Try to hit the record and the power button. First hit the record for a
second or two. Then after that hit the power button and hold the record
button down until you hear it beep. Once you hear it beep that means you
have loaded the iriver firmware. After that you should be able to load the
rest of the files.

Let me know if this helps.

Subject: More IRiver Problems

Hi there, I think I completely screwed up my IRiver h10. I was attempting to
install rockbox on it. I got the boot loader copied on and then attempted to
unzip the firmware files into the main directory, but when I got to the list
of drives to unzip to, the IRiver wasn't on there, even though I'd done the
Ums trick and it'd shown up previously. I thought it might've been a
connection problem so I disconnected and re-connected the device from my
computer. That's where I made my mistake. After that I got an error message,
apparently the boot loader was running but couldn't do anything since the
firmware wasn't installed. Now, even after resetting and doing the Ums thing
all over again, the IRiver's Usb screen won't even show up, thus keeping me
from doing anything about this problem. I'm afraid I may have to return the
player (I have a warranty) but I know IRiver isn't particularly kind to
people who install rockbox on their players. Since I'm blind, I'm hoping
that bringing up the fact that I had to install the firmware to increase
accessibility will help, but I'm not sure. Has anyone had any similar
experiences? Is there anything I can do to save my IRiver or should I just
bring it back to the store and get another one? Hope someone can help.
Thanks in advance, Kerri
