Question about Archos Gmini 402 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Hi. I wonder if anyone has an idea how to fix

Hi. I wonder if anyone has an idea how to fix this problem:
I recorded a 14min video with my gmini 402 and the battery was running extremely low at the time. When i go to playback, it plays for 8 seconds then the buttons are unresponsive and the video continues for another 4 seconds before freezing then returning to the video folder. It displays that the video is it's true length of 14mins, but only plays 12 seconds before crashing. When i plug it into computer, it shows the video is 300MB, but will not copy the file, reporting a number of different errors. Is there any way i can fix this part of the disk or solve the problem? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

In fact the actual recording is of 12 seconds. Rest of the time shown is estimated time and the same is with the file size. Try running scandisk or chkdsk program. (ehteshamhusain@gmail.com)

File Allocation Table corrupted


I got rid of the problem on my own, please read below how I solved it.
Basically, the partition of hard drive was still there but with corrupted data about its files indexes. With a free HDD rescue tool I was able to identify the partition and fix the problems regarding its corrupted indexes (file allocation table and toc).
After fixing the problem, the device became fully working and there's no data loss.

Try turning the unit on with the hard drive disconnected. When I did this (mine had a similar problem) a screen came up and asked me if I wanted to format. I plugged the hard drive back in and reformatted. I had to format twice, but after that it worked fine.

Freezes on start up


If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini? 402 you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk). Do the following; ? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini? 402. ? Quit all running applications. ? Properly connect the Gmini? 402 to your computer ? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted. ? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > command Prompt. ? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini? 402. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors. ? Be patient, this may take a while. ? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini? 402 from your computer. Try it now and see if makes any difference,

Try using the device now and see if makes any difference. This method should help to fix any disc errors that have occurred within the FAT and help your PC recognise it again. If you have more problems, try formatting it using a DOS prompt. You MUST make sure NOTHING is trying to access the disc before you can format it - this includes windows explorer.
