Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player
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.)

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.

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!

i have the same problem. Hopefully archos stops working on android for a sec and comes back to update the 605. Although for me, megavideo works on firmware 188.8.131.52. On others i get the F9 icon or "video can't stream, please check" - or something like that
