Question about iRiver Clix Digital Media Player

1 Answer


Our iriver clix 4gb 2nd gen has a media transfer software called Iriver plus 3. When we plug the USB cable from the player to the pc, this window shows "no portable device connected" and the transfer button will not work. The player (mp3) led screen does show "usb connected" What gives?

(windows xp pro 2000 on my pc)

My understanding, as a new user, is that IRiver plus 3 only communicates with the player via UMS mode, which is not the default. Windows Explorer and Windows Media Player only communicate through MTP mode. If you change from MTP (the default) to UMS, it will reformat the player and delete all your files.

In other words, do not use iriver plus 3 unless that is the only software that you want to use. Boing back to MTP mode after a sync or download will then delete all THOSE files you just downloaded.

I just say NO to Plus 3.

Good luck.

Hi there,
Based on iRiver E10 User's Guide, you can use iRiver Plus Software to transfer music and picture files to E10.
If you dont have the software iRiver Plus, you can download and get the installation guide here:

I have a iriver spinn mp3 and i dont know how to to put music on it can you help me

Sure, connect to your computer via proprietary USB cable that comes with the device. Your computer should automatically recognize the new Spinn device. Software is also included in order to manage music, video, & ebooks (text files). Install Iriver Plus 3. Perform media search on your computer. Select files you want to put on your Spinn. Then transfer to your device. Make sure eject your device for safe removal. Thats it.

Iriver "USB Connected" screen problem

Before suicide, first consider your daughter ;)
Then make sure the USB ports and cables do not have a lot of dust in them.
Unplug and try it in a different port[also those in the back of your computer]
Make sure you have the driver installed.

Hope that helped, if not, reply with more details.
