How to do voice recording

Turn on your iRiver device.
hold the center button in until you see the screen is at the FM, Recording, Browse or Settings. These are accessable by left and right directions.
Once you are at the Recording option, quick tap the center button. And then press the record button on the top of the device. The Stop/Play, A-B buttons are also on top next to the record button.
You may need to be sure the headphones are disconnected.
hope this info is useful.

Shuffle mode

Cut and modified from Douglas E. Levy at Amazon forum:
When you're in the Now Playing screen press and hold the Play/Pause button (right edge of screen). At the top of the slide-in menu you'll see Play Mode. Click Pause button again and scroll to "Normal" and choose it.

Iriver s10 problem

there is a 'reset hole' next to the power on switch - you need a pin to push into the reset hole

I do not use the software that comes with the S10 - it always wants to go on to the internet and re download itself. If I want to copy music over I use windows explorer and copy MP3s into the music folder

Here is what I do when I need to reset - format S10 machine from windows
1. plug the S10 into the computer via the USB key
2. You should see the S10 in Windows Explorer as a portable flash disk
3 Right Click and select format - Warning! all data will be lost if you have not backed up!
4 In the File System drop down list select FAT (the default is FAT32)
5 Click start to format the device.
6 Once the S10 has been formatted unplug it from the computer
7 Turn the S10 on and scroll down to SETTINGS
8 Right click and scroll down to Advanced
9 Right click and scroll down to Format Device
10 Right click and then click OK to confirm
On the same menu as Format Device is Reset All Settings - I recommend you do this as well.
11 Plug the S10 back into the computer
12 When you look at the S10 in Windows Explorer you will see it has created some extra folders
13 drag and drop MP3 music files into the Music folder and away you go!
14 you can create additional folders in the Music folder if you want to organize your music

E10 iriver freezes and is excessively slow

It may not work, but.
Find the reset hole in the side of the E10 and perform a reset (you shove the end of a paper clip in the hole)
I have fixed my wife's and my daughter's by this method a couple of times!

Player wont switch on

I have the same problem in that nothing happens when I press down the play button on the base unit. However, when I press play on the remote the unit turns on. Not sure if this solution applies to your problem...
