    when turning on my Archos 404 I get the Recovery (code 3) and then it says System is damaged. Would you like to recover it?



    I get three options: NO - Repair - Format Disk. No of them work.



    The pc does not recognize the device either

Try my suggestion to "recovery code 4" error. It should work, too.

Recovery code 2 / system is damaged. would you like to recover it ? No Repair Format Disk Any body have any ideas ?


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.?????

I have archos 504 160 gb when it turn on i have message (recovery code 4) would you like to recover your system ? no - repair disk - format disk when i push no no thing action . when push repair or...


This is a recovery mode, and this menu allows you to:

 

-Format your hard drive
-Restore your system

 

In case of repair disk is selected :

 

For the first step you have to go on our website, and download the latest firmware update for your product.

 

Plug your Archos 504/604 on the computer and copy the firmware previously downloaded at the root of your device.

 

Disconnect your device as usual, and select done on the screen.

You have to plug the dc adaptor to update successfully, press a button to reboot your device.here is the web address  http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/updates.html?country=us&lang=en&#firm

Archos Recovery (code 2)


Send them back to Archos if they are still under warranty. If not, you're out of luck because they'll charge you about US$140 to repair the hard drive + postage.

Then go into my computer click on the archos device after that has finished downloading and drag that file into the archos folder and the rest it does itself.

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 pcm you will see a screen where you wil be prompted to press DONE (but DONT press it yet!!!!)
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it (it will recognize it this time)
d. copy firmware from pc and paste it to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. now when the device restarts you just select Repair and that should work. :)
