Hi. I have an Archos 5, 250 GB. For some reason, all the CDs in it aren't in the 'album', "artist" and "genre" folders like they used to be, but are now all in just one folder, the "hard drive" folder. I don't know how that happened. How can I get my music back to the 'album', 'artist' and 'genre' folders? I looked at the online manual and on the instruction videos on my player but can't find anything that tells me how to do this. Thanks for any help.

Check the file's tags. They may have gotten erased/not transferred when the files were transferred to the Archos. This program should be able to allow you to fix them, if they are missing. It's (more likely) also possible the ARCLib got erased, so before checking tags, try this:
  • Place your Archos 5 into PC Hard Drive mode (from Settings -> Storage)
  • Tap on the Update ARCLibrary button
  • Put it back to whatever it was when it finishes

This may take a few minutes depending on the size of your library, but it may fix your problem. If it doesn't, try the tagging software.
