Question about Archos 604 Digital Media Player
I have the same problem the recovery code 4
First you take the battery off, then you unscrew the 4 or 6 screw on
the sides of the hard drive, then you lift the lid and then the hard
drive, VERY CAREFULLY, Then you will see the problem : the little black
plug conected through a ribbon to the hard drive is not plugged
correctly or it is completely unpluged from the white socket. even if
it is not un plugged just make sure it's tight, put everything back
together and it should work just fine. ( IT IS A LITTLE DIFFICUL TO
SCREW IT BACK TOGETHER BUT YOU"LL GET IT RIGHT) it is a weird problem.
but it is easily fixed.
if this doesnt work.... then what u need to to do is to download the lates .aos file from the archos website
Download the .aos file from the Archos website (firmware/operating system) -
Select your archos type from the dropdown & save the downloaded file (*.aos) to your desktop - in my case "a404.aos".
Attach your archos to your powered on pc & switch on the archos.
When prompted with "No", "Repair" or "Format", you need to select either format or repair - format is more reliable however removes all data!!! - this allows your pc to see the Archos - do not select done after selecting format or repair.
Open my computer or home you will see your archos folder - drag & drop the aos file from your desktop to your archos folder-
Once the file has been transferred to the archos, keep the archos connected by USB & reboot your PC.
The archos will automatically boot up - if frozen at the "Done" screen - reset it with a pin then the archos will boot up.
hope this helps
have a nice day
