Question about Archos 405 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Archos 405 2GB isn't recognized by Windows XP computer anymore

I added a 16GB SDHC card to expand my memory. When I tried to synch music to it, it kept crashing, despite being a compatible device according to the manuals. I attempted to update the original firmware to see if that would help, but in the process the PC stopped recognizing the Archos 405 and now just says "Unknown device." I can't find a driver or anything on the Archos web site that will enable me to do anything with this device. Can anyone help?

Hi. Remove the 16gb SDHC. If you still have difficulties then downgrade the firmware (to original version). You may need to enter
'recovery mode' by powering down the archos then press both power button and volume up button at the same time. Do a disk repair. Shayind4

How can I get the card reader to recognize sdhc cards


It's not your card reader, the SDHC mini firmware is dead that's why your reader cannot detect it. Warranty, return it to SanDisk for a new one. Every hardware you plug or attach to a PC or Laptop has what is called a firmware, a mini program that communicates with your PC and Laptop that's how they syst

Why wont my computer recognize my sandisk memory card anymore


Sometimes it happens that your slot doesn't work you can use a another option like Olympus LS-10 digital recorder as a card reader for accessing the data. Insert the SD card in your LS-10 digital recorder then connect the recorder to the computer with a USB cord then it will show you two options for the onboard storage inherent and one for the SD-Card. Select first photoshop elements to read the card and then Windows Live photo Gallery to view and copy your photos.

What's your problem?My PNY 16Gb sdhc mememry card keeps saying card error in my camera


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Toshiba type "A" sd card


I beleive the memory that it can read is only limited by the software you are running such as windows XP sp1 and 2 can recognize upto 2gb SD cards but keep in mind that SD cards only go to 2gb anything bigger than that are SDHC and are the same size but designed differently so the reader must be able to read SDHC format. Note if your hardware is capable of reading SDHC cards and your software limits your ability to use anything bigger than 2gb you can still insert and use upto 2gb of space on an SDHC card that is, say 16gb so that is how you can tell if it is hardware or software that limits the use of an SDHC card.

2Gb Micro sd card not recognized by xp pc.


From Microsoft support:
Some Secure Digital (SD) cards do not work correctly on Windows XP-based computers. Additionally, you may notice a yellow exclamation mark (!) next to the SD card in Device Manager.

This problem may occur even though you have applied other hotfixes that are required for high-capacity SD card support. For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 923293 The 923293 hotfix adds support for SD High Capacity memory cards in Windows XP 934428 Hotfix for Windows XP that adds support for SDHC cards that have a capacity of more than 4 GB

Micro sd card not working


I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).
