    same problem here
    it charges over the usb but the pc can't see it.
    unlikely to be a problem with the cable as i tried usb and docking station.
    Archos Tech Support is of no help. Sent three messages over their website, but besides the standard auto reply there was no answer

This can happen to any external drive on a pc. If the Archos is set to PC Hard Drive mode, then plug it into you PC and click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
In the console tree, click Disk Management.
You can now allocate a drive letter to the Archos.
If you cannot see your Archos in this window, then you may have a dodgey usb cable.

Bbc i player won't play on archos 5


that is because it it incompatible with the version of flash that is used by the archos. unless archos change that with a future update or iplayer suddenly becomes more backwards-compatible in the future then don't expect this to change.

CProblems onnecting Archos 700 after connecting 605 to PC


It is very possible the drivers conflict. You should try uninstalling everything to do with the one you don't want. Then install the drivers/software for the 700. Also what software are you using and what version?
Thanks,
Lee

I PURCHASE A VIDEO PLUG- IN FOR MAY ARCHOS 605 AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE THIS VIDEO PLUG INSTALL IN MY ARCHOS,I HAVE A MAC COMPUTER


You need to plug your Archos into your pc and explore the drive.
Copy the plugin from your pc to the root of the Archos.
The Archos should say that it's found software and start installing.

My archos 605 has got recovery code 102 and i cant get it to conect to my pc to fix it can u halp


I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed 
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in toPc before starting the process.
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc 
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving, wait until it is all done, it will shut off. Turn it back on and  your archos will be back to normal
