Question about iRiver T10 MP3 Player

Iriver T10 will not allow me to add songs

My iriver T10 will not allow me to add songs to it. I was able to initially load music onto it, however, now when I connect to my computer, I am told that my MP3 device is recognized, but when I try to xfer music to it, I cannot. When I look in Window Explorer under My Computer, I see the iriver T10 device. When I open it, instead of the music, recorded, voice, etc. folders that it normally has, all I see is FAT16 System. If I click on this, it hangs my Windows Explorer session (my wife has the same model of iriver and does not have this problem). Any advice? Many thanks.

Re: iriver T10 will not allow me to add songs

The updater that I could find directly via iRiver support did not work, but based on one of the other tips, I googled for the Version updater ([MTP] iriver Firmware Updater for MTP devices).

I recommend that you try the "normal" updater from the website (maybe yours is not an MTP version), and if that can't recognize your player, try the updater from the link above.

Note: The updater seemed to hang at 50% for over 5 minutes... I gave up and unplugged it. Then it asked me if I wanted to upgrade the firmware. "OK," I said. It took a few minutes. The screen went blank. I put in a fresh battery. Turned it on. It works. I was able to use Media player 11 to synch some songs to it.

BTW: It did blow away all the songs on the device, even though I chose "update" instead of "recover".

Re: iriver T10 will not allow me to add songs

I have been using T10 firmware v. 1.23 since i bought my T10 about 2 years ago. Last night i experienced the same problem everybody else experienced. What changed was my computer, not my T10. With WinXP SP2 and WMP10 everything worked fine. Due to unfortunate circumstances w/ my PC, i had to upgrade to WinXP SP3 and WMP11. Now my T10 ran into problems.

Solution: Download iriver firmware updater and update the T10's firmware to latest firmware. (for me I went from 1.23 to 1.77)

T10 works fine now

Re: iriver T10 will not allow me to add songs

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. Not a bad idea to upgrade firmware in either case. Your music will be lost when you format but you can simply re-load it from your music manager on your PC.

I need the software for my iriver so i can put more music onto it. Its an iriver ifp-790 256mb


Iriver doesnt give any specialised software for copying songs into it..
To copy songs into the player just connect it to the computer and your player would be detected as a portable music player or Mass storage device, in bith the cases you can find your device int the My computer,
Navigate to My computer open the newly added device and copy the required songs into it and you can enjoy listening it..

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
Thanks for using FiXya

Can i get the steps to load music files on to my iriver please i can find a way to down load my music

It's a fairly simple process. First, download and save your songs of choice in a folder you can remember and access easily. Secondly, plug in the iriver (or any mp3, really). My iriver has "power only, power and play and power and data" options. I think you have to select the "power and data". If done correctly, the mp3 screen will have something like "USB connected". Now open "my computers". Find and copy desired songs. Now go back to my computers and open the iriver folder (I think it's in removable storage, I'm not quite sure). Get to the music folder (can't remember what it's called) and paste your songs. Eject hardware, unplug, done!

PS: This is for Windows only.

Tansferring Songs

Your problem sounds different from the one I had, but you might try the solution that worked for my problem: Go to a computer that has Windows Media Player Version 10 (not version 11), use iRiver's firmware update tool to install firmware version 1.77. Then, for me at least, my T10 worked on Windows Media Player Version 11 computers.

Mp3 player no instructions

go to click on support, then ultra portable support, then T10. download user manual. You should also be able to download a music manager for loading music onto your player from the website. Windows media player works well. you can also use Rhapsody.
