SOURCE: ARCHOS 404

Connect to USB cable and Enable USB 1. in Windows media device mode- automatically downloads every song from your WMP or 2. In PC drive mode you can select what to put on your device ( Pictures, music, documents, etc.) Depending on Operating System, Vista automatically syncs all new photos and songs in WMD mode. XP you go into your WMP and sync by dragging songs to sync and sync to A404 device. (like you would for any MP3) For video and movies you need the DVR adaptor. Also there is an extended manual on the internet at www.archos404manuel.com just search then click on english.

SOURCE: ARCHOS 404.. new.. won't turn on or charge

Leave it to charge for 2 hours just in case there isn't enough power for it to boot up properly until it has an initial charge.

SOURCE: fix my archos 404

Can it be fixed, yes. However, the replacement panel will probably cost $150 or more. Given that the original cost of the player is $179, I don't think it is worth it. The labor cost will make the repair exceed $179.

SOURCE: 404 is frozen

In the event that your ARCHOS device freezes operation
(due to electrostatic phenomena, for example), you can reset it
by pressing the button for 15 seconds.

My 160GB archos 504 hdd was badly fragmented. I tried to use my pc to sort the problem but the archos seemed to disconnect from the pc about 16% through the defragmentation, next I tried using the archos...


if you can use 10gb of your hardisk its means its not totally broken... first make sure theres no partition of your hdd... because hdd can split into 2 or 3 or more...example the first partition is 10 gb and the second partition is 50 gb and the ramaining partition is 100gb... try to format your hdd in... first click start right click my computer choose the manage and computer management will apear then click the disk management and it will show if your HDD is have partinion that no have drive letter just right click it and you can rename it or delete... or you can reformat it...

Hdd recovery 2 problem


I have the same problem with my Archos 605 Wifi.

I found out that my harddrive was broken. so i replaced it with a new one.

Formatted it, system installed the OS and Media Files.

I downloaded the firmware from the Archos website itself!.

Also this went well. Than i had to confirm with ''done''.

But still i keep cycling through a circle of ''rebooting'' and receiving the ''HDD_Recovery_2'' screen. With the only selectable options:
''USB'' and ''Format''

Please does anyone know the solutions???
