Question about iRiver PMC-120 Digital Media Player

2 Answers

Not recognized by my Win XP SP2 computer

My laptop recognized the device 4 days ago and I was able to remove all but a few of the MP3s stored on it, as well as half of the movies. Problem is, I removed these files using Windows Explorer (the device acting as a hard drive) then tried to sync with WMP11. No luck - no files were transferred. Attempted to transfer for 2 hours, gave up and the next day asked a tech friend for help. He gave up after not finding drivers - wouldn't even try it on his 2nd or third computers, each with a different config! (Sorry, ticked about that) Now when I connect it to my laptop I get "found new hardware mtp device" but it doesn't find the iriver. I've taken out the battery, hit the reset button a couple times, no luck. Also tried a different USB cable with a connection that fit the player. Tried running it as the only USB device installed. None of the above worked.

You probably erased some of the players system configuration files in the process of your file removal. You might want to reformat the device by going to my computer and right clicking of reforamt this device. Once completed you might want to unistall the device as well and make a complete fresh install of it by either installing the driver again using the players website download or the cd that came with you player. To unistall the device do the following: 1)Go to start 2)Right click on my computer and select properties. 3)Once there go to the device manager tab. 4)make sure it is connected 5)Find your device and right click and click uninstall. 6)After just restart your system and install the driver again for your player or insert the Cd another alternative would be instead of uninstalling is to check for a device update.

If your driver are ok then is your computer is in same WORKGROUP like other are(If you are in LAN connection and sharing internet with other).
was there any IP address in your computer before you formatted it? make it confirm and if IP was there then give back the IP to tour connection.

Here's the link for the user manual if you need it; http://www.iriveramerica.com/download/pmc/PMC-100.pdf check page 137 of the pdf and try the restore to original settings. do you have the setup cd? - it has troubleshooting for the unit, which is not available on the website there are no drivers available, it uses windows media player as a driver, but the manual and the support site; http://www.iriveramerica.com/support/multi/pmc100_faq.aspx both claim that you need windows media player 10, not 11 to synchronise. you can download it from this link; http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx or install it from the setup cd just uninstall wmp11 first. many of this type of unit and mp3 players etc have problems with wmp 11, hopefully reverting to 10 will allow you to sync Hope this helps :)

Front buttons don't work on CF-19 (MK2) After upgrade from xp sp2 to xp sp3!


From the description, the laptop will only support SP2 the only suggestion I can offer is format the hard drive and reload your original disc to get the front controls back.

Then and only then, plug your mp3 player into the computer.

Unable to install XP sp2 on Intel D865GBF Motherboard


Maybe having trouble with a device, remove any pci or agp cards and usb devices, use built-in video until installed.

Set bios to defaults, make sure bios is latest version.

I have found this happens with a promise ultra-100tx2 and any nvidia video card.

May be a bad install cd, if you can boot it with a dos or win98 disk/CD, copy xp i386 folder to hard drive install from i386 folder on hdd by running winnt.exe

I have installed xpsp2 on about 10 d865gbf's and 2 days ago installed xp sp3 on one with no problems. may also be bad mobo.
