Re: i need help

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!

You need to plug your Archos into your pc and explore the drive.
Copy the plugin from your pc to the root of the Archos.
The Archos should say that it's found software and start installing.
