Archos not seen by pc


This can happen to any external drive on a pc. If the Archos is set to PC Hard Drive mode, then plug it into you PC and click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
In the console tree, click Disk Management.
You can now allocate a drive letter to the Archos.
If you cannot see your Archos in this window, then you may have a dodgey usb cable.

Connection fault with 605 and the PC


I've had a similar issue where I could not see it as a drive.
1st off, have you set it to be a hard drive?
If so, have you tried going into Disk Management on your pc to associate the drive with a drive letter?
Plug the Archos in and go to Start\run, type diskmgmt.msc and click ok.
I can't remember exactly what I did next once in there, but it would have been straight forward for me to be able to do it and now I can see the Archos every time with no problems.
Hope this helps........

Archos 605 Wifi . Can't Write To Drive


Make sure when you format archos its in file system fat32. I can only assume you need check folder permissions, which is why you cannot write to drive.

Firmware upgrade results in arclibrary boot failure


I managed to overcome the problem by doing a factory reset. Unfortunately doing this initially created more problems in that on reboot the main screen appearance looked as it should but was almost inoperable. When the usb cable was connected to my pc the disc did appear on My Computer . The system folder was only 1MB. By good fortune I had copied and saved my Archos files before I carried out the factory reset. Copying the original system files ( about 20MB) back to my Archos returned normal behaviour. Further, two additional buttons appeared. One was a manual arclibrary update button and the other a USB setup button . I cannot get file transfer to operate under windows media player mode and Windows media player 11. No problem though. I use PC hard drive mode and carry out a manual arclibrary update. None of this was possible prior to the factory reset. I believe I would still be having serious problems had I not saved and restored my system files
