I too, am having trouble with the little units, (their little pocket video players with 3-1/2 to 4 inch screens, we have both.. 30 and 40 gigs of hard drive). I can put an analog signal like a TV output and it, (the Archos), records it perfectly. I have yet to figure out a way to go file to file from the computer to the Archos. This is what the little book that comes with the little sucker says under video playback:
"MPEG-4 SP with stereo sound. Near DVD Quality up to 720 X 480 @ 30f/s (NTSC) 720X576 @ 25f/s (PAL), AI format. WMV9," (add exponent 3 to 9 on WMV9 whateverthatmeans). It goes on to say, "(including protected files) up to 352X268 @ 30 f/s and 800 KBit/s."
Anybody have a solution the these???
