Downloading movie length DVD to iriver x20

Yes, you need to convert all your movies to a format iRiver and understand and play.

Here's a link:
Movie Converter for iRiver and instructions

I'm not sure whether Movie Converter supports original DVD files. If that is not the case, then you'll have to convert DVD video into a format that iRiver X20 can use, and then feed that new video to Movie Converter.

However, that would be a bit redundant: to save on time and quality, you could use other video Conversion tools, such as SUPER:


After loading your DVD, you set the parameters to mirror those accepted by your iRiver model. In case of iRiver X20, those parameters are:

Extension: AVI [[also known as container]]
Video Codec: WMV9 SP, MPEG-4 SP [[MPEG-4 = XVID, DIVX]]
Video Resolution: max 320 × 240
Video Framerate: max 30 fps
Video Bit Rate: max 512 kbps

After successful conversion, upload your new video file to your iRiver X20 and play it back. If it plays [and plays correctly] - then congratulations - it works! If it does not play, then you might have made a mistake while setting the output parameters in SUPER.

Hope it helps. Rate me. Thanks.

Can I 'hide' audio files anywhere?

unfortunately no matter where you put the file it will appear in your music library!

the only way to hide it is to make the actual file hidden by modifying it!

White button is unstable

This is because the button has been used a lot or incorrectly, you will need to get it repaired.

How do I turn it off

Try holding down the "play/stop" button.. the arrow and square symbols. I hope that works! I have a different model so I'm hoping it will be the same.

I've had 2 crashed iriver X20

Hi. I just had solved my Build Library problem. Use my solution on your own risk.
The solution is the following:
1. open up a player (find 8 screws, not 6, 2 of them are on the left side of the player under the round stickers)
2. jently take off a circut board. (you need to access its bottom)
3. Find a memory chip. It is labeled like "samsung k9hbg08u1m"
4. find chip's key meaning start of pin numbering (small circle on the corner). There are 48pins. 24 on the left side (1-24) and 20 on the right (48-25) see chip's manual http://catalog.gaw.ru/index.php?page=document&id=11348 page 4

5. On the right side find pins 32-29 (find them as the second 4 pins from the chip's circle key opposite corner)
6. Connect them together with some metalic wire (don't touch two middle pins on the right side of chip, it is chip's power supply).
7. Holding those pins together connect USB cable to player's socket.
8. After a while player will show error on its screen, get metallic wire out of pins, and then the player will be available as flash storage on the PC.
9. Format flash storage with quick format.
10. Disconnect and assemble the player back.
11. Connect to PC and upload new music.

How do i set iriver

You can shuffle music with Iriver S100.
It's quite tricky, took me for a while to figure out.
1. Go to music page and then play any music.
2. Prees and hold the right arrow > the sub menu will popup.
3. Go to 'Play Mode' and then volla !!!! choose whatever you want.
