    i've had my iriver e100 for about 3 months now, it has always worked perfectly untill a couple of days ago when I was recording something and it just turned off.

    I can't get it to turn on and when i connect it to the computer nothing happens, and the computer doesn't say that it's connected.

    if I press 'reset', will I lose everything I have saved on it?

    is there anything else I can do?

    i guess I have a similar problem. My iriver is constantly on though. It shows the iriver screen on startup but does nothing after that. When i press reset it goes black then returns to that screen and when i connect it to my computer nothing happens it just stays at that screen. If anyone can help please tell

I accidentally unplugged my iriver e100 from my computer when it was doing a firmware update. now it stays frozen on the main screen!! Plz help!! D:

on the side of the mp3 player above the lock switch is a very small reset button. it can be pressed using a paper clip, a safety pin, the post of an earring, mechanical pencil led, or something else of similar width and length. press and hold this button until the screen goes blank. it may turn back on itself, or you may need to manually turn it on. it should be fine now.

My iriver e100 works but wont turn on or off, any ideas?

First thought is that you might have the lock set, the slide button on the left side of the device. Slide down to unlock.
