Here is the fix: Boot Failure

Sometimes just downloading and following the procedure in Boot Failure does not work, because the system files cannot be overwritten, in this case follow the additional instructions here to delete manually the system files.

Boot failure or just nothing?

Boot failure would be the hard disk.
Just nothing would indicate that the system board is dead.

You don't mention using the mains power adaptor.

Boot failure


1st go to Ihttp://www.shamrockman.net/ and dload the version you want to run. My PMP shows 1.23 but I couldn't find that version so I now run 1.24.. Save the dloads in a new folder on your computer.. There should be (7) items that dload to your computer.

*** I have found that just copying the files to your PMP Player will NOT work.***

I had to delete ALL (7) of the system files and folders.
1.) BMP folder
2.) etc folder
3.) system file
4.) (4) "Version-[0x..... " files..

So there were (7) items I had to delete. Once deleted go to the folder you saved the dloads to. I had to click and drag each item to the drive your PMP player is connected to. Once all (7) items have been placed on your PMP player disconnect it, turn off the power, wait a minute and turn it back on. These steps worked PERFECTLY for me. Please let me know in this forum if this helps..

Thanks..

Iriver pmp 120 use the wrong charger


try this. the iriver doesn't boot at times ( wrong charger or using the right charger abroad), unlatch the battery and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. also reset the instrument. hopefully that might work for you.

You might need to change your format from NTS something to FAT32. Hook up your iriver to the comp. and right click the iriver drive..scroll down to format and click the arrow to chang it. My brother told me how but i still haven't tried it yet b/c he said that i needed a older comp. to do it. but i believe it'll work once i have the option to choose FAT32.
