MP3 Player "Corrupted"

The basic gist is that my computer is telling me my MP3 is "corrupted and unreadable".

(It's an Archos 8-gb Jukebox)

It recognises the player when it's attached but cannot open the folder. It freezes/crashes when it does.

I've tried different USB cords, different USB ports, everything I can think of.

The music on the player is fine, and I can listen to it with no problem, so I can't figure out what would cause a "corruption".

Tried all the USB ports but haven't had a chance to try another computer yet.

Tried my MP3 player on a different computer today and had the same problem. (Can't access it via USB but music plays fine.)

Do I contact the manufacturer or is there a way I can fix this?

i would, they may have a solution that doesn't involve formatting the device (not likely).
