    same with me.. i havent used my ipod for months and when i tried to open and charge it in my pc, it just wont open and charge.. what should i do!!

    Yeah, me too. It happened once, and after I had all but forgotten about this thing, it came back to life. So I began to use it again, and about a month and a half later, here I am again tonight trying to load it, and it freezes. It thinks it is still synced to my pc. I really depend on this thing. I am trying to disconnect the battery and reboot it. It may not work but i'm pretty fed up. If it works, I'll let you know how I did it, if not assume I've gotten an Ipod touch.

    My Philips 6gb GoGear HDD worked until I disconnected from the USB charger, it did not power on again. I tried soft reset - didnt work, tried charging, no charging icon, DOA. I gave up on this cheap device, you get what you pay for. I forgot to mention this mp3 was replaced already by the store, for the same reason.

Ok, I got it. First, dont do what I did (if anyone would) and try to take it apart, big sacrifice, low payoff. I looked up the faq on this (hdd1630) and they said to hold the power button and the vol+ button for a couple seconds, and it worked. If this doesnt help, here is the link -
very helpful.

My itouch froze while i was resotoring it

hold the power and home buttons for about a minute and then it will turn off. When you turn it back on it still will have to be restored. When you do it again make sure not to touch anything and it should work properly. If it doesnt well, then I wish you good luck. This is not a guess because I did this when it happened to me today.

This may be the mp3 player that is wired badly. However, you may taking the battery or disconnecting it from its power for 10-30 seconds. Also, power down the computer and wait for 10 seconds -30 depending on the amount of times the computer has been shut down for the week. Try downloading its driver so that the computer will recognize this hardware.

Archos 405 Portable Media Player

Found it on tha FAQ at Archos website. It worked on mine.
Best regards

My Archos 605 is freezing or stops responding during playback, or when recording, what should I do?
First take a look if your battery is fully charged.

You can also make a long press on the on/off button for 15 seconds; it will switch off the unit and your data will be not erased

If your device continues to stop and freeze, you have the possibility to format it from the settings menu; you can do this into settings, then select system and repair and format tools.

Before doing this, you have to save all your files on your computer
