Archos Internet Media Tablet MP3 Player - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

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,15700022,15700105,15700124,15700149,15700168,15700201&usg=ALkJrhjLu8G2hLG-kIw4rakiyPVOOsuahg

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
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.

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!

Get in contact with Archos. Let them know you need to RMA the device due to a bad battery cell.

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
