Archos mp3 files and folders not visible

When archos mp3 is conected to the PC (or car usb mp3 player) no files or folders are found. Although it seems that free/used disk space is correctly represented, no file are visible from usb. Pleying them and seeing them from the mp3 player itself is still ok.

SOURCE: "formatting problem"

I had a similar problem, I could upload songs, but they wouldn't play and I couldn't delete them. turned out it was cause I didn't have WMP10 installed on my PC, had an older version. the user manual states it only works with WMP10, and after I installed it (just search for windows media player 10 on the microsoft website) I was able to use the synch function in WMP10 and all the songs are playable (I'm listening to an album as I type :D)

Why don't you try to format your external drive. There's a variety of options where you can format it. The first one is Go to the My Computer then Right Click on the Icon of your External Drive then Select Format, it is better to select full erase of the the drive.

SOURCE: CAN'T VIEW MY FILES AND FOLDERS ?

It may be just the USB working mode of the player. The USB mode has to be set to either mass storage to view file/folders in Windows Explorer, or the other mode for Syncing with special mp3 player software such as Rapsody. NormalIy the USB mode is "automatic", but sometime this doesn't work or gets set off of automatic. So try setting the USB mode in the player's options. Is that doesn't work, please advise.

How can i put music on my Archos 5?


Once you connect your archos 5 to the computer, it will ask you whether u want to "enable USB' or "charge only"....select enable USB (OK). then go to "My Computer", and you will see a graphical image of the archos 5, under the name "portable devices"..
Double click on it, until you get to the "music" folder..and once you open this folder, you cn start copy-paste....- where you copy the music file from a folder in your computer, then paste it to the 'music ' folder on your archos..and you're done!!!!

Can you only delete files on the Archos 3 via a


Ok. With the Archos 3 Vision, in any mode (ie file viewer or one of the libraries) if you touch a file name and hold down on it, you will be given a prompt to either "Delete" or "Exit". I hope this answers your question. It took me a while to figure this out since the documentation that came with the product was absolutely horrible.

Firmware upgrade results in arclibrary boot failure


I managed to overcome the problem by doing a factory reset. Unfortunately doing this initially created more problems in that on reboot the main screen appearance looked as it should but was almost inoperable. When the usb cable was connected to my pc the disc did appear on My Computer . The system folder was only 1MB. By good fortune I had copied and saved my Archos files before I carried out the factory reset. Copying the original system files ( about 20MB) back to my Archos returned normal behaviour. Further, two additional buttons appeared. One was a manual arclibrary update button and the other a USB setup button . I cannot get file transfer to operate under windows media player mode and Windows media player 11. No problem though. I use PC hard drive mode and carry out a manual arclibrary update. None of this was possible prior to the factory reset. I believe I would still be having serious problems had I not saved and restored my system files
