I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it These are the steps i followed
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc
* When the white screen comes up do format
* Wait until all done then put the firmware in to the root sector of the Archos
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug in back to pc
it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start
Update you will see the progress bar moving wait until it is all done
and it will shut off. Turn it back on Your archos will be back to normal.
When you go to download from Archos site it will explain how to download depending upon how your device pops up on your Pc.
Hope this helps
Remove your memory card and restart your archos, when it asks if you want to repair blahblah... just keep pressing the cross till it loads as normal with the sd card 'out', this should work, to stop it happening in the future format your memory card 'sd' with your archos once it has started. Hope that helps!
If you chose any of these options already your Os is gone..

recovery code 102 screen - this error message means the the hard disk has failed - I am guessing that the unit has been dropped at some point - Sorry but it back to Archos - The UK number is 0207 949 0115
This is generally due to failed firmware updates, etc....here is something to try that has worked for some others: 1. connect the archos to the PC 2. click on repair 3. click on
done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive
in your windows (be patiant it takes some time) 4. once you see the drive, open it and make sure the System folder is empty, if not delete the file that exists there. 5. download firmware from archos website and put the firmware update file directly on the root of the archos drive 6. click repair again on the archos and done. I've been told this does not always work on the first attempt, so give it a couple of tries if the first attempt fails.
1. Download the latest firmware from Archos 2. Format the drive on your player 3. Connect the A605 to your computer using the USB lead 4.
Copy the new firmware the A605's root folder (Drive X: on your PC or whatever letter was assigned to your Archos 5. Click ok and you are finished
