Question about iRiver PMC-120 Digital Media Player
This is reeeeeeely annoying. i just got an iriver PMC. i plugged it into my VISTA computer for the first time and chose the sync set-up and all that, synced songs and a few vids. but then when i went to put it back in the next day, i plugged it in and wmp11 and my computer froze. the iriver showed up in device manager and in my computer and wmp11 but after i tried to do anything with them in my computer or wmp11 it just froze and takes ages to do anything. i think the problem may be that information is being transferred between the pmc and computer by the usb cord very, very slowly because it still manages to show up in wmp11 and my computer. it shows up in wmp11 and i can go into songs but it takes ages and ages (i.e half an hour....) to show up.
Also, when i first plug it in the circley thing that spins around when it says updating spins for a few seconds then stops when it shows up on the computer... i took the battery out and the screw there thinking it was a problem inside but i couldnt manage to get it open... does anyone know how to get the thing open?
ive read that i should format for problems sort of like this... sort of like this being the key phrase in that sentence.
any help at all woujld be dearly appreciated!! thanks
I encountered the same problem that u were having after about 7 months of use of my iriver pmc. When i connected my iriver to the usb cord it showed up on my computer, therefore my computer detected it but when i wanted to open my MEDIA file it took awile and my iriver froze while trying to update. The only solution that i came up with was this: 1. You have to go to control panel. 2. Go to system icon. 3: After you click the system icon the system properties page should show up. 4: Next click on Hardware and then device manager. 5: Then u have to click on the Windows portable devices which should be on the bottom, then double-click on "iriver portable media center". 6: Now you will have to click on driver and UPDATE the driver. Unfortunately this will format your iriver but it will fix the problem. Just copy and paste all your songs back on your iriver.
HOPE THIS HELPS
