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.

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.

Cyclic redundancy error when copying backed up files into Itunes

Files with cyclic redundancy errors means these files are corrupted and cannot be copied. Since you cannot copy these files from your faulty hard disk again then these songs are lost and you need to download them again.

Do you have the original installation disk that came with the computer? You can try to boot from that CD and do a repair installation. The Cyclic Redundance Check (CRC) error refers to the media the computer is trying to access (either the CD or the hard drive). Try booting into Safe Mode (reboot and press F8 repeatedly until you get a boot menu). From Safe Mode run a checkdisk (chkdsk from command line) on the hard drive to find and repair any found disk issues.

Re-installing xp

A cyclic redundancy check (CRC error) is an error checking program that is used to verify data and can be caused by hardware or software. The most common causes are bad CD disk, hard drive or memory. To run diagnostics press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. Examine the Windows CD and see if there are any scratches or smudges on the media, try another CD disk if you have one.

My hard drive crashed

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.
