    I have had the same problem. I switch it on but it won't stay on and the battery was full before. I did have an error message come up on screen before it switched off after trying to copy some music onto it from my computer so wasn't sure if a virused file had corrupted it in some way.

Probably a bad connection from the drop, or one of the ribbons has gotten loose. The only way to tell, is to open up the player and examine it and look for damage.

Your windows is installed on FAT 32 partition, so it is not recognized partitions bigger than 4 Gb. Change to NTFS. ATTENTION ! All informations on your computer will be lost. Do this only after saving your private files !!!

AV480 battery replacement

Some AV400 models are made with integrated batteries which
are designed to last for the life of the AV400. This means that you will
not have to change them. If, in the exceptional case, the batteries need
changing, this should only be done by an Archos technician.

If your player is dead, it is probably NOT the battery that's the problem.

I have a archos av400 and it is coming on read access error can't read from hard drive please help

If it is a av400 series
plug it into the computer and attempt to format it.
If it fails its a very high probability the hard drive has failed.
there is a slight possibility its the ribbon cable that connects the drive to the main board or the controller in the archos so I would check the drive after removal and prior to buying a new one.
this can be done in a usb caddy or with a 3.5" to 2.5" converter (about $5 on ebay) letting you put the drive in a PC for testing.

If its above 40gb any 2.5" laptop drive upto 100gb can be fitted.
If its a 20gb you need a single platter 1.8" ata drive

any further questions just ask
