No audio on AVI files
I would download virtualdub (free), install a divx convertor (free to some level), and input your original file in virtualdub (file-open file), check the video tab from VDUB, click compression, select divx, and save the file as an .avi file on harddisk of yr computer. If finished, check this avi file with a media player (winamp or so), see if it plays correctly, then transfer the file to your Archos. This will work.
I believe, when you converted, a stray codec was used for audio)

Archos 605 battery replacement
I purchased the battery at the link listed here
The replacement is not easy, but I was successful
a very small phillips head screw driver (for cover)
a very small allen key (for hard drive removal)
solder iron (very small tip)
small shrink tube (or black elec. tape)
remove the back cover (4 small screws top and bottom of the gray back and 4 small screws at the silver sides of the unit) also be careful here as the screen is now loose and can fall away if not supported
remove hard drive (4 small allen screws) make sure you GENTLY wiggle the hard drive out of plug
the battery is now exposed
this was the nasty part, the battery can be removed out the back but you have to pry it out, I ended up prying and bending the battery to remove it (it was do or die at this point). once you have it loose snip the black and red wires leaving about 3 inches.
the new battery dropped into place very easily.
Strip about 1/4 inch off the blacks twine them together and carefully solder (if you twine them end to end make sure you slip a 1" piece of shrink tube over one before you solder, I twined them side by side so I could slip on the tube after) if you use elec. tape instead of tubing MAKE SURE you leave no wire exposed or you unit will likely be forfeight. Repeat process for the red wire making sure the battery lead does not contact anything but the other red lead.
I laid the 2 solder connections along the top edge of the unit so as not to interfere with the hard drive laying flat
reverse the order to reassemble and that should be that!
My new battery was flat on delivery but has now charged up fully and seems to hold a good charge.
