Ive had the iriver H10 20gb edition for the past 6 months. and I really like it. Prior to this Ive had very few and very minor problems with it, (As in nothing simply resetting it, reinstalling the firmwear, or re-syncing it didnt fix) But recently it hasent been able to hold a charge, The battery registers and displays as if it if Fully charged and then, very quickly drops form fully charged to no battery life at all. The "death" process takes less that 30 mins. Where as it would normally take several hours and at times even a few days depending on the ammount of use. And the problem happened Instantly rather than progressing or worstening over time, And to my knowlage there was nothing to bring about a malfunction ( such as external damage or anything like that)

Re: battery wont charge correctly
Probably a hardware issue that requires replacment, but: 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.

I encountered the same problem that u were having after about 7 months of use of my iriver pmc. When i connected my iriver to the usb cord it showed up on my computer, therefore my computer detected it but when i wanted to open my MEDIA file it took awile and my iriver froze while trying to update. The only solution that i came up with was this: 1. You have to go to control panel. 2. Go to system icon. 3: After you click the system icon the system properties page should show up. 4: Next click on Hardware and then device manager. 5: Then u have to click on the Windows portable devices which should be on the bottom, then double-click on "iriver portable media center". 6: Now you will have to click on driver and UPDATE the driver. Unfortunately this will format your iriver but it will fix the problem. Just copy and paste all your songs back on your iriver.
