Re: dropped iaudio X5 and it wont turn on

I found out a problem with it, i had the same problem if u have rockbox on their, u got to get rid of it, when it turns on plug the USB to the mp3 player, make sure it comes in the Drive of your computer, use a Windows XP, or any updated windows computer make sure that it's formatted into a FAT32 drive and format make sure u put the original firmware back into it, it can be downloaded from any Cowon Site, here is the steps if u want to know how to start it off Windows XP formatting instructions:
1. Connect your iAudio player to your PC's USB port and wait for it to detect.
2. Go to My Computer, click on Start then click on My Computer
3. Select the iAudio drive, then click on file and select format.
4. Click OK to format
Needs to be a FULL format and in FAT32.
after that is done, it will reset all the folders, and wipe off the hard drive and it should be back to normal, from then on it should work, if it doesn't try to use this site to request for a RMA repair service if u want to, u could try the Rockbox again if it is on it, but just know it's not fully supported by Iaudio...and ill give the Firmware link too if u want it [X5 Firmware] if it don't turn on possibily u can try to reconnect the power wire into the solder joints that should help with that issue, the power wire is red...that should help turn it on

My ipod has a record control, and I can't record anymore. It appears to be stuck

Dear, there is button for record, it is not functioning properly because it is not doing the right job, if you will try to fix it, there are great chances of future damage, because of the mini-circuit in this technology. I suggest you to visit repair shop for assistance, it would be better than fixing it yourself.

Best regards.

How long dose it take

it don't take long, it depends on the file size you are putting into it, otherwise it might take a while based on that, or the amount of file you have in it, if it takes a while scrolling and you get a hour glass on your computer screen wait until it all loads up and it should work perfectly for you

Gets stuck at the loading screen, also a lack of battery life.

i had the same problem, try to reset it or, if you got rockbox built in try to turn it on and off, i don't know if you might have 2 sides to your mp3 player but try that out, and definitely buy a new battery, they sell it most likely at any electronic store...the wires should be plugged in inside and if not try to connect them inside: connect them as this red, black, and red if you do that it should solve your problem

IAudio X5 not recognised as removable drive

If there's no difference in the operating systems, or other software, a possibility is a faulty USB socket on the computer. Try another USB, or swap workstations... ;] hope it works out
