    Hi everyone, can anybody help me.

    I'm considering purchasing an Archos 604. I would like to copy some of my DVDs (that I've recorded off the TV) onto the Archos 604. Does anyone know how to do this? I have a PC and Windows Media Player 10 but I'm not sure if I need any other equipment or how easy it is to do this.

    Any help would me most appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Katie

    I think you will either need to get a separate codec for the Archos to play the native DVD files or convert them to an MPEG4 file. I do the latter using a program called Pocket-DVD Studio with the DivX MPEG4 codec and you get quite small files and good quality on my AV560.

    Thanks FrankS

    I've got Power DVD 4.0. Can you let me know how you copy. Is it just click and drag or is there more to it than that.

    Thanks

    On Pocket DVD Studio you just open up the DVD in the program, set your encoding settings and press record and it goes away and encodes the file. Very simple and it lets you adjust the size, video and sound bitrate and also select which codec you want to use. If you want to use DivX you have to download that from the DivX site, but it's free.
