Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

IRiver H10 20 GB

I cannot shut off my one year old iRiver H10 after downloading songs from Windows media player 11. After getting a new hard drive and Windows XP Pro I could not go back to Media Player 10. When I try it says that my version of windows is not compatible. No problem downloading songs but afterwards there is no way I can properly detach the USB cable and when I do out of desperation I cannot even shut off the player. It stays on with "USB connected" in the display. I finally end up resetting the darn thing. It is fine afterwards but I am afraid it will only take that for so long before it dies. Can anybody help me, please???? Vera

Not getting software to connect iriver mp3 player to connect with pc

the simplest player is windows media player 11 cos it sorts out all your songs into folders...
if your wanting to see the actual folders use iriver plus 3, it comes in the pack with the iriver. however the program is slow and doesnt work as effectively as wmp11.

Iriver S10

If you want to copy music from cd to the S10, just use Windows Media Player to rip the cd, creating eg WMA files on your hard disc. Then copy them to the S10. Don't need any iriver software.

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.
