Iriver IHP 120 taking 15 minutes to boot

your hard drive is just fine (i have a ihp100 with a 30 gb). it all depends on the amout of track and type files on the ihp -120. but getting back to speeding up your boot time (try ROCKBOX) you can still have your 120 with a less than 30 second boot up time, customize equalizer, while playing screens and more. and you are right the new players do match up to ours.

You can get a replecement on Ebay or at Maplins the spec is

In: 100-240V~50-60Hz 360mA
Out: 5V~2A

be careful I once fried an IHP-120 by using the wrong charger. I replaced the battery but taht wasn't the issue. I had it replaced with a IHP-140 and now my old charger has gone too. I got a replacement through the company I bought it from but they have none left.

Wheres my music gone?


Just had the same problem myself with an ihp120 I just bought off ebay. Here are the steps I took:

1.  Prolific swearing
2.  Prolonged sulk
3.  Internet research
(I assume you have already been through these 3 to get to this stage)

4. I connected it to my PC via the USB lead - I could see all the files on the ihp120 and I backed them up to my hard drive.
5. In windows I right clicked the hard drive, to do a check for errors in the hard drive and to fix them -

It got about 80% of the way through, then the battery ran out - best to check that first.  When I turned it on again, 90% of the files were back and visible on the mp3 player.

So basically, back up the files, charge it fully, do a disc error check in windows.

Good luck

You can download the software from Iriver goto support then to download and select your player. I would recommend re-formatting your player with a program such as swissknife in case you've accidentally partition it somehow. It probably wouldn't hurt to run windows scan disc after formatting(right click your player in my computer and select properties then tools then error checking and check th automatically fix errors box.

Player wont switch on

I have the same problem in that nothing happens when I press down the play button on the base unit. However, when I press play on the remote the unit turns on. Not sure if this solution applies to your problem...
