Remove the usb drivers from the pc and then reboot and let windows reinstall the drivers, you can also try the usb ports on the back of the pc since they have more power.

When i plug in my Transonic MP4 player a pop up box comes up which says that "USB device not recognised". It then tells me that one of the USB devices has malfunctioned and windows does not...


MP3 players use the popular USB connection which sometimes produces errors while connecting. These messages are similar to the "Device Not Recognized" error received with various USB devices. Fixing an MP3 player is sometimes specific to the brand, but they are so similar that most can be fixed the same troubleshooting steps.



Instructions

Device Manager

Click "Start" and go to "Control Panel." Double-click "System" and locate the Hardware tab to find the Device Manager. Vista and Windows 7 users can just type "Device Manager' from the start menu.

Locate "Disk Drives" from the list and double-click "Portable Device." If there is an exclamation mark or other error on the device, go to the "Drivers" tab.

Click "Uninstall" and remove the player. Restart the computer and attach the player reinstall the drivers.

Anti-virus conflicts

Plug the player into a different computer to see if it gets recognized. If it does not, contact the manufacturer to find out if it is broken.

Turn off your anti-virus program on your PC if the device works on other computers. Reinstall the drivers using the device manager as described in section 1.

Plug in the player to confirm the connection.

Other solutions

Check the battery level and make sure the batter is not low or depleted. A low battery will sometimes prevent the player from connecting. Let it charge from the power cord, if necessary.

Verify that you have at least Service Pack 1 installed. Go to the Start menu and type "Run." Press Enter.

Type "Winver" in the box and press "Enter." The Windows version will be displayed along with any installed service packs. Download a service pack from Microsoft, if applicable.

Remove the player from the USB port and push a pin into the reset hole located on the bottom. Reconnect to see if the problem is resolved.

Check the connection to make sure it's secure. The cable should fit firmly into both the player and the computer. Connect to a different USB port if you have one available.

Download updated firmware or use the MP3 Recovery Tool provided under Resources (for Zen players).

Tips & Warnings

A bad cable will sometimes prevent a good connection. Use a different one to isolate the cause.

SYSTEM FILES MISSING


I had same problem. On this website I read that problem is due to hard drive malfunction. I have solved my problem by doing the following. Actually a friend of mine told me he solved similar problem with his iPod this way.
1- Per indication on this website (fixya) I put device next to my ear at the time I turn ON and screaky sound was present. In my case I could hear that sound.

2- on a solid table I put a piece of cloth
3- removed batery from H10 and installed back ON (I think this is called reset)
4-put iriver h10 on my hand with screen towards my palm
5-turn device ON and immediately slap it against table (with piece of cloth in between) at third attempt device boot normally.

I figure, device was dead why not try this. In my case it worked.

Now I am trying to synch my music. sometimes it sync sometimes it reports error but music is there.

I think you bricked it. When it says Do Not Disconnect, it means it!! If you disconnected it while it said that, you bricked it! The motherboard can be replaced, however, and it should work again. Don't think its worth doing that though.
