Hi.

If the Archos is working fine when not connected to computer, then problem is either the USB cable, or one of the USB ports.

Test using a different cable and test the archos on a different computer, if that solves the problem and Archos connects fine, replace the cable, or troubleshoot further to fix USB problem on computer.

If that does not fix the problem, then the USB port on your Archos is defective.

Also ensure that you are not using any USB hub.

Note: If Archos is always irresponsive and does not start at all, then problem is different.

Hi

USB hubs are available as "un-powered" and "powered". Your Jukebox will NOT work with an un-powered USB hub and may be unreliable with a powered USB hub. It is recommended for best results, that you connect your Jukebox directly to the USB port located on the back of your computer. First take a look if your battery is fully charged.You can also make a long press on the on/off button for 15 seconds; it will switch off the unit and your data will be not erased . If your device continues to stop and freeze, you have the possibility to format it from the settings menu; you can do this into settings, then select system and repair and format tools. Before doing this, you have to save all your files on your computer. Download the firmware from our Website.
Connect the device to the PC. Go in “My Computer”, you should see “Archos 504/604”.
Copy/Paste the firmware downloaded on “Archos 504/604”
Disconnect the device safely. Go to Setup > System > Update Firmware.


Please accept the solution. Do get back to us for any query.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Hello

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."

a. go to Archos website and download latest firmware and save on your pc
b. turn on 504 and select repair - unit not connected to pcm you will see a screen where you wil be prompted to press DONE (but DONT press it yet!!!!)
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it (it will recognize it this time)
d. copy firmware from pc and paste it to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. now when the device restarts you just select Repair and that should work. :)
