  1. Open the back panel of Archos with a tiny screwdriver. There are two screws on the bottom and one on the side. Remove these and the back pops right off.
  2. You will see the battery sitting on top of hard drive. If you remove the hard drive you will notice the battery is soldered right on to the hard drive. You don't need to do this though.
  3. Clip the black and red wire to remove the old battery. Clip towards the top of the battery to leave plenty of wiring to work with.
  4. With a wire cutter, strip a small amount of tubing from the ends of both wires.
  5. Join the wiring of the new battery (which can be found online for under $20, including shipping) to the wiring of the old one by twisting the ends together.
  6. Pop the back on and screw it down. Enjoy

My Archos Gmini XS200 does not fully charge any more. Can I change the battery if so how?


ebay have ads for replacements.

remove the back cover by taking out the 4 screws , fold out the hard drive unit and you will see the battery under it.

unsolder the two wires - positive and negative- ( red and black )
solder on the new battery wires in the correct place and re assemble unit .

Gmini hard disk reading problems


My Gmini XS202s did this twice both time cause the battery went flat while moving files across (I should always charge device while connecting to PC)

First time I reformatted device as FAT32 using fdisk (Windows formatting tool should do same)

Then downloaded latest AOS and copied to root directory. [get AOS from http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/updates.html?country=gb&lang=en]

second time I ran mkdosfs /media/disk (disk was mount point for gmini). This seemed to fix the device and I lost about 20 files. but better than reformat.

Gmini XS 202s wont turn on properly....


I heard of that problem, it could be your charger circuit and it could be your battery. There's a interesting forum post on this at www.newmp3technology.com: http://www.newmp3technology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=700


But here's something else: I'll buy your xs202s if you want.. :)
For a reasonable defect-price.
I have one but the display is broken.

Had no luck trying to find that obscure 2" 128x128 backlit greyscale korean display in the IC-market here in Europe.

Gmini 402 camcorder freeze/format


If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini 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. ? Quit all running applications. ? Properly connect the Gmini 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. 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 from your computer. 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.
