Dear Forum, I have just purchased the Archos AV 700 mobile  DVR and find everything okay, until I transfer recorded programs from my Media Centre XP 2005 to the 700. The files transfer but Archos does not recognise the file types. I am a non-tech. person. is there anything I can do to convert the files or some software I can purchase ? Any replies please in straight forward speak. Any suggestions gratefully received. Merry Christmas all. Regds jc. UK Time 12 45 am.

First - I don't have Archos so I really don't know it's capabilities.

I do know that xp/media center records programs in a MS encoded format that limits playing to media player 10. There are 3rd party apps that can recode the programs (Nero recode and one from Sonic), but I have few details on them since I"ve given up on xp/media center and installed Suse/MythTV.

That said it may be possible to use windows media player to transfer and recode the video to the Archos (assuming the correct wmp plugin exist).

Thanks Mark i will explore> i have to admit that i am getting slightly frustrated with the XP media centre and not being that bright in those areas got hooked on the marketing material and bought a PC with it installed. It is not until you get one that you realize that there are others that can be installed. Regds jc.

Try downloading divX and passing the files through it to convert them - might work -won't hurt.
