Iriver PMC 120: Problem with Sync and Movie downloads
I git the PMC 120 off of ebay. And I am having a 2 issues. No.1: In media player 10, I will drag items into the need to sync section to the right, when I click on it will not only start to sync the items I drug over, but also pictures and albums, and a bunch of other stuff that I did not want on my player. How can I avoid this, and is there a way to just sync up what you want. (I have an iriver clix, and didn't run into that problem). No. 2: I am not sure the process of putting movies onto the PMC-120. Normally for my iriver Clix, I would convert movies in AVI format through the "Iriverter", and then just drag them to the Iriver Movies file, and that seemed to work just fine. However I tried that with the PMC, and didn't seem to work, the file did not appear on the device. It stored it on the device whe nI browse through the files on the computer, but it does not show up as a file when I try to play movies. I am stuck.

Here's the link for the user manual if you need it;
check page 137 of the pdf and try the restore to original settings.
do you have the setup cd? - it has troubleshooting for the unit, which is not available on the website
there are no drivers available, it uses windows media player as a driver, but the manual and the support site;
both claim that you need windows media player 10, not 11 to synchronise. you can download it from this link;
or install it from the setup cd
just uninstall wmp11 first.
many of this type of unit and mp3 players etc have problems with wmp 11, hopefully reverting to 10 will allow you to sync
Hope this helps :)
You need to use windows media converter (under the windows media folder) and convert all videos to WMV format and you have to use 320X240 output resolution, 800kbps sound quality. Anything else will result in a format out of specification error. Now where to move those video files is a mystery as there is no video folder. You can move all pictures into the pic library, etc. Windows Media Player 10 is designed to natively pick this device up and make synchronizing easy. when I plugged my Ebay PMC-120 in, Windows media player tried to sync all media files to my device, pictures, music, windows sound effects, etc. Should not be an big deal if you have the correct USB cable, mine came with one. Iriver.com has the software, but you have to go into the update software area of the site and there is a link to the master program in a set of upgrade instructions, no other place that I looked. Not Vista compatible unless you download the installation program and set its compatability to winXP BEFORE you run it. And stick with WMP 10 as it was around when this device was made.
You're getting the first and second screen, but the third screen that shows those tools when it's fixing a disk error doesn't come up?
It either didn't find anything wrong, or it did and couldn't fix it.
You should get in touch with the company.
