As long as you replace the hard drive with the same exact one, it should be possible. You can contact the manufacturer with the below options and they can assist you in getting a new drive.

yes it is compatible but the remote wont work for Archos 504. also, u'll require saddle for 504(usually comes as part of package). dont try to put your archos on the dock without a saddle.

if you are using an Archos cable, when you plug in to the tv, you should switch to the video 1 or line in source, probably using your tv remote labeled "input"

I have put plenty of DVDs onto my Archos, but I use the optional cradle which connect to the TV as well as DVD players. You simply connect the DVD player onto it and play your dvd, which switching on the Recorder function on your unit.

Alternatively, can you convert the DVD onto your PC and then transfer onto the Archos in normal fashion, or is this what you are saying you tried to do already?

its a protected movie and 504 wont play them out to the tv.

ARchos is macrovision compliant to prevent copying copyright programs. I think in some cases the recordings are encoded as such and will not play on your tv in those cases. I would fire off a letter to Archos technical support archos.com) and check with them on this.

please check what is your firmware version, the latest one is 1.6.23. If it is lower please upodate it by downloading the file from archos website. Maybe it would help

try resetting it via the button under the battery cover next to the hard drive, and if not, connect it to your pc, and format it as quick as poss.

Simply said you require a DVR station or Audio/Video travel cable. On the DVR just simply plug in your composite cable from OUT the satellite/cable box or whichever source your recording from to IN on the DVR station. The a/v travel cable is a little easier to hook up. Then just select the VideoCorder icon.
