Hi, if this is a generic mp3 player - they are more flexible than the apple ipod and MUCH cheaper! I use 3 different types. Firstly commect it to the computer, If you are using win xp on then you won't need a driver. The computer will tell you in the bottem right hand side of the screen that it has found new hardwear. When it says it's ready to use start my computer (double click) ans there will be an extra icon in there called 'removable disk'. Double click on the disk and you will see that it's just like a hard disk. drag and drop mp3's into the folder and voila! you have music on the mp3 player.There may be more than one new icons in my computer - if so, only one will work, leave the other one alone as it holds system files for the mp3 player. NEVER format the mp3 player of use defrag on it - it ,makes them inoperable. just delete the files held in it when not needed. The mp3 player can also be used as a standard memory stick, just drag and drop the files you want to save / transfer etc onto it's window.if you want to turn your cd's into mp3's goto and download and run the audiograbber FREEWARE and it neasily converts audio cd's into mp3's on your hard disk ready for use in thye mp3 player. If you get stuck using audiograbber then let me know and I'll talk you through it

Download and install Itunes( and then put in a few of your favorite CDs and Itunes will add them to a library then plug in your MP3 player and when it shows up in the list, you can drag the songs you want right onto it, and they will add!

Unable to sync new music to player

I had a similar problem with my daughter's mp3 player, here is how I was able to fix it:

1. download the firmware software from here
2. unzip & install the software from step 1.
3. remove the battery from your mp3 player
4. start the software
5. hold down the play/pause button while attaching the mp3 player (via usb cable) to your computer
6. once the software's button labeled "start" is activated you can set down the mp3 player (you don't need to hold the play/pause button anymore).
7. check the box to format your data area (this will remove the mp3s, but is needed to get this to work properly again)
8. Click start and follow the on screen instructions

This worked for me... also, make sure your directory names + filenames are not overly long as this seems to be part of what is causing this problem.

How do i start?

Hook it to your computer. Go to My Computer and select the external drive device..which is your mp3 player. Then open your music folder on your computer and drag the music to the appropriate folder on your mp3 player. Make sure the extension on the music is .mp3 or it will not play. Once the music is loaded, unhook the mp3 player and you should see your newly loaded songs on the player.

How do i put music on????

You may need iriver software. However may be able to through my computer. If you haven't tryed this process read the following below.

First click on "Start" then "My Computer" now find your mp3 player on there if the name hasn't been modified it should come under the name of "Removable Disk" once you have found it double-click on that then you'll be in your mp3 player now get music off your computer you wish to put on and simply just copy and paste them into your mp3 player, that's all there is to it.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
