I'm having trouble identifying which device the 130mx is;
Is it actually a T30, or is WMP mis-identifying it ?
It's usually worth checking the iRiver site for firmware updates -
they did updates for H10 for example when WMP11 was released
It's also worth deleting sync relationship in WMP - connect the
device, if it's set for automatic sync : Plug the device in, go to
Sync, click the small drop down arrow below that, then choose the
iRiver and "End sync partnership".
Next, go to Control Panel, Device Manager, see if the device is there
and uninstall it. Unplug and reconnect the iRiver, which should
refresh the device install, and restart WMP to see if it works better.

Hi, Windows Media Player 11 on Vista syncs perfectly with my trusty iriver H10, however, when it exports music files to the iriver it creates its own folder titled 'music'. The problem is that the iriver operating platform does not recognise the music folder and hence the files do not show up in the album, music or artist lists. They can be found in browser but that is of no help. I am running version 2.53 of teh iriver firmware. Media Player 10 placed the files in the approriate folders. Can anybody help? Cheers, Andrew

Hi Janworks4u. Question for you... Did your mp3 work fine with WMP 10? I ask because WMP 11 is known for causing problems w/mp3 players. You can try reverting to WMP 10 to see if that fixes your problem. To do this:
click START, click on CONTROL PANEL, ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS (look at the top center of the Add or Remove Programs box that pops up for a little square you can click on that says "show updates." Click that box and then scroll down to WMP 11. Click to change/remove. A box will pop up confirming that you will revert to WMP 10. NOTE THIS WILL NOTE DELETE ANYTHING FROM YOUR COMPUTER! All of your music that is in WMP 11 will still be there in WMP 10!
Now you can try to load your songs back on through WMP 10 and hopefully it'll work for you. Good luck!
As I like MTP mode a lot better than MSC (I can use WinAmp to sync and it doesn't have to restart and refresh its database after disconnecting) I didn't like a lot of the solutions to this and similar problems telling to go to MSC mode.
However, I was able to go into Device Manager (right click on My Computer, click Properties, select "Hardware" tab, click Device Manager) and find the Portable Devices sublist, right click on "Sansa e280" (it had a yellow exclamation point on it) and click install driver. I followed this through, selecting automatic installation for the driver, and presto! Sansa is installed and ready to go. I actually had Windows Media Player open during this process, and while it wouldn't recognize it before, after doing this process, I went back to WMP and it had already found it and was trying to get me to sync it. So if you like MTP, try this. It worked for me.
(Note: this method may not work, unless you tried to plug the player in and it told you that there was an error in setting up the device. My problem was that I had installed WMP 11, but had not done the final "setup" process. After I had run WMP 11 for the first time, I was able to do this successfully).
Make sure you have the latest version of Windows Media Player. XP has all the right drivers but the iRiver needs to synchronise with Media Player inorder to transfer music onto the player using the sync function. Get Media Player 10 or higher then plug the iRiver into the computer.
The Windows Media Player Sync function is worthless. It takes forever
and offers no real benefit except to people who cannot organize their
MP3s themself. And if it doesn't fully sync before you disconnect your
iRiver, the software crashes and you have to reset the player (this
erases all your files).
