20 Most Recent iRiver iHP-120 MP3 Player Questions & Answers


Good chance it is the hard drive - that's a fairly old technology. I have heard of some people having some success replacing the HD with a compact flash card on some older mp3 players, I seem to recall the connector is the same. I guess if you have a suitable CF card reader, you may be able to remove the hard drive and check it out with the reader - there are some hard drive diagnostic tools out there you can try. Gibson research's spinrite was pretty good back in the day, not sure it is still useful for more modern drives.

every time you turn on h120 (it will reboot)...update by itself...unless you get stuck while playing (freezes)...you will need a little needle/ safety pin to stick in the tiny hole on the bottom of the h120.......just tap it and take the pin out...player will shut down and start up by its self........feel free to rate the help

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.

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)

have you tried playing it in ole iriver style (not rockbox). to see if you really did delete something. and if so go to www.iriver.com and download the the last firmware you had to rebuild. and hopefully you can come back to rockbox latest version also. its just a very late suggestion. oh yeah one more do you know of any one who has a 120 as yours (you can copy theirs software, but you will have to format yours in order for it to work correctly)

Press and hold button on left side with red dot (record)... You will see "stand by"...  Press the lowest button on right side (A-B) over and over until "source" is "int Mic"... when you are ready to record, press the left button w/ the red dot short and quick... recording will begin.  When youre ready to stop recording, press middle button (pic of square on it) on right side... that will stop it.
To find your recording, look in the "record" folder under "Audio"
