Base from the description of your problem , what we can do here first is to connect the player to your computer and once its recognize by the computer check if its listed under MYCOMPUTER as a removable drive and if its there right click on it and click format. Then check if that corrects the problem and you can put songs already on it.

    Try connecting it on a different USB port on your computer if you have a desktop connect it on the back USB port.

    Because if your player is not detected by your computer you wont be able to do that, the bi chance here is the player is not communicating with your computer it may be bad , so if you can try connecting it to a different computer just to check if it will be detected because if still not detected the USB feature of the player is bad.

It's not cutting anymore, my husband greased it and cleaned it but it's not cutting, barely grazes the top. how do I know if the blades are sharp anymore. we have only used it 2-3 times on our cocker...

If you have another clipper, you can test the blades out on them to see if your blades are sharp. As for the blades not cutting on your clipper it could be a couple things. Your blade drive could be worn and not allowing the cutter blade to travel far enough each way to make a clean cut. Another thing to check is that your blade latch is not broken. This is the black hook by the blade drive on the clipper. If the blade latch is broke, the blade won't stay tight up on the clipper. Thus the blade will act like it is dull.

Windows xp wont recognize my archos clipper

That is because USB drives were not available in 1999/2000 when XP came out and there are limited drivers for them.
See if there is a driver on

Hope that explains it.

Try rebooting the device. Hold the power button down for 15 seconds. Then turn the 504 back on. If that does not fix the problem, then reformat the drive. Back up all your files to a PC and go to the "Settings" menu, then select "System" and "Repair" and "Format tools."
