Movie problems I have tried transfering several videos across to my X20, but non have been supported, so I went into iRiver Plus 3 and the only difference between their movies and mine were that theres was VBR and mine is CBR. Does anyone know how to fix this? The iRiver Movie Converter doesn't convert proply for me for some unknown reason. Please help.

Song names in X20

i think you should try this...
if you dont already, download iriver plus 3
install it
open iriver plus 3
plug in iviver
go to tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization

this should format your iriver and replace all the original files

i reccomend only putting music, video, pictures and ebooks on via iriver plus 3

and also please make sure you safely remove the iriver each time you connect it to the computer
if you dont, there is a chance that you will screw your iriver, you may have heard of the "building library" problem, which nobody has found a solution for yet.

i hope this helps you!!
good luck!

IRiver X20 movie problem

yea the iriver x20 isn't very reliable when it comes to video files. there could be like 10 things wrong with the codec and even if u fix all of them it doesn't help. your best bet is to convert to wmv using the iriver program or another program like winavi converter. its really fustrating i know but its just how the iriver works.

Iriver X20 won't read on Iriver plus 3

this is a major problem i found with iriver plus 3. it tends to stall quite regularly. i suggest using wmp11 its just as effective. it cannot convert files but it syncs up quite nicely

Hope that helps!

I need to find another CD Rom(?)

I'm not certain what do you mean by "instructions", but I presume you meant "drivers"...

On the link below you'll find:
  • iRiver Plus 3, software and driver [older and newer version; try the newer first
  • Movie Converter
  • iRiver LDB Manager [lyrics related]

Here's a link:

Hope it helps.

Downloading movie length DVD to iriver x20

Yes, you need to convert all your movies to a format iRiver and understand and play.

Here's a link:
Movie Converter for iRiver and instructions

I'm not sure whether Movie Converter supports original DVD files. If that is not the case, then you'll have to convert DVD video into a format that iRiver X20 can use, and then feed that new video to Movie Converter.

However, that would be a bit redundant: to save on time and quality, you could use other video Conversion tools, such as SUPER:

After loading your DVD, you set the parameters to mirror those accepted by your iRiver model. In case of iRiver X20, those parameters are:

Extension: AVI [[also known as container]]
Video Codec: WMV9 SP, MPEG-4 SP [[MPEG-4 = XVID, DIVX]]
Video Resolution: max 320 × 240
Video Framerate: max 30 fps
Video Bit Rate: max 512 kbps

After successful conversion, upload your new video file to your iRiver X20 and play it back. If it plays [and plays correctly] - then congratulations - it works! If it does not play, then you might have made a mistake while setting the output parameters in SUPER.

Hope it helps. Rate me. Thanks.

Iriver X20- playlists and videos

yeah, basically all i did was change my settings to MTP.
then i went into internal hardrive (just in normal usb mode)
i selected the songs i wanted and right-clicked (make sure to do this one one of the songs you selected) in the options that come up it should say "create playlist" (in bold) i clicked that, it wouldn't let me rename the playlist... but it worked fine... and now they come up in the right place, i didn't even use Iriver plus 3.
