    I have an archos gmini 402, but I've noticed it's fussyness of filetypes of videos, I have a video in AVI, and when ever I syncronise it to the gmini, It seems to go o n, but then says ' Cannot play file'
    How can i fix this?
    I've tried the divX repair thing, but to no avail.
    And the only other things I can find I must pay for.

    well it needs to be MP4 format, not AVI, you need a converter, hopefully your player wont be too picky and only take a special kind of MP4 convert size, pixel and other stuff, if you load the video into ITUNES and select the option format for IPOD then itunes will make it mp4, so take the mp4 vid and transfer it

    Thank you so much!
    But do you know of some software that is free?
    I tried the Itunes idea but I can't seem to import video into it =/

    I'm sure it is the same size.
    The unit is the same size as an Ipod video, only thicker.

    It really is a great mp3 player ^_^

    CloneDVDmobile has an archos setting, but the program is not free.

    Some free programs that can make mp4 files for you are Super or Xvid4PSP. Both great programs, but I personally like Xvid4PSP myself.

    Also, if you have Nero, you can check out Nero Recode. Recoding a video to "Nero Digital" will create an mp4 file.

    Nero 7 Ultra Edition (15 day free trial):

    Super (free):

    Xvid4PSP (free):
