As long as you replace the hard drive with the same exact one, it should be possible. You can contact the manufacturer with the below options and they can assist you in getting a new drive.

Wont install to computer


On the Archos:
In the settings menu from the front screen, set your Archos to 'PC Hard Drive' instead of Windows Media Player.
If it doesn't show as an external hard drive when you plug it into your pc, do this....

On the pc:
Go to Start\run, type diskmgmt.msc and click ok to take you into Disk Management.
Your Archos should show as a drive in here and you can associate your new drive with a drive letter.

If you cannot see your Archos in this windowafter you've set it to 'PC Hard Drive' on the Archos, then you may have a dodgy usb cable.

Hope this helps......

DOWNLOADING TO MEDIA PLAYER


1st of all, your Archos needs to be set to PC Hard Drive mode in the settings.
Then when you plug it into your pc, it will just show as a new drive.
You can then simply drag and drop movies, music, flash games, files etc.
The Archos accepts avi files with mp3 sound, however if you purchase the package which allows you to watch DVD's onthe Archos, then you also have a whole load of codec's which means it accepts Real Player files, Dolby Surround sound, you can copy 4.7 gb dvd's straight to it and much more.
