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!

    I had the same problem - now I simply go in through the browser...

    Thanks John! The 'Database Refresh' did the trick!

    I have a similar problem, my player does not recognize the new albums I have put on to it... the window I use to "drag and drop" my files on to the device clearly shows the files as there, but they do not show up on the actual device.
    I have tried the "database refresh" option, and the device will recognize the files I have deleted but not the new ones I have added.. any idea?

  • Acacias Dec 05, 2007

    Sorry, through looking through the options on my device I have found the new files I have added under the "Browser" heading in the main menu.. but not in the "Music" section of the main menu.. any idea why they went to "Browser" instead of "Music" and how can I fix it?

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"

How do i delete all music/files on iriver as I want to start putting albums on again from scratch please?


I find that the easiest way is to open WMP (Windows Media Player) hook up your iRiver to your PC. WMP should recognize it sometimes you have to do it a few times. I think the f5 key will search for the player if it doesn't auto recognized in WMP. When the player shows up highlight the songs you want to delete and hit the x icon on the screen this will remove the songs. You can highlight one and hit cntr + A to highlight them all and delete them all at once ... hopefully this helps

How do i add album art to iriver x20?


if your using wmp11 you should just be able to drag and drop.
if not right click the song/album and go to advanced tag editor, pictures and then add manually.

half the time it just wont come up because the tag doesn't read properly and the other half the album art that wmp11 downloads and applys automatically will come up!

its kind of up to chance! if you're lucky it works if not live with it its the X20!

ps the iriver plus 3 and itunes also can apply album art

Iriver Mp3 player


what firmware version are you using?

IRIVER PLUS 3 MEDIA TRANSFER SCREEN


My understanding, as a new user, is that IRiver plus 3 only communicates with the player via UMS mode, which is not the default. Windows Explorer and Windows Media Player only communicate through MTP mode. If you change from MTP (the default) to UMS, it will reformat the player and delete all your files.

In other words, do not use iriver plus 3 unless that is the only software that you want to use. Boing back to MTP mode after a sync or download will then delete all THOSE files you just downloaded.

I just say NO to Plus 3.

Good luck.

Iriver H10


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

Will not syncronise with iriver plus, media player does not recognise devise


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
