC. Problem solved! Was able to download photos direct from the camera to the Archos with the USB.

Archos 405


Hi fiona

I had the same problem as the archos web site is not the easiest to navigate.Have you actualy registered the product yet ?if so once logged in add your device as a product,on my products click on the picture of the 405 and that will take you to the screen for downloading archoslink (software to install the tv guide) and to the subscription page for down loading the tv guide.

How ever i have done all this and although i can download the guide i cannot sync it to my 405 so still unable to record off tv....Email gone to archos so fingers crossed....

Archos604


If the camera accessory is not functioning correctly you may need to check a few things before considering a return of the camera unit. First, read the included documentation for the Archos 604 and the camera accessory and make sure they are compatible. If you are talking about a digital camera that you take photos with, you need the DVR Docking Station, or the Traveling A/V Docking Station for camera/usb connectivity. Both of these accessories are available at Archos.com. I suggest that if you want your problem answered better, you need to be more detailed in explaining it, and have more details as to what difficulties you're having.
