Re: Getting music off Iriver

When you change your firmware from the "manager" version to e.g. the Firmware v1.85 UMS version, you will no longer need to use the iriver manager software to move mp3's around, you can just drop them on or from your iriver. The disadvantages are that:
1. by upgrading to the UMS version, you will wipe ALL your current music, so it will NOT help you right now, only after you have upgraded to the UMS version and placed mp3's on there again. The iriver will behave like an external thumb-drive, so you can use it on any PC without the iriver manager.
2. The UMS firmware will ONLY run in USB 1.0 speeds, so it will take up to 36 minutes to fill the iriver up with 1 GB of music (or in my case podcasts).

I want to learn how to download music to my iriver spinn

You can use Itunes sofware or windows media player software.
But itunes is more user friendly.
Just import everything to the library of itunes .
Then connect your mp3 player then click on it then select synchronise.

When I press

it's because the iriver doesn't reconize the artist. the artist name, album etc is set in the file's info. you can write that info yourself so the iriver can reconize it. for example I opened Winamp, imported the songs I wanted in my iriver, right clicked on the the first songin my list, selected FILE INFO and went on and completed the artist field myself. did the same to every other song....and now the iriver reconizez the takes some time indeed...and I don't know of any other easyer method that works.....but this one surely will. good luck :)

Files in Iriver H10 not appearing in music.

try this...

connect your h10 to the pc using the ums trick with the usb connection..
For 20 GB MTP Models
  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Poke the "reset" button with a paperclip.
  • Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way).
  • Plug the H10 into your computer.
  • Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button.
  • You will see the message "Emergency Connection" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
download and run EASYh10 software (free playlist maker). It will scan the files in your music folder and build/save a playlist to your h10.
disconnect player and give it a try...

Lost software


question: from your iriver mp3 have you already format it or the files are still inside?

if your reffering old files as files you've accidentally delete from your player. the only way to retrieve the said files is by using a software "filescav" or filescavenger. this software can only retreive files from any removable device if the said device haven't been formated.

but if you only want to get the present files installed in your iriver, i do think that once you connect your iriver to a PC. the PC will search for a newly installed drive which is your player. and once detected you can open the folder of the newly found device and simply copy and paste all the documents and files you want to copy from your mp3 to PC.

note: you can download filescavenger from web free. just type in google bar " filescavenger" and it will show all the possible download site for the said software
