Question about Archos Gmini 400 (20 GB) Digital Media Player
SOURCE: File Allocation Table corrupted
I got rid of the problem on my own, please read below how I solved it.
Basically, the partition of hard drive was still there but with corrupted data about its files indexes. With a free HDD rescue tool I was able to identify the partition and fix the problems regarding its corrupted indexes (file allocation table and toc).
After fixing the problem, the device became fully working and there's no data loss.

SOURCE: archos 604 wifi corrupted
Did you try ?
- Using the reset button located under the battery?
- Holding down the LCD button as you press POWER to start up the unit and trying one of the recovery options?

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 !!!
