Archos is not claiming compatibility with vista, even with their latest firmware upgrade - sorry

If you are Using the Option " In Windows Media Device mode" then you will certainly not be able to connect your Archos to the computer to sync files in.because the computers recognizes as a MPT device. windows xp or windows vista both do not recognize MPT devices unless the device drivers are available in windows, which is usually not. If you use the "In PC Hard Drive mode", you will be able to connect your archos to the computer and be able to sync with windows media player. So i'm suggesting you should use the PC Hard Drive mode when you are connecting to the computer to sync files.
hope this helps

*You do not need to install any software to be able to use Archos. Windows xp recognizes as a hard drive if you choose hard drive mode.

Battery problem


I had the same problem and changed the battery on Monday. Works fine. There are just four small screws to remove.

Replacement battery can be found here:
http://newmp3technology.com/404-battery.htm. I used them and can confirm that the battery comes with the right connector for the Archos 404.

Took 10 minutes to replace it.

Good luck.
