On the 604 you change to the settings view and select System and the product key is in there.
The 605 should be in the system folder screen too.

connect the Archos into your computer, allow the computer recognize and install it, open the Archos and copy, then paste it into the Archos, eject if from your computer and that's all.

For Archos manuals, visit the link below:


Scroll down the page and click the download button.

I believe the manual should be of great help.

Good luck

Memory inside is fouling and it is going to need to be serviced or if there is a firmware update I'd try that before all else.

We called tech support and you fix it by doing a reset on the base of the device. We used a paperclip to push the button. Hope this helps!

It will not connect to a wireless network with WEP. it supports only the latest encryption. Try changing the encreption on your router to WPA or WPA2

I sen't you a solution didn't you get it?
If your archos 605 is in recovery mode I beleave the firmware(software) would need to be reloaded.

Here is the firmware for the 4GB version of the device, the page has instructions on how to load the firmware. Click on "how to install firmware" for step by step instructions.

4GB version here

20GB-160GB version here

I was having a similar problem where my 160 gb Archos 605 would not hold a charge even after two days of being plugged in through an AC wall adapter. It worked fine for 5 months without a problem, but then all of the sudden it would not hold a charge even if the LED light was blinking green.

One thing that I found that makes it now hold a charge now is by letting is by plugging it in to a computer. I don't know why, but for some reason, now when I charge it through a computer usb as opposed to the wall adapter, it charges and holds a chrage for over 3 hours. So, maybe try to just let the thing charge through a computer.

Go to the Archos website and type in your model number - my case 605 WiFi - and it shows you a list of firmware downloads. Just click to download the latest firmware update which you should save in your desktop - it's about 45Mb-. Once te download is complete open My Computer on your PC and click on teh Archos icon which takes you to internal hard drive icon, click on this icon and paste the update (aos) file from your desktop into this level of teh Archos - Don't paste it into any of the folders as it wont work!

When you disconnect your Archos from your PC it will display that it has found an update and would you like to install it, click on Yes and Voila! WMP playlist will now sync properly to the Archos!

Hope this helps you teh way it helped me.
