Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player
While in PC Hard drive mode I deleted everything (intentionally) from my music library. So my "Music" library on the device should be empty, but when I go to it all the files are shown as still existing. When I try to play or delete them, though, it says I can't do either because the file cannot be accessed.
But when I go to the music folder by first going to "Files" there is nothing there. How do I erase the lingering files that cannot be accessed because they do not exits???
The problem is that the Archos stores library information separately from the actual files on the device and the library must be updated whenever the files are changed.
To manually update your library: From the main screen on your Archos 605, choose the Settings menu from the bottom right corner and select "System".
If there is an "Update ARCLibrary" button available, then click that button and see if it updates your device.
If the button is not there, or does not work, then try temporarily switching the "UBS Preference" setting to 'Windows Media Device" and closing the Settings screen. This should invoke the library update. Once updated, you can switch back to PC Hard Drive Mode.
