The Archos AV700 is a media player offering 40GB of storage space and a seven inch LCD screen. Users have come across several common problems, some of which you can fix by downloading and installing the latest firmware.

Unrecognisable File and Folder Names

If your AV700 stops recognising file and folder names, the hard drive index may be corrupted--perhaps due to an incorrect shutdown. Run one of Windows' disk checking utilities to fix it.

Disk Space Not Available After Deleting Files

It's possible that the AV700 isn't properly allocating free space after you delete files. Run Scandisk in Windows or Disk Utility on a Mac to correct the problem.

Video Picture and Sound Not Correctly Synced

The video file may not have been encoded properly. Hunt down a different version of the file or re-encode the video from its source (e.g., DVD) using a different program. Note that the only audio formats the AV700 supports are MP3, WMA and WAV.

Batteries Won't Hold Their Charge

If the AV700's batteries can't hold a charge, they may have been powered with an incompatible charger or simply be defective. Discharge the unit completely, charge it for four hours, then install the latest firmware.

Album Art Doesn't Display

For the AV700 to display album art, images must be embedded in the tags saved with the files. Windows Media Player and a variety of freeware tools can embed album art for you, but the image size should be less than 128 x 128 pixels to ensure compatibility.
