    Hi
    I have an archos 605 80gb wifi new at Xmas and has been working fine with Vista and then suddenly the computer does not recognise it's existence. I have tried reset, I have checked the firmware, I have checked the USB ports and I have made sure I have the latest windows media player but no joy. It works fine and charges fine on the dock but will simply not appear when I plug it into the USB on either my PC or laptop. I would really appreciate some help with this as I have done everything I can think of!

    Hi
    Thanks for responding.
    No, the Archos ordinary screen comes on as though it is not plugged in to anything, and it works perfectly. When I plug the usb cable in nothing changes, there is still the main screen and no'enable' usb.

    That sounds like a faulty cable.

    If you have one of the docks try connecting the dock to the computer using a standard USB cable.
