Try making a new folder, under the same name as the ones lost, or missing. Since the X20 is flash memory based, you may have had some of your data go randomly corrupt. You MAY have to start things over. Sorry! Good Luck!

Same happened with me, after mac connection

ok, plug it into the pc and run iriver plus 3, if you dont have it, you can download it from the iriver website.
then you connect the iriver.
then open tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization..
this should format your iriver and give it default settings.

hope this helps you!

Song names in X20

i think you should try this...
if you dont already, download iriver plus 3
install it
open iriver plus 3
plug in iviver
go to tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization

this should format your iriver and replace all the original files

i reccomend only putting music, video, pictures and ebooks on via iriver plus 3

and also please make sure you safely remove the iriver each time you connect it to the computer
if you dont, there is a chance that you will screw your iriver, you may have heard of the "building library" problem, which nobody has found a solution for yet.

i hope this helps you!!
good luck!

Iriver X20

can you connect it to your computer?
if so then format it then run iriver plus 3
plug it into the computer
then go to tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization

if you cannot connect your x20 to your computer
there is a tutorial on the iriver support page saying you can format it by,
holding down menu butting and turning it on
but that didnt work for me..
otherwise, its stuffed..
if its stuffed, dont throw it away, ill buy it off you..
contact me if your interested, [email protected]

External memory - sd card recognition on pc??

if it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver

Not getting software to connect iriver mp3 player to connect with pc

well...
the simplest player is windows media player 11 cos it sorts out all your songs into folders...
if your wanting to see the actual folders use iriver plus 3, it comes in the pack with the iriver. however the program is slow and doesnt work as effectively as wmp11.

Iriver x20 - freezes and wont show as a connected device to pc

When you connect the PMP to the computer does it say your new device is ready for use or something else like 'the device has malfunctioned'?

I have the same issue that frequently the computer won't see the PMP. Keep trying it sometimes works. If not then its likely that the harddisk is dead or dying.

Iriver mp3 player

Same problem on a 2GB x20 I just bought. Easy to get things into the device, but nothing recognized as playlist either using iriver plus3 or Media Player.

Blocked Iriver X20

Yes, try running a format from your computer to the IRiver with it plugged into the USB port. I have done this with several friends MP3 players and it works great. In other words plug your MP3 player into your computer as you usually do and from windows or dos in your accessories run a regular format of the MTP portable device or whichever drive dos says it is. Then presto you can again load music or whatever your MP3 player take into it again.

Car stero won't recognise device

Only solution is to switch to a different type of car adapter, like a casette adapter. iRiver is too small for car manufacturers/adapter manufacturers to bother with.
