Make sure the hold button on the bottom is showing white, not red (locked) if that doesn't work, just pop the battery off and put it back in.

My laptop does the "found new hardware, mtp device" popup, but doesn't recognize it as iRiver

Here's the link for the user manual if you need it; check page 137 of the pdf and try the restore to original settings. do you have the setup cd? - it has troubleshooting for the unit, which is not available on the website there are no drivers available, it uses windows media player as a driver, but the manual and the support site; both claim that you need windows media player 10, not 11 to synchronise. you can download it from this link; or install it from the setup cd just uninstall wmp11 first. many of this type of unit and mp3 players etc have problems with wmp 11, hopefully reverting to 10 will allow you to sync Hope this helps :)

IRIVER E100 stuck. Display "USB

Take out the batteries and hold power button for ten seconds. Replace batteries and see if anythings changed. If not, then plug it into a computers USB port and then hold the power button for ten seconds. Safely Remove from the USB port and then check again. If none of these work, you just have a malfunctioned device and it may cost more to fix it.

Good Luck,

I have a iriver spinn mp3 and i dont know how to to put music on it can you help me

Sure, connect to your computer via proprietary USB cable that comes with the device. Your computer should automatically recognize the new Spinn device. Software is also included in order to manage music, video, & ebooks (text files). Install Iriver Plus 3. Perform media search on your computer. Select files you want to put on your Spinn. Then transfer to your device. Make sure eject your device for safe removal. Thats it.
