Anyone have an Archos 704 wifi?

I am having a bitch of a time loading the cinema pack codec to watch mpeg files. This should be as easy as a drag and drop operation. But, it's not. I can't get the codec recognized by the device. Technical support is absolutely fucking worthless.

I'm on hold with them for the second time, in a queue with only me waiting. 15 minutes and counting. WTF?

This was a gift, and I'm considering taking it back and disputing the charges on my CC for the codec just because of this bullshit support.

Figured it out. You have to have the damned thing plugged into the wall when you do the update. Doesn't say that anywhere. Ridiculous.

I thought about buying one of those. Please let us know how it works out when you get it setup.

So far it seems pretty cool. I ripped one DVD, but was having audio sync issues on it. I think that's more about my machine, not the device. I'm using this in lieu of a laptop while I'm on my honeymoon. Allow me to check email at wi-fi spots and upload my digital pictures.
