The repair function only works on the internal hard drive and there is no other need to use it...external hard drives generally only connect through the archos dvr station which is sold seperately. You can buy one at archos website or circuit city among others...I've been told that it can be done without the dvr station but have found nothing in the archos docs to support this thus far nor have I ever seen it successfully done, in person, without the dvr station.

Archos tv+ doesn't boot, contantly(steadily) blinking. Can anybody help?


Hi, I had the same problem, no booting but only blinking red LEDs. I noticed the harddisk wasn't making any sound that it was working. I changed the original power supply adaptor (12v) with one producing 15v output voltage. And it's working again.

As long as you replace the hard drive with the same exact one, it should be possible. You can contact the manufacturer with the below options and they can assist you in getting a new drive.

I need the driver for XP for my archos mini HD


External hard drives are normally Plug and Play. If you're being prompted for a driver, you might need to install the chipset driver for your motherboard.

I have purchased this product with a software package that includes Kindle whispersync. I can not download any books that I purchased. it states Invalid Item, Please remove from your device and go to...


I've had the same problem and was told by an Amazon customer service person that the Archos 7 Home Tablet must not be a recognized device. I've brought the issue to the attention of Archos technical support and they claim to know nothing about another companies software and could not help. I don't think there is a solution, I think it just doesn't work on this device. I don't know why they included the kindle e reader app if it is useless on this device. I also rec'd Syncables 360 software and I can't get it to work either and technical support for that software is non existent. I tried calling the phone number a couple of times and was disconnected each time. I will be contacting the company I purchased this from to log a complaint.

Wont install to computer


On the Archos:
In the settings menu from the front screen, set your Archos to 'PC Hard Drive' instead of Windows Media Player.
If it doesn't show as an external hard drive when you plug it into your pc, do this....

On the pc:
Go to Start\run, type diskmgmt.msc and click ok to take you into Disk Management.
Your Archos should show as a drive in here and you can associate your new drive with a drive letter.

If you cannot see your Archos in this windowafter you've set it to 'PC Hard Drive' on the Archos, then you may have a dodgy usb cable.

Hope this helps......

External hard drive connection through the dvr station


i have the same problem. as far as i know it is because large external hard drives require more power and the archos does not provide enough power. it would probably work if u got a hd which had a separate power source.

Can't link my archos to my laptop


1. Copy all factory installed files from the Archos on to your PC hard drive or write a CD / DVD.
2. Download the latest software from www.Archos.com and keep a copy safe (not on the Archos!) … there was a new version last week by the way …1.5.12
3. If you record any films, music, or TV that you want to keep forever then don’t keep them on the Archos!
4. Factory installed samples (photos & films), wallpaper, etc are available for download from FTP://support.archos.com
5. If you need to format the drive but it won’t talk to the PC through the normal USB, try plugging a flash memory card (the bigger the better) into the other (left hand) USB socket and copy stuff onto it.
6. Avoid changing back & forward between ‘hard drive’ and ‘windows device’ … not sure if this was the cause of the problem but you never know!
7.Always have mains power (not battery) when moving files around.

The buttons are ALWAYS disabled when you connect it to the PC in "mass storage/hard drive" mode. This doesn´´t mean malfunction.

Archos is not claiming compatibility with vista, even with their latest firmware upgrade - sorry
