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.

My Creative Zen 4GB player not getting ON or recognized in my PC

try this
1. Look for the icon named "Computer" or "My Computer" and right click on it and select properties, this will open a window named "System Properties".
2. In the system properties windows click on the tab named "Hardware", and Select "Device Manager".
3. On this window you will see all the devices installed on your computer, look for the device not working properly (printer, dvd rom, keyboard, camera, mp3 player, etc), if there is a bigger problem, more likely you will see a cross by it, or an alert stating there is an issue with it.
4. Right click on the device you where having problems with and select uninstall, it will give you a confirmation, press OK
5. Once the device disappeared from the list, click on the menu bar icon that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass this will cause for the system to scan for any devices not registered and will force the re installation of the device.

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.

Iriver PMC120 when connected to Vista computer by USB takes ages to do anything

To: Muzza213
From: Muzaffar

    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.

the iriver series by default is not detected as a usb drive. iriver music manager is needed to transfer files. After a firmware upgrade, the device is usable as a usb hard drive. But you need the music manager software to upgrade

You could also do the "emergency connection" trick. First, plug the USB into your computer, hold down the "o" button and push the reset button with something that has a point. The computer will recognize your h10 as a hard drive. The you can sync music to your player or just drag-n-drop it. you'll probably need to use a program like "Easy H10" to update your player's database. It's easy to use and it only takes a couple of minutes to update.
