Question about Archos Gmini XS 202s (20 GB) MP3 Player
When I try to download songs I've purchased from MSN music, on to the player it keeps coming up with an error that because my PC can't access the internal clock, it can't transfer the songs. I've set windows media player to always check the clock on portabel media storage and there's no option on the player to restrict devices from accessing thwe internal clock. Any idea's on how to fix this??
Sounds familiar, I did that a few years ago, then it seemed that it formatted my whole mp3, then copied what i wanted. So if I wanted to sync 1 song, that was all on my mp3 after the sync...
That's the last time I used sync, bad memories.
I now copy manually from the PC to my Archos. Then you can control the order of the mapsand the maps you add. If you sych, WMP puts every map in the library in the Arhos music folder.
I just don't get the point of synchronising...

Go to the Archos website and type in your model number - my case 605 WiFi - and it shows you a list of firmware downloads. Just click to download the latest firmware update which you should save in your desktop - it's about 45Mb-. Once te download is complete open My Computer on your PC and click on teh Archos icon which takes you to internal hard drive icon, click on this icon and paste the update (aos) file from your desktop into this level of teh Archos - Don't paste it into any of the folders as it wont work!
When you disconnect your Archos from your PC it will display that it has found an update and would you like to install it, click on Yes and Voila! WMP playlist will now sync properly to the Archos!
Hope this helps you teh way it helped me.

Thanks and credit to eyez12 - the 2nd option below worked for me
try going to menu, settings, system, and then clicking the update ARCLibrary button, that was all it took for me.
if that doesn't work then go to repair and formatting tools and click "clear temp system files and cache"

First I would suggest swapping them with 3 other positions. And see if they play there. If they play there and the cd's that you had in other positions don't play in the slots where the original ones were, you will know that there is a problem with the player and not the cd's. I understand that they play on media player. But may not play in the Archos
