Re: really strange playback issue

This may help with the repeating song problem...Well if you are using the native player, you can check if the music player (SETTINGS) play mode is set to all; with "Repeat & Shuffle" set to normal. With the other issues, you might try to update both media libraries first. (Look in settings -> Device...

Re: Archos 48 won't stay mounted

Can anyone help? The only this I can think of is that maybe your Windows OS is turning off that USB port, during a certain period of inactivity? I seem to remember that you may check this in Device Manager to see that all USB ports never get disabled (power saving mode might be active). Also, you c...

Re: Hard drive or Battery problem

Sounds like your battery needs replacing. My 605 lasted 2 years. It would start up to the Archos logo then shut down. New battery fixed mine.

In my experience, even the battery doc connected to the a power adapter doesn't help. Maybe its because the power supply just aids in charging and isn't directly powering he device.

Hey guys. I've had the same problems for a while now. I haven't used my Archos 5 a lot, and what happened is that one day the screen bulged up even though it wasn't under any heat... If your screen is still working, you can probably salvage your archos by getting a replacement battery. Then by usin...

If you can startup normally, use the supplied usb cable and connect directly to your pc to copy all your files. If not, you'll need to search the forum for a dissassembly guide so that yo...

Re: stuck at startup screen and no recovery

When you mentioned "beeping" noises; did you mean "clicking" noises instead? If so, many have reported hard drive failure with "clicks." First make sure it is fully charged, then try starting it again. If you are having charging issues or depleted battery problems, then it is possible that the batte...
