Hello there, sorry to hear about your troubles with this device.

Lets go through the steps here, it sounds like you are doing it correctly.

First off power down the unit by holding in the power button for a good 15 seconds.

Take out the battery from the unit, then go ahead and put it back in. There should be a button to release the battery, so this step should be pretty easy.

Now plug the Archos into your computers USB port (while the archos is off)

It should automatically turn on and start charging, you should see a flashing battery indicator on the screen. Also, there is a CHG indicator light on the actual unit should be on to show that it's charging, it flashes when the battery is full.

If none of this works you will want to try a master reset on the device. On the bottom of the player is a small hole to the left of the plug ins. It's the smaller of the two holes by the plugins (ones on one side, one on the other). Take a paperclip and stick one end of it into this hole and press the button in there.

If even this doesn't work then you will want to try to run Recovery Mode on the device. To do that turn the device off. Then go to turn it on again and as soon as the LCD screen starts to come on immediately press and hold the TV/LCD button. A service menu should pop up. Try the format option from here (this will erase all data on the device).

If that does not work, choose Settings on the home screen, go to System after that, then go to the Repair and Formatting tools. At the very bottom of this screen choose FULL REINITIALIZATION. This will reset absolutely everything possible.

If this STILL does not fix the problem then you will need to call Archos for repair or replacement.

In the United States their number is 630 579-3515


Thanks for your time, this should definitely answer your question, sorry about the flood of information!

I am not able to connect my achos to my pc or laptop. When I attached the cable from my achos to my system; it charges the battery but I cant access the hard drive and other files


If you plug the Archos when it is off, wait until main screen appears, press OK button when the message about charging pops up, then press MENu and scroll down to the USB options, select hard drive mode. Please read the manual you can download at Archos official site/support/downloads

How do fix my Archos 605 after resettin using factory option


Well If a white screen shows up when you turn it on, select format. Wait for it to finish, then when it asks for a update file, plug it in to the computer and copy the .aos update file to the archos. Don't put it in a folder, just put it the root, (the folder that has the folders for music, video, flash, etc.) Unplug it and the archos should recognize it and proceed with the firmware update.

The Updates can be downloaded here:

for 20GB-160GB
http://update.archos.com/5/a605/a605_r2.1.04/firmware_a605.aos

or for the 4GB

Archos won't connect by USB to computers


You should keep your eye on the device after its been plugged to the PC it will give you 2 options "charge" or "usb" you ca not establish a connection without picking usb connection option on the Archos screen when it pops up. If you are doing so and problem still existed then i would recommend you to download the latest windows media player. Because it comes with new devices sync driver update.

I have the Archos Gmini XS 100 4MB and am currently using Windows XP I can charge my Mp3 using the USB cable but my computer cant recognise it. It comes up Removable disk G but when i click on it it says...


probably means your pc doesn't like it for some reason. i have XP too,and that happens to me sometimes. try plugging it in then taking it out again then putting it back in. if not, look at the properties of it.

My archos 605 has got recovery code 102 and i cant get it to conect to my pc to fix it can u halp


I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed 
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in toPc before starting the process.
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc 
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving, wait until it is all done, it will shut off. Turn it back on and  your archos will be back to normal
