Question about iRiver H340 MP3 Player

Corrupted recycled files

My H340 frequently fails to recognise any music files when I start it up. I have been able to identify that there is a corruped file in the Recycle folder and 4.5 Gb of recycled files that cannot be removed. i need to keep deleting and re-adding files from my PC - which defeats the purpose of getting a 40Gb drive in the first place. Any ideas?

My iRiver H340 player is showing the HDD error message "Total: 0000 Folders(s)" after I inadvertently disconnected the player from my PC whilst transferring music. Hence I can't access my music...

There is a chance that the file structure has been corrupted and the player cannot retrieve the directories.

I suggest you saving the files onto your computer and perform a format on the players's harddrive. Use a Windows utility or a programs like FAT32formater, available here:

Good luck!

Putiing music on the iriver h340

iRiver has a special DRM signature, and only recognizes certain file formats. iTunes will ont work with the iRiver,for instance. Here are the formats recognized:
MP3 file
: WMA file
: OGG file
: ASF file
: IRM file
What is IRM (iRiver Rights Management)?
The IRM is digital copyright information file designed by iRiver
Limited. The IRM technology protects copyright and property from
unauthorized usage of digital contents provided through iRiver

Use the proprietary software found on the IRiver website to transfer songs. If they still won't play, run the songs through Media Monkey or another Mp3 Converter to make them playable.

IRiver keeps loading and loading and ...

Just a thought, try removing the battery, then holding the rest button in for about 15-30 seconds, release it, then re-attach the battery, if that don't work, try removing the battery, then re-attach the battery while holding in the reset button, then release the button after about 15 seconds. Konqueror?, That's a Linux based file manager/internet browser, is it on your PC or the iRiver? If it's on the iRiver, then the operating system is more likely Linux based, and removing the battery then re-attaching the battery while holding down the reset button, should!!! (not everything works as it should) reset the machine.

HELP! H340 won't recognise new tracks I add to it! Help! I've had my H340 for almost a year now but whenever I connect it to my PC to add tracks I've ripped, or to change the titles of the tracks that...

There is a limit to the number of Characters in the file name. Have you made the filename too long? Where are the files located - you need to move them out of the RECORD directory? If you hold record button, you can scroll thru to BROWSER and the files will be shown there. I use MP3tag a freeware program to tag and rename my tunes, I have had no problems with it and my H340 Hope this helps,

Won't paly WMA files that I bought online!

I remember reading somewhere that if you upgrade your firmware of your H340 from US to international to get video you lose the ability to play DRM music. I from this I would that the international version can't play the copy protected files. I am not sure of the legalities in your location, but you may be able to work around the copy protection. Maybe a google search would give you some hints.
