Stuck on the ARCHOS Screen and it won't do any thing


A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 705:
1- Connect the unit to its power source.
2- Start the unit in recovery mode: Press the TV button first then the power on/off and keep pressing TV button (do not release it)
3- The recovery mode will start (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the TV Button (it is all explained to move through the menu at the top of the Archos screen) (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" select it to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" plug it with the USB cable to the computer
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 705:
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the power cable until the process is finished
4- When done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!

Ghost librarary: deleted files still shown on media directory


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.

Songs won't show up in the artist folder


try going to menu, settings, system, and then clicking the update ARCLibrary button, that was all it took for me.
if that doesn't work then go to repair and formatting tools and click "clear temp system files and cache"

Firmware upgrade results in arclibrary boot failure


I managed to overcome the problem by doing a factory reset. Unfortunately doing this initially created more problems in that on reboot the main screen appearance looked as it should but was almost inoperable. When the usb cable was connected to my pc the disc did appear on My Computer . The system folder was only 1MB. By good fortune I had copied and saved my Archos files before I carried out the factory reset. Copying the original system files ( about 20MB) back to my Archos returned normal behaviour. Further, two additional buttons appeared. One was a manual arclibrary update button and the other a USB setup button . I cannot get file transfer to operate under windows media player mode and Windows media player 11. No problem though. I use PC hard drive mode and carry out a manual arclibrary update. None of this was possible prior to the factory reset. I believe I would still be having serious problems had I not saved and restored my system files

ArcLibrary wont update


I had similar problem at Archos Gemini 202s. ARClib would crash. I solved as follows: Created a folder on the 202. Moved half my files and folders from the Music folder (via de PC, of course). Then checked for correct update of ARClib. If not, I swapped the contents of the folders and checked with the other half. If update is succesful, it is now known what half is the faulty one.
Now, try to troubleshoot this faulty half in the same way. And so on. Quite quickly, you know what file(s) cause the problem. Good luck!
