I got an Arnova G2 8 recently and mostly I'm pretty pleased with it.  However I was trying to access the device from Eclipse on Windows in order to test an app but the tablet isn't recognised.  

I found the Archos drivers at

      ftp://support.archos.com/../ARCHOS%20it/ADB/

but these don't work (not recognised by Windows trying to install using them after the "Found new hardware" prompt) and I couldn't find any for the Arnova G2 8.

I then raised a support ticket on the Arnovatech site about this and got the following reply "We inform you that, there is no ADB USB driver available for your device."   Hhhmmmmm

Does anyone think a driver will be released ?  Or is there a generic one around somewhere ?   If not, what is the way to get round this ?

thanks

Arnova support, one more time, they are clueless...

We have modified the ADB drivers so they support most Arnova G2 models, your 8G2 (if capacitive) should be in there.

I should also add the resistive 8bG2 DT real soon.

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the quick reply.  Unfortunately though it didn't work and I do have a capacitive touchscreen based on the documentation Frown

 

Couple of things I noticed:

1) The links on the page you pointed me to seem to be the wrong way round.  "Download adb_winusb_driver.zip on Archos server"  seems to point to your mirror,  while the "Our mirror" link points to the Archos ftp site. 

2) I had already tried the zip file from the Archos site and it didn't work, but you seem to be saying you have updated this independently - so the files at the 2 locations wouldn't be the same would they ?  The page with the 2 links implies you're getting the same file whichever location you choose.

3) Using the zip file from your mirror on arctablet.com and looking at the .inf file,  I can't see any reference to the Arnova 8G2 which Windows wants the driver for.  The Arnova 10G2 is in there along with lots of other devices but not the 8G2 - have I missed something ?

thanks

Thanks for letting us know.

The mix up in the links has been corrected.

The zip archive wasn't actually updated, only the separate android_winusb.inf file contained more devices.

This has just been fixed as well.

 

Please let us know how it goes.

Once again thanks for the quick reply.  I've now installed the driver successfully, although I did have an issue and haven't yet checked it with Eclipse as I have to reboot to do that - will provide another update once I've done that.

The issue I encountered is that your adb_winusb_driver.zip file is not a complete file - the AMD and i386 folders are empty.  I suppose this explains why your file is 17KB and the Archos/Arnova file is 8.3MB.   So while your .inf file is correct and the Arnova 8G2 was recognised, the Windows Driver installation process complained that it could not find  winusbcoinstaller2.dll

I had to download the official zip file as well as yours to get a complete set of files - once I pointed the installer at the extra downloaded files the driver installation went through OK.  Your revised download page still implies you're getting everything if downloading from your mirror though.

Thanks again.

My initial idea was to have our package to be merged with Archos one. It actually doesn't make much sense so I have repackaged the whole thing with our updated INF file. I've also included support for the Arnova 8b G2 DT (Dual Touch resistive model) in the INF file.

I hope it's more clear and easier for everybody now Wink

Just confirming all is well after installing the driver.  Eclipse recognises the device and I've been able to install a test app on it without problems.

Thanks again for your help.

I am having trouble to install your or any driver using Windows 8. It complains about the signature/checksum not being valid.

Does anyone know a proper way to install a USB driver to get the Archos to work under Windows 8?

Yes, this helped.

I watched the video about the RockUSB driver and how he simply picked the driver from the device list.

Since I am suspicious about any driver not signed (not that it would guarantee anything), I went ahead and simply forced Windows 8 to use a Samsung ADB driver I had on my system, and it works!

 

Now my next task, finding out how to update my Archos to Android 2.3.3. :-)

 

Edit: Did not find 2.3.3, but the 4.x on your site. Downloaded, followed instructions and now I got a sweet Archos 7 G2 with much improved interface!
