Go to the RockBox software site. RockBox is provided freely by an end-user created and supported group and is a wonderfully evolved software replacement for quite a few portable music-playing machines. Your Archos Jukebox recorder is long out of warranty, so there's NO downside in updating it by installing the most current version of RockBox. That will greatly extend the capabilities of your machine.

Then download the RockBox user Manual! That will be your new Archos JukeBox Recorder User Manual. You'll be able to select what you hear by one of two control strategies: File names or by Playlists. You'll be able to adjust playback sound in new and more powerful ways than just using the equalizer. Also it will allow you to control playback "pitch" or speed, so you can hear lectures or books at a higher playback speed. Human retention actually improves when playback speed is increased some. You can print out the RockBox pdf. format manual if you'd like or you can study it on line. Lots of choices.

Good luck with your "obsolete" Archos JukeBox. I actually prefer the earlier models which were powered by four rechargeable AA cells rather than those with the replaceable lithium battery. I know someone who ran one of these continually for more than a year to provide background music, plugged into a wall-wart charger and his sound system. Durable!

The batteries put a lot of stress on some solder joints, causing them to break. Not charging is one symptom. Go to rockbox.com and look for detailed instructions on fixing it.

sounds like you are connecting your Archos to either a Mac or a Linux box. When you place items in trash they're actually placed in a hidden .trash folder on the Archos's internal drive and so still take up space.
Start by reconnecting the device to your computer and when it appears on your desktop try emptying your trash can/recycle bin, this will empty all .trash folders including the one on the Archos.
If you're using a Mac you may also want to use a 'clean eject' app such as FinderCleaner to remove all the Apple system files from your Archos. Don't worry the only effect this has is to slow reconnection down by 1 or 2 seconds but it helps prevent problems like this and prevent the device from getting confused by Apple system files.

If you've got it connected to your computer, you can do the same things that you would with any connected hard drive. In this case you should be able to delete files and then empty the recycle bin.

After that, go to My Computer and right click the icon for your Jukebox and select Properties. There you should be able to use Disk Cleanup to purge old system files, etc.

Try to download VLC media player on your computer and try to play with it. If that works, you can use VLC, or you can download the K-lite codec pack for free from the internet too.

It is possible you could have burnt out the works if the charger you used is more power full than the proper one.
