Iriver H10 - DB Open Error

I have had my iriver for about 4 years now and have never had any problems with it until now. I can use the radio and everything else seems to be fine, but when i click on music to try and access anything i have downloaded onto my iriver, i get the following message 'DB Open Error. Connect iriver plus And DB Update'. I have no idea what this means. I have tried connecting it to my iriver software and completing a sync but its not working. Any ideas??

What is the UMS trick on IRiver H10?http://www.zolved.com/synapse/view_content/5942/What_is_the_UMS_trick_on_IRiver_H10

This article tells you how to transfer music to your player The UMS trick is a great thing to know how to do. With it, you can transfer music, or treat your H10 as a harddrive to put anything you want on.
The UMS trick will also allow you to use your H10 with virtually any OS.
For 5/6 GB MTP Models

  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Take out the battery, wait a second, and put the battery back in.
  • Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way).
  • Plug the H10 into your computer.
  • Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button.
  • You will see the message "UMS Mode" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
For 20 GB MTP Models
  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Poke the "reset" button with a paperclip.
  • Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way).
  • Plug the H10 into your computer.
  • Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button.
  • You will see the message "Emergency Connection" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
For UMS Models UMS models do not need this trick because they are
always in UMS mode!

---download and run the free playlist maker called easyh10. It will read the music files on your h10, rebuild a playlist and save it to your player.

I am having the same problem. Resetting it doesn't work and now it's locked all the time and I can't do anything with it! There are no suggestions on the iriver website. Have you got any other solutions to this problem?
