Somehow the driver went missing. Click on "My Computer" and then click "view system information," then "hardware," then "device manager," then click on iRiver (it'll be there even without the driver) and then it will give you a yes/no option to look for driver software. Obviously, click "yes" but notice that you are also cued to put in a CD "if you have one." I still had the CD. It will search both the CD and online for a driver, but the computer found the driver software on the CD. Make sure you only put the CD in when cued to do so. If you don't have the CD, then contact iRiver about getting a driver download or having them send you a copy of the CD.
I spent quite a bit time trying above solutions for "iRiver T10 not being detected". None of the above worked. What finally worked for me was to find a computer that had not been upgraded to Windows Media Player Version 11. With Windows Media Player Version 10, the T10 is correctly detected, iRiver's firmware install tool works, I upgraded the firmware, and now, finally my friend's T10 works on all my computers (including Windows Media Player Version 11 computers).
Mi iriver t 10 no me enciende
On your player go to settings screen, then to advanced, then to format. select format, then yes. Player should reboot. Then try connecting again. iriver uses windows media player now. shouldn't need anything else.
