on your player go to settings screen, then to advanced, then to format. select format, then yes. Player should reboot. Then try connecting again. iriver uses windows media player now. shouldn't need anything else.

SOURCE: system files missing

I fixed this problem for my mate, here's what I did:

1) plugged in H10 to pc that didn't have any iriver software on it
a) I've read if you press the "o" button on the iRiver H10 when connecting it will just connect as a usb mass storage device
2) the H10 now appears as a mass storage device
3) right click on the drive, and select format ( I choose quick format)
4) install the iRiverFirmware updater from http://iriveramerica.com/support/mtpupdate/
5) when you run the updater, it found the H10, then asked if the device was from USA or Europe, mine was from Europe
6) It stated that the iRiver firmware was v0.0, and would install v2.51 (I've seen v2.53 available on the european iriver website but could not download it).
7) proceed with installing the updated firmware
8) on the last screen it says, unplug to complete firmware update - NOTE press Finish first before unplugging
9) switching on the iRiver it 'rebooted' a few times and then when the menu appeared, I connected to the pc and just dropped some mp3 files into the music directory and all was okay.

hope this helps.

Mike.

SOURCE: computer won't recognize

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

SOURCE: iriver H10 "System files missing".

I agree with Heracles83's approach (thank you, it finally worked for me!). However I would like to add something.

I own the H10 20GB model.
I tried the above approach a dozen times, but could not get the format to complete, until I noticed a little blurb from the iriver USA site concerning updating the firmware. http://iriverinc.com/support/mtpupdate/

The player must be in UMS mode in order to update the firmware and, as I finally figured out, to format the drive as well.
The above link will explain how to connect the H10 to your PC via UMS mode.
I was able to format on the first try after that, and the updater worked immediately.

SOURCE: My iriver plus3 software does not detect my iriver h10 player

I had the same problem with my Lplayer, and fixed it by changing the 'connection type' in the settings menu of my player.  Now plus3 recognizes the player.

I have an error message in my iRiver and unable to use it anymore. The error message I'm getting is: Boot Failure System file has an error. To solve the problem, connect the device to compute


If it is an older model like H10, it used a a micro hard drive which may have failed mechanically. Those old hard drive devices were susceptible to shock failure due to drops. In some cases you may be able to replace the failed hard drive with a compact flash card - I believe they used the same connectors and pin outs. If it is not a hard drive model, can you get it recognized by windows drive manager to try to reformat it. There's a linux based program G-Part Ed. It's an ISO file, burn to cd or put on USB and boot pc to the cd or usb to launch linux and the software then see if it will recognize and format it as an external drive. Gibson research used to make spin rite that was able to fix some hard drive problems, might work on flash memory too.

How to fix iriver E10 it says on the screen is emergency usb


  1. If your PC does recognize the iRiver as a USB device/drive, there is an issue with the Hard Drive.
  2. If your computer doesn't recognize the iRiver as a USB device/drive and can read the files, there is an issue with the Circuitry in your e10.
  3. Turn the lock off and connect it to the usb port and press the reset button (small hole in lower left of unit, use a small object like a paperclip. The screen should change eventually to the "USB connected" screen. Disconnect the USB at the PC to get the "Ok to disconnect" message. Pull out the usb cable and hold down the "off" button. Eventually the unit will turn off. Turn it on and then off to verify it is working.
If nothing works, your iRiver needs to be returned to the manufacturer.

I have a iriver spinn mp3 and i dont know how to to put music on it can you help me


Sure, connect to your computer via proprietary USB cable that comes with the device. Your computer should automatically recognize the new Spinn device. Software is also included in order to manage music, video, & ebooks (text files). Install Iriver Plus 3. Perform media search on your computer. Select files you want to put on your Spinn. Then transfer to your device. Make sure eject your device for safe removal. Thats it.

I have no idea how to put music on my iRiver IFP-790 mp3 player


First, you should have MP3 music files on your computer. If not, download what you like or "rip" from a CD using Media player or similar application.

Then simply connect your MP3 player to a USB port on your computer. It is very likely that if you remove a cover on the player it will expose a USB connection. Plug it into your USB port on your computer. It will automatically be recognized by Windows and you can see the contents. Navigate to the music on your computer, click to copy it and then paste it onto your MP3 player. Voila, it will be there to play!
