are you sure the files are in a format that is playable by the archos media player? what model is it, and what is the file extension of the music files

It is very unlikely to be caused by a virus. Try reseting the device. If that does not work then try clearing out the player and loading all of the music back onto it.

Ok this is a sort of fix for this problem.
You have to edit a mp3 file with a mp3 editor and make the mp3 you have selected 00.01 of a second long.
Rename it a 1.
So when the player has a fot and want to play number 1 file it will actually appear not to and move on to another song.
Yes simple but it works a treat, my new archos had this problem and this is how i sorted it.

Does the MP3 player charge when it is plugged into the system?
if not then you may need a different USB lead, if it DOES charge, it may be the case that the device is formatted in a way that prevents computers (or playstations etc.) accessing music without certain software. my personal solution for this was to put all of your music from your computer onto a USB stick and copy it over to the PS3. You can copy music from iTunes by selecting tracks and pressing CTRL+C, I believe the same applies in windows media player

First copy the files from the DVD to the computer. Insert DVd, and drag files to desktop. then run the files through the Archos media converter. A typical DVD is about 700MB, so you won't be able to fit many on there.

Howdy, a bit of a late answer, but go into music (or go into files, then choose the folder full of music you want to play)

Then when a song is playing, hold the M button for a while (can take anything up to 15 seconds) then you will see a menu come up. First option should be "Repeat M" (I assume M=mode) anyway, select that and scroll along with the + button until you get to "All Rand"

Select that and your away

Take the battery off, and to the left of the battery connetion tabs is a small gold button, push and hold for 10 seconds. It should start up after doing this.

There's only a small operation guide available for the Archos 3 Vision:

When exploring the player in My Computer on the PC, before disconnecting always
go through the icon "safely remove hardware'' in the right corner on the computer's screen below.

For transfers Window Media Player 11 can be used.
More information about using WMP11 see:

Is the battery dead when you connected it? When you connect the MP3 player on the USB port, do you get any light signals etc? Try moving it into another USB port.

Hi,when this happens,please plug USB charger and run the Archos..if it runs immediately the HD and system is okay but the battery should be the faulty element.So just replace the battery.That was the case for my Archos 604 and than after battery replacement it was corrected.

Wow - there are SOOOO many place to get music from these days.
Simply Google MP3 - and a bevvy of sites will pop up.
and the list goes on....

As far as getting them on the player itself... Once plugged into your PC via USB cable - it is a matter of either using the software included with your MP3 unit, or Opening My Computer... and it will show up as a removeable drive.

Simply drag the songs you want from your music folder onto the removeable drive.

Another option is to right click on the song, and SEND TO removeable drive.

Thanks for using FixYa!!
