Question about iRiver H320 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Formatting After having some problems printing from the unit using a computer in a small copy center, I couldn't get my own laptop to recognize the iriver unit, I have had no trouble with that before. I was able to reset the unit, but it says the disk is full now and I can't get to any files. My laptop does recognize the unit through the media port, but I can't do any thing with it (get to old files, import new ones or record anything) I've tried to reformat from my computer and from within the unit, but it won't let me do that either. Any help would be appreciated!

Re: formatting

If it was a bad sector problem, I would think formatting it would isolate the bad sectors and reduce the usable size to then consist of the remaining good sectors.
I wonder if you have an intermittent connection. You could try opening it up and making sure the drive was seated into the connector properly. See the initial steps of Denny's battery change guide to see how to do it.

When i play it show no data

Possible that the format is not recognized as the format required for the player or the files are corrupt and the player does not recognize them.
Connect player to a PC and check the properties, if not copy them format and reload with the correct type- after conversion.

Generic problem for Media Players

make sure that the songs that you uploading with your mp3 player is mp3 format, not wma or other, maybe your are loading a format that your player cant recognize.

The itunes doesn't recognize my ipod classic

you restored your ipod correct? (just the music is erased) not format ? (ipod is zapped)....ok..lets play with the restore part...plug up ipod to not open itunes (close it, x it out) ...go to my computer you should see a new drive on it (ipod)....double click ipod and copy the software (from ipod) it should be 4 folders and hidden files too...paste it to a temp folder on the right click ipod drive and format it (yes this will erase everything on it)...once format is completed reinstall the software from the temp folder back to this is finish....update itunes to the newest version (even if u have it already overwrite it) now have a brand new ipod...........

in the beginning i ask if you restored or formatted (if you had formatted, you would not find nor see any software) would be better off asking a friend/family if they have the same ipod can you copy just the software (you would copy their software to a temp file, then on to yours same as above) .........i hope this works out for u.....feel free to rate the help

I have a sylvania mp3 player i wanna put music on it how do i do that have no instructions for it model number is smpk8854b if that helps

Usually when the player is connected to a PC, it will automatically recognize the unit as a generic external storage device (you should get a "hardware connected" message). If your computer does not automatically open a window that will allow you to have access to the units' internal memory, you can access it through "My Computer" (it should be recognized as a drive - e.g. E:, F:, etc.). After that, putting music on the mp3 player is a matter of copy and pasting the files from the computer's hard drive to the players' memory. Just make sure the music is in the mp3 or wma format before copying it.

Doesn't reocognize songs and Ipod

Try booting it into disk mode. Do this by clicking on the menu and center buttons at the same time. When you see the apple logo, immediatley hold the centerbutton and play button down at the same time for 10 seconds. The ipod should now say disk mode at the bottom and have a check mark on the screen.

Then connect it to your computer, and format it using your computer. To do that click on my computer, then right click on the drive letter assigned to your ipod (should be like drive I: or H: or similar.. Then scroll down to format and click on format. This should reformat the ipod completely.
Once that is done disconnect your ipod from the computer and reset it again using the center and menu buttons. After it reboots, try reconnecting it to you r computer and see if it is fixed.
