The ribbon cable should slide into the connector but be careful since that latch can break.
Mine broke.

It sounds to me like there's an Component A/V cable issue. Please re-check the cable connections making sure they are connected correctly. When using the docking station and Component A/V cables you must be sure the cables are connected with their corresponding colors on the back of the DVR Docking Station. Also check that the format of the recording is compatible with the "TV Standard" in the settings menu of your Archos. It will be either NTSC (USA) or PAL (Europe). Be sure to check the Video Output Settings of the Archos to be sure it is set to the same type of cables you are using- component, RGB, s-video or composite. Good luck!

Check the power pack for the DVR station and see if theres a green light still lit. I've had two power packs for the DVR station fail. This will cause the syptoms your seeing.

Connect it to the USB port of the laptiop with the cable supplie with the 604. A popup will appear on the Archos screen - select the firts option. The Archos will then be visible to your laptop as an external hard drive. You can then drag files across from the Archos

The dvr station must sit in the middle of the signal transfer from the box to the tv, so connect the Xbox to the dvr station and then connect the dvr station to the tv. You will have to enaure that the DVR station is always powered on so that the signal will pass through it. to record simply select the record option on the 604

SOunds like a problem with the connection between the dvr station and the tv. Ensure all connections are insered fully and dust free. Also ensure that you have set the output signal to PAL if using in Europe - do this via the setup menu

remove the battery and press the "reset" button - caution - you will lose all of the data on the device, but it should return to working mode

yes you can, however the battery must be inserted into the 604. Simply dock the 604, ensure the dvr is turned on and the 604 will automatically turn on and start charging.

screw that software. When you plug in the archos the archos asks what your doing with it. Say Hard drive mode and then you can drag and drop and file you want onto it.

Its pretty simple put movies in the movies folder and mp3s int he music folder lol.

I have the same problem and I do not know how to fix it. The problem with mine is that I have replace the hard drive with a new one so it does not have the original files. Does it connect through the USB connection and does the computer detect it?

Highlight the file, click menu, file management

Hi, ensure your Archos is already turned on before plugging in the USB cable and select HardDrive Mode on the pop up notice. If this dosn't work, once your Archos is ON and plugged in to your computer, press MENU on your Archos and select USB then HardDrive Mode on the next screen. Hope this helps, Shaz
