Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Files missing I turned my iRivier on the other day, and it seemed that all files are missing from it! (Artist - blank, Album - blank..etc) After connecting it to my computer, it seems that the albums are there (at least I can see the names of the albums) but I cant open them, or delete them...) Any solutions to that? Many thanks!

Re: Files missing

Same thing happened to me, i deleted everything from the hard drive and re-syncronized it using WMP. It worked untill i tried to update the sync. Now the display is all messed up and it only accepts a certian number of songs. Good Luck

When i connect my m-cody M30 mp3 player to my PC by USB, to which folder should i put my mp3 files to make it work? can it be in folders?

Yes it can be in folders. It may have a video, picture, music folders etc. if so for your music, create sub folders in the music folder for each album or artist/band and place the music files in these folders so you can easily select and play the music by artist/band/album etc.

I have a Coby MP620-8G mp3 player. For some reason, I've been getting a whole bunch (at least 15 albums) of my artists thrown into the Unknown Artist category, making it difficult to find songs. In my...

I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!

I have 2GB clip and every time I download some

Hi there !!!

When you say every time you download some files and if it says UNKNOWN. Then i would say the ID3 TAGS could be an issue.
This issue occurs when information in a track's ID3 tag is missing or incorrect.
ID3 tags
allows information such as the title, artist, album, track number, or other information about the file to be stored in the file itself.

In order to fix this up. Kindly follow any of these steps..

Step 1:

1. Open Windows Media Player.
2. Under Library, look for the file to be edited.
3. Right-click the file, then select Advanced Tag Editor.
4. Enter the proper data for the fields available (i.e., Title of the track, Artist Name, Album Name, Genre, Track number, etc.)
5. Click Apply then OK.

Step 2:

Using Windows Explorer
1. Look for the location of the file.
2. Right-click on the file, then select Properties.
3. Click the Summary tab.
4. Click the Advanced >> button.
5. Look for the information you want to edit under Property.
6. Click the space under Value to edit the information.
7. Click Apply then OK.

My player (sansa clip 2gb)won't read tags (artist, album ...)

You check your songs from your computer first; Right click on one of songs, select Properties, select Summary tab (check Artist, Album Title, and Title). If they are there, you should update new firmware (search SANDISK FORUM from google). If they are empty, it's right for device display the filename.

Unable to Edit Files.

Open Windows Media Player 11
Right click on one of the songs that is showing up as unknown artist.
Select "Advanced Tag Editor"
Manually enter the artist information, etc.

To save time, you could also right click the song and select "Find Album" info - it won't find every album, but it will find most of them.

The real bear is that once you have edited the information in Windows Media Player, you have to delete the affected song off of your mp3 player and THEN reload the newly-edited song - or else your changes won't register on the mp3 player itself.

"unknown" album or artist

If you're using MSC mode (moving files via explorer), I believe the player ignores the directory structure for the most part, and uses the MP3 tags. I've had very good success using Media Monkey (which is freeware) to group the songs, and then transferring from there, in MTP mode.

Playing all of my music

I had this problem. You transfer the files over but they don't show up. I think its beacuse the files need id3 tags for the player to be able to find them. (id3 tags tell the plaer the album, artist, track name etc. programs like music match add them for you i think)
