Freezes and doesn't do what I ask...

My player is ok some of the time. Then it gets very slow or doesn't do what it is asked. For example, if I try to skip song... nothing, If i try to turn volume up nothing or one bar every tenth press. Then it can refuse to switch off. I have uploaded new firmware. you need to register with archos support to even contact them - as they haven't emailed a password how can I. Regreting this purchase. Any help...

start unit up, then quickly press volume up key. This then enables you to format the drive and reload the OS.

SOURCE: Archos won't connect by USB to computers

You should keep your eye on the device after its been plugged to the PC it will give you 2 options "charge" or "usb" you ca not establish a connection without picking usb connection option on the Archos screen when it pops up. If you are doing so and problem still existed then i would recommend you to download the latest windows media player. Because it comes with new devices sync driver update.

Everytime i plug in my ipod my itunes freezes and i get a message saying that there may be a problem with some of the files on it, i do the scan it asks and nothing happens

Try using this program
I use it and it works better than iTunes. It runs faster and won't make you waste time on any un-needed syncing/backing up.
It won't delete anything on your iPod but it will let you add music very easily, almost drag-drop.

Zune player hardware problem

eeh, this is a pretty bad problem. I would ask you if you had a warranty, but you took it apart... I can only suggest getting a new one, not a 30 GB because that one seems to have the most problems. Fixing it though, you could ask the Geek Squad about it. Next time it freezes, just wait for the battery to die, then charge it and restart it.
