The hard drive in the Archos may have become corrupted. A format will most likely fix the issue but the media on the drive will be erased.

Trouble starting


Yes you need to download a software from Acrhos web site, but try first to connect the player to your computer and format it from there and check if it will fix the problem before doing the update....

Archos av500 hard drive replacement


Downgrade firmware from 1.5.12 to 1.3.12 and then replace the hard drive, it should work. It does not work with firmware versions superior to 1.3.12. If you have 1.5.13 you can downgrade to 1.5.12 using the normal archos update procedure (yes, from 1.5.13 to 1.5.12 you can freely donwgrade using standard offical method). You can find 1.5.12 firmware on the official archos download page. If you need the 1.3.12 version (not available at archos website) it can be retrieved there: http://www.opendrivers.com/freedownload/232939/archos-av500-portable-dvr-firmware-1.3.12-download.html

Archos av 700- Im having a problem with mine it keep coming up with can't read from hard drive error.


It only contains a laptop hard drive, so buy a new one remove all screws from either side of your av700 and replace it, dont worry cause once you open your av700 the hard drive is really simple to swap,then fire it up and format the drive you can download upgraded software from www.archos.com

LG viewty 4 gb memeory card..I accidently formated ths on phone! how do i unformat it?


Hi, I also had this issue.
The solution is on http://communities.sandisk.com/sandisk/board/message?board.id=mobile&message.id=209

You need to google for an app from HP called SP27608.exe.
This will read the card as 4gb and let you reformat it.

Memeory Card Installation


There are several possible issues here so I will cover them all...

The size of the card is not the issue as the model you have is known to work with 2gb and 4gb SDRAM Cards.

If the memory you have is SDHC rather than Regular SD that would be the problem. Your device will not work with SDHC memory.

What OS did you use when you reformatted the card? The reason that I ask is that the standard format for that device is supposed to be FAT, not FAT32 or NTFS. If you formatted it in FAT32 or NTFS it will work fine on your computer but not on the phone.

Try reformatting the card using the FAT system.
