    Hi Paul 4265
    I tried your solution but no luck.I went to the local Apple Centre and they told me it was not possible

    to do what I wanted without software and that iriver had not released any and I would have to buy a mp3 player that was mac compatible

  • bobbloke878 Mar 17, 2011

    Cannot drag and drop music files to H10 without converting from m4a to mp3 and to erase files I had to

    reformat the player. I now can only play music from browser and that does not give any library function. I am going to try to borrow a windows computer,copy music to USB stick from mac in mp3,download iriver software to pc,copy from USB and transfer back to H10 and just use that for music on the go .See how that works.Now you can see how computer illiterate I am

I tunes is very picky. It will only allow you to sync to the ipod, iphone, itouch, ipad. Or a few other top end models of phones that Apple has approved.

One of the reasons why PC users despise apple, is because to use their software fully, you have to become an apple only consumer.

they force you to buy an ipod, if you want to use itunes and move your librarys around that you yourself most likely paid for.

Long story short, theres no way to sync the itunes library with the iriver.

Your only choice, would be to manually, go to your music folder. And transfer the music files individually to the Iriver by dragging and dropping them.

Hi, Bob.
I think I can help you with this so that you can get it working.

First, use the usb cable, and plug it into your Mac mini.

Next, open your computer, where it shows on the screen all the drives on your computer.

Your iRiver should be listed as well, although it may only be listed as a "removable drive".

Click on it, and then delete all the songs that you want to get rid of.

Next, open another instance of your computer, and open the folder that has all your itunes songs on it.

Copy any songs to the device, and you should be good to go.

I hope this helps you out, and have a nice day!

I cant add music


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

I River for Mac


I have an iRiver H10 5gb. In order to use it with the Mac, I have to connect it while in UMS mode. This basically turns the unit into an external drive.

To do this you need to first remove your battery to reset the unit.
While the unit is off, connect it to your computer. Hold down the 'o' key while turning the unit on. Holding both buttons down until you see "USB Busy Do not disconnect". Now you can release the buttons, you are in UMS mode. Now just drag and drop your files onto the player.

If you don't mind not being able to use some of the iRiver features, once you drag and drop the music files, you disconnect in the usual way and then play your music files from the browser on your iRiver.

(Unless you add the files using Window Media player or iRiver's Music Manager, you won't be able to access the files in any other way. )

Here are some of the programs/software/firmware that are supposed to help load files from the Mac onto the iRiver. One that most people seem to like is called the easyH10. I have also come across info to sync with iTunes. I have tried these, but because I am in UMS mode, they haven't worked.

Go to these websites and check it out.

Iriver won't let me upload from CDs and transfer....


Best way to use the H10 20gb is by creating a directory on your hard drive with your desired mp3 format files. Use ripping and encoding software with your existing audio cds.
Connect the h10 to the PC via the UMS trick (see this website).

Using a file directory on your pc, drag and drop the mp3 files from your pc to the MUSIC file folder on the h10. Install and run the EASY10 playlist creator software on your pc to organize the new files on your iRiver player. Disconnect the USB connection and enjoy!
