Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player
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.
