Hi, 2 years ago i broked my screen archos 404, in this time i played music and used for copy data (like usb drive).
But 6monts ago i formated (of my computer) fat32 to ntfs and then i cant use the archos (like usb drive).
i cant see options for format because my screen lcd is broked.

if I understand correctly you have formatted your 404 as ntfs? You should be able to format it as fat32 on a windows pc as a usb drive since windows allows formatting of drives smaller than 32 GB as fat32. Otherwise there are a few free programs to format any size drive as fat32.

If the lcd is broken why can't you see the menu on the TV?

The sequence to use the 404 internal format is
1 switch on, give time for home screen
2 press menu left once to get to setup screen
3 press down twice to get to system icon
4 press ok to open system menu
5 press down once to get to repair and format tools
6 press ok to enter format tools
7 press down once to get to format hard drive
8 press ok to enter format
9 press up once to confirm ok
10 press ok to format, all data will be erased.

Hi the cable you describe does sound like the archos cable, yellow (video) and white/red (audio) phono plugs for TV composite in and a 4 pole 3.5mm plug for the 404 headphone socket. The switch under the on/off switch is to switch between LCD and TV output. Strange that both the screen and TV out do not work - maybe there is a fault in the video electronics?
