Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have an Archos 1 Vision player 4gb and in a rush I STUPIDLY disconnected it from the computer beforer the message said it was safe to do so. The player still shows the songs that are on it, but when I try to play them it simply states "Attention! no file!". When I plugged it back into the comuter to have a look at the files, the file names were replaced by squares etc. The computer wouldn't let me delete the files either. I don't know what to do now. It is a fairly new player which I received as a gift so really hope that there is a simple solution. When I got the player it was recognised by the computer and there was no need to put a disc in to run a program etc so there is nothing to uninstall if that is of any use??

I had this problem too. If you connect your player to the PC and run chkdsk with the /f option this should get you running again.
ie, if it connects as drive E: from a DOS command prompt run the following.//
chkdsk e: /f

Archos 20d vision mp3 player 4gb can put music from windows media on [cd] to mp3 but it as a question mark and there is no sound have ripped and synced and other music wont play continuess


Give up mate,
This MP3 player is total garbage, many MP3 just wont play and the Archos Service can\'t help.
Archos does not provide an firmware update for this device, even if is poorly working.
So, this product is useless as the Archos service.
Don\'t buy any Archos products or you will regret.

My daughter has an "Archos 3 cam vision MP4 player", and am unable to find the driver I need to use it. the Archos website asks about the product I have, but I do not know which one it is. I do...


Usually, just plugging in the mp3 player to the computer via usb cable will install the driver automatically on the computer. Make sure you have an internet connection on that computer you are connecting your mp3 player to.

Was there a CD with the mp3 player? If there was, the driver is probably there, and all you need to do is install the CD on your computer.

After searching the Archos website, I could not find the drivers for any of the mp3 players unfortunately. If the problem persists, you should tell Archos you have the "Archos 3Cam Vision Mp3 Player" as your product.

My archos vision 1 is not recognised by computer


Hi, archos vision 1 player not recognized by the computer

This may be caused by one of the following:
1. Minimum system requirements were not met.
2. Corrupted drivers.
3. Computer restrictions.
4. Power issue.

To resolve this issue, try the following solutions:

SOLUTION 1 - For brand new player or first time connecting to this computer.

For Windows XP users: verify the following operating system requirements are met.
- Windows XP SP2 or higher
- Windows Media Player 10 or higher

Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.

For Windows Vista users: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player.
- Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211.
- Run the hotfix.

For MAC users, see archos vision 1 player not recognized by a MAC OS

NOTE: If you are trying to connect to a Computer at work that is part of a network, there may be user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware or stop any program installations. You may need to check with your IT administrator to see if this is causing the problem.



SOLUTION 2 - Refresh the driver

STEP 1 - Connect the archos vision 1 player to the PC
The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full.
- If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub.
- If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.

If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.
Image
2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.

NOTE: archos vision 1 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are archos vision 1 Connect and archos vision 1 Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for archos vision 1 Players when used with Windows OS.

The archos vision 1 player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as:
1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)
2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.


STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.

NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


Have a nice day....

How do i update my Archos 504?


How to install firmware ..?(update)

Step 1. Download the firmware to your computer-->click HERE to download the update file When you download the update file, your browser may warn you that the file 'could be harmful'. This is normal because browsers are not familiar with files that have a .AOS extension and suspect that they could be malicious. These files are not harmful to your computer.

Step 2. Turn on your ARCHOS device and connect it to your computer with the USB cable

Step 3. On the ARCHOS, choose to connect and wait a few seconds for your device to be detected by the computer

Step 4. Copy and paste the downloaded firmware (.AOS file) to the ARCHOS device.
  • Case 1: logo_firm_hdd.jpg Your ARCHOS is detected by your computer as a Hard Drive (E: for example) in Windows® Explorer. Paste the update file directly onto the ARCHOS hard drive icon.
  • Case 2: logo_firm_g4.jpg Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see just two folders Data and Media when you open it. Paste the update file into the folder called Data.
  • Case 3: logo_firm_g4.jpg Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see Internal Hard Drive when you open it. Open this Internal Hard Drive icon and you will see the various ARCHOS folders inside (Video, Music, etc.). Paste the update file into this area but be careful not to paste it into any of the folders there.
Step 5. Disconnect the Device
Unplug the USB cable (for 'Mobile Device' connections) or use the "safe disconnect" green arrow icon (for Hard drive connection) in the system tray before unplugging the USB cable.

Step 6. On your ARCHOS device, click on "Update Firmware"
Click on the "tab" button to show the settings screen. Select the "System" icon and then click on the "Update Firmware" button. For the ARCHOS 104, 202, & 204, go to the settings and open the icon "System" where you can find the Update Firmware button.

I need an operators manual for archos vision 3. Kids gave to me for book download and pics. Came with no instuctions. Help


Hello,
There's only a small operation guide available for the Archos 3 Vision:
http://www.archos.com/support/download/manuals/Archos_3_v2_EN-FR.pdf

When exploring the player in My Computer on the PC, before disconnecting always
go through the icon "safely remove hardware'' in the right corner on the computer's screen below.

For transfers Window Media Player 11 can be used.
More information about using WMP11 see:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/using.mspx

Need more information ? Just add a comment.

My archos 605 4gb keeps locking up ....i have to keep pressing the reset button to use it again...why??


Memory inside is fouling and it is going to need to be serviced or if there is a firmware update I'd try that before all else.

Think i have broken my archos 605


Go to the archos website on your PC and download the latest firmware. Once you have the firmware downloaded to your desktop, connect your archos to the PC with your usb cable.
The computer should recognise the archos as an external drive.
Open the archos drive on your desktop and drag the new firmware into the window. The computer will copy the new firmware onto the Archos drive.
DO a safe disconnect from your pc and restart your archos. The new frimware should start to load itself on your Archos when it powers up. You will need to reconnect the usb cable for the downlaod to start running. Once it is finished it will restart itself again. You will probably need to recalibrate your touch screen interface as well. You need to use the buttons on the side of the unit to scroll through the menu to get to the "settings" screen, and then the "display" screen. Choose "calibrate touchscreen" and follow the instructions.

I hope this helped.
