SOURCE: need a driver for the pmc 120 for XP.....

You need to use windows media converter (under the windows media folder) and convert all videos to WMV format and you have to use 320X240 output resolution, 800kbps sound quality. Anything else will result in a format out of specification error. Now where to move those video files is a mystery as there is no video folder. You can move all pictures into the pic library, etc. Windows Media Player 10 is designed to natively pick this device up and make synchronizing easy. when I plugged my Ebay PMC-120 in, Windows media player tried to sync all media files to my device, pictures, music, windows sound effects, etc. Should not be an big deal if you have the correct USB cable, mine came with one. Iriver.com has the software, but you have to go into the update software area of the site and there is a link to the master program in a set of upgrade instructions, no other place that I looked. Not Vista compatible unless you download the installation program and set its compatability to winXP BEFORE you run it. And stick with WMP 10 as it was around when this device was made.

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; http://www.iriveramerica.com/download/pmc/PMC-100.pdf 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; http://www.iriveramerica.com/support/multi/pmc100_faq.aspx both claim that you need windows media player 10, not 11 to synchronise. you can download it from this link; http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx 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 :)

My iriver pmc won't switch off


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.
