Hard Drive Needs to be Formatted!!!!!! Just Plug in the device, Go to My Computer, Right Click on ur device and format it, But before doing this make sure you back up the data if there is anything because formatting the Player would erase the data on It!!!!

Your post/description indicates a possible problem with the firmware. It would seem that the Archos 6052_bing.gif would load but fail to finish and there restarts itself. This could only be possible if somehow the firmware has been corrupted or you tried a firmware upgrade but failed halfway.

There are several versions of the 605, you need to determine which one you have.

Things you can try:
1. Do a soft reset. Press on the power button for about 15 seconds;
2. Do a full/hard reset by removing the batteries and pressing the master reset button;
3. Try again the Systems Recovery. You may need also to format the internal HD but that would mean you loose whatever data is inside.

Alternately, you may need to update/re-install the firmware. A more complete and better explained firmware update procedures are here. Briefly, you have to download and save in your PC the ???????.aos file (there are several versions of the firmware. You need to determine which one is appropriate to your model), connect your 605 to the PC, copy/paste (drag & drop) the said file to the Archos device listed in "My Computer" (you may have to overwrite the older copy), disconnect 605, proceed to System Settings, tap on "Update Firmware". Follow on screen instructions.


If the above is not corrective, am afraid that your unit has been partially bricked. Some have reported serious hardware or firmware problems with the 605 that would require replacement by the manufacturer.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.


Good luck and kind regards.

Archos 605 wi /fi only puts music on hard drive


A couple things to note. First.
Make sure the files are the right format.
second, make sure they are in the music folder.
third... sometimes it won't read them. you can still play them here's how:

Go on your archos go to music, than at the bottom click on hard drive.... you can play everything there.... i recommend not synching it... but dragging and dropping them in by hand... i like doing things basic...

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.
