It sounds like the card may have had corruption on it, or the device itself needs to be reinstalled to factory settings. as far as your information, have you tried to put the card into a PC?

My palm did something similar to this, and it was rectified by resetting it back to factory defaults. hope this helps at all...

Hi!

Try removing the memory card and then see if the touch screen is working or not. Also try taking the battery out and inserting it after 10 minutes.

Putt a toothpick in the hole on the bottom for 15+ seconds to reset the device and see if you still have the same problem.

Please post the results.

How do fix my Archos 605 after resettin using factory option


Well If a white screen shows up when you turn it on, select format. Wait for it to finish, then when it asks for a update file, plug it in to the computer and copy the .aos update file to the archos. Don't put it in a folder, just put it the root, (the folder that has the folders for music, video, flash, etc.) Unplug it and the archos should recognize it and proceed with the firmware update.

The Updates can be downloaded here:

for 20GB-160GB
http://update.archos.com/5/a605/a605_r2.1.04/firmware_a605.aos

or for the 4GB

Wont start recovery 102??


Remove your memory card and restart your archos, when it asks if you want to repair blahblah... just keep pressing the cross till it loads as normal with the sd card 'out', this should work, to stop it happening in the future format your memory card 'sd' with your archos once it has started. Hope that helps!

I would suggest that you buy a external USB card reader, you should be able to pick one up quite cheaply and see if that works ?
