H10 MTP firmware Edit

An H10 player with Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) firmware is recognized as a portable device (e.g., "Windows Portable devices") by default. MTP mode has more compatibility with online music services than UMS. Although you can still access the content of the player working on MTP mode, the access is so limited that no application can access directly media database files. However, you can change the player mode from MTP to UMS temporarily by the UMS Trick.

H10 UMS firmware Edit

An H10 player with a Universal serial bus Mass Storage class (UMS) firmware is always recognized as an external HDD (e.g., "RIVER Mass Storage Device") by an operating system. Windows 98SE/2000/ME/2000 automatically assigns a drive letter (e.g., "D:") to the player. You can copy your music files or whatever freely as if you were handling a storage media. UMS mode has less compatibility with online music services, but we can transfer DRM-protected WMA files via iriver plus or Windows Media Player 10. Players working on UMS mode are compatible with a number of operating systems that support USB storage devices.

Read before starting anything Edit

  • Installing UMS firmware into MTP player and vice versa are not guaranteed by the manufacturer (iRiver). Do it at your own risk.
  • Be sure to charge the battery fully in advance so that the player will not lose the power during the procedure.
  • Do not omit a process. Above all, do not copy a boot loader (BL_H10.rom) and firmware (H10.mi4) file at the same time.
  • This tutorial assumes H10 player to be recognized as "G:" drive by a PC. Replace "G:" in this tutorial to the drive letter with which your player is recognized.
  • Configure the folder option in advance to see hidden folders with Explorer.
