Battery does not hold charge, does anyone know what kind of battery i need?
Iriver quit doing service work and i am trying to figure out what type of battery this thing runs on so a local battery shop can order and replace it. The current battery will only hold a charge for 1.5 hours, sometimes less. if anyone knows any info on battery type i would deeply appreciate your advice

yea i know what ur talking about. unfortunately the iriver x20 can only read SOME types of playlists. for example the windows media playlist that some people use doesnt work but the .m3u files which u can convert on winamp does work. its a real pain i know but that's why i just add files while i listen to them on the music menu of the x20.
hope that helps!
you can change battery and/or upgrade hard drive (if changing hard drive, save the software to pc then copy to new hard drive)

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.
try this. the iriver doesn't boot at times ( wrong charger or using the right charger abroad), unlatch the battery and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. also reset the instrument. hopefully that might work for you.
If your player freezes on "Building Library" (usually a result of putting certain type of .m3u playlists or too big images in id3 tag):
1. Turn the player off - you may need to take the battery out to do this. 2. Hold the menu button in. 3. Still holding the menu button in, press the power button. 4. Keep holding both buttons in until you get a dialogue asking if you want to format internal memory ... say yes. 5. Your internal memory will be formatted and you will now be able to start your X20.
Try to figure out what file is causing X20 to freeze - i've found that pretty much any .m3u file will make it freeze on building library ... only about 2-3 out of about 100 i've tried have worked.
battery. if you are charging it and it won't hold the charge perhaps you just need another battery. the worst thing it could be is the motherboard. i would try sending it in to see what the problem is.
Just a thought, try removing the battery, then holding the rest button in for about 15-30 seconds, release it, then re-attach the battery, if that don't work, try removing the battery, then re-attach the battery while holding in the reset button, then release the button after about 15 seconds.
Konqueror?, That's a Linux based file manager/internet browser, is it on your PC or the iRiver? If it's on the iRiver, then the operating system is more likely Linux based, and removing the battery then re-attaching the battery while holding down the reset button, should!!! (not everything works as it should) reset the machine.
