Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Vista will not recognize iRiver H10 MP3 player

I have a 5 GB iRiver H10 MP3 Player. It's older technology and it was really only made to run with XP. I once had the drivers for it, a friend found online for me. But I have had to do a system restore since then, and unfortunately I don't have the drivers anymore. Most of the time, my laptop won't even recognize that I have the device plugged in via USB. Sometimes if I turn on the device it will recognize it an attmept to find the drivers. I have wondered if maybe the sync cable I have for the iRiver is faulty. But it works fine once the computer recognizes it. So basically I need drivers for the iRiver, and to make it compatibly with Vista. I have heard that you can run things in XP Compabtibility mode. But I am not sure what I need in that mode. Windows Media Player? The iRiver Music Manager?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can tackle this problem.

Try plugging in usb with the H10 turned off. Now, press the select button (with the round symbol on it) while turning the H10 on. This starts the player in 'emergency mode' and should be recognized by XP

Restore the system files, connect H10 to recovery tool


The procedure depends on what version you have.

Below there is the procedure for 20 GB , on other models procedure is the same, but you must find the right download for your model.

For 20 GB :

TO RESTORE "SYSTEM FILES MISSING" LOCKED PLAYER

--- This applies ONLY to the 20 gig version of the H10! ---

--- This procedure formats your H10 so all data will be erased on the player! ---

1. Power off H10 - 20gig unit.

2. Insert staple or other small object into reset hole to press reset button.

3. Connect player to USB cable.

3. Hold down Select key (labeled "O" - right button on front of player) while also holding down power key until player boots.

4. Unit must display "Emergency Connection."

5. Unit will now appear as a drive under My Computer. Right click on drive, select Format. No need to change anything, just proceed.

6. Download H10_20GB_System.exe. It is a self-extracting archive. Double click on it and unzip to c:\iriver.

7. Locate iriver directory, double click. You will see H10. Double click once again; you will see System.

8. Right click on system, select "Send to" and choose the directory of the player.

from System Files Missing

Iriver h10 20gb not recognized in UMS


I sometimes have to reset my iRiver in order for my Mac to see it. I have an h10 5gb, to do this, I have to remove the battery then reconnect the battery. Then I connect it the usual way to get into the UMS mode. But I think with yours it has it's own reset button. If it was working and now has stopped, I would think you just need to reset it and try again.

iRiver H10 - Missing System Files
You must be connected to the internet for this to work: 1.Download the MTP Firm Updater Utility from iriver website - iriverinc.com/support (Audio Jukebox --> H10) 2. Unzip file, run .exe file, go thorugh wizard (if you are not in mass storage mode, it will give you instructions on the wizard on how to change this) 3. Select Recovery 4. Finish going through wizard 5. disconnect iRiver from computer, and wait for it to update - your player should be good.
If the problem happens again, then uninstall Windows Media Player 11 from your computer and rollback to Windows Media Player 10 (you will NOT lose any songs by doing so).
Good luck!

H10


I took advice in previous posts and went to http://www.iriver.com/support/down_list.asp
I selected the kind of iRiver I had - then selected software and drivers and selected the 2nd choice (Using iriver plus 3 with Window XP SP2) I downloaded and installed and it seemed to work with Vista. iRver does claim to work with Vista but so far Windows Media Player seems to accept it.

Iriver H10 V's Vista


Just to let everyone know I have the H10 6Gb player and the reason your having problems getting the H10 to work with Vista is because it isn't supported by Vista at all even with updating your firmware...
