I suspect it is because the drive letter it is attaching itself to on your PC is already taken. When you stop the device to remove the useb cable, it will show you what drive letter it is attaching itself to. In my computer, check that this drive is already taken and disconect. Now try re connecting your Archos and it shoud appear in My Computer. Hope this helps

Check device manager and verify that it is showing up in there. Also, have you checked My Computer?

Archos 404 does not work at all since using Archos Docking Adaptor


You should try to only chare your Archos only when it is completely dead and charge it fully then the battery will be regular

Archos 404 not charging


Dont use the USB to charge the 404. Use a wall charger that accepts USB. Wally world (Walmart) has one for 15 dollars that has 2 USB ports. It works for me. Also the docking station will charge the 404 in no time at all. It's 80 dollars. Make sure you get the generation 4 unit

Leave it to charge for 2 hours just in case there isn't enough power for it to boot up properly until it has an initial charge.

Usb cable semi-working...


Wiggle the cable at the device to get a good connection. Does your USB port support other devices? Plug into another port and see if this solves the problem.
