20 Most Recent iRiver E150 (4 GB) MP3 Player Questions & Answers

Hi, I had the same problem with my Iriver E200. The cause is firmware corruption.

I solved this problem using this method:

1) connect your Iriver device to pc and open the disc of your player;
2) you can see various folders: open the folder named "system";
3) this folder contain a *sys file;
4) open this file using notepad;
5) go to the row "version = ...";
6) you have to modify this row by inserting an older version of firmware. For example if you have "version = 1.11", insert a smaller number, for example 1.07. Save the *.sys file edited. In this way you can force iplus3 to reinstall an uncorrupted version of firmware;
7) now open iplus3, go to Tools -> Portable device -> update firmware. You should be able to reinstall firmware.

Hi mje42001...

Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.

Somehow the MP3 player is unable to play the music. This may be because the format of the music is not in the MP3 format, so therefore in fact it is there, but is unreadable by the MP3 player. Make sure the music files are .mp3 format.

i think you could be trying to play the wrong format of video, i really need more information but for now my suggestion is to use a program like "Handbrake" its free off the internet and convert your movies to mp4 or mp4v handbrake will do this conversion for you then its just a matter of transfering them to your device.
hope this helps thank you.
