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

Error while connecting player to pc by data cable


You can try the official iriver site to try to find the software
if after u install the driver software it still doesnt work im pretty sure that the USB interface is broken which means unless u know how to fix it and are willing to open the x20 ur iriver x20 is essentially dead

External memory - sd card recognition on pc??


if it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver

Iriver X20 database full


does the message stop you from using the iriver?
if it doesn't then there's a format function on the iriver in the settings menu...
if it does then there may be a problem with the usb connection...
either the iriver isnt responding or the computer can't read it!
for the user below there is most likely a format will fix it...

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.

Blocked Iriver X20


Yes, try running a format from your computer to the IRiver with it plugged into the USB port. I have done this with several friends MP3 players and it works great. In other words plug your MP3 player into your computer as you usually do and from windows or dos in your accessories run a regular format of the MTP portable device or whichever drive dos says it is. Then presto you can again load music or whatever your MP3 player take into it again.

Iriver X20- playlists and videos


yeah, basically all i did was change my settings to MTP.
then i went into internal hardrive (just in normal usb mode)
i selected the songs i wanted and right-clicked (make sure to do this one one of the songs you selected) in the options that come up it should say "create playlist" (in bold) i clicked that, it wouldn't let me rename the playlist... but it worked fine... and now they come up in the right place, i didn't even use Iriver plus 3.

Car stero won't recognise device


Only solution is to switch to a different type of car adapter, like a casette adapter. iRiver is too small for car manufacturers/adapter manufacturers to bother with.

Formatting the iriver x20


I think you need to have a Windows XP w/SP1 or later and USB 2.0 port to connect to. Any older operating system/Pc will not do. Once you make the connection, simply Right-Click on the new drive letter (PC would have created for the player) and click <Format> followed by <start> .
