Cannot Load Songs onto iRiver H320 Player

I have upgraded the firmware. I reformatted the drive. When I try to copy the songs back onto the player while connected via USB and the player shows up as a hard drive in Explorer (songs which had been on the player, but I copied onto my hard drive to back up) I keep getting the "cyclic redundancy check" error. I cannot find a way around this. Sync-ing with Windows Media Player 10 has only helped to a small degree. I got some material on the player, but then it froze up and I get an I/O error message. I am wondering if the H320 hard drive has a problem.

My iriver says that it has no memory left

YOu may want to back up everything you have on your H320 to your PC, then reformat the unit throught the main menu on the player. That should clear out anything that is eating up your memory. Once you have done that, then re-copy all your stuff back onto your player.

"Can't Found DRM Key"

The DRM key is specific to the songs that you have downloaded, not the mp3 player itself. Most music services give you files in what is called WMA format. WMA files have DRM-encryption on them usually (unless they were burned from a CD or removed). To get the DRM key back, you have to either renew your music service subscription, or upgrade your music service subscription (in some limited cases, the music services only let you listen to the songs for 30 days, and then they require you to pay for that individual song to continue using it).

Convert the songs to Mp3 format, and you will never get that message agin.

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.

Obviously, if it's still under warranty, you know what to do! I'm not familiar with this particular model but, unless you and I are missing something to do with the controls, then it sounds like a software 'crash'. These players are basically empty chips which need to be filled with a program to make them work - just like a computer. You should have had a Firmware Disc supplied with your player. If you don't, then go onto the manufacturer's website and down-load it from there. Follow the instructions for 'Firmware re-load' carefully. This will wipe the existing (faulty?) program and your music files, and basically reload a fresh copy of the Firmware onto your player to get you back to the position you were in when you first got it! Good luck, and please report back about the result.

Will not syncronise with iriver plus, media player does not recognise devise

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

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 updater ([MTP] iriver Firmware Updater for MTP devices).

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".
