    When turning on Archos 605 Wifi. It states system is damaged Recovery code 107. Would you like to recover? When I enter Repair or format disk it just restarts with the same problem. I was using it fine until this happened. Is ther a problem with my hard drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    i have the same problem mate.....

    Yes, mine just went down with the same error and it is non recoverable. I phoned Archos (France), and they asked me all the usual questions...will it reset via the reset pinhole (no).......can you repair or refromat it via the white screen (no)....does the computer recognise it in Windows explorer (no)......and the upshot is what we already know 'system is damaged' i shall email you with an address where you can send it for repair. I made the comment that this is not the first time the unit had crashed and to recover full functions i have reformatted it about 4-5 times; I think they have a problem with this, the chap said that after they have had a chance to repair it this will not occur again, but frankly the device has been very tempremental especially when transferring larger video files to it which it should be able to handle as they are under the 2 GB limit.

    Dear Volkan user, I did not try your HD problem, yet. But I want to ask you something; Will it be a solution for the other error codes, like 104, 207 and 103? What do you think about this? I have an issue especially these other errors; it's link is :http://www.fixya.com/support/t14171359-2... . Thank you in advance for your comments.

Do not pick any just turn it off. I have tried this many times and believe me it worked. You need to open the back cover and unhook the HDD turn the device on after Hdd taken out and turn it back off. This will trick the system and plug HDD back in turn on the archos before closing the cover. If it works you got yur unit back if it does not then my suggetion is use another HDD to trick the system make sure to mark the original HDD is marked swap the HDD and turn onn and off. Put the original back in turn it back on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzhLk16jbvw

Recovery (code 104)


From Archos' support website FAQ:

When I switch on my Archos device, the following message is displayed: "Would you like to recover your system?" What does it mean and what should I do?


You are on the recovery mode screen. It means that your hard drive has been damaged and must be repaired or formatted.
With this system recovery mode, you will have to select between "Repair Disk" and "Format Disk".
Start by selecting "Repair Disk" and follow the instructions displayed on the screen. See the full PDF manual (available on the Archos web site) on how to use the Repair and Format options.

If repairing the disk did not work, try formatting the disk by selecting "Format Disk". Note that the formatting will erase all data.

If you still cannot restart your Archos after trying a system recovery, you should contact Archos technical support.

Wont start recovery 102??


Remove your memory card and restart your archos, when it asks if you want to repair blahblah... just keep pressing the cross till it loads as normal with the sd card 'out', this should work, to stop it happening in the future format your memory card 'sd' with your archos once it has started. Hope that helps!

ARCHOS 605 WIFI FIRMWARE DISABLED


hitesh_rao - the reset button is at the bottom by the USB and docking ports. Tiny hole, need a pin or paper clip. Once pressed, just switch it back on.
This may be a stupid question, but when trying to configure the TV IR controller function and entering the relevant codes for my TV's, it asks 'did the TV switch off = Yes/No?'
None of my TV's switch off and then I cannot go any further with the config. Is this right? I have logged this with Archos FOUR times now, and they just respond with 'the controller does not control your TV'. I am fully aware that it is not a TV controller, but then why does it want to switch off my TV during the config? I just want them to answer that question.
Somebody please help!
