System Initializing Problem

Someone has posted the same problem but there wasn't a solution for it. I have an H10 iriver and it's been working fine. I was just syncing music onto it from my computer and when I unhooked it, it frooze. I reset it, then it started up, but it stays on the 'system initializing, please wait...' screen forever! I've tried charging the battery and hitting the reset button numerous times but nothing works. Please help me!

I had the same problem. Solution 2: Running EasyH10 from Sourceforge.net worked. To add to the solution you must run the mp3 player in Emergency mode (reset device, hold power button and button with circle on it, enter button I think). Let computer detect the H10, then run the software. At the bottom of the EasyH10 screen, select model/firmware and device location letter (i.e E:\). Click OK. The screen will display info about the device and run through the database of music. Once complete your device should work like new now.

Format, make sure you use "recovery" not "reinstall" and it worked for me. You'll lose all your music, but at least it'll work again.
