Hi you need to register your product on the Archos web site, you will then have access to your personal pass code - But all they will do is just send you a e-mail saying call us on 0207 949 0115.

So just cut out the middleman and call them on 0207 949 0115.

Recovery code 101


A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 5 or 7:
1- Plug the unit to you computer via the USB cable.
2- The unit should start automatically and open the following page:
3- From the recovery console (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the volume control on the right of the unit (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" press the on and off button, shortly to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" but it is already plugged from point 1 - DO NOT press anything anymore on the Archos
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 5 or 7
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the USB cable until the process is finished
4- when done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!

Archos driver and content portal


I think that the driver update that you're talking about is the firmware update, it is free to get the update through the archos website. All of the songs from itunes can't be put onto the archos. If you want the content portal you must purchase the cinema plugin. (that's the way archos designed the product) Your archos must be set on window media player first, before you can put your songs onto it, go to menu, click system and choose window media player and you can transfer your songs. Call tech support at archos 18773008879. This should help.
