I have just purchased the Archos 605 and would like to copy my DVD movies (purchased, not home movies) onto it. However, the DVDs appear to be encrypted. Will I be able to do this if I purchase the Cinema Plug In?.

I have a macbook with leopard and when I plugged in my 605 via proprietary USB, it immediately recognized it. On the 605's screen, you'll notice it asks if you want to connect or charge only. click connect. then the "disk" shows up on your mac's screen. then I just double-click to open the disk image and drag and drop the files that I wanted to copy. Only took about 45 minutes or so to copy my library over.
The archos will only play M-peg 4 type files unless you buy on of the plug ins, so the way round it is to crack a dvd using "dvd shrink" this will get round the copy protection then convert the cracked dvd to m-peg 4 im using "any video converter" tese programs can be downloaded free on the net. not sure if this is the easiest way but it works
Have you tried to add those files to WMP? In the directory theres an option 'add to library', then you have to select the folder where the movie is in. also Archos cant read DVD extensions, I always convert them to AVI MPEG4, but WMV has to do it well too. I never use that option, because I prefer manually copy past instead of sync. WMP has to convert automatically to WMV when synchronising.
Hope this will work! ;)
Once you have downloaded the file to your PC simply connect your archos to your pc using USB cable provided, select PC hard drive mode, and simply copy or drag and drop from one destination to the other. Your Archos usually appears as J:Archos604WiFi if you have a built in card reader if not it may appear as an earlier letter in the alphabet.
