Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Deleted files still on machine

I have managed to delete some songs from my player. Unfortunately, the folders (artist name, album names and songs) have not been deleted so they still show on the MP3 player(although if I try to play them, the titles are displayed but cannot play as the files themselves have gone). When I view the contents of the MP3 player on Windows Media Player (Vista version) the offending folders are not displayed so I can't delete them. Any help appreciated but please keep the explanations in simple language as I'm not an expert with computers.

    Thanks fo your suggestion.

    I have tried to do what you suggested but have not been able to.

    I have gone to computer and then right clicked on iriver.

    The options that come up are

    Explore
    Open
    Import pictures
    Create Shortcut
    Rename
    Properties

    I have scrolled through them all and cannot see a format option.

    There is a format option when I open the iiver icon in Windows Media Player, but this is in faint text and the computer does not do anything if I click on it.

    I am working on Vista, so I don't know whether that makes a difference.

    Hi,

    I don't have an icon which says "browse" specifically. I have tried "explore" which I assume (perhaps wrongly) is the same.

    The folders that have music in them come up. However, the problematic files do not appear on the computer - they only appear on the MP3 player itself.

  • Jeremy Dixon Aug 07, 2007

    I can't see the window you mentioned through doing this. The iriver comes up as "other devices" but I can't do anything with it. It is possible that tese solutins might work with XP, but Vista seems to be quite different. Thanks for trying. I will repost the problem as you suggested.

I'm assuming you're using a 5 or 6GB H10 so you need to update the firmware for Vista "compatibility", you can download the updater from www.iriveramerica.com/support/hd/h10_5-6gb.aspx. However the advice about formatting the device is correct, the devices file system has not been updated by media player to reflect changes so the player thinks the files are still there, you may be better off using iRiver music manager which you can download from www.iriveramerica.com/download/iRiver_Manager_v316sp.exe you will want to install/run it in Windows XP w/SP 2 "compatibility" mode. Compatibility is in inverted commas because Vista is a compatibility issue, just generally, Microsoft really do produce poor quality products at premium prices and the sooner more people gain day to day experience of using something, anything else, preferably Mac OS X, the sooner more people will realise just why geeks are so down on Microsoft. With any new version of Windows don't switch until at-least Service Pack 1 has been released and even then check the forums first.

Jeremy, I think the actions below will remove the offending data/folders 1. Connect the player to your pc 2. double click on "My computer" 3. Right Click on the player's icon 4. Choose Format That should be it. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. D.

    I see.
    Try this: Click Browse and then try to format (using the right click) each of the folders.

    Let me know how it goes.

    My bad, I meant explore :-)
    One last thing I can think of. try doing the following:
    1. click on my computer and see which drive your mp3 is on (D:,E:,F: etc)

    Now click on Start - > Run (on the bottom right end of the opened pane and type "Format Q:" (Where Q is the Drive your MP3 is on, as mentioned earlier).

    I really hope this will work. If not I suggest asking for another opinion (it's over my league I''m afraid)

    All the best,
    D.

I have a gigaware 8gb mp3 player. i went into my computer, clicked on audioplayer and deleted almost all the folder tabs for music to get rid of all the music on my mp3. Now when i try to put songs on...


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Delete songs


Your SanDisk Sansa Player does not allow you to delete files from within the player (But the recorded files can be deleted at the player). Instead I recommend that you follow these steps :

When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m240. Follow these steps:

1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer.

2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.

3. To use the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client software to delete files to your player please refer to the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client help file.

NOTE: While you can store and organize your audio files on your player using folders with names you select, your player will ignore folders and names. Instead, your Sansa player will extract information from each audio file so that you can use the software menu to navigate your files by artist, album title, song title, and other useful criteria.

hope it helps.
Have a nice day!

The problem is the files.
What I'm doing right now is going through the files, cutting and pasting the individual mp3 files (Not the folders) to a temp file, deleting the artist and album folders from the player, and cutting and pasting them back into the player.
This is very labour intensive.
The player will look at how many folders (artist) sub-folders (album) then songs. When it hits 500 it stops looking. I had about 100 artists with several albums for most. It would only list 2 songs. I've deleted several artists (and sub-directories) and copied the songs onto the player (no folders) now I'm up to about 20 songs.
The "easiest" way to load the player is to copy/paste individual mp3's onto the player.
I'm looking for a firmware upgrade but I don't think I'll find one. The players seem to be made by Curtis International ( www.curtisinst.com )

Cant arrange songs according to my way


I used ID3-TagIT to change the album name of my songs to the name of the folder on my Sansa c250 that I want to put the songs in. Open your Sansa in My Computer, double click on Internal Memory and open the music folder. Add a new folder and name it whatever you put in for the album name of your songs. Highlight all your songs and drag and drop them into your folder. Don't use media player to sync or they end up all mixed up in different folders.

When i connect to the computer, i can add songs, but the songs on it dont show up


I don't know if you've inadvertently deleted the music folder, but that's what I did, when I deleted all the folders by mistake, thank heavens for in-store warrenty, they replaced it with another one. What I noticed on my replacement is synchronizing with media player doesn't work, it creates ghost folders and thinks music is there when it isn't, I don't understand it. Solution: open two windows for my music and sansa e280 music, then just drag and drop the folders; what I noticed is that in my music the folders are named by artist, and I prefer to see them by album, but when I view them in the player, I see the albums with the tracks in the right order.
