Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Deleted files still on machine

I have managed to delete some songs from my player. Unfortunately, the folders (artist name, album names and songs) have not been deleted so they still show on the MP3 player(although if I try to play them, the titles are displayed but cannot play as the files themselves have gone). When I view the contents of the MP3 player on Windows Media Player (Vista version) the offending folders are not displayed so I can't delete them. Any help appreciated but please keep the explanations in simple language as I'm not an expert with computers.

    Thanks fo your suggestion.

    I have tried to do what you suggested but have not been able to.

    I have gone to computer and then right clicked on iriver.

    The options that come up are

    Explore
    Open
    Import pictures
    Create Shortcut
    Rename
    Properties

    I have scrolled through them all and cannot see a format option.

    There is a format option when I open the iiver icon in Windows Media Player, but this is in faint text and the computer does not do anything if I click on it.

    I am working on Vista, so I don't know whether that makes a difference.

    Hi,

    I don't have an icon which says "browse" specifically. I have tried "explore" which I assume (perhaps wrongly) is the same.

    The folders that have music in them come up. However, the problematic files do not appear on the computer - they only appear on the MP3 player itself.

  • Jeremy Dixon Aug 07, 2007

    I can't see the window you mentioned through doing this. The iriver comes up as "other devices" but I can't do anything with it. It is possible that tese solutins might work with XP, but Vista seems to be quite different. Thanks for trying. I will repost the problem as you suggested.

I'm assuming you're using a 5 or 6GB H10 so you need to update the firmware for Vista "compatibility", you can download the updater from www.iriveramerica.com/support/hd/h10_5-6gb.aspx. However the advice about formatting the device is correct, the devices file system has not been updated by media player to reflect changes so the player thinks the files are still there, you may be better off using iRiver music manager which you can download from www.iriveramerica.com/download/iRiver_Manager_v316sp.exe you will want to install/run it in Windows XP w/SP 2 "compatibility" mode. Compatibility is in inverted commas because Vista is a compatibility issue, just generally, Microsoft really do produce poor quality products at premium prices and the sooner more people gain day to day experience of using something, anything else, preferably Mac OS X, the sooner more people will realise just why geeks are so down on Microsoft. With any new version of Windows don't switch until at-least Service Pack 1 has been released and even then check the forums first.

Jeremy, I think the actions below will remove the offending data/folders 1. Connect the player to your pc 2. double click on "My computer" 3. Right Click on the player's icon 4. Choose Format That should be it. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. D.

    I see.
    Try this: Click Browse and then try to format (using the right click) each of the folders.

    Let me know how it goes.

    My bad, I meant explore :-)
    One last thing I can think of. try doing the following:
    1. click on my computer and see which drive your mp3 is on (D:,E:,F: etc)

    Now click on Start - > Run (on the bottom right end of the opened pane and type "Format Q:" (Where Q is the Drive your MP3 is on, as mentioned earlier).

    I really hope this will work. If not I suggest asking for another opinion (it's over my league I''m afraid)

    All the best,
    D.

How to delete songs


There's no way of directly deleting a song on the player. You need to do it either via Windows Explorer, or a music manager program which "syncs" to your player.

To delete a song via Windows Explorer, connect your Sansa to your PC, open up "My Computer" (or "Computer" if you're running Vista), and you should see your Sansa listed there. Double-click on it. If you then see "Internal Memory", double-click on that. You should then see a list of folders including "Music". Double-click on that, and you should see a list of songs. If you see a list of folders named after your Artists, double-click on the appropriate Artist folders to find the songs you want to delete. Select the song(s) and press "delete" on your keyboard.

If you use a music manager program such as Windows Media Player, Media Monkey or Winamp to sync music onto your Sansa, just delete the song from the music manager library or playlist(s) you're syncing to your Sansa, then do another sync.

Samsung K3 mp3 player


To erase a music file, you must plug the K3 into the computer, and when a window pops up that says "Open in Folder", "Open with Media Player", etc. Choose "Open in Folder" then go to "Internal Storage", then choose "Music". From there, you can delete by artist, or if you click on a folder that has an artist's name for the title, you can erase by album. From there you can erase by track by double clicking on an album folder.
To erase, right click the folder you wish to delete, and select "Delete".

Cant arrange songs according to my way


I used ID3-TagIT to change the album name of my songs to the name of the folder on my Sansa c250 that I want to put the songs in. Open your Sansa in My Computer, double click on Internal Memory and open the music folder. Add a new folder and name it whatever you put in for the album name of your songs. Highlight all your songs and drag and drop them into your folder. Don't use media player to sync or they end up all mixed up in different folders.

Hi tater. Hmmm. The product category you selected is for a Standard E260. But if your player is an E250R (Rhapsody player), here's a set of procedures that might help you. Deleting songs from your E250R can be done in 2 ways: By using Windows Media Player 10 or 11, or by browsing the player through Windows Explorer. Before you delete files, though, it's important to know that your player comes in 2 modes: "Rhapsody" and "PlaysForSure". The reason why is that music files saved in one mode would not be seen in the other mode, and vice versa. Therefore, if you can't find the music files in your player, switch to the other mode. Here's how to do it: Use the "Menu" button to navigate the player as follows: Menu > Settings > Mode > This will give you the option of: "Rhapsody" and "PlaysForSure". Here's how to delete your songs: (1) By Using WIndows Media Player: > Plug your Sansa to your computer and open your Windows Media Player. > If your Windows Media Player is version 10, then click on the "Sync" tab and you should see your player ("E250R") on the right pane along with its folders, named "Data" and "Media" or "Music". Expand the "Media" folder and you'll see the "Music" folder containing your songs. Right-click on a song and select "Remove" to delete them. > If your Windows Media Player is version 11, then either click on the "Sync" or "Library" tab and you'll see your player listed on the left pane. The music files will be displayed on the center window. Right-click on a song and select "Delete" to delete the songs. (2) By browsing the player in Windows Explorer Note: the folders containing the music files on your player are "Hidden" and you would need to set your Windows Explorer to show "Hidden Files and Folders". Open your Explorer, select "Tools" on the top menu, select "Folder Options", select the "View" tab and enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button. > Plug your Sansa to your computer and open your Windows Explorer > If your player is in "PlaysForSure" mode, then your player will be recognized as a "Portable Media Device". Double left-click on your Sansa E250R and you'll see 2 sub-folders named "Data" and "Media". Open the "Media" folder and you'll find sub-folders normally named after the Artist. Your songs are located on those Artist folders. Delete them by using the keyboard "Delete" key or right-click the file and select "Delete" > If your player is in "Rhapsody" mode, then your player will be recognized as a "Removable Drive" with a drive letter. Double left-click on your Sansa E250R and you'll see the following sub-folders: "Albums", "Music", "Photo", "Pictures", "Playlist", etc. Your songs can be found in the "Music" sub-folder. Delete them by using the keyboard "Delete" key or right-click the file and select "Delete" I hope this procedure helps. A bit lengthy but, hey, it worked for me (lol).
