Question about iRiver X20 MP3 Player

3 Answers

IRiver X20 mp4 player will not turn on.

It just stopped working all of the sudden. I tried charging it through the computer but all it says is "USB not recognized", which is weird because it always recognizes it. I don't know if it is the battery thats stuffed up or the LCD screen. Help

    Mine is brand new out of the box and XP wont recognize it. So much for 'plug and play'. This one is going straight back to the shops and i'll exchange it for another brand. What a joke.

    usb cable not recognised by computer...windows xp. was working before. tried uninstalling the iriver disc and reinstalling it but no luck. Please advise.

  • dganung Sep 01, 2008

    I used it for awhile and then all the sudden the x20 floppy was corrupted and then a few weeks later the disk itself FAILED and required a complete format. Worse yet, the screen telling me what to do won't give it up so I can do it. I'm locked in space.

Try removing the battery and then plugging it in to the computer w/o the battery. it worked for mine, and when i plugged the battery back in while it was connected, the computer wouldn't recognize it.

Good Luck

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Iriver X20


can you connect it to your computer?
if so then format it then run iriver plus 3
plug it into the computer
then go to tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization

if you cannot connect your x20 to your computer
there is a tutorial on the iriver support page saying you can format it by,
holding down menu butting and turning it on
but that didnt work for me..
otherwise, its stuffed..
if its stuffed, dont throw it away, ill buy it off you..
contact me if your interested, deano_90@hotmail.com

IRiver X20 USB port is broken


hmmm....
well u can buy yourself a micro sd card and use that...
as long as all the menu files ect are still on ur working x20 u can just slot in a micro sd with ur new music!
If you no longer want to listen to some some songs u can just format the internal memory in the settings > advanced menu.
it's a little bit annoying like swapping the batteries but it means that it's function is salvagable.
so to answer ur question it isn't technically dead so long as u have a way to charge ur x20 and update ur music photo's ect...
im not too sure what u mean by lists though...
if ur wanting to know whether the port is salvagable im guessing probably not.
if its just a wiring solder problem and ur compotent in solder work then u can try if ur willing to risk it.
but i probably wouldn't

Error while connecting player to pc by data cable


You can try the official iriver site to try to find the software
if after u install the driver software it still doesnt work im pretty sure that the USB interface is broken which means unless u know how to fix it and are willing to open the x20 ur iriver x20 is essentially dead

Iriver X20 database full


does the message stop you from using the iriver?
if it doesn't then there's a format function on the iriver in the settings menu...
if it does then there may be a problem with the usb connection...
either the iriver isnt responding or the computer can't read it!
for the user below there is most likely a format will fix it...

Blocked Iriver X20


Yes, try running a format from your computer to the IRiver with it plugged into the USB port. I have done this with several friends MP3 players and it works great. In other words plug your MP3 player into your computer as you usually do and from windows or dos in your accessories run a regular format of the MTP portable device or whichever drive dos says it is. Then presto you can again load music or whatever your MP3 player take into it again.
