How do fix my Archos 605 after resettin using factory option


Well If a white screen shows up when you turn it on, select format. Wait for it to finish, then when it asks for a update file, plug it in to the computer and copy the .aos update file to the archos. Don't put it in a folder, just put it the root, (the folder that has the folders for music, video, flash, etc.) Unplug it and the archos should recognize it and proceed with the firmware update.

The Updates can be downloaded here:

for 20GB-160GB

or for the 4GB

My Archos 605 wifi will not accept mpeg4 files


Do not use windows media player. Go to my computer and then open the archos icon or in some cases words that have the name you named it or a605.Then go into the harddrive from there go to videos and drag and drop your videos into the folder inside the video folder or just drag and drop it. If it is on system settings Pc Hard Drive or any other setting other than windows mmedia device you have to manually update your abclibrary.

Archos 605 not being recognized


I think most of the problems come from the fact the archos unit gets to hot, leaving it plugged into the docking station for charging and downloads does not help. Try leaving it to cool down overnight then plug it in next day. My PC recognized it as A605 straightaway. My pc is still in hard drive mode and when plugged into the pc it recognizes it as an Archos A605 unit and can be adressed as normal.

Archos 605 Recovery code 108


In order to fix this issue, we are going to need to force the unit into a
recovery application. In order to do this please make sure that the unit is
completely shut off. When the unit is off, you are going to want to press and
hold the TV/LCD button and the power button at the same time until a recovery
code 101 pops onto the screen. As soon as you see this, let the buttons go.
Once you got this screen up, you are going to want to repair the operating
system by arrowing down and clicking repair. After this is done it is going
to ask you to connect your device to the computer and install an update file.
In order to do this, you are going to want to go to www.archos.com and go to
downloads. You are going to want to download the firmware for your unit.
After the firmware is saved to your desktop, plug the unit into the computer
and open up "My computer" and you should see the Archos in the list
of drives.
Your going to want to copy the firmware onto the root directory and not in
any file folders. Once the firmware is on the Root directory, go ahead and
unplug the unit from the computer. It should still say Please plug your
device into the computer and install an update file. Click OK. After this is
done, it is going to tell you to please connect DC or USB in to continue with
the update. Go ahead and let the unit install and reboot. After this is
done, you should be able to use the unit properly. If the unit still does not
work properly, we are going to have to create an RMA for the Archos. If you
need anything else, Please feel free to contact us via Email or at
877.300.8879.
