Go to archos firmware and download version 2.1.04 to your pc or laptop and save it in a folder then get ur mp4 turn it on and go format you will get a screen that says done leave it on that and connect to your pc or laptop it will recognise your mp4 then go in my computer and open 405 and open your save file and drag the save file into the 405 but NOT into a folder below them and after it has\copied turn the 405 off and start it up should be as good as new

    Follow steps to archos firmware site & download the update for 2.1.4 your pc may not recognise it but don't worry press save, then select a folder for the update to be saved. when completed open the archos icon which will show files music, video, system, ect. Copy & paste the firmware icon from the folder you copied it to, into archos icon folder, making sure not to place it into any of the music, video & system files.Follow on screen instruction for reboot Leave for a short time then switch off & on. You should be sorted, it worked for me.

    When you pick the format option. You need to wait about 5 - 10 seconds after the format is done. An option screen pops up (confirming the recognition of the Archos's HDD ) open the files and follders and follow the further steps i wrote above

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.

See:

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?

It means that there is a hard drive error due to damage. The hard drive can be repaired by selecting 'Repair Disk'.

I tried to translate this for you using Google Translate, but Fixya would not allow it.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.
