Iv had this go to your Archos and do RECOVERY Then go to your computer load the Archos programe. Go to you archos account and find the updates for your Archos. Right click and SAVE TO YOUR COMPUTER NAME IT Archos 1..Do the same with the secound and third Updates if there are anymore.
Now you will need to see your Saved program which should be on your desktop and your Archos in your MY COMPUTER Reduce both these so you can see them .
Nearly there
Go to my computer Drag and drop the First programe Archos 1 onto the Archos in My Computer Go to your Archos and click OK

Well, if you REALLY want to purchase one I'm sure they will be able to sell you one, but you can download one free from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/manuals.html?country=us&lang=en

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.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Copy and paste the files into the Music folder once you have connected the 405 to the PC via USB and set it in PC mode. Please read the downloadable pdf user guide in ARCHOS main page.

Archos 405... | Answered on Feb 07, 2010

The drive of the 405 is formatted in FAT32,so you can´t manage files bigger than 2gb.

Archos 405... | Answered on Feb 07, 2010

The buttons are ALWAYS disabled when you connect it to the PC in "mass storage/hard drive" mode. This doesn´´t mean malfunction.

what is website called for archos

Archos 405... | Answered on Jan 17, 2010

can you be a little more specific? what kind of problem you are having?

Archos 405... | Answered on Sep 14, 2009

Hi. Remove the 16gb SDHC. If you still have difficulties then downgrade the firmware (to original version). You may need to enter
'recovery mode' by powering down the archos then press both power button and volume up button at the same time. Do a disk repair. Shayind4

Archos 405... | Answered on Sep 12, 2009

Try a master reset using the manual, It should reset it factory settings. You can then configure the archos.

Archos 405... | Answered on Sep 12, 2009

Hi . Download the update file from Archos website ( under Support), and follow the instructions on the download site about 'How to update firmware'. I hope this helps. Shayind4

I think it means 'File system FAT error'. Use the solution above by IPOD tech for reformatting the hard disk. It should be OK. I used the solution to reformat my archos7 last night, and it is working fine.

Archos 405... | Answered on Sep 12, 2009

Hi. What is 'completely blank'? If the screen is blank after pressing the email icon then do a master reset, or do a disk repair ( from Setting). Shay
