Hello forum members I hope you can help as this is driving me mad! I bought my young son a new Archos 5 - he has a number of TV shows recorded off the TV onto DVD and I put a couple on my computer (Vista) and converted them to AVI files. (Can't recall why I converted them to AVI - I have been trying to solve this for so long now). Anyway, although the video aspect plays there is no sound. I have spent over many many hours researching this on the internet and downloading and then discarding various programs to try and get the sound working. I have phoned Archos support and they are totally useless. They told me to convert the file to a WMV file and that should work - but it did not. I am not a techie and have no clue about codecs etc... but I think it is a codec problem? I stupidly made the mistake of thinking he could watch some of his favourite TV shows on the Archos when he goes into hospital soon for a lengthy stay. Can anyone help? Simple answers only please as I am not a techie - just a frustrated mum who is about to give up! Thank you.
