My iriver X20 works fine all the features work as they should however there is a problem with the headphone jack. for some reason it does not seem to get a 'clean' connection and the sound does not come out properly. some turning of the phones seems to work but it soon turns again when i move. cheers benny wright aj_wrighty@hotmail.com

IRiver X20 movie problem


yea the iriver x20 isn't very reliable when it comes to video files. there could be like 10 things wrong with the codec and even if u fix all of them it doesn't help. your best bet is to convert to wmv using the iriver program or another program like winavi converter. its really fustrating i know but its just how the iriver works.

IRiver X20 scrambled sound on every song


i've recentlly had the same thing but mine fixes itself immediately after scrambling for 2 secs...
in your case though, if its just 1 song it could be the song codec. if otherwise then either try differnet headphones or maybe open it up and see if the headphone interface still works.

Headphone jack failure


Normal repair shop can't fix it
iRiver will not send you the headphone jacks, although you can purchase a broken iRiver on Ebay and obtain jacks for this purpose - be careful - you are risking other damage to player
You must get the entire player replaced
Sorry, but this is true of nearly all Mp3 manufacturers.
This is the only answer I can give you, because it is the only truthful answer.

Headphone Jack


I have now had 2 of these units with the same issue.

I returned the first unit to the place of purchase and demanded a new one (buggered if I wanted to have a repaired unit after only owning it for a couple of weeks).

The second unit developed the same problem so it got returned as well. This time I rang the iRiver supplier and asked for a new one to be returned to the orginal place of purchase so I could swap it for a different brand.

I'm still having trouble finding a similar player that has the A-B repeat feature. Now I'm wondering if its 3 times a charm.

You should send yours back asap and ring the supplier as well.

Good luck.

Same problem on a 2GB x20 I just bought. Easy to get things into the device, but nothing recognized as playlist either using iriver plus3 or Media Player.

Downloading movie length DVD to iriver x20


Yes, you need to convert all your movies to a format iRiver and understand and play.

Here's a link:
Movie Converter for iRiver and instructions

I'm not sure whether Movie Converter supports original DVD files. If that is not the case, then you'll have to convert DVD video into a format that iRiver X20 can use, and then feed that new video to Movie Converter.

However, that would be a bit redundant: to save on time and quality, you could use other video Conversion tools, such as SUPER:

http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

After loading your DVD, you set the parameters to mirror those accepted by your iRiver model. In case of iRiver X20, those parameters are:

Extension: AVI [[also known as container]]
Video Codec: WMV9 SP, MPEG-4 SP [[MPEG-4 = XVID, DIVX]]
Video Resolution: max 320 × 240
Video Framerate: max 30 fps
Video Bit Rate: max 512 kbps

After successful conversion, upload your new video file to your iRiver X20 and play it back. If it plays [and plays correctly] - then congratulations - it works! If it does not play, then you might have made a mistake while setting the output parameters in SUPER.

Hope it helps. Rate me. Thanks.

IRiver headphone jack


By the sound of it, I think your headphone jack might be damaged by "tear and wear". In that case, there's little you can do aside getting it serviced. If its warranty is void or expired already, you MIGHT be able to repair it yourself, if you're handy with soldering iron (and, possibly a hot glue gun). However, that would require quite a precision work, patience and vigilance 'cause you could easily damage other electrical components, either by physical means or by burning them out with excess heat... if you're willing to risk it, that is.

To sum it up: you do need to service it.
