Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Won't play anything on youtube.

My archos 605 wifi isn't playing anything on youtube anymore. I had it working before, but it stopped for some reason. I use google video to look for videos as well, and when I use the "watch video here" option it opens just a black box. It never loads. When I go to youtube it tells me that I don't have the latest version of flash, or I have javascript off. I know that this thing only uses Flash 7, but the Archos is SUPPOSED to work with youtube. Very specifically even. Is there something that I can do to get it working again? (without resetting th system?)

    I figured it out. (Or accidentally fixed it) First I reset the temp files

    Main menu>System>Repair and Formating Tools> Clear temporary system files and cashe
    This didn't erase any of my content... though I did lose my extra favorites links.

    Then I happened to open the browser and check the settings there. I noticed that "flash content" was disabled. I fixed that, and it works. (As sad as it sounds, I don't think I needed to erase the temp files. But it works nonetheless.)

    Why doesnt my music and videos play on my myspace page? Youtube works but when I visit a myspace page it says I need to either "download the latest flash player or I have javascript turned off". Ive tried downloading the latest flash player but it still doesnt work.

SOURCE: Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media

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.

SOURCE: 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!

Cannot connect UPnP


Hi, No expert but how I got UPnP to work fully on Archos 605 WiFi. WMP11 found the 605 and Authorized but the 605 never listed my PC under UPnp devices. Others on www seem to find WMP tricky so I gave up, I had Nero Home UPnp & Also Roxio Media (Came with blackberry) both Served UPnP to 605, 605 could see both listed under UPnP in Video, Audio & Photos. Could play all apart from Video! (Despite being able to play direct through File/Netwrok Browser) Anyway assumed Archos problem if these two did not work proplerly with Video. In desperation tried TVersity (Others talk about it a lot). All worked immediately, Video & all. So I would try this first if your have any sort of problems.

Archos 605 WiFi "Cannot play video! Please Check"...


This problem seems to occur when the device overheats. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but all my videos set at 720 by 480 wont play when the device is left running for a long period of time. The smaller video files, however, still play. I think it deals with the amount of system resources required for such files to play. If you turn the device off completely by going to menu, power, and turn off device, and leave it sit for 30 minutes, all files should play properly when you turn it back on.

As a suggestion, DO NOT leave your Archos powered on and on the dvr station. This causes the device to constantly run, and if you havent noticed the Archos operates at an extremely high temperature.
