Iriver H10 20GB - i can't access my music through Artists or Albums
Hi. Please help me!!! I have never had a problem with my iriver, up until now. I have just added 2 new albums to my iriver via Windows Media Player as normal, and then when I disconnected from the computer and tried to access my music on the iriver through 'Artists' I noticed that my library was scrambled and no longer in alphabetical order. Then I clicked on one of the artists and none of their albums were showing up. For some of the artists when i clicked on them it just took me straight back to the main menu.
I then went into 'Albums'and tried to access the albums, but when i clicked on them it again just took me back to the main menu. The only way I found to access my music was to view the entire list of songs!
Please help me get my iriver back to normal without losing all my music!
Re: iriver H10 20GB - i can't access my music through...
Have you tired doing a "Database Refresh". It's located on the main screen under "Settings". Go to Database Refresh and check "Yes". How much music you have on your player will determine how long the refresh will take. If that doesn't work possibly run the Firmware Updater from iRivers' web site and only update the database, do not do a complete "Recovery" or all of your music will be erased as that choice reformats your hard drive. Only choose "Update Firmware" Regards, John H.

it's because the iriver doesn't reconize the artist. the artist name, album etc is set in the file's info. you can write that info yourself so the iriver can reconize it. for example I opened Winamp, imported the songs I wanted in my iriver, right clicked on the the first songin my list, selected FILE INFO and went on and completed the artist field myself. did the same to every other song....and now the iriver reconizez the artists.....it takes some time indeed...and I don't know of any other easyer method that works.....but this one surely will. good luck :)
