Hi! I have just put around 2500 songs on a 20GB iriver H10 and my music files do not appear in the music selection on the first selection of what to do on the iriver (i.e where you choose music, then you can access the artists, songs and playlists etc.). however the files do appear in the browser selection. i was just wondering if you could let me know how to make the music appear in the music section. cheers, megan

Best way to use the H10 20gb is by creating a directory on your hard drive with your desired mp3 format files. Use ripping and encoding software with your existing audio cds. Connect the h10 to the PC via the UMS trick (see this website).
Using a file directory on your pc, drag and drop the mp3 files from your pc to the MUSIC file folder on the h10. Install and run the EASY10 playlist creator software on your pc to organize the new files on your iRiver player. Disconnect the USB connection and enjoy!
OK, one day i turned on mu iriver and it's say's "system file missing to restore the system files connect to H10 to iriver and i dont know how to connect it.The other proplem when playing the music it's like a scratch CD i dont know how to fix it.
H10 20GB isn't user replaceable. I found a diagram for how to replace it, Mystic River had it. Doesn't look too bad.
Finding a battery though...good luck with that! The downfall of iRiver is that they don't offer replacements. (I don't think, at least)
As for getting music onto your computer from the H10, it's not too difficult. You'll have to go into it from My Computer and whatever drive it's on and then just drag and drop after finding the music files.
Hi StevieB Try following.1/Prepare a handy tool (straightened paper clip) to insert into "reset" hole atop of H10 2/gently insert tool into reset hole and feel a click 3/ turn on H10 if this works great 4/if H10 continues to jam lock up then it may require reloading firmware sounds complicated but easy steps available chk iRiver support website
I am using windows2000 OS, can not yet justify a faster Pc to run XP .. following is what I use to load and manage my MP3 audio files on my H10 20GB
>using an alternative to WMP 10, I use 'EasyH10' .. prepares an H10 player without iriver
plus or Windows Media Player 10 based on music and playlist files transferred manually using windows Explorer
Info re Easy_H10 URL http://www.misticriver.net/wiki/index.php/Easy_H10
- connect USB cable between Pc and H10
- place H10 in 'Lock' position
- use a tool ( refashioned paper clip ) to press the reset button
- start H10 in USB Mass Storage Device Mode... Hold down 'O' button, continue holding 'O' button
while you press the 'On / Off ' button until screen displays USB connection, after emergency display
- In Windows Explorer locate the ' removable drive'
- Transfer your music files with tag information to 'Music' directory on H10
- Run EasyH10
- for Media database construction to display songs in MUSIC mode.
- Playlist conversion, a necessary process for your playlist files to become compatible
(recognizable) with an H10 player.
- EasyH10 also imports/exports tuner presets from/to a text file.
They don't make a battery for the player. My experience with iriver is that they only replace your player with another refurbished one if it's under warranty. Contact iriver.com and go to support, they will help you to a certain point. Sounds like some music files are corrupted, did you download them from Limewire? Lots of nasty stuff out there. Remember your player is a Hard Drive just like your PC and can be damaged by improper disconnect from your PC.
