My iRiver does not connect to my PC but shows the unit is charging

Press Play to make it connected.

You can also turn USB Charging off via a long press of the NAVI button to get to the menu then it's under control

Shuffle mode

Cut and modified from Douglas E. Levy at Amazon forum:
When you're in the Now Playing screen press and hold the Play/Pause button (right edge of screen). At the top of the slide-in menu you'll see Play Mode. Click Pause button again and scroll to "Normal" and choose it.

MODE/REC Button stopped working on iRiver IFP-790 digital audio player

I had the same problem. I got some electronic contact cleaner at Frys Electronics and sprayed a bit around the button, so that a little got inside. The button started working again instantly. If yu don't have contact cleaner you could first try a drop of denatured alcohol... I don't think it's as likely to work, but I also don't think it will hurt anything.

**error** can't open this file???

Be sure you are using the latest version of Iriver Plus 3, to load your music. It automatically makes all the necessary conversions to put files on the player.

Downloading movie length DVD to iriver x20

Yes, you need to convert all your movies to a format iRiver and understand and play.

Here's a link:
Movie Converter for iRiver and instructions

I'm not sure whether Movie Converter supports original DVD files. If that is not the case, then you'll have to convert DVD video into a format that iRiver X20 can use, and then feed that new video to Movie Converter.

However, that would be a bit redundant: to save on time and quality, you could use other video Conversion tools, such as SUPER:

After loading your DVD, you set the parameters to mirror those accepted by your iRiver model. In case of iRiver X20, those parameters are:

Extension: AVI [[also known as container]]
Video Codec: WMV9 SP, MPEG-4 SP [[MPEG-4 = XVID, DIVX]]
Video Resolution: max 320 × 240
Video Framerate: max 30 fps
Video Bit Rate: max 512 kbps

After successful conversion, upload your new video file to your iRiver X20 and play it back. If it plays [and plays correctly] - then congratulations - it works! If it does not play, then you might have made a mistake while setting the output parameters in SUPER.

Hope it helps. Rate me. Thanks.

Iriver h340

Have you tried a program such as drive rescue (I got a portable version (for PC)from
Likewise roadkill's unstoppable copier(google it, sorry no link) I don't know of Mac equivalents.

From memory the hard drive is a 1.8" Toshiba drive. If this is the case, you can get a USB enclosure to plug it into. (I got one on eBay for a similar situation with a faulty X-drive) You will need to pull the h340 apart before you buy it because there are a couple of pin configurations for 1.8 in drives. If you have to resort to cracking it open there was a video on youtube (I think) showing you how.

MisticRiver For iriver Enthusiasts would have more detail, I am going from memory and has been a long time.

Wheres my music gone?


Just had the same problem myself with an ihp120 I just bought off ebay. Here are the steps I took:

1.  Prolific swearing
2.  Prolonged sulk
3.  Internet research
(I assume you have already been through these 3 to get to this stage)

4. I connected it to my PC via the USB lead - I could see all the files on the ihp120 and I backed them up to my hard drive.
5. In windows I right clicked the hard drive, to do a check for errors in the hard drive and to fix them -

It got about 80% of the way through, then the battery ran out - best to check that first.  When I turned it on again, 90% of the files were back and visible on the mp3 player.

So basically, back up the files, charge it fully, do a disc error check in windows.

Good luck

My iriver pmc won't switch off

make sure the hold button on the bottom is showing white, not red (locked) if that doesn't work, just pop the battery off and put it back in.
