Does it boot to OS? What exactly (video, music or any file) did you try to play in the car and what EXACT message did appear on the screen?

I need to know exactly when does it says device error(during boot or connect). Is there an error code? Seems to be a hard drive problem. You could try to connect the hard drive directly to your computer with some IDE-to-USB adapter.

To extract needed files try to connect the hard drive directly to your laptop using IDE to USB adapter. It should work.

Sure, but only if you really need those files. I recommend you to buy an SSD to replace your hard disk. I'm using SSD. It is much reliable than HDD.

Sorry if this sounds stupid so I basically buy it then transfer the files to the laptop and get rid of the Archos? As it keeps breaking down

You're right. But I recommend you to get another hard drive to find out what's the reason of your problem. If it will repeat then the player is damaged. Another reason could be bad connection. So in this case you should try another USB cable.
