Question about iRiver H320 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Formatting After having some problems printing from the unit using a computer in a small copy center, I couldn't get my own laptop to recognize the iriver unit, I have had no trouble with that before. I was able to reset the unit, but it says the disk is full now and I can't get to any files. My laptop does recognize the unit through the media port, but I can't do any thing with it (get to old files, import new ones or record anything) I've tried to reformat from my computer and from within the unit, but it won't let me do that either. Any help would be appreciated!

If it was a bad sector problem, I would think formatting it would isolate the bad sectors and reduce the usable size to then consist of the remaining good sectors.
I wonder if you have an intermittent connection. You could try opening it up and making sure the drive was seated into the connector properly. See the initial steps of Denny's battery change guide to see how to do it.

Your new laptop is having trouble reading the file system of your drive. the easiest way around this problem is to copy your drive to another drive. then reattach the drive and when it asks to format it say yes. After it has formatted the drive just see if you can use it to save a doc say and then see if it will delete it. If the drive now works ok then copy back all your data onto it and all should be well.

When i play it show no data

Possible that the format is not recognized as the format required for the player or the files are corrupt and the player does not recognize them.
Connect player to a PC and check the properties, if not copy them format and reload with the correct type- after conversion.

Hi mattbarrett2 !
Hi , I was in a similar situation a while ago , meaning I needed to back up a Win95 HDD .
I succeeded by taking the drive out of the desktop and connecting it to a win 7 pc . I first tried by putting the drive in a external USB box and connecting it to the Win7 machine . It was a Quantum drive . The pc recognized the drive in the Device Manager but I couldn' access the data in " My Computer " . Then , I connected the Quantum inside my Win7 machine , directly to the IDE port but not using the power plug yet . I booted the computer , waited for Win 7 to be settled and connected the Quantum to the power plug and it worked . I was able to transfer the full content
( 1 GB , ha ha ! ) on a dvdrom and format the Quantum afterwards . I didn't need it anymore but I could have easily placed it back into the Win95 unit and install a new supported OS on it .
Maybe this will help you ?
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

The problem most likely is the Dell does not recognize the MAC file format (HPFS), but the MAC will recognize the PC's FAT 32 file system.
First format the USB mass storage device using the Dell, format this device in FAT 32 not in NTFS because the MAC can read and write/copy PC format files but the Dell/PC cannot read MAC format files.
Then Safely remove this device, connect it to the MAC and copy the files onto this drive. When you connect this device to the Dell, you will be able to see the files.
Have fun.

Reinstalled printer after having desktop cleaned

Your printer must must be connected to the computer. Does the MFC say Check connection? The Brother software must be installed. It creates a folder called ...\Control Center 3\Scan inside the user's My pictures folder where the scanned pictures are stored. That is what I get when I use the Scan button on my MFC-5460CN. If you use the Control Center you can choose the target storage location as well as the picture format (.pdf, jpg, etc.)

Hope it helps

How to print a regular document from Microsoft Word, Excel.

Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

Print too small

There is a copy setting within HP solution center where you can change the copy size. Set it to "Actual Size" or increase the percentage to get bigger prints.
