Unless you plan on using on-line subscription services (PlaysForSure) you can just flash it the UMS firmware.
If you install the UMS firmware you will permanently LOSE Janus support
(y'know, DRM subscriptions like Napster-to-Go) as you will NOT be able
to go back to the MTP firmware (at least as of yet...)
Also do note that For the T10 there is a strange glitch. After you
install the hacked firmware the player will not work at once. You will
have to flash it again, this time using the ORIGINAL UMS firmware from
If you are still willing to do it then go here http://www.mtp-ums.net/
then here is the link to the official iRiver firmwares
You will probably want
the EST (Australian) T10 UMS v1.62 (T10_EST_UM_OK) or the Kor (Korean)
same exact problem, have had it since about 1.5 thru the ownershipwhich has effectively rendered my T10 1gb useless.
i'm guessing from my observation it has to do with internal built of the mp3 player which is affected externally by pressure on buttons and pulls on the speaker jack, when for instance using the mp3 player while running/at gym.
also, it could be from humidity/sweat rust which is highly impossible because it would not have taken it 1.5 years to start screwing up, it would have done so the very first time i used it in a gym!
I've got the same problem and wrote to iriver. Thge only suggestion they could provide me with was to replace the battery. I tried that and it didn't work. I'm at a loss alos as to how to get my T10 to power on?
Somehow the driver went missing. Click on "My Computer" and then click "view system information," then "hardware," then "device manager," then click on iRiver (it'll be there even without the driver) and then it will give you a yes/no option to look for driver software. Obviously, click "yes" but notice that you are also cued to put in a CD "if you have one." I still had the CD. It will search both the CD and online for a driver, but the computer found the driver software on the CD. Make sure you only put the CD in when cued to do so. If you don't have the CD, then contact iRiver about getting a driver download or having them send you a copy of the CD.
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".
