Call the number on your warranty information sheet. If you don't have it's 1877 300 8879. The weird number that it gives you when you say you forgot your password is your product key. If you want to contact online that's very important for registration.

Archos 5 internet tablet won't play youtube video from youtube them selves or via mobile youtube


Hello wilko1974, This has been an on going issue for Archos 5 users. The new youtube supports flash 10.1+ and the Archos 5 only supports 9. Unfortunately there does not seem to be a clear cut solution for this issue. Archos has not released a firmware update for this and with their new devices it there support for older devices has lowered. I have found that choosing the lower play button that appears over a video plays on Archos more often than the top button. I would recommend trying this and seeing if you get better results. Another possible solution is to open the video in a new window with the link on the top right of youtube video. This however is not on all youtube video pages and with the currently layout is on accessible when the video submitter enables it. It also help to have the latest firmware updates that can be done directly on your device. Hope this helps, Greg

Can get my archos 5 to conect to my android phone


If you mean to connect your Archos to your Android device through Wi-Fi, than, yes, you can! But, only if your android device supports the tethering feature. For example if you have an Android 2.2 (Froyo) device than you go to Settings->>Wireless & networks->>Tethering & portable hotspot and tap "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot". From the Archos, go to the the Wi-Fi settings and connect to the network you've just created. If you do not have the tethering option available, you should find out if your carrier or device manufacturer has an update for the device. Hope it helps!

Recovery code 101


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 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!
