Re: formating

Did you reinstall the firmware? Check to see that you have a file called ihp_120.hex on the root directory. If not, you can download the latest version of the device's firmware from the support page on iriver's website. Otherwise, I suggest you try installing Rockbox firmware (

Iriver iHP-120

You can get a replecement on Ebay or at Maplins the spec is

In: 100-240V~50-60Hz 360mA
Out: 5V~2A

be careful I once fried an IHP-120 by using the wrong charger. I replaced the battery but taht wasn't the issue. I had it replaced with a IHP-140 and now my old charger has gone too. I got a replacement through the company I bought it from but they have none left.

IHP-120 MP3

You can download the software from Iriver goto support then to download and select your player. I would recommend re-formatting your player with a program such as swissknife in case you've accidentally partition it somehow. It probably wouldn't hurt to run windows scan disc after formatting(right click your player in my computer and select properties then tools then error checking and check th automatically fix errors box.

Formating problems

The H140 needs to be formatted as a fat32 file system for the players firmware to recognise it. To check which file system you have formatted to connect your player to your pc and go to > my computer >right click on your player > then click on properties. It will tell you what file system you have. Windows will only format to ntfs file systems, so if you need to reformat you will need to download Swissknife (its free :-) )and use it to reformat your player.
