Your system is somehow corrupted, could be music downloaded from the net, whatever it is easy fixable.

A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 5 or 7:
1- Plug the unit to you computer via the USB cable.
2- The unit should start automatically and open the following page:
3- From the recovery console (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the volume control on the right of the unit (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" press the on and off button, shortly to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" but it is already plugged from point 1 - DO NOT press anything anymore on the Archos
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 5 or 7
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the USB cable until the process is finished
4- when done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!

Make a search on ebay for Archos firmware issues somebody has a video for sale step by step showing how to fix it.

Disassembling Archos will void device's manufacture warranty. You should not do it yourself. There is some parts are very fragile will cause a permanent damage to the device. I will not recommend for you to do it yourself.

Hey welcome to fix ya. i hope u 'll be fine.
  • If u have purchased the software which u r using as demo version from any site and u have proof of it then do mail to them that i didn't get registration key or password, they will send u its key or password
  • If u did not purchased it and using only demo version then free serials, cracks keys , codes or passwords are illegal & crime. Fix ya do not allow this check so it can dangerous for u and also for us. Fix ya can block both user and expert. i hope u can understand.
Wish u good luck

same problem here. My digitizer has cracked. My worry is that I don't really know how I could attach a replacement...have you repaired your archos yet?

The first thing you should try if an electronic device doesn't connect with a computer is downloading the driver for the device.

Archos Internet... | Answered on Nov 08, 2010

you can connect it via wi-fi or via bluetooth..
if you have a router near you archos will get connected with that router through wi-fi and you'll be able to go online.
if you have a 3g and bluetooth enabled phone with you pair that phone with archos via bluetooth so that archos can use phone data plan for browsing the internet.

these are the two ways by which archos will get online

Sounds like a leaky capacitor, probably capacitor will need to be replaced or if you're not good at soldering the board where the capacitor is faulty.

you will most likely have to wait on the release from adobe in october for that to happen.. in the mean time you can install the google market on the archos and then install opera mini web browser and it will allow you to watch youtube videos.. i found that to work best for me.. opera mini can only be found in the google market for android download though.. i tried several times to find it before but i never was able to get a download link for android...
hope this helps... Daniel
