I'm having a problem with my archos 7 v2. Two days ago, I installed the eclair firmware from the archos website. Everything seemed to be working fine.
Yesterday, I noticed that appslib had disappeared, so I followed the usual instructions to download the latest version (appslib.com/latest), but everytime I tried, I got the message:
"An SD card is required to download Appslib_2.apk"
I've never had an SD card in the device, so couldn't understand why it would ask for one now. Then I realised that literally everything I tried to download was coming up with the same error message.
So I hooked it up via usb and tried to install that way. However when I go into the file explorer on the archos, it is showing that I have literally no files at all. I can see them all when I look at it on the pc, but not on the device.
So today, I thought that I would try re-installing the firmware in case I had done something wrong. And now, it won't connect via USB. I plug it in, the PC makes the "ba-ding" noise, but it seems to think that it's a CD drive, it comes up with the "please insert a disc into drive G" when I try to open it. I'm not getting any notification in the taskbar on the device that it's connected via USB.
Sorry if these problems have already been covered elsewhere, but I've spent the whole day searching for a solution and can't find anything anywhere. I've even been on the phone to the archos technical helpdesk but I don't think the guy had ever heard seen an archos 7 as he was telling me to press buttons that don't exist. He said he would call back with a solution, and needless to say I'm still waiting.
Really appreciate any help anyone can give. Thanks in advance
