It only contains a laptop hard drive, so buy a new one remove all screws from either side of your av700 and replace it, dont worry cause once you open your av700 the hard drive is really simple to swap,then fire it up and format the drive you can download upgraded software from www.archos.com

How can I read itune library in archos 101


Hey! To sync your Archos to your iTunes library you need 2 things: The doubleTwist app on your Archos, which you can easily find in the Market. And you also need the doubleTwist client on your computer, there are versions for both Mac and Windows, you can find it here. After you download the app to the pc and android, start the client on your computer and it will guide you through all the steps, you pick the playlists/songs/artists or whatever you want to sync to the Archos and it will sync it to the device next time you connect it! I hope this answered your question!

My P.C is not fully recognising my Archos AV500 and is asking to format it.


The hard drive in the Archos may have become corrupted. A format will most likely fix the issue but the media on the drive will be erased.

I have a Archos 605 wifi, and when trying to save a web page to favorites the Archos shuts down and then restarts.


That's a memory error, I can almost guarantee it's an application compatibility issue or corrupted profile settings.You can try reinstalling the browser application, backing up and restoring the system, or reinstalling the system entirely and copy back you contacts, documents, etc.

Archos av500 hard drive replacement


Downgrade firmware from 1.5.12 to 1.3.12 and then replace the hard drive, it should work. It does not work with firmware versions superior to 1.3.12. If you have 1.5.13 you can downgrade to 1.5.12 using the normal archos update procedure (yes, from 1.5.13 to 1.5.12 you can freely donwgrade using standard offical method). You can find 1.5.12 firmware on the official archos download page. If you need the 1.3.12 version (not available at archos website) it can be retrieved there: http://www.opendrivers.com/freedownload/232939/archos-av500-portable-dvr-firmware-1.3.12-download.html

It cant turn on


Just some suggestions. I have had my Q9m since September 07. If you reboot the phone nightly (take battery out put back) and allow to boot up again it help by resetting the RAM. Also under System Tools>Task Manager>Menu>Kill All - it seems that every program you use on the Q it keeps running which causes the Q to slow down and freeze. I know doing these things can be a pain however my Q has been running with zero issues since September. I also have the origional Q in black for over 16 months and I wouldnt trade either phone for anything on the market currently. As far as the screen sticking on the Verizon Logo...try taking battery out, power on and as soon as logo appears pull battery out quick and replace...you may need to do this a few times but it will bypass what ever is causing this boot up error. Windows Mobile 6 certainly isnt perfect. Hope these suggestions help.

Treo 700


Mine did the same thing also would not charge. I called Verizon data center and they did not even go through a re-set, just sent me a new phone. It is a common problem with hardware.

Need solution for error message


Some one has deleted everything except the 'index' in C:\system\Mail folder on you phone thats why you can't open and/or create a messages. The only thing you can do about it now is to hard-reset your phone to factory settings.If you need further assistance feel free to post your comments..
