no instructions

Beth Beaver Enterprises, Inc. "Beth Beaver", Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: I received no documentation for this product at all. It may work fine but until I have time to research on line to see if I can find some instructions for it or come across someone that knows how to use it, it is a pretty red box sitting in the bottom of my drawer. Very disapointing!

The Iriver Music Player - NO LONGER a Music Player for Linux Users!

Walter L. Williams "Walt L. Williams", Amazon
2 March 2008
  • Summary: If you are a Linux user, DON'T be fooled by the lure of this players ability to play OGG-Vorbis music files. This player uses a Microsoft only interface called "Music Transfer Protocol", or MTP, and can only be accessed by Microsoft Windows Media Player, version 10. (And by what I have been reading on the blog groups this player is also not usable by Macintosh Apple - MacOS-X users.

piece of junk

Dan Geisler "e7alt", Amazon
26 April 2007
  • Summary: I have a different iriver, the ifp 899 which was apparently made before iriver decided to save money every possible way they could, in order to maximize their profits. the T30 costs almost the same as the 899, but has all the worthwhile features taken out. You have hardly any control over the quality of the recording you make, way less ability to navigate--you name it and it is NOT in this machine.

Windows Media Player incompatibility

John Connolly, Amazon
11 March 2007
  • Summary: Incredibly frustrating. I was quite happy with my T30 until I recently upgraded my windows media player to version 11. It became IMPOSSIBLE to add any new music. There is a firmware upgrade on the iriver website, which I downloaded and installed three times. It just doesn't work! I managed to solve this problem only by rolling back to WMP 10. BTW, I emailed iriver customer support about this problem and waited 17 days for a response.

Don't bother with this MP3 player!

T. Marks "Music Lady", Amazon
2 January 2007
  • Summary: I consider myself a well-versed computer user and have used a few mp3 players in my time, including my current 30GB Creative Zen vision M. I purchased (2) iRiver T30 players for my daughters Christmas presents in 2006. Both Napster and iRiver expressed that these players were compatible with the Napster To Go service. I made the choice to purchase based on their compatibility and price, but I forgot the old saying, "You get what you pay for!

Decent player with problematic Audible file implementation

gordonbw, Amazon
13 October 2006
  • Summary: I was looking for a "do-it-all" player for music, voice and audiobooks. Although the iRiver T30 handles the first two functions pretty well, I advise you not to buy this unit for its support of Audible files. In this mode it works (sort of), but I have discovered several very annoying quirks. As soon as I use the voice recording feature, the unit: 1) Will not save bookmarks in an Audible file.

does not work with Toshiba laptops

G. Anderson, Amazon
17 September 2006
  • Summary: Beware -- this unit does not work with Toshiba laptops. Tech support is non-existent. You will never get through on the phone. Email support is non-existent. You will have to wait weeks to hear back. If it does work with your laptop, this unit does a great job of recording and playing.
