    Im sure it has been asked many times however i cant find any threads on this. If i record something onto my Archos via the DVR Station, when downloaded to the PC the video will not play. How can one get around this annoying little problem?

    If i was then to transfer the file to mem stick and put in PSP would it work on that?

    Thanks

    You dont have a MP4 codec installed to be able to play it back,it wont work on the PSP without conversion either.
    This should work

    I had the same problem on my Mac.

    The reason the dvr files will not play is because they are XVID files that your PC does not support.

    Try looking for a XVID player for Windows or a plugin for WMP.

    I installed MPlayer on my Mac (not sure if there is an equivalent for windows) and I can now watch all that I have recorded.

    Hope this helps
