Recovery code 2 / system is damaged. would you like to recover it ? No Repair Format Disk Any body have any ideas ?


hey, did you sort this out? If so, how?cause I have the exact same problem...If I manage to be fast enough to press the button to "recover" or "format" before the screen freezes then it just goes into recovery for ages but accomplishes nothing. My computer doesn't recognize my archos so oI can't upload anything or update anything.?????

I have archos 504 160 gb when it turn on i have message (recovery code 4) would you like to recover your system ? no - repair disk - format disk when i push no no thing action . when push repair or...


This is a recovery mode, and this menu allows you to:

 

-Format your hard drive
-Restore your system

 

In case of repair disk is selected :

 

For the first step you have to go on our website, and download the latest firmware update for your product.

 

Plug your Archos 504/604 on the computer and copy the firmware previously downloaded at the root of your device.

 

Disconnect your device as usual, and select done on the screen.

You have to plug the dc adaptor to update successfully, press a button to reboot your device.here is the web address  http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/updates.html?country=us&lang=en&#firm

Recovery code 101


A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 5 or 7:
1- Plug the unit to you computer via the USB cable.
2- The unit should start automatically and open the following page:
3- From the recovery console (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the volume control on the right of the unit (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" press the on and off button, shortly to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" but it is already plugged from point 1 - DO NOT press anything anymore on the Archos
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 5 or 7
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the USB cable until the process is finished
4- when done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!

Archos 400 won't turn on (error code 3)


I hard tried the same thing to transfer a 6.7GB file to another computer.I had formated the drive as an NTFS drive. when i turned archos back on, it failed to turn on give me error code. but for some reason it asked me to do a recovery. I remember i had seen some recovery files in my archos device saved (zipped file packages). And when it was doing the recovery i noticed it was reading the zipped files for recovery purpose. After the recovery, i did not see the files anymore in the device. So if i do the same thing again (format as ntfs) i might not be able to recover it back again.

Recovery code 4 on archos 504


I had the same problem and manage to solve it. You need to do the following

a. go to Archos website and download latest firmware and save on your pc
b. turn on 504 and select repair - unit not connected to pc
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it
d. copy firmware from pc and past to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. that should work. I've spent the best part of 10 hours looking for a solution to the dreaded recovery code 4. The problem is a corrupt os. I hope you're as lucky as me.
I still have a problem with mine though...a screen that blink constantly.
