Question about iRiver H320 MP3 Player

Trouble copying songs

I have been having a consistent problem getting songs onto my player. I continually get a "cyclic redundancy error" message when trying to drag files to folders on the player using Windows Explorer. Also, trying another method, Sync-ing with Windows Media Player, it will start out okay then freeze up. I reformatted and upgraded the firmware. Nothing has helped.

Re: Trouble copying songs

Try making one file of the BEST MIX and then sending only that one file. After they are on the player you can shuffel them around as you like if you have enough folders available. The file on the player will show on your desktop and you can then rearrange them before disconnecting. It seems from the error message, you are sending more than the songs to the player; like an exe order with each. Not everything in each file needs to go to the player. It only needs the tunes, it has it's own idea on how to play them, which is different than what the media player wants to do with them. Mine was fussy about what was being offered by my Windows Media Player 11.

Keep getting Data Error: Cyclic Redunancy Check - cannot get any music onto it anymore. There are currently no songs on it, I deleted them all to put new ones on then got the error.

You may have to format the MP3 Player. Hate to say that. This is due to write problems (not your fault, it is just the way of things computerized) that came from deleting the files. It does not happen often, it just happens.

HOWEVER, try this first..

1. Remove the battery
2. Press and hold "Play"
3. Plug it into the USB port
4. Release "Play"
5. Try to put the songs on there.

If 1-5 do not work, then download the firmware and reinstall it from RCA (search TH1602-A (or whatever model number you have)).

OK.. the "hitting it hard" part was probably a bad idea.

If it's out of warranty, crack it open and check the ribbon cable inside. There's a chance you just need to re-seat the cable.

Cyclic Redundancy Error

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
If these fail, then:
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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Error copying file or folder

You can always reformat it. If you plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. Your fixer, Wild2DMaxx
