Question about Archos 104 MP3 Player

Open Question

Mp3 playback distortion

I've added many audio books to my Archos. On two occasions, I've gotten a strange distortion, almost as if the data is partially scrambled. There are metallic chirps and squeaks. In one audio book, the playback was undecipherable. In the other, I could understand it, but the distortion would persist on couple of words. The mp3s in question both play clearly and without problem on my pc with Windows Media Player. I've deleted and reloaded the files onto the Archos repeatedly with no relief. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What format did you rip it to? Is it supported by the player. Try converting the files to mp3 then adding them.

SOURCE: doenlaoding dvd to windows media player then on to Archos

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! ;)

I have the above model camcorder ,the playback on my laptop with windows vista is terribly poor jumping all the time/distorted with jvc software provided or on windows media player it plays but audio is...


Are you playing the video directly form the hard disk in the camcorder or are you transferring the file to the laptop first? Reading high volumes of data via USB is slow and the PC may not be able to read the data fast enough from the camcorder. Try copying the video to the laptop first, then play it back.

Obviously, the ARCHOS 7 supported file formats are limited, if you want to watch you various video files and unprotected DVDs on it successfully, format conversion is necessary. By now, Pavtube Video Converter would be a good assistant for you. It is able to help you convert videos from DVs or camcorders (JVC, Panasonic, Cannon, Sony, etc.), TiVo (*.tivo), DVDs (*.vob), YouTube (*.flv, *.f4v), *.mts, *.m2ts, *.mkv, etc. to ARCHOS 7 compatible format. You can look through its step by step guide as below.

Step 1: Run Pavtube Video Converter, and click "Add" button to load video files to it
Step 2: Select output format for ARCHOS 7
Click on the pull down menu of "Format" firstly, and then select "Archos", after that, all the profiles for Archos will be listed out, here I choose "Archos 5/7 WMV Video (*.wmv) for example.
Step 3: Specify destination folder
Click on the folder icon at the end of "Output" to specify where to locate the output files.
Step 4: Click on "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters
Actually, the default settings can basically satisfy your ARCHOS 7, but if you want to have your own changes, you can adjust all the items like codec, aspect ratio, frame rate, sample rate, bit rate, and audio channel in the following window:
Step 5: Click "Convert" button to start conversion
Once conversion is finished, the output files can be found out via clicking on "Open" button with ease. Afterwards, just enjoy them on your ARCHOS 7 freely.

Lost my manul for archos jukebox recorder 20 mp3 player/recorder & data storage


Go to the RockBox software site. RockBox is provided freely by an end-user created and supported group and is a wonderfully evolved software replacement for quite a few portable music-playing machines. Your Archos Jukebox recorder is long out of warranty, so there's NO downside in updating it by installing the most current version of RockBox. That will greatly extend the capabilities of your machine.

Then download the RockBox user Manual! That will be your new Archos JukeBox Recorder User Manual. You'll be able to select what you hear by one of two control strategies: File names or by Playlists. You'll be able to adjust playback sound in new and more powerful ways than just using the equalizer. Also it will allow you to control playback "pitch" or speed, so you can hear lectures or books at a higher playback speed. Human retention actually improves when playback speed is increased some. You can print out the RockBox pdf. format manual if you'd like or you can study it on line. Lots of choices.

Good luck with your "obsolete" Archos JukeBox. I actually prefer the earlier models which were powered by four rechargeable AA cells rather than those with the replaceable lithium battery. I know someone who ran one of these continually for more than a year to provide background music, plugged into a wall-wart charger and his sound system. Durable!

Download Magic Video Converter from www.isohunt.com and change the video to WMP Standard 8. You don't need 1.25 GB vids for the archos, it's too high a quality for such a small screen.
