XClef 20GB MP3 Player

I'd gone back to using this when my iRiver X20 had to be returned to the vendor because of problems. On switching the unit on it freezes during the start-up process at around the same place each time - about a quarter of the way along the progress bar. I can switch the unit off, but that's as much as I can do. Any suggestions? I am in a completely music-free zone and since I use it to combat a sleep disorder and tinnitus I am quite lost at present.

Many thanks in advance.

SOURCE: IRiver X20 Docking station

IRiver does not make a proprietary dock for this player; other manufacturers do not make them for IRiver because iRiver is a small player. You can take your IRiver into a Best Buy or other shop and test it in another company's dock, but it is not guaranteed to work. This is the only truthful answer I can give you.

SOURCE: How do i add album art to iriver x20?

if your using wmp11 you should just be able to drag and drop.
if not right click the song/album and go to advanced tag editor, pictures and then add manually.

half the time it just wont come up because the tag doesn't read properly and the other half the album art that wmp11 downloads and applys automatically will come up!

its kind of up to chance! if you're lucky it works if not live with it its the X20!

ps the iriver plus 3 and itunes also can apply album art

SOURCE: My Xclef HD-500 will not boot up.

My OH finally solved this himself today! You need to update your firmware - just Google for Xclef HD500 Firmware and you'll find plenty of sites. He went to www.emmeau.com/xclef and downloaded firmware version 1.097 from the firmware section. This is an oldish version but I gather the latest ones can give some bother - and all I was wanting was my Xclef working again. You'll find full instructions there, too, but you'll need to download a couple of files - connect the XClef by the USB port and the power adapter (very importan!!!t)and then copy the two files into the "Firmware" folder of the Xclef. (If you go to My Computer you can see the connected Xclef there as another drive of your computer, and can look at all the folders and files, as you'll no doubt be aware). Do a USB safe removal in the system tray and unplug the USB cable, power on the Xclef - the firmware will update and it switches itself off automatically. Power on the Xclef again, press 'Menu' key for a couple of seconds, go to 'set-up', then 'system', then 'system initial' then 'OK' then switch off the Xclef and everything should be fine next time you use it. HOPE THIS HELPS!

SOURCE: iRiver X20 not reading SD card

yes this is correct, you can only have the same size memory card as what your iriver was originally. eg when I bought mine it was a 2GB so there for I could only add a 2GB memory card in it giving me a total of 4GB. if you buy a SD card of the same GB you wont have a problem

Upgrade Iriver h10 20gb with V2.51firmware


Go here:
http://www.iriver.com/index.asp?code=0302
...and search for H10; look for the correct configuration for your unit in the small-font listing under [MTP] H10 5GB/6GB/20GB Firmware V2.51 - US & EU (which is probably H10_20GC_ENG_MT.ZIP if you're in the US).
Then search the site for Firmware Updater. Dowload it, unzip it, and run iriver Firmware Updater Setup.exe. Follow the steps on the screen. You might lose your data and have to reload all of it back onto the player, though. Good luck!

I need system files for my iRiver H10 20GB MP3 player


hard drive is probably bad -- common problem. cheapest solution is tobuy as-is h10 from ebay with a working hard drive (perhaps it has atouchpad problem), open the unit up and replace the drive.

See this forum for info on how to open the player with a torx tool and a plastic pry unit. forum

Planb - sell unit on ebay in as-is condition and use money toward a topnotch 20gb refurb unit for about $30-50 from sellers like metromania

I need to find another CD Rom(?)


I'm not certain what do you mean by "instructions", but I presume you meant "drivers"...

On the link below you'll find:
  • iRiver Plus 3, software and driver [older and newer version; try the newer first
  • Movie Converter
  • iRiver LDB Manager [lyrics related]

Here's a link:

Downloading movie length DVD to iriver x20


Yes, you need to convert all your movies to a format iRiver and understand and play.

Here's a link:
Movie Converter for iRiver and instructions

I'm not sure whether Movie Converter supports original DVD files. If that is not the case, then you'll have to convert DVD video into a format that iRiver X20 can use, and then feed that new video to Movie Converter.

However, that would be a bit redundant: to save on time and quality, you could use other video Conversion tools, such as SUPER:

http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

After loading your DVD, you set the parameters to mirror those accepted by your iRiver model. In case of iRiver X20, those parameters are:

Extension: AVI [[also known as container]]
Video Codec: WMV9 SP, MPEG-4 SP [[MPEG-4 = XVID, DIVX]]
Video Resolution: max 320 × 240
Video Framerate: max 30 fps
Video Bit Rate: max 512 kbps

After successful conversion, upload your new video file to your iRiver X20 and play it back. If it plays [and plays correctly] - then congratulations - it works! If it does not play, then you might have made a mistake while setting the output parameters in SUPER.

Hope it helps. Rate me. Thanks.

Iriver X20- playlists and videos


yeah, basically all i did was change my settings to MTP.
then i went into internal hardrive (just in normal usb mode)
i selected the songs i wanted and right-clicked (make sure to do this one one of the songs you selected) in the options that come up it should say "create playlist" (in bold) i clicked that, it wouldn't let me rename the playlist... but it worked fine... and now they come up in the right place, i didn't even use Iriver plus 3.
