Problems when i sync my archos with media player

Whenever I sync my archos 605 wifi with media player (wmp 11 - the one recommended by archos) it rearranged all of the song names in my wmp library - each song had the wrong song title on it. I eventually had to delete my library and now all of my music is on the archos and not backed up. I'm afraid to sync it again incase it happens again.

    I am having problems with my Archos 605 wifi. I find a wifi hot-spot, connect to it, but when I need to type my log-in, and password information the keyboard comes up, but the web-page reloads to accommodate the keyboard. It does not allow me enough time to type my information before the keyboard disappears on it's own. I'm very frustrated since I bought the Archos 605 wifi to be able to connect wifi. Please help!!

Sounds familiar, I did that a few years ago, then it seemed that it formatted my whole mp3, then copied what i wanted. So if I wanted to sync 1 song, that was all on my mp3 after the sync...
That's the last time I used sync, bad memories.
I now copy manually from the PC to my Archos. Then you can control the order of the mapsand the maps you add. If you sych, WMP puts every map in the library in the Arhos music folder.
I just don't get the point of synchronising...

Syncing my Windows Media Player playlist over to a 605


PROBLEM SOLVED!

Go to the Archos website and type in your model number - my case 605 WiFi - and it shows you a list of firmware downloads. Just click to download the latest firmware update which you should save in your desktop - it's about 45Mb-. Once te download is complete open My Computer on your PC and click on teh Archos icon which takes you to internal hard drive icon, click on this icon and paste the update (aos) file from your desktop into this level of teh Archos - Don't paste it into any of the folders as it wont work!

When you disconnect your Archos from your PC it will display that it has found an update and would you like to install it, click on Yes and Voila! WMP playlist will now sync properly to the Archos!

Hope this helps you teh way it helped me.

Cheers

Archos 605 wi /fi only puts music on hard drive


A couple things to note. First.
Make sure the files are the right format.
second, make sure they are in the music folder.
third... sometimes it won't read them. you can still play them here's how:

Go on your archos go to music, than at the bottom click on hard drive.... you can play everything there.... i recommend not synching it... but dragging and dropping them in by hand... i like doing things basic...

Cannot connect UPnP


Hi, No expert but how I got UPnP to work fully on Archos 605 WiFi. WMP11 found the 605 and Authorized but the 605 never listed my PC under UPnp devices. Others on www seem to find WMP tricky so I gave up, I had Nero Home UPnp & Also Roxio Media (Came with blackberry) both Served UPnP to 605, 605 could see both listed under UPnP in Video, Audio & Photos. Could play all apart from Video! (Despite being able to play direct through File/Netwrok Browser) Anyway assumed Archos problem if these two did not work proplerly with Video. In desperation tried TVersity (Others talk about it a lot). All worked immediately, Video & all. So I would try this first if your have any sort of problems.

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! ;)

Firmware upgrade results in arclibrary boot failure


I managed to overcome the problem by doing a factory reset. Unfortunately doing this initially created more problems in that on reboot the main screen appearance looked as it should but was almost inoperable. When the usb cable was connected to my pc the disc did appear on My Computer . The system folder was only 1MB. By good fortune I had copied and saved my Archos files before I carried out the factory reset. Copying the original system files ( about 20MB) back to my Archos returned normal behaviour. Further, two additional buttons appeared. One was a manual arclibrary update button and the other a USB setup button . I cannot get file transfer to operate under windows media player mode and Windows media player 11. No problem though. I use PC hard drive mode and carry out a manual arclibrary update. None of this was possible prior to the factory reset. I believe I would still be having serious problems had I not saved and restored my system files
