The serial number can either be found on the back of the device, or can also be found in the android settings. to get to the serial in the android settings:

1. Touch the settings app.
2. Touch the System Settings option.
3. Touch the Device Information option.
4. In there there should be a list of device information including the serial number.

I hope this information has been helpful.

have you checked for sound mute? Settings/sounds/silent mode to see if its unchecked? if its still silent, then root software is or could be missing or deleted or last of all a hardware issue.

The solution I found to reset the hard drive. Follow these procedures:
1. Remove the battery.
2. Unscrew the 2 screws on the right side of the battery compartment.
3. Loosen the 4 screws on the other side of the unit, but be very careful not to take them out, leave part of the screw in the hole, because if you don't, you'll have a hard time putting them back later as I found out. Now I have one loose screw on the bottom left.
4. Open the back cover carefully and make sure the 4 screws on the side are still intact. Adjust these screws if you have to but make sure they don't come all the way out. After opening the cover you'll see the hard drive and you'll probably see the connecting cable is loose. Lift out the hard drive and tighten the cable.
5. Replace the cover, tighten all the screws, and you are set.
After that, my 604wifi was able to start up normally and the recovery message is gone. A new problem now is the unit will turn off by itself after about 20 seconds. I suspected it was because of the loose screw, but I just don't have the time to fool with it now, well...future project.

Yeah you need to go to the archos website and buy the cinema plug in (£14.99) if you want to play all. the only other option is to convert the avi files that you cant play. Also if you want to play any mpeg4 files and quite a few other files with different audio codecs you need the podcast plug in (again £14.99). This is the only way to be able to play everything on your archos without converting the files - it's a bit of a rip off as each set of plugins is specifically downloaded for a product key so you cant even get one from someone else - believe me I have tried for days to get them free!

Hope that helps!

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.

Yes i know syncing is the easiest way to hook up archos to download files have you tried manually like drop & drag the files into the video folders? Some video formats work even in the new archos series some don't & you have to buy plugins. I personally didn't like using windows media player it reminds me too much of itunes

You may want to change the format of the movies. The player may be able to play .avi files but sometimes it will just not play and changing the format may alleviate the problem. Follow these steps: - Follow this link and download youtube downloader free of charge - After you have downloaded and installed it please open it and go to convert a video you have already downloaded. - Select the movie you want to convert and then convert to .mp4 which should play with anything - Wait for it to convert and then drag it to your archos 5.
