Top 20 Archos Internet Media Tablet MP3 Player Questions & Answers

The only site I could find that didn't give a virus warning was for Archos in French.

I tried to translate using,15700022,15700105,15700124,15700149,15700168,15700201&usg=ALkJrhjLu8G2hLG-kIw4rakiyPVOOsuahg

Why is my tablet not detected by my PC? Your tablet works like a computer, hence the fact that it is not recognized by your computer.
Indeed, it is not detected and will not be connected as an external device.
To transfer files from your computer to the tablet or vice versa, use the micro-SD slot to insert a memory card or share the files in a network.
For more information on file sharing, please consult Windows® Support .

So, it is saying to either use a micro-SD memory card, or network the tablet to share files.

Plug the laptop in with the AC adapter before you charge the tablet. When a laptop is on battery power, it may deliver less current to the USB ports. Or, the tablet might have a bad battery.

Is it archos 5 or archos 5 IT ?
For archos 5 IT is already upgrade to 2.2 as far as I know.
For archos 5 I don't think there is one and with archos they don't bother doing anymore upgrades for older models.

Found this for the archos 5 IT.

it is an android tablet so all android info would relate to it.
you can download games from a couple sources, you could download the amazon app store, (google it from the tablet) there are also a number of other app stores (AppBrain is another).
If you want the official android app store youre going to have to work a little for it.
these are the step by step instructions of how to install it
another option is to look up any game (ex. angry birds) in google + .apk
"angry birds .apk" download one from the tablet and open it then hit install.
you could then google various other games that way.

Disassembling Archos will void device's manufacture warranty. You should not do it yourself. There is some parts are very fragile will cause a permanent damage to the device. I will not recommend for you to do it yourself.

When you put in the details of your product now, on the web-site, there is the option to transfer registration of a product to you. The product details are key and serial number which can only be obtained by physically having the unit. It's so easy now.

you can connect it via wi-fi or via bluetooth..
if you have a router near you archos will get connected with that router through wi-fi and you'll be able to go online.
if you have a 3g and bluetooth enabled phone with you pair that phone with archos via bluetooth so that archos can use phone data plan for browsing the internet.

these are the two ways by which archos will get online

Only if can do carefull to open it with the correct tool, and check on the cell for a confirmed failure before replacing. You can do but with this caution of not damaging any sensitive cirrcuits. Good luck
