Common problem with mp3 players, not just iRiver. Unless you are unusually careful with them - as in, sit still and don't move, this is something you can expect going forward. If you are experiencing the -sound out of only one earphone problem- then the mp3 player itself is faulty and needs to be replaced. If it just sounds scratchy, then sit still and don't move. Sad, but true. 3 times in 4 months is a bit excessive.

that's typical for this mp3 player - probably sounds tinny - nothing you can do about it

Did my BATTERY short, or my whole PLAYER?

I have yet to see an Mp3 player that can survive a water drop. You can "dry out" the player, and it may work sometimes. Replacing the battery most likely will not fix.

same problem with mine right now -- I find if you charge it fully then reset it multiple times between testing it then the sound works about 50% of the time. Havent found a real solution yet though.

I would recommend you to format..There are two ways you can format the player..
1) using windows media player
2) the player itself..

To format the device using windows media player..
Assuming that you are running windows XP/WMP11
Open your windows media player
Click on your sync tab
your device should be listed on the right side...
then right click on it and hit format...
Once format completed unplug the player and plug it back in..

To format the player using the player itself

To format the player using the device itself..
go under Menu, then click on setting, then there should be a format option if there isnt a format option under setting you will need to click under system info and look for format.. When the format is finished, the player will turn off

Then you will need to get a firmware upgrade for the get a firmare upgrade follow the link below...

Thank You

P.S. Please rate accordingly...

Player spontaneously shuts off (battery is charged!)

Hi. I recommend a firmware upgrade. You can obtain this by doing the following: 1) Connect the player to your computer with the USB cable. 2) Wait for "idle" to be displayed on the player screen. 3) Double-click the file that you downloaded from the Rio website. The update should take approximately 30 seconds to load. and here is the link for your firmware upgrade file. Good Luck

Whole time

Sounds very much like a failure of the player's hard-drive itself, rather than something you did. If the unit is still under warranty, replace it.
