System files - windows doesnt seem to now be able to detect iriver

I disconnected accidently whilst uploading to my iriver (whilst writing)... it now says 'system files missing' ' top restore the system files connect h10 to iriver plus' sounds easy huh?... windows (xp) detects the iriver as a mass storage device but not as a seperate drive... the iriver plus )program) does seem to detect the attachment of the iriver... (even tho windows beeps.. indicating its detection). I have read else where on the net that i need to format the iriver... but i cant seem to do this whilst its not showing up as a drive (and there doesnt seem to be a 'format' option available under the device drivers --> disk drives) PLEASE HELP ME... Yoursz in desperation Bob (thankyou!)

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

My iRiver H340 player is showing the HDD error message "Total: 0000 Folders(s)" after I inadvertently disconnected the player from my PC whilst transferring music. Hence I can't access my music...

There is a chance that the file structure has been corrupted and the player cannot retrieve the directories.

I suggest you saving the files onto your computer and perform a format on the players's harddrive. Use a Windows utility or a programs like FAT32formater, available here:

T10 MP3 file check error

Make sure you downloaded the firmware from the official product page, if the firmware doesnt work try downloading an older version. Some firmwares have problems detecting updates.

Still, my guess is that you are not downloading from iriver site.

Iriver h10

http://www.iriver.com/product/p_detail.asp?pidx=71

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.
