Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

Windows media player vs. h10 20gb

I have had my IRiver H10 for about a couple years now and I never had any major problems with downloading music before from Windows Media Player. I had recently changed music in my playlists and was about to download the new lists, but they will not download. What happens is that it will download a song or two and abort the rest. I have tried restarting my H10 and then retrying to download the music, but it has not seemed to work. Would anyone know if this is a problem with the Media player or is it my H10? Thank you for any solutions.

Hi maria lopez0...
Downloading Music to MP3 Player

1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer.
NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.
If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10.
2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer.
3...Open Media Player on your computer.
4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player.
5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on.
6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it.
7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player.

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!

a Couple of months ago I had sort of the same problem although my H10's got 6G...anyhow what solved my problem was downloading the current firmware, then I installed WMP 11 (10would also work) and restarted the device...then connected it and finally updated the firmware just by folowing the steps of the same programe...that's it hehe hope it works also for U guys. Oh and try to backup all your music or start downloading it all again as you'll loose it from the player.

Iriver H10 V's Vista

Just to let everyone know I have the H10 6Gb player and the reason your having problems getting the H10 to work with Vista is because it isn't supported by Vista at all even with updating your firmware...
