Question about iRiver X20 MP3 Player

External memory - sd card recognition on pc??

I have an X20 iriver and i purchased a 2gb micro sd card when i bought the device. i have inserted the card and formatted it using the x20, however when connecting to pc only the device itself is recognised, not the external 2gb card.

i have tried using windows explorer (i normaly just drag and drop to the music file) and also iriver plus 3 program, neither of which recognise the micro card. when browsing using the device it recognises both an internal and external memory.

how do i get my pc to recognise the sd card so i can store files on that?

    vista stopped recognising the sd card in my camera. Works great in xp to travel drive to vista. What a pain.

If it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver

I added a 2gb mirco SD card to my Sansa e270 6.0gb player, but the memory is still only showing 10mb of the original 6.0 gb available for use. How do I get the Sansa to recognize and use the 2 gb mirco SD...


Hi,when you purchase a new micro SD card before use, youwill need to format the memory card so that you will be able to know the actual size of the Micro SD card by checking the details after formatting it.

After formatting the micro SD card and checking the details, if you still do not see the accurate size which is about 1.88mb or the about, that means the micro SD card you bought needs to be replaced. Not a good one.

Have a nice day.

How do i insert the memory card


Hello,

All support for iRiver can be found their site:
http://www.iriverinc.com/lounge/loungeList.asp

The direct download link for the English manual in zip format:
http://211.39.137.201//download.asp?filename=2008111114270150302.zip&filepath=/file/Down/
Right click the link above and select Save target as, to save the zip file onto your computer. After the download unzip the file with winzip or winrar to see the manual in pdf format.
On top of the player there's a cover. The micro SD card should be inserted behind the cover, upper side of the player. On page 14 and 15 of the manual is told how to use the micro SD card.

IRiver X20 USB port is broken


hmmm....
well u can buy yourself a micro sd card and use that...
as long as all the menu files ect are still on ur working x20 u can just slot in a micro sd with ur new music!
If you no longer want to listen to some some songs u can just format the internal memory in the settings > advanced menu.
it's a little bit annoying like swapping the batteries but it means that it's function is salvagable.
so to answer ur question it isn't technically dead so long as u have a way to charge ur x20 and update ur music photo's ect...
im not too sure what u mean by lists though...
if ur wanting to know whether the port is salvagable im guessing probably not.
if its just a wiring solder problem and ur compotent in solder work then u can try if ur willing to risk it.
but i probably wouldn't

Cannot format external memory card.


Hi There

# Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
# 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
# 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
# 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
# 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
# 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

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

Micro sd 4gb card problems.


Check the Sansa tutorials at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1468
to make sure you have followed all the steps first.

In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.

Same problem on a 2GB x20 I just bought. Easy to get things into the device, but nothing recognized as playlist either using iriver plus3 or Media Player.

Unable to format external Memory


From what I understand, the player can only support SD cards up to 2GB.

4GB micro sd card.


According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.

Sync to player and memory card without duplicates


I got this from:http://www.livedigitally.com/2005/06/27/sandisk-sansa-e130-the-micro-version-of-the-ipod-mini/ Create two playlists with names such as 1. SANSA Internal and 2. SANSA 2GB (assuming your SD card is 2gb). Load songs into each playlist. Edit the sync properties for each drive to only sycn to those playlists. Sync!
