Can I change the battery on my archos 605

You can get a replacement battery here.http://www.newmp3technology.com/605-battery.htmBy the looks of it, your need to open it up and unsolder the battery contacts and then resolder them.If you don't feel up to doing it yourself, then try anywhere that repaires PC, laptop and such.Check if they will do it and buy the battery yourself, might be cheeper that way.Also check ebay incase it's cheeper there.

I downloaded Play On to play Hulu and You Tube,

with Archos Video Converter a multifunctional audio and video format converter can convert from video to video, audio and picture, especially convert AVI to MPEG, as well as audio to audio and picture to video. Besides work as an AVI converter, this video format converter supports nearly all popular video and audio formats.

Archos won't connect by USB to computers

You should keep your eye on the device after its been plugged to the PC it will give you 2 options "charge" or "usb" you ca not establish a connection without picking usb connection option on the Archos screen when it pops up. If you are doing so and problem still existed then i would recommend you to download the latest windows media player. Because it comes with new devices sync driver update.

Archos 605 wifi 160GB

I would suggest that you buy a external USB card reader, you should be able to pick one up quite cheaply and see if that works ?

Wont start recovery 102??

Remove your memory card and restart your archos, when it asks if you want to repair blahblah... just keep pressing the cross till it loads as normal with the sd card 'out', this should work, to stop it happening in the future format your memory card 'sd' with your archos once it has started. Hope that helps!

Try Repair, if the repair option doesn't work, do a format.

if the problem is not solved you need to upgrade the firmware, you can get it from here

instructions for installing the firmware.

Step 1. Download the firmware to your computer
When you download the update file, your browser may warn you that thefile 'could be harmful'. This is normal because browsers are notfamiliar with files that have a .AOS extension and suspect that theycould be malicious. These files are not harmful to your computer.

Step 2. Turn on your ARCHOS device and connect it to your computer with the USB cable

Step 3. Wait a few seconds for device detection

Step 4. Copy and paste the downloaded firmware (.AOS file) to the "root" of your ARCHOS device.
  • Case1: Your Archos is detected by your computer as a Hard Drive ( E: forexample ) in Windows Explorer. Paste the update file directly onto theARCHOS hard drive icon.
  • Case 2: Your Archos device is detectedas a ‘Device’ in Windows Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you seejust two folders Data and Media when you open it. Paste the update fileinto the folder called Data.
  • Case 3. Your Archos device is detectedas a ‘Device’ in Windows Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you seeInternal Hard Drive when you open it. Open this Internal Hard Driveicon and you will see the various Archos folders inside (Video, Music,etc.). Paste the update file into this area but be careful not to pasteit into any of the folders there.

Step 5. Disconnect the Device
Unplug the USB cable (Windows Device connections) or use the "safedisconnect" green arrow icon (Hard drive connection) in the system traybefore unplugging the USB cable.

Step 6. On your ARCHOS device, click on "Update Firmware"
Generation 5 products: Once you disconnect the USB cable, the devicewill recognize the new update file and invite you to install it. Followthe on-screen instructions. If it does not suggest an update, thismeans that the .AOS file did not get placed on the “Root” of thedevice.
Generation 4 products: From the mainARCHOS screen, click on the "tab" button to show the settings screen.Select the System icon and then click on the Update Firmware button.
Other products: Go to the settings and open the icon “System” where you can find the Update Firmware button.

If the update fails the hard drive in your archos is most likely faulty, and you would need to send it to archos for repair, if you are on warranty, the repair will be free, if you are outside of warranty they will charge for the repair contact them for a estimate.

Battery drains in 15 minutes

is it an old device? because it is powered with lithium-ion batteries, meaning the power degrades over time. if its old, then that will be the reason
