i had same issue. nothing worked until i saw a guy who fixed his by dropping it on floor?
i dropped my archos in the protective case from 2 feet off floor. the bloody thing when came back to life, 100% good. i think the hard drive was stuck and the fall fixed it!! it cannot hurt as yours is broken still i guess. hope it works for you to
I wouldnt like to be dropping mine on the floor,unless there was no other option,you just got to be patient here and you usually find an answer.I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it These are the steps i followed
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc
* When the white screen comes up do format
* Wait until all done then put the firmware in to the root sector of the Archos
* 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 in 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
and it will shut off. Turn it back on Your archos will be back to normal.
When you go to download from Archos site it will explain how to download depending upon how your device pops up on your Pc.
Hope this helps

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.
Format error are often shown if the file stored on your Sony NW-E505 is not recognized by the system. Try to review the supported audio formats of your player,use audio (format) converter for better compatibility.
You need to format the player according to it's own file system. Press SEARCH / MENU button and wait 2-3 seconds until a menu pops up. There you have format option. Format your player and start using it after putting some new music files.
I hard tried the same thing to transfer a 6.7GB file to another computer.I had formated the drive as an NTFS drive. when i turned archos back on, it failed to turn on give me error code. but for some reason it asked me to do a recovery. I remember i had seen some recovery files in my archos device saved (zipped file packages). And when it was doing the recovery i noticed it was reading the zipped files for recovery purpose. After the recovery, i did not see the files anymore in the device. So if i do the same thing again (format as ntfs) i might not be able to recover it back again.
recovery code 102 screen - this error message means the the hard disk has failed - I am guessing that the unit has been dropped at some point - Sorry but it back to Archos - The UK number is 0207 949 0115
It is very dangerous in formatting the 16MB format of the device. After learning it a hard way, i also learned the the 16MB format is a second partition of your player where is installs the firmware of the device. Formatting it will ruin your player and it will never function again the way you want it to work.
