That is the reason why you got IO error! that means your av700 hd may be in need to be changed.
Best thing to do is trying format again, if you cannot format again from av700 you need to remove AV700 drive and change it.

File system error: FAT is corrupted


Your hard disk on your media player is corrupted which also does happen on a normal PC/Laptop. To fix it, use windows explorer -> right click on your mouse againt the media player drive -> select properties -> select 'Tools' tab -> select Error checking / Check now -> Tick on 'automatically fix file system errors and recommended also 'scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors' -> Start.
At this point, you may also need to restart your PC/LAPTOP and then be patient as 120GB is a fairly large drive to repair! Once the FAT has been repaired, depending on the corruptions, you may need to replace some songs, video, photos or other files.
ps. the other 'drastic' option is of course to reformat the whole Media driver drive !!!

Archos AV700 I/O Error


Hi,

Offhand, I would suspect that the remaining files were somehow corrupted. Is it possible for you to verify those files using the external HD and a PC?

Either that or the format of the Archos AV700 was not that "clean" and would require a redo.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

When i switch on my archos 405 2gb it comes recovery code 102. it gives three options ''no'' ''repair'' and ''format''. i clicked on repair but it restarts and it comes the same thing again. What am i...


I think it means 'File system FAT error'. Use the solution above by IPOD tech for reformatting the hard disk. It should be OK. I used the solution to reformat my archos7 last night, and it is working fine.

Gmini hard disk reading problems


My Gmini XS202s did this twice both time cause the battery went flat while moving files across (I should always charge device while connecting to PC)

First time I reformatted device as FAT32 using fdisk (Windows formatting tool should do same)

Then downloaded latest AOS and copied to root directory. [get AOS from http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/updates.html?country=gb&lang=en]

second time I ran mkdosfs /media/disk (disk was mount point for gmini). This seemed to fix the device and I lost about 20 files. but better than reformat.

Recovery mode


For those with the 4 GB model, try removing the SD card and powering completely off, without selecting any of the recovery options.  You will probably get prompted to recover when the device boots, click OK to recover - do not reinsert the SD card.  Perform a complete power off and power on cycle without the SD card.  If this works, reinsert the SD card and perform a power off/power on cycle.  If it prompts you to recover the system, the SD card is bad (the data can probably be read by the device after it has restarted, but will continue to cause the recovery mode).  Note that reformatting the card in the device does not seem to resolve the issue.  Try reformatting the card in a PC or digital camera (this option worked for me).

Bad track error. songs arent deleting after reformatting and resetting multiple amounts of times.


There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

How dom i reformat it


you need to format your mp3 by clicking the option button in your mp3. do not reformat in computer because it has a different system. after reformatting you need to download the sonique stage this will serve as your player in your pc and automatically transfers the music files in your mp3 once insert this into usb port. hoping that this will help you

Archos 704 Wifi - does not play AVI file until its full lentgh


I had the same issue.
The size of the AVI cannot exceed 1gb or the end of the movie will never play.

I had a movie that was 1,7gb. 2 hrs and 15 seconds.
The Archos recognized this as a 1.7gb file and 2:00:15 long.
As soon as the movie started, the time line bar at the bottom of the screen went from 2:00:15 to 1:10:25. Basically, it cut off the last 50 minutes of the movie.

I simply divide the movie into 1gb chunks.

I decrypt the DVD to the computer
Use Nero Recode to convert it to and MP4. Divide the movie into 1gb chunks and Maximize the Volume.
Use SUPER to convert it to an AVI / MPEG-4 / MP3.
Copy this to the Video folder of the Archos.

This is simply something that Archos does not want to admit is an issue. They want you to purchase the Cinema plugin.

If the unit detects any form of Hard Drive Error it asks you to format the drive. Connect the unit to your PC and run ScanDisk or DOS Chkdsk on the drive. Will help to rectify any issues with the FAT. Windows XP & 2000 Running Check Disk Utility (ChkDsk) ? HARD DRIVE mode only If you still have problems with the file system on your AV 500 you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk). Do the following; ? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the AV 500. ? Quit all running applications. ? Properly connect the AV 500 to your computer ? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted. ? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. ? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f . Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your AV 500. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors. ? Be patient, this may take a while. ? When finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the AV 500 from your computer. Now try using the device. DO NOT try to defrag the drive. Let us know how you get on.
