Try the archos on another computer, see what happens does it work there? Is it saying connect device on the screen of the archos? can it be used? any other complaints - does the unit complain? errors? error code?

Archos Audio... | Answered on Nov 15, 2008

The answer to that, only the manufacturer can give you. Try to call them and explain the situation

start unit up, then quickly press volume up key. This then enables you to format the drive and reload the OS.

I left the player on for about 24 hours to allow the battery to completely run down. I then connected it to my computer and it took the charge and is working fine now.

Archos Audio... | Answered on Nov 06, 2008

sounds like the battery has been allowed to discharge totally this is not good for certain types of battery despite what some people may think.. some modern bateries require at least a residual charge to keep it healthy enough to receive a whole charge

First buy a 2.5" hard drive. Remove the back cover (with a putty knife or something really thin), then follow this guide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gk6eMP55rrc

have you tried to reset the ipod

Archos Audio... | Answered on Jul 18, 2008

Black spots = damaged screen = not repairable = must replace player

All you can do are the "soft" fixes - reset, repair, restore, format, update, upgrade, etc; but, since black spots are caused by hardware failure rather than software failure, none of these methods will work

Hopefully, you are still under warranty

Archos Audio... | Answered on Jul 08, 2008

Make sure your operating system (XP, Vista, Macintosh, etc) is compatible with the Archos. Make sure you installed the installation CD first, before inserting the player. Restart the computer once before inserting the player. If same result, try a different usb port on the same computer or another computer.

If it still doesn't work, then go to the Archos website and see if a firmware upgrade is available for your particular model.
