If your MP3 files on your Mac don't end with ".mp3"
you must add it to the end of the filename when you
transfer them to your Archos. Unlike the Mac, the
Archos (and MS Windows & other OSs) need the ".mp3" at
the end of the filename to know it is an MP3 file. If
you do that, the files should be visible to the

To be able to see the ajbrec.ajz file, you need to
change the "Show Files" option:

  General Settings
    File View
      Show Files

Change the setting to "Supported" or "All" and press
