Question about iRiver E100 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Iriver e100 will not recognize artist/album

Initially, when i put all of my music onto my iriver, everything was fine. Then, it began freezing when i opened a certain file, so i reformatted it. Now, after I've put all my music back onto the player, it will list all of my songs under "all music", but if I try look up songs by artist or album, it shows that both categories are empty. On my computer, all of my songs have artist and album listed in their details. How do I fix this??

    I have relatively the same problem. Every thing is in english except the album title and out of 634 albums that all show in asian characters I only show 18 artists at least these are in a language I read. Any help is appriciated.

    i was told that if you are getting your music off of limewire or a music sharing program that it would be the song file that is corrupt or not labled right. there fore not recognizing the song file under the artists. i have the same problem with mine. it will all be ok when i put all the songs on initually. but when i add a few songs or change it so that it is catagorized by artist instead of title. it will change from me having 665 artists to 168 artists. but all the songs will still be on the mp3 player.

    All I did was try to load a song under the artist name instead of unknown artist and now it will not recognise that song at all. I tried deleting and reloading no good. I tried redownloading the song off the net and transfering no good. I tried resetting the player no good.I tried downloading iriver 3 and using that no good.
    I upgraded the firmware and starting again still no good.
    I have had about enough of this and will go back to my cheap arse player instead if I cannot find a solution and this peice of sh1t can go in the bin.

When I press

it's because the iriver doesn't reconize the artist. the artist name, album etc is set in the file's info. you can write that info yourself so the iriver can reconize it. for example I opened Winamp, imported the songs I wanted in my iriver, right clicked on the the first songin my list, selected FILE INFO and went on and completed the artist field myself. did the same to every other song....and now the iriver reconizez the takes some time indeed...and I don't know of any other easyer method that works.....but this one surely will. good luck :)

Album art

u can use the other mode to put the album art on it too....
just drag and drop the album art using wmp 11...
if that doesn't work the slow way is to use iriver plus 3 and add it manually.
i suggest organising your files by placing albums into individual folders with their album art...
u can also use other programs like itunes or winamp to add album art...

Music won't show under "Music" in main menu

Dear iriver users,

When I frist drag and dropped pictures onto iriver, nothing showed up. With more playing around, I discovered, frustratingly!..that I can download pictures onto WMP and sync it with my iriver that way. That is the only solution I have found, even though it seems possible with the drag n'drop!

good luck!

Iriver H10 20GB - i can't access my music through Artists or Albums

Have you tired doing a "Database Refresh". It's located on the main screen under "Settings". Go to Database Refresh and check "Yes". How much music you have on your player will determine how long the refresh will take. If that doesn't work possibly run the Firmware Updater from iRivers' web site and only update the database, do not do a complete "Recovery" or all of your music will be erased as that choice reformats your hard drive. Only choose "Update Firmware"
