Question about iRiver PMC-120 Digital Media Player

2 Answers

Not recognized by my Win XP SP2 computer

My laptop recognized the device 4 days ago and I was able to remove all but a few of the MP3s stored on it, as well as half of the movies. Problem is, I removed these files using Windows Explorer (the device acting as a hard drive) then tried to sync with WMP11. No luck - no files were transferred. Attempted to transfer for 2 hours, gave up and the next day asked a tech friend for help. He gave up after not finding drivers - wouldn't even try it on his 2nd or third computers, each with a different config! (Sorry, ticked about that) Now when I connect it to my laptop I get "found new hardware mtp device" but it doesn't find the iriver. I've taken out the battery, hit the reset button a couple times, no luck. Also tried a different USB cable with a connection that fit the player. Tried running it as the only USB device installed. None of the above worked.

You probably erased some of the players system configuration files in the process of your file removal. You might want to reformat the device by going to my computer and right clicking of reforamt this device. Once completed you might want to unistall the device as well and make a complete fresh install of it by either installing the driver again using the players website download or the cd that came with you player. To unistall the device do the following: 1)Go to start 2)Right click on my computer and select properties. 3)Once there go to the device manager tab. 4)make sure it is connected 5)Find your device and right click and click uninstall. 6)After just restart your system and install the driver again for your player or insert the Cd another alternative would be instead of uninstalling is to check for a device update.

Go into the Device Manager in in the my computer menu and remove the device, then do a cold restart (disconnect power) of the computer and see if it recognizes the device again.

My laptop does the "found new hardware, mtp device" popup, but doesn't recognize it as iRiver


Here's the link for the user manual if you need it; http://www.iriveramerica.com/download/pmc/PMC-100.pdf check page 137 of the pdf and try the restore to original settings. do you have the setup cd? - it has troubleshooting for the unit, which is not available on the website there are no drivers available, it uses windows media player as a driver, but the manual and the support site; http://www.iriveramerica.com/support/multi/pmc100_faq.aspx both claim that you need windows media player 10, not 11 to synchronise. you can download it from this link; http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx or install it from the setup cd just uninstall wmp11 first. many of this type of unit and mp3 players etc have problems with wmp 11, hopefully reverting to 10 will allow you to sync Hope this helps :)

Half of song list not recognized by Sansa e260


i will surely help you. you have mentioned that you can see all the songs when your mp3 player is connected to the computer. so what you can do is, you can very well go ahead & format all the songs in your mp3 player using your computer. then you transfer a few songs to your mp3 player(the songs which were not getting recognized in your mp3 player). this should solve your problem.

Transcend tsonic 850 freezing up


If your MP3 player still has warranty, take it back to the store or get it repair. Try to avg scan all the files on your MP3 player and your laptop as well. There might be a possible virus or a corrupted file that is causing your T.Sonic to froze.

SimpleTech hard drive not found by my computer


This may or may not help, but it worked for me! After about 4 hours of trying everything (Device Manager/Uninstall, Disk Management, etc..) nothing at all would work. The USB external hard drive would power up but when you plug it in, the New Found Hardware will pop up and search unsuccessfully for drivers for a PLUG AND PLAY external drive!?!?!

In any event, I simply plugged another USB drive into my laptop (and desktop) and viola! The new hard drive was recognized and installed immediately as 'plug and play' should do. I then unplugged the new drive and tried plugging in the one that was recognized and all of the sudden....IT WORKS AGAIN!!!!

This fix might not help anyone who doesn't have a second USB external drive, but you could try plugging another USB device in and get it to load and then unplug it and try your drive. It worked for me on my laptop and then I did the same thing to my desktop (which also wouldn't recognize it) and it worked on the desktop too! Problem solved for me, thank GOD!

Hopefully, this bypass can save you a few hours of google time and unwanted anguish. Like I said, you may not have another USB drive but try plugging in any other USB device until it loads and then unplug it and then plug in your USB drive that wasn't working. It worked perfectly for me.

Hope it helps!!!!

CD drive casusing problems


Since the CD drive is not being recognized, here are my suggestions:
1-Reseat the CD drive. In other words, remove it from its docking bay and plug it back in.
2-If that doesn't work, reload the driver for the CD drive.
3-If that doesn't work, replace the drive.
4-If that doesn't do it, you probably need a new motherboard.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating.
Thanks you, and have a super day!
