Formatting the iriver x20

Hi, I have had the iriver X20 8GB stop opening due to bad files which have been loaded to it. It was suggested to me to Format the device, but after reading the manual its not clear how to do it at all. Other than it needs to connected to the PC. But as it doesn't open due to bad files the PC doesn't recognise it.

 

 Any tips on how to format the device?

 

Secret reset buttons?

I think you need to have a Windows XP w/SP1 or later and USB 2.0 port to connect to. Any older operating system/Pc will not do. Once you make the connection, simply Right-Click on the new drive letter (PC would have created for the player) and click <Format> followed by <start> .

Lost software


bradders,

question: from your iriver mp3 have you already format it or the files are still inside?

if your reffering old files as files you've accidentally delete from your player. the only way to retrieve the said files is by using a software "filescav" or filescavenger. this software can only retreive files from any removable device if the said device haven't been formated.

but if you only want to get the present files installed in your iriver, i do think that once you connect your iriver to a PC. the PC will search for a newly installed drive which is your player. and once detected you can open the folder of the newly found device and simply copy and paste all the documents and files you want to copy from your mp3 to PC.

note: you can download filescavenger from web free. just type in google bar " filescavenger" and it will show all the possible download site for the said software

cheers,
mark

I've had 2 crashed iriver X20


Hi. I just had solved my Build Library problem. Use my solution on your own risk.
The solution is the following:
1. open up a player (find 8 screws, not 6, 2 of them are on the left side of the player under the round stickers)
2. jently take off a circut board. (you need to access its bottom)
3. Find a memory chip. It is labeled like "samsung k9hbg08u1m"
4. find chip's key meaning start of pin numbering (small circle on the corner). There are 48pins. 24 on the left side (1-24) and 20 on the right (48-25) see chip's manual http://catalog.gaw.ru/index.php?page=document&id=11348 page 4
a56d1a4.jpg

5. On the right side find pins 32-29 (find them as the second 4 pins from the chip's circle key opposite corner)
6. Connect them together with some metalic wire (don't touch two middle pins on the right side of chip, it is chip's power supply).
7. Holding those pins together connect USB cable to player's socket.
8. After a while player will show error on its screen, get metallic wire out of pins, and then the player will be available as flash storage on the PC.
9. Format flash storage with quick format.
10. Disconnect and assemble the player back.
11. Connect to PC and upload new music.
12. Feedback to fzymarev()yandex.ru

IRiver keeps loading and loading and ...


Just a thought, try removing the battery, then holding the rest button in for about 15-30 seconds, release it, then re-attach the battery, if that don't work, try removing the battery, then re-attach the battery while holding in the reset button, then release the button after about 15 seconds. Konqueror?, That's a Linux based file manager/internet browser, is it on your PC or the iRiver? If it's on the iRiver, then the operating system is more likely Linux based, and removing the battery then re-attaching the battery while holding down the reset button, should!!! (not everything works as it should) reset the machine.

Iriver T10 will not allow me to add songs


The updater that I could find directly via iRiver support did not work, but based on one of the other tips, I googled for the Version 2.7.0.0 updater ([MTP] iriver Firmware Updater for MTP devices).
http://www.iriver.com/flash/popup/flash_pop.asp?board=down&code=736

I recommend that you try the "normal" updater from the website (maybe yours is not an MTP version), and if that can't recognize your player, try the updater from the link above.

Note: The updater seemed to hang at 50% for over 5 minutes... I gave up and unplugged it. Then it asked me if I wanted to upgrade the firmware. "OK," I said. It took a few minutes. The screen went blank. I put in a fresh battery. Turned it on. It works. I was able to use Media player 11 to synch some songs to it.

BTW: It did blow away all the songs on the device, even though I chose "update" instead of "recover".
