Archos Av420 Sync Issue!!!

I'm using mac osx and i'm trying to get an avi to play in sync on my archos. it plays perfectly on my computer but the audio is completely out of sync. If someone could point me in the right direction it would be very very helpful.

Welcome to the forums,

I use an Archos Gmini with XP so if its a OS issue i cant really help much.
Have you used the prog supplied by Archos that translates movie files into avi's that are the correct size and frame rate for the archos?
I tried to rip several movies before I got this right.
I've also found that some programs are far less reliable than others at syncronising the audio track to the vid when encoding.


To create an mpeg or avi file, then use the supplied archos tool that should be on the Hdd of the archos or can be found on their website.

Hope that helps. :hiya:

i too was having this problem, but seemed to have solved it
i am using xp os as well, i use dvd decrypter to get the vob files from a dvd then use dr divx (found at to convert vob files into avi file.
one thing to do is when in settings of dr divx load in vob files then goto advanced settings and change audio from vbr to cbr this seems to make a difference with sync problems press encode wait a couple of hours and you shouls have an avi file that will be in sync when loaded into your archos.
hope this helps
