    Hi

    I have the same problem ie when I plug in the USB lead and the screen says the USB lead it attached the 605 does not as a connected hard drive or connected for Syncing in the Windows Media console which it did do till a week ago.

    I have reformatted the hard drive (605) and no change.

    Archos say it sounds like it needs a repair..??

Is your Archos set to hard drive mode? If it is, your pc will see it as another drive and you can just drag and drop files within Windows.

Hi Again
I have solved my problem. After searching elsewhere I found another site with a few users with the same issue.
A new USB lead is the solution.

The usb disbles the buttons on the archos. then you have to use something on your desktop to syncronize. like if you download archoslink from their website, you can automatically synchronize to podcasts you subscribe to. or you can use windows media to synch music or other media to the device. I download books & videos from my library and can upload books to the archos using their software which is called Overdrive Media console. The key is that you have to have some other software loaded that you use to sync to the archos. I hope this helps you!

I am not able to connect my achos to my pc or laptop. When I attached the cable from my achos to my system; it charges the battery but I cant access the hard drive and other files


If you plug the Archos when it is off, wait until main screen appears, press OK button when the message about charging pops up, then press MENu and scroll down to the USB options, select hard drive mode. Please read the manual you can download at Archos official site/support/downloads

Archos won't connect by USB to computers


You should keep your eye on the device after its been plugged to the PC it will give you 2 options "charge" or "usb" you ca not establish a connection without picking usb connection option on the Archos screen when it pops up. If you are doing so and problem still existed then i would recommend you to download the latest windows media player. Because it comes with new devices sync driver update.

My archos 605 [160gb ] not recognized on my PC


I recommend trying your archos on a different computer just to see if it is a pc or archos problem. Your pc should come right up and ask if you want to charge or use the usb port or both. Try another computer.

Not recognised under USB


if you are having technical problem with your archos 605 just do this connect your USB with your computer and your archos device will pop up on the screen asking you if you want to charge your device or enaable usb that will automatically appear if your computer doesen't reconise the device then switch it off and on again if doesen't work then i suggest you look it up on the archos manual which is located on your device. if that doent work then i think you may need to update your computer it must have windows Core dual processor if that don't work and your archos device doesent appear then i think you may need to update your computer with a service pack 2 installation cd
