Recovery (code 104)


From Archos' support website FAQ:

When I switch on my Archos device, the following message is displayed: "Would you like to recover your system?" What does it mean and what should I do?


You are on the recovery mode screen. It means that your hard drive has been damaged and must be repaired or formatted.
With this system recovery mode, you will have to select between "Repair Disk" and "Format Disk".
Start by selecting "Repair Disk" and follow the instructions displayed on the screen. See the full PDF manual (available on the Archos web site) on how to use the Repair and Format options.

If repairing the disk did not work, try formatting the disk by selecting "Format Disk". Note that the formatting will erase all data.

If you still cannot restart your Archos after trying a system recovery, you should contact Archos technical support.

Hi i have a archos 405 and it goes to recovery code 102 and will not repair or format disk any ideas on what to try?


Iv had this go to your Archos and do RECOVERY Then go to your computer load the Archos programe. Go to you archos account and find the updates for your Archos. Right click and SAVE TO YOUR COMPUTER NAME IT Archos 1..Do the same with the secound and third Updates if there are anymore.
Now you will need to see your Saved program which should be on your desktop and your Archos in your MY COMPUTER Reduce both these so you can see them .
Nearly there
Go to my computer Drag and drop the First programe Archos 1 onto the Archos in My Computer Go to your Archos and click OK
THIS WILL TAKE UP TO 3 - 4 MINS TO DOWNLOAD

Archos 605 wife (wife firmware)


If you chose any of these options already your Os is gone.. 
try this solution 
I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed 
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in to Pc before starting the process.
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* 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 it 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, it will shut off. Turn it back on and  your archos will be back to normal
