Hard drive is probably bad -- common problem. cheapest solution is to buy as-is h10 from ebay with a working hard drive (perhaps it has a touchpad problem), open the unit up and replace the drive.

See this forum for info on how to open the player with a torx tool and a plastic pry unit. forum

Plan b - sell unit on ebay in as-is condition and use money toward a top notch 20gb refurb unit for about $30-50 from sellers like metromania

iRiver H10 - Missing System Files
You must be connected to the internet for this to work: 1.Download the MTP Firm Updater Utility from iriver website - iriverinc.com/support (Audio Jukebox --> H10) 2. Unzip file, run .exe file, go thorugh wizard (if you are not in mass storage mode, it will give you instructions on the wizard on how to change this) 3. Select Recovery 4. Finish going through wizard 5. disconnect iRiver from computer, and wait for it to update - your player should be good.
If the problem happens again, then uninstall Windows Media Player 11 from your computer and rollback to Windows Media Player 10 (you will NOT lose any songs by doing so).
Good luck!

System initializing


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.

Iriver H10 system initializing problem


This is for the H10 20GB:
  1. Download the latest firmware from the iriver website
  2. Drain the battery
  3. Connect the player to your computer. Your player should be off and not connected to power yet.
  4. Connect to power.
  5. Press the O button(right button below screen) and hold it down.Press the power button at the same time. This will power the player on in emergency connection mode.
(Please note: this is the only way to power on the player in this mode without getting stuck in the 'system initializing.please wait' screen).

6. Format the player as you would any drive on your computer - right click on the player icon in My Computer and click on Format.
7. Unzip the firmware you downloaded from the iriver website.Follow the instructions (including steps 1 - 5 detailed above) to install the fimware.

You may get an error message and a prompt asking where you bought the player. Chose whatever area/region you want - doesn't make much of a difference to be honest...

Once you've loaded the firmware, you're ready to rock and roll !!!! I had the same problem and now my player is like new :-)

Wont go to main screen


I had one of these for a while, before I finally got fed up with the crappy firmware and switched to Rockbox, an open-source firmware that is infinitely better than the default.

But if you do want the original firmware, go here: http://iriveramerica.com/support/mtpupdate/ for a step-by step guide to reinstalling the firmware. Be warned that I do believe your music will be deleted from the player, though.
