20 Most Recent Archos Internet Media Tablet MP3 Player Questions & Answers

I have found a solution for this issue, if you hold down the volume button and the power button for several seconds the Archos goes into a restore type mode. You then plug it into your computer and download the latest firmware update and cut and paste it onto the archos removable hard drive icon that appears in my computer. It will take a few minutes to update but then it will work perfectly.

The only site I could find that didn't give a virus warning was for Archos in French.

I tried to translate using https://translate.google.com


Why is my tablet not detected by my PC? Your tablet works like a computer, hence the fact that it is not recognized by your computer.
Indeed, it is not detected and will not be connected as an external device.
To transfer files from your computer to the tablet or vice versa, use the micro-SD slot to insert a memory card or share the files in a network.
For more information on file sharing, please consult Windows® Support .

So, it is saying to either use a micro-SD memory card, or network the tablet to share files.

Plug the laptop in with the AC adapter before you charge the tablet. When a laptop is on battery power, it may deliver less current to the USB ports. Or, the tablet might have a bad battery.

Is it archos 5 or archos 5 IT ?
For archos 5 IT is already upgrade to 2.2 as far as I know.
For archos 5 I don't think there is one and with archos they don't bother doing anymore upgrades for older models.

Found this for the archos 5 IT.

When you put in the details of your product now, on the web-site, there is the option to transfer registration of a product to you. The product details are key and serial number which can only be obtained by physically having the unit. It's so easy now.

it is an android tablet so all android info would relate to it.
you can download games from a couple sources, you could download the amazon app store, (google it from the tablet) there are also a number of other app stores (AppBrain is another).
If you want the official android app store youre going to have to work a little for it.
these are the step by step instructions of how to install it http://www.jkkmobile.com/2009/11/archos-5-it-now-with-android-market-and.html
another option is to look up any game (ex. angry birds) in google + .apk
"angry birds .apk" download one from the tablet and open it then hit install.
you could then google various other games that way.
