Considered formatting disk?
For you what this would mean is just a complete refresh of the device (you will lose everything).

You will need to read everything carefully.

I converted my H10 to the "UMS" mode mentioned in the site a long time back (so I could directly transfer files as a USB mass storage device) and had the issue mentioned in that post. Works great. Converting to UMS mode is done here http://www.misticriver.net/wiki/index.php/H10_Firmware_Conversion:_MTP/UMS

You will also need the iRiver Plus software that you can download for free here http://www.iriver.com.au/iriver/index.cfm?pageID=10001&

System files missing




I fixed this problem for my mate, here's what I did:

1) plugged in H10 to pc that didn't have any iriver software on it
a) I've read if you press the "o" button on the iRiver H10 when connecting it will just connect as a usb mass storage device
2) the H10 now appears as a mass storage device
3) right click on the drive, and select format ( I choose quick format)
4) install the iRiverFirmware updater from http://iriveramerica.com/support/mtpupdate/
5) when you run the updater, it found the H10, then asked if the device was from USA or Europe, mine was from Europe
6) It stated that the iRiver firmware was v0.0, and would install v2.51 (I've seen v2.53 available on the european iriver website but could not download it).
7) proceed with installing the updated firmware
8) on the last screen it says, unplug to complete firmware update - NOTE press Finish first before unplugging
9) switching on the iRiver it 'rebooted' a few times and then when the menu appeared, I connected to the pc and just dropped some mp3 files into the music directory and all was okay.

hope this helps.

iRiver H10 - Missing System Files
You must be connected to the internet for this to work: 1.Download the MTP Firm Updater Utility from iriver website - iriverinc.com/support (Audio Jukebox --> H10) 2. Unzip file, run .exe file, go thorugh wizard (if you are not in mass storage mode, it will give you instructions on the wizard on how to change this) 3. Select Recovery 4. Finish going through wizard 5. disconnect iRiver from computer, and wait for it to update - your player should be good.
If the problem happens again, then uninstall Windows Media Player 11 from your computer and rollback to Windows Media Player 10 (you will NOT lose any songs by doing so).
Good luck!

Iriver H10 V's Vista


Just to let everyone know I have the H10 6Gb player and the reason your having problems getting the H10 to work with Vista is because it isn't supported by Vista at all even with updating your firmware...

Delete music H10 iriver


Sorry, but the built-in firmware only allows you to do that by plugging it into your computer as a removable device. Pull the battery of the player (or press the reset button), plug it into your computer, and press and hold the OK button as you turn it on. This will cause the computer to recognize it as an external drive, and you can therefore delete music from it by accessing it through My Computer.
