I cant register product i have one already registerd the archos 605 gen 5 but cant do this one


When you put in the details of your product now, on the web-site, there is the option to transfer registration of a product to you. The product details are key and serial number which can only be obtained by physically having the unit. It's so easy now.

Archos 605i


First off, I would recommend at least to get you going, that you NOT use the Archos to buy your plug-ins. Instead go to a desktop or laptop computer and buy your plug-ins using it. You will get the files you need by email. Once you copy them to the root of your Archos, the upgrade is painless. You likely will need the latest firmware before you upgrade so make sure you get that first.

I bought 4 Plug-ins for my Archos 605 WiFi TV+(Cinema+Podcast+Web)plugins for about $38.00 US on eBay. The deal was quick and cost much less than I would have paid to buy them directly from Archos. The seller I bought from claims to be an authorized reseller. I believe this is true because when I went to Archos, I found my player already registered. You may also find that you can get a similar bulk price for plug-ins for at the Archos Forum.

If you don't have another email you can use to try it(such as yahoo or gmail) or should no other emails work, you should call archos tech support line and they can get you registered over the phone...usually.

Problem registering


Hi
I'm having exactly the same problem, i.e. bought from Luzerntech and now can't get downloads because they won't recognise the serial number. There is no email at Archos to contact and I don't want to spend 25p a min to phone. I have contacted Luzerntech to see if they can help and will let you know if they answer. If you get any further please will you post the details? I will do the same. Good luck.

Registering


I rang this number.0207 949 0115. I've the same problem and spoke to a guy who told me to send an email to webmaster@archos.com. Give them as many details about you and the machine as you can. I'm still waiting on an outcome but the guy assured me it would be dealt with.

I can't download anything


1. You need to connect to the Internet. The easist way to do this is find an open wireless connection, like at a cafe or at someone's home whom you know.

2. Once you know you're in range of a connection, click on the Portal or the Web icon on the display.

3. When you click on the Web icon, you may be asked to buy the Opera browser to surf the internet. I never was able to buy the browser using my 605, even after registering it online. I used my PC to buy the plug-in online and then downloaded it to the 605 using the USB connection. Follow the instructions after you buy the Opera browser from Archos's web site -- they were clear and simple on how to install the Opera browser onto the device.

4. If you instead choose to click on the Portal icon, you will then see the 605 display some boxes indicating it has detected some wireless connection(s) and then it asks you if you want to see the list of connection(s). View the list and choose the connection you want to connect to. (Note: If you've downloaded and installed the Opera browser, you will see this message, too; if you haven't, you will see the screen that has a button you can click to "buy it now." As I said, I never got that to work -- and I tried a few different connections.)

5. ONce you've chosen a connection, if it is password protected, the 605 will ask you for the password. Enter it using the keyboard that will pop up. If it is not password protected, you should be able to jump on the connection.

6. Then, if you clicked the Portal icon, you'll see some buttons to press to view content. Free stuff to choose from, some of it is good.

That's it. Anyone else chime in with corrections and clarifications!

ARCHOS 605 WiFi - 120GB TV guide problem


I had the same problem as you, after hours of browsing the frustrating archos website i simply deleted all the products from my account and then re-registered them. Turned out I'd simply put the serial number of my 605 incorrectly. Once re-registered, the tv-guide came up on my archos link software and updated it. Don't be too pleased though, when I did this about 98% of the channels just had "no information available" displayed on them on my Archos. Can anyone solve that?
