Here is the fix: Boot Failure

Sometimes just downloading and following the procedure in Boot Failure does not work, because the system files cannot be overwritten, in this case follow the additional instructions here to delete manually the system files.

I have an error message in my iRiver and unable to use it anymore. The error message I'm getting is: Boot Failure System file has an error. To solve the problem, connect the device to compute


If it is an older model like H10, it used a a micro hard drive which may have failed mechanically. Those old hard drive devices were susceptible to shock failure due to drops. In some cases you may be able to replace the failed hard drive with a compact flash card - I believe they used the same connectors and pin outs. If it is not a hard drive model, can you get it recognized by windows drive manager to try to reformat it. There's a linux based program G-Part Ed. It's an ISO file, burn to cd or put on USB and boot pc to the cd or usb to launch linux and the software then see if it will recognize and format it as an external drive. Gibson research used to make spin rite that was able to fix some hard drive problems, might work on flash memory too.

How do I download my YouTube playlist too itunes


There is a key over ride position if your boot becomes locked due to electrical failures.you have to turn the key in the boot lock that bit further then push in the barrel.

Picture the slot position something like ten past eight rather than 6 oclock

Boot error problem. everytime i swich it on it says boot error


the media player's firmware which contains bootable files is seems corrupted. probable cause is virus or electrical failure of firmware. you can scan the player by computer which has latest updated anti-virus. if that not work try to format it. you can get the firmware if it is available from the manufectures web site, try to reload it.

Boot failure or just nothing?

Boot failure would be the hard disk.
Just nothing would indicate that the system board is dead.

You don't mention using the mains power adaptor.

You might need to change your format from NTS something to FAT32. Hook up your iriver to the comp. and right click the iriver drive..scroll down to format and click the arrow to chang it. My brother told me how but i still haven't tried it yet b/c he said that i needed a older comp. to do it. but i believe it'll work once i have the option to choose FAT32.
