When i switch the archos on
the screen appear
system is damaged.would you like to recover it?
i try all those three options but nothing help..can you please help me
I had the same problem. However although my pc didn't automatically recognise the archos device when connected it did show when explorer was opened. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Archos website and dragged into the root directory of Archos. The device then picked this up and everything was fine. Previously I had tried repair and format. Obviously all the demo video and photos etc are wiped.

hey, did you sort this out? If so, how?cause I have the exact same problem...If I manage to be fast enough to press the button to "recover" or "format" before the screen freezes then it just goes into recovery for ages but accomplishes nothing. My computer doesn't recognize my archos so oI can't upload anything or update anything.?????
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.
i beleive that when it says the system is damaged, it means some files may have been corrupted or harmed. i don't think recovering it would bad. this should go through and make sure all files are intact
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
I was watching a film on mine and it paused and I hade to hold in the power button to shut it off. When I restarted it I get that error message too. I
did the same as everyone else with no luck, so I left it on thinking
that maybe running the battery down and charging it again might help
but no luck. I left it for a week then decided to have another go at fixing it. I removed the battery and used the reset button to set it to factory defaults. I
powered it up and got the error message and tried the USB cable again
(Can't remember for sure if it was on or off when I connected it) and I
got the option of connecting to my PC and copying a system update to it. I downloaded the update and copied it to the harddrive and it then updated itself and restarted. It booted up ok but when I restarted it I get the error message again. I redid the first bit again and using the XP Disc Management I removed the partition, then redone it. I restarted the 604 and formatted the harddrive and copied the update and it updated and restarted again. The pointer needs to be calabrated again on it to work but it's back to normal now and working great. I
set everything up and copied all the folders into a folder on my PC so
if it happens again I just need to fix the harddrive and copy the files
I had the same problem and manage to solve it. You need to do the following
a. go to Archos website and download latest firmware and save on your pc
b. turn on 504 and select repair - unit not connected to pc
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it
d. copy firmware from pc and past to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. that should work. I've spent the best part of 10 hours looking for a solution to the dreaded recovery code 4. The problem is a corrupt os. I hope you're as lucky as me.
I still have a problem with mine though...a screen that blink constantly.
