Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Disappearing icon When I connect to my computer, the iriver icon appears as normal in system tray. iriver manager does not recognize the unit however it is recognized by both win xp explorer and wmp11. After downloading music the icon disappears from the system tray and no matter what I do I cannot find it in order to safely remove from the computer. the only way to remove is to take the USB cable out of the unit which still leaves USB connected on the screen. I then have to remove the battery in order to restart the unit. This is definitely buggingme.

IM box will not appear

The system tray (in short: systray, nowadays also called taskbar notification area) is the icon strip normally located near the right end of the task bar, next to the clock.
Some Windows XP installations show a peculiar defect in that some systray icons disappear or, rather, do not appear, when the system is booted and the user logs on. The problem is even more prevalent on systems with autologon. The most frequently affected icons seem to be the speaker icon (sound volume) and the power/energy icon.
This has nothing to do with the hide inactive icons settings. The defect shows up when you don't have any icons set for hiding.
In any case, please make sure for now that you haven't activated that setting. Right-click the task bar, click on Properties, uncheck the last check box. You can reactivate it later if all other problems are identified or solved.
Check your Startup folder and the starter registry entries through Start, Run..., type: msconfig, press Enter, to check whether the programs are really started at system start, or use Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) to see whether the processes are running.

Western digital 500gb external hard drive ticking noise- Help !!!


I completely agree with the WD CSR that the read/write part of the hard drive has failed and the best thing to do is recover the data before the failed hard drive corrupts the data as well. This is a mechanical fault and cannot be repaired. For the best drive savers of US please visit the website for local numbers and price of recovery. Also the details of data in the drive provided needs to be provided to the drive savers.

Thank You

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.

Computor doesn't recognize iriver iFP-895 mp3 player

What's your operating system?

These are the steps that helped me resolve a similar issue I had:

1) Find a computer with Windows XP (ServicePack2)
2) Intall iRiver Music Manager 3.16 from
3) Download the Firmware update for your player from to your Desktop
4) Start the Music Manager and connect your player to the computer. (The XP should recognize your player; and the Music Manager should show the "connected" status)
5) In the Music Manager, click on Tools => Upgrade Firmware, then select the file from your Desktop. NOTE: The upgrade process takes 4 -5 minutes.

After the firmware update, Windows Vista and other PC's should recognize your player.
