Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I can't download anything

I received this gift several months ago and have been unable to download anything (movies, music). I need serious help! Please understand I am computer challenged. I need some one to spell it out for me. The manual sucks. It only shows how to set the cables but nothing about what to do after.

1. You need to connect to the Internet. The easist way to do this is find an open wireless connection, like at a cafe or at someone's home whom you know.

2. Once you know you're in range of a connection, click on the Portal or the Web icon on the display.

3. When you click on the Web icon, you may be asked to buy the Opera browser to surf the internet. I never was able to buy the browser using my 605, even after registering it online. I used my PC to buy the plug-in online and then downloaded it to the 605 using the USB connection. Follow the instructions after you buy the Opera browser from Archos's web site -- they were clear and simple on how to install the Opera browser onto the device.

4. If you instead choose to click on the Portal icon, you will then see the 605 display some boxes indicating it has detected some wireless connection(s) and then it asks you if you want to see the list of connection(s). View the list and choose the connection you want to connect to. (Note: If you've downloaded and installed the Opera browser, you will see this message, too; if you haven't, you will see the screen that has a button you can click to "buy it now." As I said, I never got that to work -- and I tried a few different connections.)

5. ONce you've chosen a connection, if it is password protected, the 605 will ask you for the password. Enter it using the keyboard that will pop up. If it is not password protected, you should be able to jump on the connection.

6. Then, if you clicked the Portal icon, you'll see some buttons to press to view content. Free stuff to choose from, some of it is good.

That's it. Anyone else chime in with corrections and clarifications!

MP3 Rocket. --- I get the follow error message. They download cannot be completed at this time. The MP3 rocket team is working to resolve the issue. I have deleted and reinstalled java and MP3 Rocket...

MP3 Rocket is a P2P downloader (peer to peer) many sites like this are being shut down by the US Government.

Do you use it for music or video downloading.

You can download almost anything in music from

There are many video downloaders available. Just Google "Video Downloader" read the description to find out which one fits your need.

On your PC there are lots of ways of downloading music, videos and software. The easiest is known as torrent downloading. You will need a "Bit torrent client" like uTorrent.

After installing your client, just Google what you are looking for with the word torrent after it.(ie.: Friday the 13th movie torrent) You will get a listing of all of the sites that have the movie "Friday the 13th". The most recommended sites would include Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents and there are many more.

I'm trying to sign in to my e mail account .

Dear Friend,

Suspension pretty much means you are finished with that Yahoo account although you can continue to use the email address. You can appeal but that is rarely successful, You might be best to forget it and start over again with a new account.Yahoo doesn\'t play favorites, it doesn\'t matter if you have been a member for day, a week,a month or years or are a top contributor the same rules apply to everyone. It also doesn\'t seem to matter the number of violations but more the severity or perceived severity of the violations. Yahoo takes a dim view of SPAM, bigotry, ****, insulting other members,racism, anything that even borders on illegal such as drugs even soft drugs, downloading movies, music programs etc. or links to that kind of stuff Any of that can mean a speedy exit.
It is also a serious violation to have more than one Yahoo account. It is considered to be cheating and If you do you could be suspended.

Anyway you have an Option of Appeal

Note:When appealing be polite, to the point, and as brief as possible.

Thanks for Using FixYa
