Question about Archos 504 500870 Digital Media Player
I know how to fix the problem if only I could find the icon for my archos 504 in My Computer, but since it is in recovery mode, there is no icon. I've tried using windows explorer, but I still can't find it
I had the same problem and manage to solve it. You need to do the following
a. go to Archos website and download latest firmware and save on your pc
b. turn on 504 and select repair - unit not connected to pcm you will see a screen where you wil be prompted to press DONE (but DONT press it yet!!!!)
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it (it will recognize it this time)
d. copy firmware from pc and paste it to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. now when the device restarts you just select Repair and that should work. :)

Try my suggestion to "recovery code 4" error. It should work, too.

In case of repair disk is selected :
For the first step you have to go on our website, and download the latest firmware update for your product.
