Does not play the music file loaded

I have sycd my music file to the new archos I have just purchased and they appear in the files but dont play, when I plug the archos to my computer I vcan play the in windows media and if I un-plug it when playing the music stops. I presume the music must be in the archos player. I have 2 other archos units and I sync them just the same and they play.

1- Check that your MP3 Player's File system is OK, you can do that using the DOS command (chkdsk /f). 2- Re-install your Windows Media Player 11. 3- Don't forget to update your system, too.

SOURCE: Firmware upgrade results in arclibrary boot failure

I managed to overcome the problem by doing a factory reset. Unfortunately doing this initially created more problems in that on reboot the main screen appearance looked as it should but was almost inoperable. When the usb cable was connected to my pc the disc did appear on My Computer . The system folder was only 1MB. By good fortune I had copied and saved my Archos files before I carried out the factory reset. Copying the original system files ( about 20MB) back to my Archos returned normal behaviour. Further, two additional buttons appeared. One was a manual arclibrary update button and the other a USB setup button . I cannot get file transfer to operate under windows media player mode and Windows media player 11. No problem though. I use PC hard drive mode and carry out a manual arclibrary update. None of this was possible prior to the factory reset. I believe I would still be having serious problems had I not saved and restored my system files

SOURCE: When I sync files to My mp3 player, it says "no file" when I diconnect.

I unchecked in the advanced sync setting the box to have windows media player create the drive hierarchy. Then I deleted all files on the player and did the sync again. This time only the mp3 files get written.

Windows Media Player 11 ruins this player. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11, and roll back to Windows Media Player 10. Then use version 10 to sync songs to your device.

SOURCE: Archos 605 doesn't recognize my music files

from another forum on this site

Thanks and credit to eyez12 - the 2nd option below worked for me

try going to menu, settings, system, and then clicking the update ARCLibrary button, that was all it took for me.
if that doesn't work then go to repair and formatting tools and click "clear temp system files and cache"

Hi My wife and I have just bought 2 Archos 2GB


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player using the supplied USB cable when you connect the MP3 player to the computer.

DOWNLOADING TO MEDIA PLAYER


1st of all, your Archos needs to be set to PC Hard Drive mode in the settings.
Then when you plug it into your pc, it will just show as a new drive.
You can then simply drag and drop movies, music, flash games, files etc.
The Archos accepts avi files with mp3 sound, however if you purchase the package which allows you to watch DVD's onthe Archos, then you also have a whole load of codec's which means it accepts Real Player files, Dolby Surround sound, you can copy 4.7 gb dvd's straight to it and much more.

Archos 605 wi /fi only puts music on hard drive


A couple things to note. First.
Make sure the files are the right format.
second, make sure they are in the music folder.
third... sometimes it won't read them. you can still play them here's how:

Go on your archos go to music, than at the bottom click on hard drive.... you can play everything there.... i recommend not synching it... but dragging and dropping them in by hand... i like doing things basic...

Once you have downloaded the file to your PC simply connect your archos to your pc using USB cable provided, select PC hard drive mode, and simply copy or drag and drop from one destination to the other. Your Archos usually appears as J:Archos604WiFi if you have a built in card reader if not it may appear as an earlier letter in the alphabet.
