Question about Archos AV400 Digital Media Player
If it is a av400 series
plug it into the computer and attempt to format it.
If it fails its a very high probability the hard drive has failed.
there is a slight possibility its the ribbon cable that connects the drive to the main board or the controller in the archos so I would check the drive after removal and prior to buying a new one.
this can be done in a usb caddy or with a 3.5" to 2.5" converter (about $5 on ebay) letting you put the drive in a PC for testing.
If its above 40gb any 2.5" laptop drive upto 100gb can be fitted.
If its a 20gb you need a single platter 1.8" ata drive
any further questions just ask
