Re: reset button iHP 120

Nope, you're fine, it's just like pressing the reset button on your computer/playstation/whatever. It will just restart the iRiver and once it's restarted everything will be there just like it was before :)

Iriver IHP 120 taking 15 minutes to boot

your hard drive is just fine (i have a ihp100 with a 30 gb). it all depends on the amout of track and type files on the ihp -120. but getting back to speeding up your boot time (try ROCKBOX) you can still have your 120 with a less than 30 second boot up time, customize equalizer, while playing screens and more. and you are right the new players do match up to ours.

I an trying to use the voice recorder on my iHP-120

Press and hold button on left side with red dot (record)... You will see "stand by"...  Press the lowest button on right side (A-B) over and over until "source" is "int Mic"... when you are ready to record, press the left button w/ the red dot short and quick... recording will begin.  When youre ready to stop recording, press middle button (pic of square on it) on right side... that will stop it.
To find your recording, look in the "record" folder under "Audio"

have you tried playing it in ole iriver style (not rockbox). to see if you really did delete something. and if so go to and download the the last firmware you had to rebuild. and hopefully you can come back to rockbox latest version also. its just a very late suggestion. oh yeah one more do you know of any one who has a 120 as yours (you can copy theirs software, but you will have to format yours in order for it to work correctly)

be careful I once fried an IHP-120 by using the wrong charger. I replaced the battery but taht wasn't the issue. I had it replaced with a IHP-140 and now my old charger has gone too. I got a replacement through the company I bought it from but they have none left.

You can download the software from Iriver goto support then to download and select your player. I would recommend re-formatting your player with a program such as swissknife in case you've accidentally partition it somehow. It probably wouldn't hurt to run windows scan disc after formatting(right click your player in my computer and select properties then tools then error checking and check th automatically fix errors box.

Did you reinstall the firmware? Check to see that you have a file called ihp_120.hex on the root directory. If not, you can download the latest version of the device's firmware from the support page on iriver's website. Otherwise, I suggest you try installing Rockbox firmware (
