Archos 605 new owner needs help


Standard Member
Hi guys, this is my first post on this forum so please be gentle, just bought myself a new 605 and am having problems syncing films to it, am currently using clone dvd to transfer dvds to window media format, once that is done i can see it in my media file library, but heres where the problem is, i then drag the file over to the sync list and start the sync and it syncs to about 8% then stopped and says error with sync, have you guys any idea what maybe causing the problem and also give me some hints on what i am doing wrong
many thanks in advance

Personally I'd use DIVX (avi) format for the video then just drag and drop the files to put them over to the 605.

The media player sync can be fussy about file formats.

I use DVD Decrypter to rip my DVDs to my hard drive. I then use Super C to convert them to avi files. Don't use Windows Media Player, use copy and paste in Windows Explorer. Works a treat.

Have added the Super C settings I use which may be helpful to some.
