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.

System files missing


oooh thats a tough one. lets see, if it will still connect to the computer, the iriver tools that are used to update firmware should work. try to put it into restore mode by holding the right front button immediately after reset (use a pin or toothpick to hit the button on top) and plug it into your pc. hopefully those files are still intact. doing a refresh of the firmware should work. if not i believe there are repair tools for the h10 on irivers support page. http://www.iriverinc.com/lounge/loungeView.asp?selectPart=02&findWord=&sno=685&page=1&cateCode=02 this is a link to the page that has recovery tools and firmware update tools. Hope this helps!

It says files missing need h10 recovery tool


Hello,

When the H10 comes up with the information "files missing", system files are missing on the player for proper functionality.
The recovery tool must be run to restore the player's functions.

When not having the tool available on disk it can be downloaded from
the iRiver site, starting here:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/index.asp?code=0302
In the second column next to GO, enter the word recovery in the bar.

Click on the upgrader, to see how to perform the recovery for the MTP version of this type of player.
MTP version indicates that the firmware on the player is suited for transferring media using Windows Media Player 10 or 11.

The version depends also on the region, the player has been sold. More info for checking the MTP or MSC version, see:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/popup/flash_pop.asp?board=faq&code=365

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

I need to restore the system files for my H10 Iriver MP3 player


go to www.iriver.com people - what the f--- do you think it means?

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
