Folders inside my IRIVER X20 no longer recognised!! HELP PLEASE!!!
This is the second time its happenned. After plugging my Iriver into a friends PC it no longer allows me to view any folders inside includig MUSIC and RECORD!!! Only the files put straight onto its 'Desktop' equivalent are available and even when I navigate the Iriver thru a PC the Folders are not there but it still says the data space (over 3gig) is used! I NEED THE RECORD FILES I am a musician and have recorded hundreds of ideas int there. PLEASE HELP I know the data is there I need to be able to view it and back it up before rebooting the whole thing! THANKS :)
Re: Folders inside my IRIVER X20 no longer recognised!!...
Try making a new folder, under the same name as the ones lost, or missing. Since the X20 is flash memory based, you may have had some of your data go randomly corrupt. You MAY have to start things over. Sorry! Good Luck!

try to upload the songs onto it with windows media player 11
i only use iriver plus 3 for videos
when ur in windows media go into sync then it has like a side bar just drag the music into that and down the bottom of the bar it says sync press that
and if that doesnt work u might have to buy a new one
ok, plug it into the pc and run iriver plus 3, if you dont have it, you can download it from the iriver website.
then you connect the iriver.
then open tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization..
this should format your iriver and give it default settings.
i think you should try this...
if you dont already, download iriver plus 3
open iriver plus 3
plug in iviver
go to tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization
this should format your iriver and replace all the original files
i reccomend only putting music, video, pictures and ebooks on via iriver plus 3
and also please make sure you safely remove the iriver each time you connect it to the computer
if you dont, there is a chance that you will screw your iriver, you may have heard of the "building library" problem, which nobody has found a solution for yet.
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, firstname.lastname@example.org
if it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver
the simplest player is windows media player 11 cos it sorts out all your songs into folders...
if your wanting to see the actual folders use iriver plus 3, it comes in the pack with the iriver. however the program is slow and doesnt work as effectively as wmp11.
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.
