My iRiver has stopped communicating with my PC

Please help! A reward awaits! My iRiver has stopped communicating with either of my PCs. Both say 'faulty USB device', though the iRiver says it's connected. Can I load Windows 98 drivers and try to do it by USB 1.0? greetings from Sheffield UK John S

My pc cannot see my iriver

You must have the proper device driver installed... or your PC will not recognize it (won't know how to talk to it).

My iRiver T30 has always had difficulty communicating with my PC, and has only once successfully been able to upload files onto my pc, after MANY attempts. Any suggestions?

There may be a driver issue as I've personally had problems with my iRiver IFP mp3 player and would try to load the driver every time I connected the player to my Windows based computer.

Assuming you have a Windows based operating system, I would completely uninstall the iRiver Music Manager in add/remove programs in the control panel, restart the computer and try reinstalling the program again.

IFP-380T MP3 Player Problem (doesn't turn it on)

Here's my shortcut:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

Here is a suggestion from the iRiver website - you may want to visit that website, b/c their "Ask Alice" tech support feature is actually quite good:
The players come with a CD that contains drivers and software that enable the player to download data from a PC. Insert the CD in the computer's CD drive, and connect the player to the PC with the USB cable. (Help with USB cable connections) The PC should automatically detect the device. The New Hardware Installation Wizard will automatically launch and the installation process will start.
If the above procedure does not occur on your PC, please manually install the driver. Use the links below for instructions:
If you still have trouble, the issue may be with the computer chipset. iriver has tested many PCs and discovered that this only occurs in a small number of main boards.

My understanding, as a new user, is that IRiver plus 3 only communicates with the player via UMS mode, which is not the default. Windows Explorer and Windows Media Player only communicate through MTP mode. If you change from MTP (the default) to UMS, it will reformat the player and delete all your files.

In other words, do not use iriver plus 3 unless that is the only software that you want to use. Boing back to MTP mode after a sync or download will then delete all THOSE files you just downloaded.

I just say NO to Plus 3.

Good luck.
