Does the MP3 player charge when it is plugged into the system?
if not then you may need a different USB lead, if it DOES charge, it may be the case that the device is formatted in a way that prevents computers (or playstations etc.) accessing music without certain software. my personal solution for this was to put all of your music from your computer onto a USB stick and copy it over to the PS3. You can copy music from iTunes by selecting tracks and pressing CTRL+C, I believe the same applies in windows media player

First copy the files from the DVD to the computer. Insert DVd, and drag files to desktop. then run the files through the Archos media converter. A typical DVD is about 700MB, so you won't be able to fit many on there.

To register an Archos product, go to the Archos web site at http://www.archos.com
Under the "SUPPORT & ACCOUNT" tab at the top of the page, select "Register a product."

Howdy, a bit of a late answer, but go into music (or go into files, then choose the folder full of music you want to play)

Then when a song is playing, hold the M button for a while (can take anything up to 15 seconds) then you will see a menu come up. First option should be "Repeat M" (I assume M=mode) anyway, select that and scroll along with the + button until you get to "All Rand"

Select that and your away

Take the battery off, and to the left of the battery connetion tabs is a small gold button, push and hold for 10 seconds. It should start up after doing this.

There's only a small operation guide available for the Archos 3 Vision:

When exploring the player in My Computer on the PC, before disconnecting always
go through the icon "safely remove hardware'' in the right corner on the computer's screen below.

For transfers Window Media Player 11 can be used.
More information about using WMP11 see:

Is the battery dead when you connected it? When you connect the MP3 player on the USB port, do you get any light signals etc? Try moving it into another USB port.

Hi,when this happens,please plug USB charger and run the Archos..if it runs immediately the HD and system is okay but the battery should be the faulty element.So just replace the battery.That was the case for my Archos 604 and than after battery replacement it was corrected.

Wow - there are SOOOO many place to get music from these days.
Simply Google MP3 - and a bevvy of sites will pop up.
and the list goes on....

As far as getting them on the player itself... Once plugged into your PC via USB cable - it is a matter of either using the software included with your MP3 unit, or Opening My Computer... and it will show up as a removeable drive.

Simply drag the songs you want from your music folder onto the removeable drive.

Another option is to right click on the song, and SEND TO removeable drive.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Thanks for using FixYa. Try and reset your archos 704 by pressing the power ON/OFF button for more than 15 seconds. You can also use the master reset function by removing the battery & then press the master reset button.

Note: Resetting your Archos will not erase any data from your device.

Also try Recovery mode-- Press the button to turn on your device. Immediately press and hold the until the Recovery mode screen appears.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

. The unit occasionally freezes, and u have to unplug and press and hold the x button for 15 seconds to get it to reset.
Your problem sounds like it is caused by static electricity. Are you on carpet when using the AV500? It is prone to locking up when exposed to ESD, the manual mentions this. The best thing to avoid this, as you seem to have already discovered, is to use the remote.

You should also unplug the AV500 before attempting to reset. Attempting to reset whilst the AV500 is still connected to the mains seems to cause loss of data. This happened to me, my entire hard drive was wiped.

if that doesnt solve ur problem......
you could try upgrading the firmware to see if that does anything.

First thing to do is go here. Click on Portable DVR under Select a Product Line. Now select AV500 under Select a Device. Now download the "Download AV 500 serie OS 1.3.11" You might want to look in your instruction manual to see how to update the firmware if you don't know how to do it.

Here's the update history of the firmware.

if it still doesnt solve ur problem.... its time to call archos.....
good luck and have a nice day
