No problem! Good luck with the cataloging! Don't let it soak up too much of your time

Archos forum / Album Artwork

Hey there

Actually the album art needs to be embedded into the mp3 file itself. I've found that the best tool the for the job is 'Tag & Rename'. You can batch the files, rename them, add the artwork in, whatever you like. I do think the Archos limits the scale or the format of the image though; I've stuck with JPGs of varying size.

Just remember that it doesn't work like Windows Media player. Just adding in a jpg in the album folder won't work (and it's also a damn ugly way to catalog an album anyway). Also - I think you'll find that if you open one of the mp3s that does show an image on the Archos, you'll find it's embedded in the file too.

Archos forum / Converting Av500 From Fat32 --> Ntfs?
« on: April 18, 2007, 06:04:01 pm »
I use my AV500 100GB to move work files around from time to time. Right now I have 4 files, which, when combined, end up taking up about 40 GB. Can I convert the AV500 to NTFS to handle these? I would hate to zip or RAR these into parts. That would be a huge pain...

Archos forum / Noob Question Regarding Charging
« on: January 15, 2007, 03:50:14 pm »
1. When I plug the AV500 into the an outlet it starts up every time. Is that normal? Can I shut it off so that it only charges but stays off?

2. How much time does a full charge take? I've never seen my battery at 100% or the CHG LED fade in and out.

Hey Archo5Novice

Thanks for the link! Excellent! I know I won't need 90% of what's there but I like to keep the factory setting handy just in case.

Can anyone help me out with my other qquestions? It would be great. Thanks!

Archos forum / Av500: Couple Of Questions
« on: December 01, 2006, 02:59:04 pm »
Hi there everyone

This is my first post here. I just got a (barely used) AV500 100GB and had a handful of questions.

1. Are there any resources for mods and plugins for this model? I can't seem to turn up anything and I've been looking a fair bit.

2. Is the Root folder supposed to have a folder called DATA in it? Mine doesn't. I thought it was supposed to for things like wallpapers, settings, etc. How can I replace that (If it's supposed to be there)?

3. Within the first 15 minutes of use I discovered that the DC & AV I/O plug is loose or broken inside. It causes the connection to break between the TV or the charger unless I really fiddle with it. Is this repairable? How responsive is Archos for an RMA and repair?

Any help would great. Thanks!
