I had the same problem using my Archos 605 Wifi and Windows 7. Similar to one of the other posts, I went to Device Manager and saw the yellow yield sign/exclamation point. Per the advice above, I tried to update the driver, but Win7 came back and said the best driver was installed. So I went ahead and uninstalled the Archos device, unplugged it from my PC, then plugged it back in. Win7 identified it as a new device, installed it, and I was back in business.
My primary reason for wanting this problem fixed was that I use Amazon's Video on Demand software (Unbox) on my PC and want to copy portable versions of movies and TV shows onto my Archos 605 wifi for long plane rides. Now Win7 recognizes my Archos device and the Amazon Unbox software can see it to transfer movies.

Very very important last step: If your Archos is still not being recognized after following the above steps, unplug the USB cable for a few seconds then reinsert making sure it's all the way in. The Archos screen will ask if you want to enable USB. Of course you do. Then you'll be back in business

I had the same problem with my Archos 605 and here's how I fixed it....
Right click on My Computer, then click on Properties. Under the Hardware tab click on Device Manager. My Archos was shown under Portable Devices but with an exclamation point next to it. I right clicked on Archos 605 wifi and then clicked on Update Driver. This updated the MTP driver and now everything is working fine.

I called tech support and they had a simple fix for me. You need to change the way the Archos is recognized as a USB device from a Windows Media Device to a hard drive. You can change this setting under Settings > System. This fixed the problem for me, but I think you miss out on some functionality by not using the Archos as a Window Media Device, particularly being able to use protected content.

Hay everyone, i had the same problem with am Archos 5 250Gb "USB device not recognized" i think the main problem was that its Windows i was using at the time so the easy fix is install Ubuntu (Linux) ether as a small partition on your HDD or the live disk, plug in the usb hook it up to the Archos and it just works perfectly. www.ubuntu.com just download and burn the iso easy as that.

Turn off your archos and press the resset button right below the usb hook up I did this and it helped, then I went to settings(in my archos) system and then to repair and cleared the cache and such it helped solve alot of problems
