    Pressing the power button and menu button didn't work either. Does this mean THE END!

This can be a dead player already so if its under warranty better have it replace from them..

Good luck.......

Hi,

Initially, pls try:

  • remove the battery for a couple of minutes;
  • charge the battery for a few hours;
  • check if your version has a small recessed reset button;
  • in some instances, a format/re-install firmware may be required. Pls check the small CD that came with the unit.
  • Incidentally, this happens when the firmware has been messed up caused by removing USB connection without proper procedure or when drag & drop is used instead of being sync'ed it with WMP.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

It is possible that it may be a problem with your battery. I would assume that you have charged it. Please try changing your battery. There are spare batteries available online. Also if after you get the new battery and it does not turn on then the unit is shot. but if you turn it on and the screen freezes you can follow the directions below (note that this will reset the unit and you will loose all data)

1. Turn the player off
2. Hold the menu button in.
3. Still holding the menu button in, press the power button.
4. Keep holding both buttons in until you get a dialogue asking if you want to format internal memory ... say yes.
5. Your internal memory will be formatted and you will now be able to start your X20.

    If you plug it in a computer with the charged battery and the computer does not recognize it that means the End unfortunately

IRiver X20 movie problem


yea the iriver x20 isn't very reliable when it comes to video files. there could be like 10 things wrong with the codec and even if u fix all of them it doesn't help. your best bet is to convert to wmv using the iriver program or another program like winavi converter. its really fustrating i know but its just how the iriver works.

Iriver X20 database full


does the message stop you from using the iriver?
if it doesn't then there's a format function on the iriver in the settings menu...
if it does then there may be a problem with the usb connection...
either the iriver isnt responding or the computer can't read it!
for the user below there is most likely a format will fix it...

IRiver X20 Docking station


IRiver does not make a proprietary dock for this player; other manufacturers do not make them for IRiver because iRiver is a small player. You can take your IRiver into a Best Buy or other shop and test it in another company's dock, but it is not guaranteed to work. This is the only truthful answer I can give you.

Iriver X20- playlists and videos


yeah, basically all i did was change my settings to MTP.
then i went into internal hardrive (just in normal usb mode)
i selected the songs i wanted and right-clicked (make sure to do this one one of the songs you selected) in the options that come up it should say "create playlist" (in bold) i clicked that, it wouldn't let me rename the playlist... but it worked fine... and now they come up in the right place, i didn't even use Iriver plus 3.
