Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

Archos 605 doesn't recognize my music files

So I didn't have any problems with my archos until now. I have the 605wifi 80GB version. One day i plugged it into my pc and it had some weird reaction to windows media player that I had open when I plugged it in. I cancelled whatever it was trying to do but now when I try to listen to my music on my archos, I can't access any through the "Music" button. I have to go to the "Files" button, go into my "Music" folder, then choose my music. Needless to say, it was much easier to have my music organized by Artist, Album, Title, Genre, etc. First I trieid just turning it on and off and connecting and reconnecting it to my pc. Then I tried to sync the music on my Archos with windows media player with no results. I also tried taking all of my music off of my Archos and then putting it all back. Nothing changed. What else can I do to fix this?

Oh, one more strange thing. When I go into the "Music" button, my Archos still recognizes 30 songs all of the songs are unable to be played. When I plug my Archos into my pc, they don't appear so it's not like I can delete them there either...

    I have same problem and now my pc will not recognize my 605. I tried to uninstall and then install it again and still nothing. I attempted to move my songs to playlist (to organize them since they are on hard drive and not under MUSIC) and it will not work either. I was on hold for 30 minutes with ARCHOS and finally gave up.

Thanks and credit to eyez12 - the 2nd option below worked for me

try going to menu, settings, system, and then clicking the update ARCLibrary button, that was all it took for me.
if that doesn't work then go to repair and formatting tools and click "clear temp system files and cache"

How do fix my Archos 605 after resettin using factory option


Well If a white screen shows up when you turn it on, select format. Wait for it to finish, then when it asks for a update file, plug it in to the computer and copy the .aos update file to the archos. Don't put it in a folder, just put it the root, (the folder that has the folders for music, video, flash, etc.) Unplug it and the archos should recognize it and proceed with the firmware update.

The Updates can be downloaded here:

for 20GB-160GB

or for the 4GB

Just got Archos 5 goes into error 101...


Hi there, these instructions are for the archos 705 but they are the same for the 605.

A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 705:
1- Connect the unit to its power source.
2- Start the unit in recovery mode: Press the TV button first then the power on/off and keep pressing TV button (do not release it)
3- The recovery mode will start (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the TV Button (it is all explained to move through the menu at the top of the Archos screen) (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" select it to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" plug it with the USB cable to the computer
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 705:
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 705 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the power cable until the process is finished
4- When done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!
