Question about iRiver H340 MP3 Player

1 Answer

IRiver keeps loading and loading and ...

A lot of the music files had got badly corrupted, so I reformatted it (using the system format) and resynced all the music. Looks like I have added quite a lot of new music since I last synced as there was only ~100 Mb when I'd finished (according to Konquerer). I then updated the database using iFish, which seemed to go OK, however now the iRiver will not start; it gets to the loading screen and just sits there 'till the battery runs out. I think the problem may be that there wasn't enough space for the database, so the device keeps trying to read to the end or something. However as it won't start fully, I can't delete anything or try reformatting again. I have tried the reset button - it just stops the device. Does anyone know of a way to fully reset the device ? Thanks Ben

    Are you sure about removing the battery ? I've been looking on some other forums it it's not a trivial step...

    Konqueror is on the PC, used as a file explorer, recent versions automount and unmount the iRiver very nicely.

    The device is still using iRiver Firmware (1.30 E)

    H340; a FAQ I saw on another site suggested you had to remove the hard drive and circuit board before you could remove the battery.

    Is there any chance your method might work if I ran the battery right down ?

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.

Hello Sir,Infact when i want to download something in my memory card there is written MSDC write error.So please guide me how can i get rid of this problem.


This may be related with a corrupted or bad sector in the msdc more than anything in the iPhone or music player. If you have used this memory a lot, erased and copy many files over time, it may be a good idea to back up and reformat the memory using a low level format so it will take some time to really erase and format the memory. But if the damage sector is hardware or physical and not an error on the format you may need to live with it or replace it. Anyway check with another msdc device and verify if this is related to the particular msdc you are using.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

Sir i have my iriver mp3 player for more than 3 years it was working very fine but last year. when ever i start it it shows me file check error. and it runs the radio very flawlessly but there i cannopt...


Sounds like a corrupt file system. Assuming you are using Windows, If you can view the disk in My Computer, right click on the drive, select properties, tools tab, in the error checking option select check now.
You may also be able to format the drive by right clicking on the mp3 player's hdd and selecting format, then quick format. Copy any music you wish to keep though on a separate drive as format will erase it.

My T10 IRiver Browser will not work


re-format it. on player go to settings, then advanced then format. select format, say yes and it should reboot. if that doesn't work you need to upgrade the firmware. got to iriveramerica.com, support, ultra portabale support and download firmware updater software. Not a bad idea to upgrade firmware in either case. Your music will be lost when you format but you can simply re-load it from your music manager on your PC.

Formating problems


The H140 needs to be formatted as a fat32 file system for the players firmware to recognise it. To check which file system you have formatted to connect your player to your pc and go to > my computer >right click on your player > then click on properties. It will tell you what file system you have. Windows will only format to ntfs file systems, so if you need to reformat you will need to download Swissknife http://www.compuapps.com/download/Swissknife/swissknife.htm (its free :-) )and use it to reformat your player.
