Question about Archos 104 MP3 Player

Open Question

Mp3 playback distortion

I've added many audio books to my Archos. On two occasions, I've gotten a strange distortion, almost as if the data is partially scrambled. There are metallic chirps and squeaks. In one audio book, the playback was undecipherable. In the other, I could understand it, but the distortion would persist on couple of words. The mp3s in question both play clearly and without problem on my pc with Windows Media Player. I've deleted and reloaded the files onto the Archos repeatedly with no relief. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What format did you rip it to? Is it supported by the player. Try converting the files to mp3 then adding them.

Have you tried to add those files to WMP? In the directory theres an option 'add to library', then you have to select the folder where the movie is in. also Archos cant read DVD extensions, I always convert them to AVI MPEG4, but WMV has to do it well too. I never use that option, because I prefer manually copy past instead of sync. WMP has to convert automatically to WMV when synchronising.
Hope this will work! ;)

This is an issue with the Windows Media Player Sync feature not the Archos device. Check out the help section in WMP to fix your problem.

How do i delete music from my archos 15


Hi franianson...
Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod/Archos,etc.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BIG WARNING: DO NOT DELETE THE FILES NEEDED TO OPERATE YOUR MP3 PLAYER.
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
ONE MORE BIG WARNING: BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT DELETE THE FILES NEEDED TO OPERATE YOUR MP3 PLAYER.

Lost my manul for archos jukebox recorder 20 mp3 player/recorder & data storage


Go to the RockBox software site. RockBox is provided freely by an end-user created and supported group and is a wonderfully evolved software replacement for quite a few portable music-playing machines. Your Archos Jukebox recorder is long out of warranty, so there's NO downside in updating it by installing the most current version of RockBox. That will greatly extend the capabilities of your machine.

Then download the RockBox user Manual! That will be your new Archos JukeBox Recorder User Manual. You'll be able to select what you hear by one of two control strategies: File names or by Playlists. You'll be able to adjust playback sound in new and more powerful ways than just using the equalizer. Also it will allow you to control playback "pitch" or speed, so you can hear lectures or books at a higher playback speed. Human retention actually improves when playback speed is increased some. You can print out the RockBox pdf. format manual if you'd like or you can study it on line. Lots of choices.

Good luck with your "obsolete" Archos JukeBox. I actually prefer the earlier models which were powered by four rechargeable AA cells rather than those with the replaceable lithium battery. I know someone who ran one of these continually for more than a year to provide background music, plugged into a wall-wart charger and his sound system. Durable!

My player is telling me that i need to format the unit even though it's loaded with music files and have had no problems with it in three years. I don't know why this has happened. Please advise..thank you


Somehow the data has gotten corrupted and it can no longer read the contents, or worse, memory failure. You might be able to salvage some of the data by connecting it to a computer and copying the files to the computer. Then, disconnect and let the player format the memory.

Download Magic Video Converter from www.isohunt.com and change the video to WMP Standard 8. You don't need 1.25 GB vids for the archos, it's too high a quality for such a small screen.
