    I have the same problem with the Archos 505. It was working fine for a few months after I bought it, but now the touch screen doesn't work and I don't know what to do

The 405 isn't a touch screen one. At least mine isn't, and I wasn't expecting it to be.

Archos 405 2GB isn't recognized by Windows XP computer anymore

Hi. Remove the 16gb SDHC. If you still have difficulties then downgrade the firmware (to original version). You may need to enter
'recovery mode' by powering down the archos then press both power button and volume up button at the same time. Do a disk repair. Shayind4

Hi fiona

I had the same problem as the archos web site is not the easiest to navigate.Have you actualy registered the product yet ?if so once logged in add your device as a product,on my products click on the picture of the 405 and that will take you to the screen for downloading archoslink (software to install the tv guide) and to the subscription page for down loading the tv guide.

How ever i have done all this and although i can download the guide i cannot sync it to my 405 so still unable to record off tv....Email gone to archos so fingers crossed....
