Code 108 shows on archos 605


The archos 604 is a portable media player. It is not a PC. The Archos 605 WiFi runs embedded Linux on an ARM processor.

Here is a reprint of someone who solved this problem:

i just got my Archos 605 and when accessed the content portal it said i should update my firmware. when i said OK i got the message it faild connecting to the server and my archos froze.

after restarting it i'm getting the Recovery code (108) i tried to repair disk and format disk but both asking me to conncet to the PC and update the system. the problem i cannot conncet to the PC (i don't see the HD) and don't know what to do.

i managed to solve the problem, if you encounter same problem this is what i did:

1. connect the archos to the PC
2. click on repair
3. click on done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in your windows (be patiant it takes some time)
4. once you see the drive, open it and make sure the System folder is empty, if not delete the file that exists there.
5. put the firmware update file directly on the root drive
6. click repair again on the archos and done.

now it should recognize the update file and perform the update

it worked for me

How to deal with this problem


I was watching a film on mine and it paused and I hade to hold in the power button to shut it off.
When I restarted it I get that error message too.
I did the same as everyone else with no luck, so I left it on thinking that maybe running the battery down and charging it again might help but no luck.
I left it for a week then decided to have another go at fixing it.
I removed the battery and used the reset button to set it to factory defaults.
I powered it up and got the error message and tried the USB cable again (Can't remember for sure if it was on or off when I connected it) and I got the option of connecting to my PC and copying a system update to it.
I downloaded the update and copied it to the harddrive and it then updated itself and restarted.
It booted up ok but when I restarted it I get the error message again.
I redid the first bit again and using the XP Disc Management I removed the partition, then redone it.
I restarted the 604 and formatted the harddrive and copied the update and it updated and restarted again.
The pointer needs to be calabrated again on it to work but it's back to normal now and working great.
I set everything up and copied all the folders into a folder on my PC so if it happens again I just need to fix the harddrive and copy the files over.

In my screen appears Recovery (code2) System is damaged. Would you like to recover it? and Three options No/ Repair/ Format Disk Even if I choose Repair or Format disk nothing is going on. I checked on...


Also had the Code 2 error. Had a look at the harddisk and noticed the ribboncable in the pcb side was not completely in the socket on one side. Reconnected and started up normal.
Beware, the screws are very small, you need a very small (watchmaker) screwdrive or , as I did as my smallest screwdriver was still too big, a knive. As mentioned before, putting it back together can be fiddly but you should check this first before sending it for repairs.
If you feel uncomfortable to take it part, find someone to do it for you.
Don't loose the screws!

Archos 604 Wifi Recovery Code 2


hello everybody, i had this same problem with my archos 604 wifi but thankx to someone on another forum i fixed it. it is really easy:

first you take the battery off, then you unscrew the 4 or 6 screw on the sides of the hard drive, then you lift the lid and then the hard drive, VERY CAREFULLY, Then you will see the problem : the little black plug conected through a ribbon to the hard drive is not plugged correctly or it is completely unpluged from the white socket. even if it is not un plugged just make sure it's tight, put everything back together and it should work just fine. ( IT IS A LITTLE DIFFICUL TO SCREW IT BACK TOGETHER BUT YOU"LL GET IT RIGHT) it is a weird problem. but it is easily fixed.

i hope that helps, bye
