What format did you rip it to? Is it supported by the player. Try converting the files to mp3 then adding them.

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

This is generally due to failed firmware updates, etc....here is something to try that has worked for some others:
1. connect the archos to the PC
2. click on repair
3. click on done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in your windows (be patiant it takes some time)
4. once you see the drive, open it and make sure the System folder is empty, if not delete the file that exists there.
5. download firmware from archos website and put the firmware update file directly on the root of the archos drive
6. click repair again on the archos and done.
I've been told this does not always work on the first attempt, so give it a couple of tries if the first attempt fails.

Can I change the battery on my archos 605

You can get a replacement battery here.
http://www.newmp3technology.com/605-battery.htm

By the looks of it, your need to open it up and unsolder the battery contacts and then resolder them.

If you don't feel up to doing it yourself, then try anywhere that repaires PC, laptop and such.
Check if they will do it and buy the battery yourself, might be cheeper that way.
Also check ebay incase it's cheeper there.

My Archos charges but doesn't switch on. I've tried everything I think the hard drive might be messed up. How much would it cost to repair my Archos 605 30gb Wifi.

You could contact Archos, but I gather their minimum cost for repair is $85. Plus shipping and parts.
A suitable hard drive would probably be around $100.
Amazon has a new Archos 7, 8gb wifi + 16GB microSD for around $200.
While the memory is smaller it is more rugged and better suited than a hard drive for a portable device.

Bbc i player won't play on archos 5

that is because it it incompatible with the version of flash that is used by the archos. unless archos change that with a future update or iplayer suddenly becomes more backwards-compatible in the future then don't expect this to change.

How to change Archos XS202 battery?

Hi !

I found this site which sells batteries for archos xs202 :
http://www.newmp3technology.com/xs200+batteries.html

Then you have to remove the covers (back and front) of your archos. Then melt the tin that retains the battery cables with a soldering iron.
Then melt the tin again to fix the new battery cables to the motherboard and you're all set. I did it this very morning without problems.

Transfer file to Archos 5 using usb port on DVR Station Dock

On your Archos 5 go into tools -> Files and you should have two Archos 5 tabs. Change one to your USB stick and the other to the Archos 5 and copy and paste. I have not tested this, but this should work.  Good Luck.
