Question about iRiver iFP-790 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not seen by pc

Hey!
I bought an iRiver in '06 and downloaded the software on my pc. Everything worked fine at first, but as soon as i tried to download the software onto my new pc, the problem began.

The software downloads with autoplay, but the pc doesn't pick the player up from my usb port.

Help?!

You would have to use irivers manager software, or change the firmware so Windows can see it.

I was trying to turn off my iriver, but now it is frozen in the shutdown screen. Prior to that I had it connected to the computer, with the iriver software running. It tried to read the iriver, got stuck...


connect Iriver back to PC...go to my computer open Iriver and copy the software only (hidden files too) you do have your files on the pc and or the cd's.....because you are about to format the Iriver (this will erase everything) open a temp folder to hold software on PC.......copy/paste software to .......now go back to my computer right click to format the Iriver . once format is complete copy/paste the software back from PC to Iriver...now copy/paste all your mp3 files from PC/cds to Iriver.......its like new all over again

Iriver H10 - DB Open Error


one idea...
connect player to your pc using the ums trick
What is the UMS trick on IRiver H10?http://www.zolved.com/synapse/view_content/5942/What_is_the_UMS_trick_on_IRiver_H10

This article tells you how to transfer music to your player The UMS trick is a great thing to know how to do. With it, you can transfer music, or treat your H10 as a harddrive to put anything you want on.
The UMS trick will also allow you to use your H10 with virtually any OS.
For 5/6 GB MTP Models
  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Take out the battery, wait a second, and put the battery back in.
  • 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 "UMS Mode" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
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.
For UMS Models UMS models do not need this trick because they are
always in UMS mode!

---download and run the free playlist maker called easyh10. It will read the music files on your h10, rebuild a playlist and save it to your player.

Cant find free download of iriver plus 2


Hi,
Here's the iRiver Plus 3 software:
http://www.iriver.com.au/iriver/uploads/software/iplus3_setup_full.zip

It's compatible with XP and below. I haven't come across a Vista driver for it yet, but you might be able to right click on it and hit Properties and select XP compatibility in Vista, I don't know if it'll work though.

Hope this helps

My iriver e100 keeps freezing. I tried making a playlist and as soon as I select a song to listen to out of the playlist, the screen freezes and no music plays...


Hey guys,

I had a similiar problem. Apparently when you download music from limewire etc. and upload the music to your iriver, you can upload viruses also. Limewire is very dodgy for this. I'd say delete those songs that are freezing from your player and computer, they may be infected and causing the freeze.

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.

Mike.

Iriver plus software closes down when I plug in my iriver E10 to the computer


Using Explorer try copying one song over into the music folder of the device. Then restart Plus so that it searches and finds a song present.

Iriver T10 will not allow me to add songs


The updater that I could find directly via iRiver support did not work, but based on one of the other tips, I googled for the Version 2.7.0.0 updater ([MTP] iriver Firmware Updater for MTP devices).
http://www.iriver.com/flash/popup/flash_pop.asp?board=down&code=736

I recommend that you try the "normal" updater from the website (maybe yours is not an MTP version), and if that can't recognize your player, try the updater from the link above.

Note: The updater seemed to hang at 50% for over 5 minutes... I gave up and unplugged it. Then it asked me if I wanted to upgrade the firmware. "OK," I said. It took a few minutes. The screen went blank. I put in a fresh battery. Turned it on. It works. I was able to use Media player 11 to synch some songs to it.

BTW: It did blow away all the songs on the device, even though I chose "update" instead of "recover".
