Subject: RE: Playing a directly from Archos disk or copied to disk hangs i n the middle - plays correct on the Recorder itself.

ok, I misunderstood you, I thought even file transfert failed (in my case,
it was easy to see with archive integrity, or even md5 signatures...). If
there is no problem to copy the file to your PC, then it's probably the file
themselves that cause the problem.
 
What player do you use on you PC ? I've seen windows media player crashing
on some mp3, but winamp (2 and 5) had no problem with the same files.
Trying to fix the MP3 using one of the tool mentioned on the RockBox website
may help.
 
Hope it helps, because I lack of ideas for your problem..

Why then can I transfer lots of MP3 files to Archos without problems? I
don't believe it's the cable.

 

Anybody else has a clue maybe?

 

I can play all MP3 files directly on my archos but they hang somewhere (for
example after 30 minutes) no matter if I copy the file to my PC or hear it
directly being connected by USB 2.0 to the Archos.

 

I am desperate. This means I have to extract my harddisk and connect it
externally to get the files ...?

 

Could the USB part of the Archos be erroneous.

 

Rockbox runs perfectly.

 

What can I do?

... not sure, but I had a somewhat similar problem using an USB key on my
personal PC (nForce2 chipset), files were randomly corrupted when copied
from or to the key...

The solution was to use shielded (ie. good quality) cables to connect my usb
front panel instead of the ultra-thin wires provided.

 

Good luck

Nicolas

Hi!

 

ARCHOS Recorder 20

Rockbox 2.1

 

I can play a 100 MB record directly on my Archos.

Copying it to disk or trying to hear the MP3 over USB disc access the
playing hangs after about 30 minutes.

I have several files where this happens.

Roundabout half of the files is ok, the rest hangs after starting to play
ok.

 

I already did a chkdsk of the disk - no problems found.

Loading the MP3 in Audacity I see the file stops showing MP3 frames
somewhere in the middle.

 

I am not therefore not able to hear the copied files on my PC.

What could it be?

 

Rainer
