    after having problems playing the files on my iriver (iti did not play any mp3 files) i deleted and formated it. Now when I add any files on it is does not see them at all. As long as it is connected to my PC they are there and can be played with Wndows Media Player, after I disconnect it - irever does not show any files either in the music mode or in the browse mode.

    use the onboard format because it might need certain files to be loaded.

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!

I am having a problem installing all of my songs into the device

I put my e280 into msc mode so you are able to see the player's folder in windows explorer then I formatted it from there once this had completly formatted I disconnected the player and returned it to mtp usb mode and then re-connected it to my PC.
It recognised the player and gave two options to sync with library I chose sync permanently with current library and it began to install music from the library.

My m250 wont format

I JUST formatted mine. Open up my computer and see where the sansa is located. Click once. It should say "music specific storage." right click and you'll have a format option.

Window XP does not recognize my H340 after battery change.

H340 should show as a removable disk drive. Ensure it is formatted as Fat32, run chkdsk, or scandisk. Does the H340 boot into play mode? you did not say. I replaced my battery with no problems... so if it boots Ok it is a non-related fault.

    Install and run the Device Manager software from the product CD.

    Use the Restore option to format the device and reload the firmware.

    This should fix the "Connect to PC" problem.

    To download tracks you need to use the Music Match software on the product CD.

    Make sure that the software recognises the player as "GoGear" and not "Removable Drive E:" etc

    If the software shows the device as removable drive then go into the Music Match options menu and click the drop down menu, select GoGear and click apply.

    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 (its free :-) )and use it to reformat your player.
