Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player
Have HP WinXP PC. My Iriver H10 20GB is not recognized by the machine. Win XP is version 5.1 (Build2600.xpclient.010817-1148) The Installation CD has only Windows Media Player 10 but no driver. Earlier, I had installed the same Iriver with my laptop (IBM, WinXP) and had no problems in the system recognizing the drive. Would be obliged to get an expert opinion on whether there is a driver that can be installed to get my system to recognize.
You could also do the "emergency connection" trick. First, plug the USB into your computer, hold down the "o" button and push the reset button with something that has a point. The computer will recognize your h10 as a hard drive. The you can sync music to your player or just drag-n-drop it. you'll probably need to use a program like "Easy H10" to update your player's database. It's easy to use and it only takes a couple of minutes to update.

OK, this problem was driving me almost to tears with frustration but have managed to bodge-solve it so hope this helps!
Right click My computer and select Properties.
Click on Hardware tab.
Click on Device Manager.
Hopefully there is a yellow question mark symbol against Iriver T30 listed under other devices or portable devices or something.
Right click this then select Update Driver.
Tell it that you are going to manually update the driver yourself.
Eventually you will have to select what type of device it is - select portable device.
Now click on MTP device and click next to install the driver.
Hopefully now it is recognised by XP in My Computer....

Try plugging in usb with the H10 turned off. Now, press the select button (with the round symbol on it) while turning the H10 on. This starts the player in 'emergency mode' and should be recognized by XP
