Question about iRiver T10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Short Play Time with MP3 Player

I have had my IRiver MP3 player for about 9 months. During that time, it's worked fine. However, I've recently been having problems. It will only play for a short time. After a short period of maybe 1 minute or less, it stops playing. The audio never outlasts the LCD display; i.e., the LCD screen goes dark at the same time that the audio stops. It will not re-start immediately. However, after letting it sit for a while, it will re-start, but again, it only plays for a short time. I have noticed that if I hit any of the buttons on the front (volume, forward/previous, or NAVI/MENU buttons) while it is playing, it automatically goes to the playback mode display.

Re: Short Play Time with MP3 Player

Try to re-format it. on player go to settings, then advanced then format. select format, say yes and it should reboot. if that doesn't work you need to upgrade the firmware. got to, support, ultra portabale support and download firmware updater software.

i think you should try this...
if you dont already, download iriver plus 3
install it
open iriver plus 3
plug in iviver
go to tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization

this should format your iriver and replace all the original files

i reccomend only putting music, video, pictures and ebooks on via iriver plus 3

and also please make sure you safely remove the iriver each time you connect it to the computer
if you dont, there is a chance that you will screw your iriver, you may have heard of the "building library" problem, which nobody has found a solution for yet.

i hope this helps you!!
good luck!

Screw Window Media Player. Just use the included software instead. Iriver Plus 3 makes all the necessary conversions for your player, to make sure it works properly. WMP messes stuff up a lot.
