The problem is that the Archos stores library information separately from the actual files on the device and the library must be updated whenever the files are changed.
To manually update your library: From the main screen on your Archos 605, choose the Settings menu from the bottom right corner and select "System".
If there is an "Update ARCLibrary" button available, then click that button and see if it updates your device.
If the button is not there, or does not work, then try temporarily switching the "UBS Preference" setting to 'Windows Media Device" and closing the Settings screen. This should invoke the library update. Once updated, you can switch back to PC Hard Drive Mode.
Initially, it would be possible that the Zen Stone plus is infected with a virus and your PC's antivirus is preventing access to it. Have you tried a reformat of the Zen Stone plus and or a virus scan?
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Have you tried re-formatting while in MSC mode? I've had quite a bit of success with repairing some memory issues with simple reformat. (Fat32). My wife's was showing almost no memory and no music at all. I reformatted and reloaded her music and it works great!
If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk).
Do the following;
? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini.
? Quit all running applications.
? Properly connect the Gmini to your computer
? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted.
? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors.
? Be patient, this may take a while.
? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini from your computer.
Try using the device now and see if makes any difference. If not you could try formatting it using a DOS prompt.
I/O error *usually* means it can't access the device, rather than the data on the device (i.e. doesn't matter how its formatted)
It can be caused by poor media, or it's timing issue, etc.
I would try to restart the playr, and even reformat it.
