Question about Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet
My archos 5 250gb is showing a "archos g6h recovery (code 101) before that it wouldnt come out of the openning screen.
A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)
B) The Archos 5 or 7:
1- Plug the unit to you computer via the USB cable.
2- The unit should start automatically and open the following page:
3- From the recovery console (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the volume control on the right of the unit (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" press the on and off button, shortly to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" but it is already plugged from point 1 - DO NOT press anything anymore on the Archos
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around seconds)
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)
D) On the Archos 5 or 7
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the USB cable until the process is finished
4- when done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot
Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.

Hello, You simply need to download the firmware for your device. I had and Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet. So I downloaded the firmware for that tablet. I then added to the Root of my Archos under where you see the folders for Video, Music.... Simply select done and unplug your device from your computer. If it is the correct firmware, then it should automatically load. If it is not the correct firmware then it want load, instead it will go back to the Recovery screen. Hopefully this helps, if not. call Archos Tech support at: Technical support by telephone: Technical Support: 1-877-300-8879 Customer Service: 1-866-489-4718 Hours : 9am - 8pm CST (Monday - Friday) 10am - 6pm CST (Saturday)
