Question about iRiver MP3 & Digital Media Players

8 Answers

I have an iriver h100 wit h40gb harddrive which operates with a simple drag and drop system with windows. Currently it won't allow transfer of files from a pc to the player, it begins to transfer and then nothing happens. The player works fine apart from the fact that I can't transfer anything onto it. I have formatted the drive through windows and the player itself, there were no problems doing this but it didn't solve the transfer issue, I have also scanned the disk for errors using windows and it returned no errors, can you help?

    Hi

    The file transfer box pops up, the transfer begins, it will transfer one or two songs and then the bar on the file transfer box just freezes.

  • Ganesh81 Nov 14, 2008

    There is no lock and the hold switch is definitely off. It usually transfers one or two songs then stops.

    Hi, I tried it on my pc and laptop, the problem persists, one uses xp and the other vista. The battery is fully charged and fine, however I was using the AC cord when trying transferring & formatting.

  • Ganesh81 Nov 14, 2008

    Same problem after formatting and resetting!

  • Ganesh81 Nov 17, 2008

    Have tried all the usb ports on the system, it cannot be the cable as I use different cables with the laptop and the same problem occurs

I am guessing that the USB cord might be at fault here

did you try connecting the Media player using a different
USB cord?

Hi,

A couple of ideas you can initially try/explore:

  • try the iRiver H100 with another USB port of your PC, or in another PC and note if problem persists;
  • disable the Power Management of the PC's USB port;
  • enable Legacy/DOS USB feature of your PC in the CMOS/BIOS.
Additionally, have you considered a firmware update (if ever available)?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

After formating and still your problem persist then try it to another computer which operates windows xp too and see if it works aside from your computer. if that thing has a reset button then reset it after formating. give that also a full charge cause sometimes low battery will give disfunction on formatting.

thank you for using fixya

Check that the player is not locked from writing.

There must be a small tab on the player side.

    If you are using a usb cable (eg extension or usb hub) remove the hub, or replace the cable, just in case.

    transfer one or two songs and then freezes, that means that there are bad sector in the solid state disk (the flash memory).
    If you already formatted (complete format, not fast one) the disk and it did not work, then the unit is faulty.
    Try doing a complete format from windows, then possibly test the MP3 on a different computer, if it does not work, the flash memory (disk ) is faulty.

    If the MP3 is less than one year old you can get a replacement, if it is over one year old, you can probably buy a warranty extension for a small fee, call Iriverusing the phone number listed on the manual, or find contact on website : Iriver

What happens when you try to move a file into the drive?

Posted on Nov 14, 2008

  • Ekse Nov 14, 2008

    That does sound like a faulty drive, plug the player into your computer, open my computer and find what the drive letter of the drive is. for example E:




    now press start -> then run -> type in Cmd




    If the drive letter is E:


    in the shell window, type in CHKDSK /X /F /R E:




    it will scan the whole drive, report back with results.

I found an updated firmware file (Don't know where I got it) and once it was installed I could see and transfer music files from Windows Media Player 11 to my iriver ifp 790. You can email me at saslats@roadrunner.com if you would like me to send you the file.

Downloading videos onto the iriver E100


Software / Media Transfer The E100 comes packaged with a disc containing iriver plus 3 media player, firmware updater, video converter, and Windows Media Player 11. If you have owned an iriver player, you are familiar with this software with the included iriver media player. This is a standard media player much like any other but has a few features catering to the iriver family of players, such as a firmware updater, ebook txt manager, and video converter. This media player is a bit different from Windows Media Player but still is straightforward and easy to use. If you don’t care for iriver’s media player you can always use any other MTP based media player to manage playlists and load your E100 since also included on the disc is a video converter and firmware updating utility.
If you don’t like to use media players to transfer the E100 will allow you to select either MTP or MSC transfer mode. This means it is drag and drop and also compatible with any OS. Drag and drop will work fine in MTP mode as well, but only if you are using Windows XP SP2 or Vista.

and the difference between e10 / e100 your guess is just as good as mine

Device driver for iRiver IFP-899 on Vista

I don't know how to load music from the internet to my new mp3


the best way for that is to read your manual.

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel1.gif Pentium class PC or higher
CD-ROM drive
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.

TRANSFER MUSIC
To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data1.gif folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.

I need a program


You don't actually need a program to access the iriver on your computer as long as there is a fresh battery in it, a USB connection, and using windows explorer. Iriver has the capabilities to drag and drop files into it. Just goto "my computer" (on your desktop) and look for "removable device", which will be your MP3 player.
