IRiver H10 Problem...

I have had my IRiver for over a year now, it has worked flawlessly up unitil this point. Now, when i turn it on, it says "system Initializing.. Please Wait" This usually comes up after the battery is accidently disconnected. It usually comes up for a minute or two, and then goes away and it works fine. Now, when it comes up, it doesnt go away, it just runs untill it shuts itself off. Can someone PLEASE help me! Thanks.

    My Iriver Does The same Thing, the "System Initilizing" screen will apear and the "Anolog Clock" runs continuisly. I figure it has something to do with the boot loader that starts the firmware every time you turn the playerr on.

Mine went south this weekend as well...did the 'system initializing' screen, then the animated 'clock' appears, rotating hand turning and turning...at that point, even the power button doesn't work to turn it off...have to pop off the battery. I had just finished reformatting it last week with the latest firmware. I agree, the microdrive is lunched...I decided today to purchase a new MP3 player that uses flash memory instead of a hard drive...very disappointed :-(

IRIVER WONT WORK AAAAHHH HELP!!!!!? my iriver wont work when i try to turn it on it comes up and says system files missing to restore the system files, connect to iriver plus wat dose that mean i have...


Hello,

When system files are missing on the player, you will need to reinstall the FIRMWARE.

When looking online for the connection type for the H10 / H10JR, I can see 2 CONNECTION TYPES for the H10 / H10JR:
1. MTP, when using Windows Media Player 11 ( WMP11 ), for the H10.
2. iRiver Plus, when using iRiver PLUS, for the H10JR.

The connection type determines what software on the computer will be used for transferring media.
Each software on the computer needs corresponding firmware on the player to be installed.
When the player itself comes up with the information to connect to iRiver PLUS, this is the correct software for this device probably. Then the device is a H10JR.

When not having the program iRiver PLUS, go to the iRiver support site, for the download:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/index.asp?code=0302
In the left column click Plus3 and go for the download.
Run iriver plus 3 and then select [Tools > Portable Device > Firmware Upgrade] from the menu.


Need more help ? Just post a comment.
In case you have the other model player, the H10, let me know if you need assistance for its recovery.

Iriver h10 when switch on it shows system file missing connect h


I'm not sure my solution can help you or not.
I've got this message too but after I formated H10 by Windows.

First backup all files by window explorer.
Open iriver plus and go to > Option > Portable Device Initialization.
This function will delete all data, Please sure that you already backup all of your data from H10.
After initialize process finished, it will ask you to disconnect and connect it agian.
------ Steps below, I can't explain it clearly. May be you will not have the same results as me. I hope it can rise you some ideas how it comes.

I followed that instruction but after I disconnected it again and turned on, expected that msg will disappear, IT's NOT! a bit freak out.
Ok claim down,
I tried to turn it off but I can't then I pushed its battery out and put it back and turned on, that msg showed up again.
Then I connected H10 to Iriver plus again and it upgrades firmware automatically.

At the end after I disconnected and turn on my H10 it works perfectly.

I'm not a native English so my language could make you confused, any questions you can contact me. :)

Iriver H10 - DB Open Error


one idea...
connect player to your pc using the ums trick
What is the UMS trick on IRiver H10?http://www.zolved.com/synapse/view_content/5942/What_is_the_UMS_trick_on_IRiver_H10

This article tells you how to transfer music to your player The UMS trick is a great thing to know how to do. With it, you can transfer music, or treat your H10 as a harddrive to put anything you want on.
The UMS trick will also allow you to use your H10 with virtually any OS.
For 5/6 GB MTP Models
  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Take out the battery, wait a second, and put the battery back in.
  • Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way).
  • Plug the H10 into your computer.
  • Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button.
  • You will see the message "UMS Mode" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
For 20 GB MTP Models
  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Poke the "reset" button with a paperclip.
  • Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way).
  • Plug the H10 into your computer.
  • Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button.
  • You will see the message "Emergency Connection" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
For UMS Models UMS models do not need this trick because they are
always in UMS mode!

---download and run the free playlist maker called easyh10. It will read the music files on your h10, rebuild a playlist and save it to your player.

I need to restore the system files for my H10 Iriver MP3 player


go to www.iriver.com people - what the f--- do you think it means?

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.
