SOURCE: I have an archos 405

Hi,

1. Select 2nd option "Repair" or 3rd "Format the disk"
2. Connect 605 to PC using USB wire and find the Driver named "a405" or similar words
3. Copy a firmware to the ROOT directory on the driver mentioned above
4. Keep the USB connected and select "OK" on 405
5. Re-calibrate the screen under Display menu on 405.

The firmware file needs to be name exactly as it is downloaded. I downloaded both OSv2.1.0.4 and OSv2.0.1.0 firmwares to the same folder on my PC. Obviously enough I had to give them different names on the disk, I tried both and neither worked. It turns out the recovery system will not use any firmware unless it is named "firmware_a405f.aos". So if you're like me, copy the firmware over to the root of the USB-drive and then rename to firmware_a405f.aos.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Recovery (code 104)


From Archos' support website FAQ:

When I switch on my Archos device, the following message is displayed: "Would you like to recover your system?" What does it mean and what should I do?


You are on the recovery mode screen. It means that your hard drive has been damaged and must be repaired or formatted.
With this system recovery mode, you will have to select between "Repair Disk" and "Format Disk".
Start by selecting "Repair Disk" and follow the instructions displayed on the screen. See the full PDF manual (available on the Archos web site) on how to use the Repair and Format options.

If repairing the disk did not work, try formatting the disk by selecting "Format Disk". Note that the formatting will erase all data.

If you still cannot restart your Archos after trying a system recovery, you should contact Archos technical support.

See:

When I switch on my Archos device, the following message is displayed: "Would you like to recover your system?" What does it mean and what should I do?

It means that there is a hard drive error due to damage. The hard drive can be repaired by selecting 'Repair Disk'.

I tried to translate this for you using Google Translate, but Fixya would not allow it.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.
