Hi,
I really miss the missing NTFS support. My 2,5" 500GB portable hard drive would be perfect for the A500, but some files are over 4GB (MKVs for example)
Please make a Custom Rom, that supports this.
Thanks in advance!

my guess on that would be that archos licensed it from MS.

Try this apk file. It was done for the G-Tab but it might work.

I don't have this device so I can't test it.

NTFS Mount
NTFS Mount

I've manage to pack all the needed files into an apk so you no longer need to mess around with adding files to system/xbin and writing up scripts.

Please see the market for the latest version (Now called drive mount)

https://market.android.com/details?i...ach.drivemount

As above there could be some problems with the Tiamat rom and I'll look into it as I get further information.

Root is still needed

Instructions
  1. Install APK
  2. Connect HDD
  3. Launch app
  4. Select device
  5. Click Mount

Any hassles let me know.

Version 1.3 has the ability to mount NTFS microsd cards by turning off device filtering. It also has the ability to mount multiple formats.

any program to play 1080p mkv without converting. I know it wont support 1080 due to smaller screen resolution but that's what I have.

Sorry about that, it should have been /mnt/usb_storage not /dev/usb_storage. I'll fix the above post.

Cheers,
Dwayne
