Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

2 Answers

Archos seems to have Bricked itself

I had transferred files to it, Unplugged it, then plugged it back in to transfer additional files and now it will not transition past the "Archos Entertainment Your Way screen"

The Screen will flicker as if to move on but then nothing happens.

    Will this erase all the data originally in the archos? Will it erase all my songs, videos etc.? Or will it just come back to normal?

(i found someone clames that he solved this problem, so try it)

I faced the same problem Error code 108 / 102 and i resolved it on my own. The problem occurs if the OS got corroupted,
Follow the steps.
First download the lastest Firmware ( OS-(firmware_a605.aos)) from the ARCHOS website.
Plug your device to your PC
Power down the unit completely, While off hold down the Power and TV/LCD button. This will bring up again the screen with 3 options.
1) No
2) Repair
3) Formate Disk
choose the Repair option, wait for 5 mins then you can see your device detected in the PC.
copy the OS .aos file downloaded from ARCHOS website to the root of the device not in any folders.
In your device now choose the option done. It will update the new OS and it will restart autoatically.
Try it if its not working come bak to me,
All the Best.

Do you have a wireless network that serves both your tablet and computer? If so, you can download a wifi transfer program to you tablet eg. Wifi File Transfer Pro, and follow easy to use instructions.
You'll just have to use a web browser on your desktop to access the files on your tablet. The free version has a limit on size that can be transferred though.
Other than that, just copy the video to your sd card on the tablet and get a usb adapter to plug the sd card to your pc and transfer away.

How do I download pictures to my Archos 604 wifi

Use Windows media center as a go between if you have the capability. I would not expect that much functionality from the Archos. The extra step will save time in the long run. There is a usb port on the DVR station. Haven't really tried to utilize it, yet. It does recognize a thumb drive when plugged in. I just wouldn't expect you will get the same ease of operation as using media ctr.

Transfer file to Archos 5 using usb port on DVR Station Dock

On your Archos 5 go into tools -> Files and you should have two Archos 5 tabs. Change one to your USB stick and the other to the Archos 5 and copy and paste. I have not tested this, but this should work.  Good Luck.

    Archos 605 doesn't recognize my music files

    from another forum on this site

    Thanks and credit to eyez12 - the 2nd option below worked for me

    try going to menu, settings, system, and then clicking the update ARCLibrary button, that was all it took for me.
    if that doesn't work then go to repair and formatting tools and click "clear temp system files and cache"

    Dvd transfer

    Download Magic Video Converter from and change the video to WMP Standard 8. You don't need 1.25 GB vids for the archos, it's too high a quality for such a small screen.

    Archos 605 copying films from DVD to the player

    If change the setting of the 605 to "hard disk" then a PC sees the 605 as a hard disc when connected using the usb lead. You can then copy and paste files directly to the 605..
