Point pressure when you are carrying it can easily crack the screen. No dropping necessary. I bet something got pressed up against it when you were carrying it in something and you didn't have it in a hard shell case! If the screen is cracked, your best bet is the $150 repair from Archos.

screw that software. When you plug in the archos the archos asks what your doing with it. Say Hard drive mode and then you can drag and drop and file you want onto it.

Its pretty simple put movies in the movies folder and mp3s int he music folder lol.

When switched on goes to a HDD Recovery option but when options tried a Media Failed message is received and 604 returns to the original screen

I have the same problem and I do not know how to fix it. The problem with mine is that I have replace the hard drive with a new one so it does not have the original files. Does it connect through the USB connection and does the computer detect it?

To reset you need to hold in the reset button so it resets to factory defaults.
On the base of your 604 there is a sliding button, slide it away from the built in speaker.
Looking at the back of the 604 the left pannel has 04 SERIES on it, it will slide up while holding the sliding button.
You will see at the top a hole in the black which is gold and has reset written beside it, hold it in for 15 seconds and that will reset it.

No power going into my archos 604

If the unit was dropped, you may have to replace the battery. The batteries for those units are lithium-ion-polymer and are somewhat fragile when dropped. The other possible reason it is not working is that the shock form the drop has "bricked" or killed your unit's internal circuitry. I would also try charging it with another USB connection as the USB connection you are using may not be powerful enough to charge the unit. For more detailed help you can try the forums at There are many technical experts concerning Archos Units at that forum.
