    Thanks for all your help, I tried the + button thing, and now instead of getting the recovery code 3, now I get the code 1, and it wont let me anythng either. Any other suggestions, or should I just throw this piece of junk away?



    Thanks again, you are very kind



    Regards

Aha - that is a different matter. To get the computer to recognize the device: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

You might want to double-check your Archos manual first - sometimes, instead of Volume +, they reccomend a different button.
