I have an error message in my iRiver and unable to use it anymore. The error message I'm getting is: Boot Failure System file has an error. To solve the problem, connect the device to compute

If it is an older model like H10, it used a a micro hard drive which may have failed mechanically. Those old hard drive devices were susceptible to shock failure due to drops. In some cases you may be able to replace the failed hard drive with a compact flash card - I believe they used the same connectors and pin outs. If it is not a hard drive model, can you get it recognized by windows drive manager to try to reformat it. There's a linux based program G-Part Ed. It's an ISO file, burn to cd or put on USB and boot pc to the cd or usb to launch linux and the software then see if it will recognize and format it as an external drive. Gibson research used to make spin rite that was able to fix some hard drive problems, might work on flash memory too.

IRiver Music Manger not recognizing iRiver player when connected

First make sure you have the right drivers installed, you're hearing the "new device connected" sound when you plug it in, it's listed as recognized under device manager, and the only problem seems to be that iriver music manager isn't recognizing it.

If everything is working except for the music manager, then try holding down the "fast-forward" button at the same time that you connect the cable to the iriver. You probably want to keep iriver music manager loaded, to see if it's recognizing the player while you test this; try attaching/detaching the device several times, while you're holding down fast-forward and while you aren't, to see if that's enough to fix your problem.

I have no idea why it works when it does, it's an ugly kludge, but it seemed to fix the problem for me, and saved me from having to buy an entirely new flash mp3 player to replace this ancient one.

iRiver H10 - Missing System Files
You must be connected to the internet for this to work: 1.Download the MTP Firm Updater Utility from iriver website - (Audio Jukebox --> H10) 2. Unzip file, run .exe file, go thorugh wizard (if you are not in mass storage mode, it will give you instructions on the wizard on how to change this) 3. Select Recovery 4. Finish going through wizard 5. disconnect iRiver from computer, and wait for it to update - your player should be good.
If the problem happens again, then uninstall Windows Media Player 11 from your computer and rollback to Windows Media Player 10 (you will NOT lose any songs by doing so).
Good luck!

Iriver T20 not recognized

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off 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.

All the info/manuals/drivers/upgrades for the iRiver T20 can be found here:
