I've had my iriver H10 20GB for less than a month. It has seemed fine during playback although it often crashes when transferring files. Using the reset button solves this problem. However, after the last time it crashed and I reset it, it is refusing to start up. When I attempt to power up, a clock with a rotating hand appears on the screen along with the message 'system initialising please wait'. After a few minutes the clock's rotating hand freezes and nothing more happens. I've tried starting the player in emergency connection mode, but this doesn't help. Can anybody help me get the player started again? I don't want to be forced to return it after having it such a short time. It seems to be pretty unreliable.

I had the same problem. I got some electronic contact cleaner at Frys Electronics and sprayed a bit around the button, so that a little got inside. The button started working again instantly. If yu don't have contact cleaner you could first try a drop of denatured alcohol... I don't think it's as likely to work, but I also don't think it will hurt anything.
a Couple of months ago I had sort of the same problem although my H10's got 6G...anyhow what solved my problem was downloading the current firmware, then I installed WMP 11 (10would also work) and restarted the device...then connected it and finally updated the firmware just by folowing the steps of the same programe...that's it hehe hope it works also for U guys. Oh and try to backup all your music or start downloading it all again as you'll loose it from the player.
Try to re-format it.
on player go to settings, then advanced then format. select format, say yes and it should reboot.
if that doesn't work you need to upgrade the firmware. got to iriveramerica.com, support, ultra portabale support and download firmware updater software.
