So I have this Archos Jukebox Studio 20. I haven’t even come close to filling it up, but I have ripped all of my CD’s onto it.
Problem is, it doesn’t turn on anymore. Even when it’s plugged into the wall with the DC adapter. So I can’t play songs on it, of course…but I also can’t transfer the songs off onto my laptop for when I get a new MP3 player.
I assume that the batteries are crapped out, won’t hold a charge etc. But when I opened the thing (voiding the warrantee, which expired several years ago anyway) the rechargable batteries in there are 1.2V instead of the usual 1.5V AA. So I tried to put some AAs in there anyway, which didn’t work.
So my question is this. Is there any way I can get my files off of there? Does anyone have any other suggestions? I’d rather not buy a whole new set of batteries from Archos if I can help it. Especially since I’m not sure that’s the problem.
I’m on a Dell Inspiron, WinXP, Pentium 4.
