[Urgent!] Archos won't start up! (HDD Recovery Screen!)

Post by Arjun »

I was at a freinds house listening to msuic when I wanted to play on the Nintendo wii so I pressed shut down on the Archos and disregarded it (the battery at the time was 2 bars). After about 10 minutes I came back and I saw it still said "Shutting Down" so I pulled off my earing and reset the Archos.

Since that time the Archos will not start up! It just gets stuck at the start up screen repeatedly. I plugged it into my PC and I get the same problem.

I'm getting real worried, what do I do?

leave it charging overnight on the usb, the batt has become critically low thus not starting up the machine or looping. just plug it in and leave it alone this will trickle charge the unit until there is enough juice to fire her up.

Before checking here again I actually just let the Archos run for about 1-2mins and now it says.

HDD Recovery
usb
format disk

and theres a blue option thing over USB but it will not allow me to go up nor down or press select.

It's just sitting idley on the screen and I don't know what to do.
