Iriver IHP 120 taking 15 minutes to boot

Ive had my player for 5 years, so its been a great run, but it just started taking really long to boot up... The screen will light up, and its reading the files, but what used to take seconds is now taking a whole 15 minutes. During this time I cant stop it or do anything with it. It ultimately starts and functions well, but the wait is definitely an issue.
I know, its old, and there are so many others out there to replace it with, but truly this good old player STILL does a lot of things these players dont.  Thanx!

Your hard drive is just fine (i have a ihp100 with a 30 gb). it all depends on the amout of track and type files on the ihp -120. but getting back to speeding up your boot time (try ROCKBOX) www.rockbox.org you can still have your 120 with a less than 30 second boot up time, customize equalizer, while playing screens and more. and you are right the new players do match up to ours.

Recording setting

live recording (using mic) can be great depending on the speakers and your position from it .(dj live up close on the speaker can be destorted) your recording setting should be 1/4 up since the dj most likely is full. TRIED NOT TO RIDE THE '0" RECORDING MARK. the bars while recording should be tapping '0'.the mic on the iriver is quite powerful . now if you are using a line in option (this will take out the liveiiness)

In: 100-240V~50-60Hz 360mA

be careful I once fried an IHP-120 by using the wrong charger. I replaced the battery but taht wasn't the issue. I had it replaced with a IHP-140 and now my old charger has gone too. I got a replacement through the company I bought it from but they have none left.

IHP-120 MP3

You can download the software from Iriver goto support then to download and select your player. I would recommend re-formatting your player with a program such as swissknife http://www.compuapps.com/download/Swissknife/swissknife.htm in case you've accidentally partition it somehow. It probably wouldn't hurt to run windows scan disc after formatting(right click your player in my computer and select properties then tools then error checking and check th automatically fix errors box.

Reset button iHP 120

Nope, you're fine, it's just like pressing the reset button on your computer/playstation/whatever. It will just restart the iRiver and once it's restarted everything will be there just like it was before :)
