IRiver X20 USB port is broken

I just realised the part I connect the USB cable to is broken and I can see the yellow wires. Is my IRiver practically dead now?

    Well... I have an old one where the LCD screen is stuffed (and I know that's unfixable). However, I can swap the batteries and recharge them in the old one, so technically my IRiver(s) still works.

    I just can't update the lists but that just means I'd need another replacement if I wanted to do that.

Hmmm....
well u can buy yourself a micro sd card and use that...
as long as all the menu files ect are still on ur working x20 u can just slot in a micro sd with ur new music!
If you no longer want to listen to some some songs u can just format the internal memory in the settings > advanced menu.
it's a little bit annoying like swapping the batteries but it means that it's function is salvagable.
so to answer ur question it isn't technically dead so long as u have a way to charge ur x20 and update ur music photo's ect...
im not too sure what u mean by lists though...
if ur wanting to know whether the port is salvagable im guessing probably not.
if its just a wiring solder problem and ur compotent in solder work then u can try if ur willing to risk it.
but i probably wouldn't

Ineed a usb cable for a t10 iriver mp3 player


Computer shops sell USB cables. Take your Iriver player with you to the computer shop because the USB cables come with different size connectors and you need one that fits your player.

On my iriver spinn the toch screen has broken, meaning i can not uplaod data to it. i was wondering if there is a way to over ride this for me to be able to upload data to it?


There is a way to do this: after you connect the usb cable to the iriver spinn and the two options appear, click the wheel to select file transfer or back to just let it charge.

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.

Iriver x20 - freezes and wont show as a connected device to pc


When you connect the PMP to the computer does it say your new device is ready for use or something else like 'the device has malfunctioned'?

I have the same issue that frequently the computer won't see the PMP. Keep trying it sometimes works. If not then its likely that the harddisk is dead or dying.

Iriver Clix USB freeze


My screen also froze in the music menu, but when I connected to the PC, it was recognised and I could get into the files. Try resetting it by sticking a paper clip in the reset hole if you've not done it already. Mine's working fine so far....

Iriver T20 USB went DEAD


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off 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.
