Hi all, I hope everyone had a happy Christmas or whatever feast they follow. Question 1. How can I download Microsoft Media Player 10 to my Archos. Reason. In their package blurb Archos refers to 10 as enabling you to watch video files etc. from microsoft. On my Archos I have a file which is titled Media player 9. However when I try to open this a message states "File not recognised" so what is it doing there in the first place. I presume perhaps wrongly that this was a preloaded file with the package. Archos are a little scant with their explanations. Another file which baffles me is titled "Asian Fonts" but again when I try to open it "File not recognised " pops up. Can any one help please? perhaps I am missing something very obvious because I am a technoid`. Regds to all, jc. unsure.gif

Hi there, Archos provides various 3rd party softwares. For my AV500 (not too sure for 700) on the start screen goto Browser then Data and installation softwares. I guess the software there are what you mentioned. Those are provided for you to install into your PC not on Archos.


Extracts from PDF manual for Asian Fonts

2.5 Foreign Character Sets You have the option of displaying file names, folder names, and music tags in various character sets (ex: Korean, Japanese, Simplifi ed Chinese, etc.). You can find the language files CodePage_name.4FZ in the font folder under /Data/Foreign Fonts on the AV 500 hard drive or on the ARCHOS™ website under the heading Software. If, for example, you would like to have the Korean language display, then you would copy the file CP949.4FZ into the folder /system on the AV 500 and shut down and restart the AV 500. File names, folder names, and music tags written using the Microsoft® codepage for the language will now be displayed in that character set. Only one .4FZ can be used at a time, thus you should only put one .4FZ file into the /system folder. When an .4FZ language file is used, the interface language will be set to English.


Cheers
