Not playing new tracks loaded onto mp3 from pc


You may have a bad sector on the HDD where those files has been saved. Please check my other fix responses to be able to format your HDD and reinstall the firmware version 2.1 which is the latest one right now. I recommend after the HDD formatted do a disk repaire using Windows. Keep it mind you will lose all the contents and plugins from loaded to the device you need to decide which one is more important saving the Archos or losing the contends. If you be play it safe i'd say send it to archos and have them replace the HDD it costs about 150-170 $ but they will be able to put your plugins back in. and you will have 3 months warrant on their fix.

Just got Archos 5 goes into error 101...


Hi there, these instructions are for the archos 705 but they are the same for the 605.

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 705 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!

Archos 605 doesn't recognize my music files


from another forum on this site

Thanks and credit to eyez12 - the 2nd option below worked for me

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"
