I used to own the Archos AV500, 60gb, running on operating system 1.5.12 (wmdrmpd 10.0/2), and have recently upgraded to the newer version Archos AV504, 80GB, which runs on the operating system 1.6.04 (wmdrmpd10.1)
The thing i was wondering was, because i prefer the icons (i know fussy) on the AV500, as apposed to the ones on the AV504, is there a way i can change them. I have already been on the Archos website, but there is nothing there, and they dont appear to let you load earlier os's....can anyone help....????
Thanks in advance.

Hi, when this happens it usually means the operating system is corrupt, the best thing to do is to reflash your Archos, you obtain the required software and then plug into the USB port and then using the proprietary software to reflash the internal memory on the Archos to replace the operating system, and restore it to functionality, if you ONLY copy over the system files you will keep all you old settings.
You need to go to the Archos website to obtain the Firmware also there is s "How to" reflash your Archos 7.
You should be on firmware version 2.1.04 (WMDRMPD:10.1) If connected to your computeer or on WiFi then :-
Firmware + Plugins
and click on....Online Firmware Update
This version of the firmware does allow some videos. Unfortunately if the videos come up with blank screen with a red F9 in the middle this signifies a version of FlashPlayer not yet supported. We just have to wait and see if Archos are still going to support the 605 with more firmware updates or if their hands fare too ull with the new Archos 5 Android.
i had this problem recently when charging on the DVR docking station, i switched it off, took the battery off, left it for a shirt time then pressed the reset, it took a few attempts but eventually it restarted
This problem seems to occur when the device overheats. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but all my videos set at 720 by 480 wont play when the device is left running for a long period of time. The smaller video files, however, still play. I think it deals with the amount of system resources required for such files to play. If you turn the device off completely by going to menu, power, and turn off device, and leave it sit for 30 minutes, all files should play properly when you turn it back on.
As a suggestion, DO NOT leave your Archos powered on and on the dvr station. This causes the device to constantly run, and if you havent noticed the Archos operates at an extremely high temperature.
I might have got this wrong but i thought there a fix you could download from the Archos site,i had the same problem with my mate's one only got to watch 1 and a half episode of the tv series of Heroes,i also ordered a battery type charger that could give it up to 2-3 charges while you travel.
