Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Out of control!

Whenever I turn on the unit, the different menu options are selected by themselves at rapid speeds as though the right direction button is being held in place. Also, when playing, it doesn't skip ahead or track so it cannot be the button being held down phisically however, little black flasing squares appear accross the screen.
Help me top experts, you're my only hope...Thanks.

My iriver stops then comes on with warped music, then stops again. Now although I know it's charged it will not turn on... Just out of warranty too.


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this. What you are trying to say in your request is that your MP3 player stops playing, then comes on for a short period of time with defective music, then cuts off again. There could be a number of causes here. We can eliminate the "battery needs charging" cause because you said that the battery is already charged. But the battery itself may be defective. If that's the case, you will need to install a new battery into your device. Reply back and I will try my best to locate where you find a battery for this product. Another cause to take into consideration is the music file that you are playing. The music files that the iriver 150 supports are: MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC & ASF. The music file you that was currently playing may not be supported by this device or is corrupted. If so, you need to delete this file immediately. To delete a file, press and hold the > (directional right) button to display the Options menu. Select Delete File to delete the selected file. You can also go to your file manager and manually delete files. On the main menu screen, press the directional up or down buttons and selcet the File Manager, then press the OK button. Next, press the directional up or down buttons again to select either Internal or External Memory, whichever type of memory your file is under. If you do not know what Internal or External Memory is, Internal memory is the memory in your hard drive. External Memory is portable memory for example a Micro SD card, that can be taken out. In the file folder list, press the directional buttons to select your folder or subfolder if you have created one. Once you've done that, press and hold the > (directional right) button to confirm the deletion process. If you are still having problems, try changing the settings for the backlight or auto power. To do this, go to your main menu and select the Settings que. The select either the Display or Timer options. If you selected the Display option, select Backlight and change the time to your desired setting. If you selected the Timer option, select Auto Power and change this setting to off. If that doesn't solve your issue, reply back and and I'll see what else to do. I hope these options get your music device back up and running. If you have any questions, comments or concerns; reply back to this website. Thank you for taking the time and oppurtunity to read this solution and choose FixYa as you one-stop solution spot to answer all your problems. Thank you and have a good day, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are reading this.

I have my coby MP 600 MP3 player, but one day i make a scan and after when i start it i can not acces with anything, it posts a message error: file system error. please help me to solve this problem. Thank...


It sounds like the Coby operating system is corrupted.

I'm going to recommend you try the following procedure with one catch; I'm assuming you can turn the unit on and at least get a menu. If not this procedure isn't going to work.

NOTE: The following procedure will erase everything on your Coby so be aware!

Essentially, we're going to reformat the unit using Coby's own format routine.

1. Power Unit On
2. Scroll through your main menu going to your right. From "Music" ---> to "Settings"
3. Under "Settings" you will have another menu. Look at the bottom choice called "Sys Tools"
4. Select "Sys Tools" and you will have a series of options, choose the second option "Format"
5. Select "Format" and follow the prompts
6. Wait for the routine to complete
7. Power unit down
8. Power unit back up and reconnect to PC
9. Use Windows Explorer or My Computer to see if the unit is recognized, and it should be at this point.
10. You should be set

For some reason, the operating system for the Coby gets corrupted and this is the only way I know to fix it short of sending the unit in for repair, which isn't an option really. (Cheaper to buy a new one)

Hope this helps you or anyone else that has unexplainable problems connecting to the Coby MP-610 / MP-620.

Is it possible to back up just a few seconds when listening to a book on an ipod 2g? If so, how? When I push the back button, it starts clear back at the beginning of the chapter.


Hello,

If you play audiobooks on the iPod like any other type of audio file, but audiobooks (again, bookmarkable files), give you an extra option: go to the iPod’s Settings menu and select Audiobooks; this lets you choose a different speed for the playback. You can choose Faster or Slower if you want to change the speed of a droll or hyper reader; this plays the file back at a different speed, without changing the voice. You’ll notice some distortion, but in most cases this is not a problem.
You can also make this change as you’re listening to an audiobook. After it starts playing, press the Select button three times. Run your finger around the scroll wheel clockwise to change the speed to Faster; scroll the other way to return to Normal, or to change to Slower.

Take care.

Song List Help


Alex, I'm going to attempt to help here.

After you select "All Songs" you're saying that it simply shows the previous song that was played and starts that one right?

A couple of things, normally the unit doesn't play anything by default when turned on. Usually it will allow you to select from the menu and if you don't make a selection at this point and attempt to back up, sometimes it will start playing the last song used.

Here's a couple of work arounds, first, you can try to use the smaller silver button (above left of large dial), press it and move the menu back to your options or choices such as Artists, Playlists, etc. and select something different that way (this is while the current song is playing).

Another possible solution is to select from the menu either "Artists" or "Browser" and choose another file.

This unit can demonstrate weird behavior at times and like anything else, the more you mess around with it, the more you'll figure out its quirks.

Hope this helps Alex.

Recovery Mode


Hi! I think you should try this (i've already tried it and it works):
1- Unplug your Zen from your Computer.
2-Turn off your Zen (if you can't do it, press the "Reset" button)
3- BEFORE turning on your Zen, press your "Play" button and hold it while you turn on.
4-When a format menu appears, select the "Format All" option (you'll loose all your Zen data).
5-When the format menu reapears, select the "Reboot" option and listo! You have your Zen as new and should not have problem. Good luck!

Can't remove music


Go into settings, select mode, then select msc. When in this mode you can look at the player's drive, by going into my computer, then selecting the player. In this mode you can transfer music back and forth from computer to player, in both directions. MTP mode is only used with Microsoft Media Player. If you stick with msc mode, and browsing the unit as a drive, you can't go wrong.
