Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Weird Langauge My iriver H10 has worked perfectly for about 4 to 5 years, but today after it was done charging I turned it on and in my music folder were songs in a weird language. I tried connecting it to my computer to see if that would fix the problem, but instead all it seemed to have done is make the file names longer in this weird language. I would appreciate it if you or any of your staff could help me with this problem. You may contact me with information on solving this problem at IAmSirKibbles@yahoo.com Thank You.

Get your manual ready and prepare to fly blind - the manual lists the exact menu order - you must press the up,down,left, right, and select buttons exactly as if the words had been in English and change the language back to English, or do a factory reset in the menu. We will not be able to talk you through this over the computer - get your manual. Available on iRiver website if you no longer have it.

I had this problem at first too. the only thing you have to do after it's done syncing disconnect it and turn it on. then afterward go through the options till you find database refresh and wait for it to refresh and all your new music should be in it.

Lost h10 iriver installation disk


You can download the software from this site;
http://www.iriver.com.au/iriver/index.cfm?pageID=10001

Probably also from worldwide site. www.iriver.com

As a work-around you can copy files with Explorer to the Music folder and use the Browser on H10 to play them.

How to back up music library


Plug in your Mp3 player
Double-click My Computer
Double click the icon corresponding to your iRiver
Double click the music folder
Right click the desktop, select "new," and select "folder" - create a folder named "Temporary iRiver Backup" (or whatever name you want to give to the folder)
Start dragging files from "My Computer" window to "temporary IRiver backup" window

There are other ways, but this is one good way.
