Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player
I recently got on the internet on my archos 605 model and it started making this beeping noise so i got off the internet and it had deleted all of my songs and made it where i couldnt see my videos i did reset it and now it just shows the archos entertainment your way screen but every once in a while it will pop up a white screen that asks if i want to repair it format it or do nothing i tried all three of these and it just stays on the entertainment your way screen and pops the white up again
Once you format your device it wipes out most of the information on your archos including the Firmware. You need to connect your archos to your computer and download the firmware from the main Archos site. Copy the firmware to your device. Diconnect the device from your computer using the safe disconnect feature. When your archos restarts it will either automatically recognize the new firmware and update itself or it will bring up the repair screen. One version of this screen has the options "do nothing", "repair device", or "format". Choose repair device. This will start the update sequence.
The other version of the white screen will say your system is damaged and show the options "done" or "repair device". Again select repair device and the update sequence will start. You may have to do this more than once in a repair session.
I have had to do this to my own device several times so save a copy of the firmware and your plugins on your computer to download back to the device if you have to do this again. Hopefully the next Archos update will take care of these annoying issues
I hope this helps!
