Archos 605 Wifi . Can't Write To Drive

A couple of months ago a got my 605 wifi. Well today I reinstalled windows xp professional on my computer. And during the installation I was prompted to delete partitions on my hard drives and format them to install windows on. Well I forgot my archos was connected and accidentally deleted the partition on it. After i realized what i had done, I immediately unplugged my device..and it seemed to be ok..and **ne of the data was lost. But after the device restarted the white screen came up and told me my archos was damaged..so I selected repair. I got back into the archos and found all my videos were gone..but then I looked in my music and could see the artists and songs.but it wouldn't play them.said they were corrupted..so i went to system and went to repair utilities,then formatted it and did a full reinitialization. Then did a online firmware update. At first my computer wouldn't recognize the device..I figured this was just because I reinstalled windows..but when the drive popped up under my computer..I could open it..but ** folders appeared..and it would **t let me make a new folder or write any data to the drive. I then went under hard drive mode on my archos and found that the folders indeed still existed..all the ones that came with the device..but my computer could **t read my archos for some reason..can anyone please help?

Make sure when you format archos its in file system fat32. I can only assume you need check folder permissions, which is why you cannot write to drive.

Archos 605 wifi broken screen


I have a similar problem. I received my Archos 605 two weeks ago and thought the product was awesome. However, I had to call customer service for the plug-ins I was supposed to receive free. I was dropped twice after waiting for 12 - 15 minutes each time. On my third call, I finally received customer service after waiting an additional 12 minutes. The woman was very nice where she finally got me 6 of the 7 the rebate specified.

Today, 09/14/09, I had to call Archos for the broken screen which was a 20 minute wait. It is NOT under warranty and will cost me $155.00 plus shipping. I paid $154.99 total for the unit brand new.

Customer service stated sorry. DO NOT PURCHASE AN ARCHOS -- BY A IPOD. I HAVE LEARNED!

    Archos not seen by pc


    This can happen to any external drive on a pc. If the Archos is set to PC Hard Drive mode, then plug it into you PC and click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
    In the console tree, click Disk Management.
    You can now allocate a drive letter to the Archos.
    If you cannot see your Archos in this window, then you may have a dodgey usb cable.

    Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player Problem: Archos 605 Recovery code 108


    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.
