Question about iRiver PMP-120 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I need to recover the data from my PMP-120 (hard drive is removed)

What sort of "reader" do I need to "see" the hard drive I've removed from my broken PMP-120? It is quite slim, and does not have the interface that a 2.5" IDE laptop drive would.

Any help is appreciated!

That's because it's a Toshiba 1.8" zif drive.

Adaptors/ enclosures are available on the web.

If the drive is still working once you've taken your data off then sell it. Used 20Gb 1.8" drives are going for about £30+

Problems with my iHP-120 iRiver mp3 player


Good chance it is the hard drive - that's a fairly old technology. I have heard of some people having some success replacing the HD with a compact flash card on some older mp3 players, I seem to recall the connector is the same. I guess if you have a suitable CF card reader, you may be able to remove the hard drive and check it out with the reader - there are some hard drive diagnostic tools out there you can try. Gibson research's spinrite was pretty good back in the day, not sure it is still useful for more modern drives.

Boot failure or just nothing?

Boot failure would be the hard disk.
Just nothing would indicate that the system board is dead.

You don't mention using the mains power adaptor.

Boot failure


1st go to Ihttp://www.shamrockman.net/ and dload the version you want to run. My PMP shows 1.23 but I couldn't find that version so I now run 1.24.. Save the dloads in a new folder on your computer.. There should be (7) items that dload to your computer.

*** I have found that just copying the files to your PMP Player will NOT work.***

I had to delete ALL (7) of the system files and folders.
1.) BMP folder
2.) etc folder
3.) system file
4.) (4) "Version-[0x..... " files..

So there were (7) items I had to delete. Once deleted go to the folder you saved the dloads to. I had to click and drag each item to the drive your PMP player is connected to. Once all (7) items have been placed on your PMP player disconnect it, turn off the power, wait a minute and turn it back on. These steps worked PERFECTLY for me. Please let me know in this forum if this helps..

Thanks..

try this. the iriver doesn't boot at times ( wrong charger or using the right charger abroad), unlatch the battery and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. also reset the instrument. hopefully that might work for you.
