I have also had the same problem. Go to Google mail and type "MMP8567 boot error" in the search. You will get results where there is links to get the firmware. Especially, from FixYa. Down load the firmware and install it in your PC. Then it will format your player and install the new firmware. Your recorded songs will be lost.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed * Use thecomputerfor this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in toPc before starting the process. * Download the firware Upgrade 2.1 * Plug the Archos toPc * When the white option screen comes up, just pick the format disk * Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds * Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder. * Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug thecable. * Do not pick any option on the Archos screen * Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off * Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc * it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving, wait until it is all done, it will shut off. Turn it back on and your archos will be back to normal

You may have let a magnet get near the mp3 player. Go to "My Computer" Then double click on the Mp3 player. You will see "Internal Storage" Icon. Right click it and click format. You will lose all data on the device. Also upgrading to 3.003 does not fix the Boot error problem.
