Cajunito,
After more than 4 years of everyday use, mine stopped as well. The problem was that the [Play] button/switch soldering dislodged from the PCB. I opened the player and resoldered the [start/play/stop/off] switch back on the PCB. It now works again. I noticed the problem because I could still get the player to operate by using more force and put some side pressure on the switch, which apparently pushed the switch and the PCB together to make contact again.
With a problem like you have there can be many different causes, so this might not be your solution.
Regards,
Robert Ilbrink

That is one SURE way to kill an Mp3 player - it is toast. I know you do not like my answer, but it is the only truthful answer. I have saved THOUSANDS of Mp3 players - this is the one scenario where the player cannot be revived. But if it makes you feel better:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Iriver t20 problem

have you tried hitting the reset button when it hangs? You need to use a pin to do so, there's a small hole on the end of the player.

Take the battery off, wait 10 seconds and put the battery back on. Then attempt to connect to the iRiver firmware updater in emergency mode. Then use the recovery tool, which will erase everything on the playe,r and re-format the drive.

Should result in a good-as-new player.
