When you are connected to a Windows® network, you can browse the shared folders of other computers in the network, using the Archos File Browser. From the Home Screen, select the Browser icon. Once in the browser, select ‘Network’. Your device will search for other computers in the Windows® network and you can start browsing their shared contents.
Using the Archos double browser, you will be able to transfer files from a computer onto your device, or transfer files from your device onto a computer’s write-enabled shared folder.
You may have a bad sector on the HDD where those files has been saved. Please check my other fix responses to be able to format your HDD and reinstall the firmware version 2.1 which is the latest one right now. I recommend after the HDD formatted do a disk repaire using Windows. Keep it mind you will lose all the contents and plugins from loaded to the device you need to decide which one is more important saving the Archos or losing the contends. If you be play it safe i'd say send it to archos and have them replace the HDD it costs about 150-170 $ but they will be able to put your plugins back in. and you will have 3 months warrant on their fix.
hi there once you conect your archos to the computer and you`ve opened your music file it`s just a case of drag n drop them into it(easy) as long as there mp3 format (if not but you can change your itune`s to convert them into mp3 format)as for films archos have some software you can buy to convert to the right format(i use :1 click dvd to divx avi :, :movie 2 mem card: . software) you can download it free from u torrent, your`ll have to read how to work it tho, and it couldbe a bit tricky for a tech idiot (as you put it) good luck.
Are you sure the battery is charged? If so, try detach and retach the battery. Also try to attach to your computer via the usb cable and the 604 should turn on by itself, if nothing happens you need to send back to Archos for repair.
Once you have downloaded the file to your PC simply connect your archos to your pc using USB cable provided, select PC hard drive mode, and simply copy or drag and drop from one destination to the other. Your Archos usually appears as J:Archos604WiFi if you have a built in card reader if not it may appear as an earlier letter in the alphabet.
