You may need to hold down the play/pause button while hooking the cable up, and continue to hold it until the screen lights up. It can take up to 60 seconds for that to happen.

The Iriver locks up in "system initalizing please wait"


This is for the H10 20GB:
  1. Download the latest firmware from the iriver website
  2. Drain the battery
  3. Connect the player to your computer. Your player should be off and not connected to power yet.
  4. Connect to power.
  5. Press the O button(right button below screen) and hold it down.Press the power button at the same time. This will power the player on in emergency connection mode.
(Please note: this is the only way to power on the player in this mode without getting stuck in the 'system initializing.please wait' screen).

6. Format the player as you would any drive on your computer - right click on the player icon in My Computer and click on Format.
7. Unzip the firmware you downloaded from the iriver website.Follow the instructions (including steps 1 - 5 detailed above) to install the fimware.

You may get an error message and a prompt asking where you bought the player. Chose whatever area/region you want - doesn't make much of a difference to be honest.

Cant find the firmware version that was on it it


When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1.
This program installed firmware v1.2.5.0

remove the battery,
start the program,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem after I did it a second time and allowed it to format.

RCA Opal 8 gb mp3 player stuck in initializing mode


I had this problem. I had to really try several different things to get the software to recognize the mp3 player. RCA does have download software that will format your MP3 player and put the firmware on the player. It would be better to get the firmware on without formatting if you have files already on it. Just be sure that you get the screen that shows it is connected to USB.

Music won't upload onto my Rio.


I have not been on FixYa for about a 1/2 a year so as I seem to be the only person answering Rio problems I have only just seen your problem... Sorry, so if you haven't bought an iPod yet (or you want to try and fix this anyway) then I would recommend wiping and rebooting your player:

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio player and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=112).
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps
