I have an Archos 404. I am trying to sync it using Windows Media Player 11 under Widows XP. I am using Windows Media Device mode. When I try to sync it, it tried to sync for a while, then the Archos will reboot itself.
I have sent the unit back to Archos and they could not reproduce the problem. Earlier today I rebooted my PC, killed all unnecessary processes, and it synced OK. But now that I removed a playlist from the sync list, the problem is happening again.
I want to avoid reformatting the hard drive, since I do have enough files on it for now, and don't want to risk losing them if I can't sync again.
