Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player
My Archos 605 WIFI has started freezing on the startup screen saying 'Entertainment your way'
It doesnt go any further, and after a while on that screen it just shuts down.
Would the reset button do it? And would i loose all my files?
Has anyone else had this problem?
Mine did that the first time i opened it out the box and turnin i just pressed the reset buttion

I suffered the same problem as you, fortunately I fixed it after a lot of messing around.
First what you want to do is switch off the system completely. Once the power light is off, switch the system back on, once the LCD screen turns on, immediately press and hold down the YV/LCD screen for about 5 seconds, a white screen should appear.
You will have three options, click the second option, (i think it is repair) and connect the archos to the PC. This will allow you to transfer all your files to PC because you can access the harddrive.
Once you have taken all the files you want, turn the system off again. Then again, turn the system on, hold down the TV/LCD button for 5 seconds until the white screen appears. Choose the format option. This will take your archos back to factory settings. It took me a few goes to get it back to normal but once its done, you will be glad you put the effort in.
Now all there is to do is to take your files back across via cable and you should be done!
I hope that helped!
