    I do have the same problem. I was transfering songs to my mp3 player and the computer froze. When I rebooted my computer the mp3 player wouldn't respond so I turned it off and restarted it and now all that appears is the same message you have. I pushed the reset button several times but nothing seems to work not even charging it. Can anyone help?

    I'm having the same problem. I've had mine for more than a year and for the first time, it's giving me a serious problem. I was syncing some files last night through Windows Media Player. Well, I usually stop it because it will sync everything that I may have deleted. I stopped the sync after a while and unplugged my play. No my screen reads "System Intializing...Please Wait" with the clock going and after a while (or when the battery dies) it powers off. I've read where I needed to upgrade the firmware but I am unable to connect to my PC because I can't get past this message. OH, LET THERE BE A SOLUTION!

    I synced my iRiver H10 completely and then did a database refresh, as i always do after a full sync. Did this last nite and found the database was still refreshing when I checked this morning. Tried resetting but now I'm stuck on the 'system initializing please wait' screen.

Try doing a format via windows explorer. Right click on the drive and then format as fat32. Then unplug and open iriver plus. Reconnect. See if that works. Good luck!

System Initializing Problem


I had the same problem. Solution 2: Running EasyH10 from Sourceforge.net worked. To add to the solution you must run the mp3 player in Emergency mode (reset device, hold power button and button with circle on it, enter button I think). Let computer detect the H10, then run the software. At the bottom of the EasyH10 screen, select model/firmware and device location letter (i.e E:\). Click OK. The screen will display info about the device and run through the database of music. Once complete your device should work like new now.
