IRiver H320 fails to power up

I got this H320 IRiver 9 months ago. When I bought it, I powered it up once, then put it back in the box. Now I'm trying to power it up, both after a long time on the charger and via USB connection to my laptop, and it shows no sign of life. It's had no use, abuse, etc, never had anything loaded beyond the original material -- I think there was a sample of music on it. I've tried the reset with no effect, and it's been on the charger for almost a day. I checked the charger, and it is delivering the 5 volts DC. To be clear, no indication of any response to charger, USB, or to any buttons being pushed.

Iriver H320

Apparently most of the Mp3 players use a common garden variety Lap Top Hard Drive like a Toshiba etc. I have a Friend who replaced his in a Creative Zen. So Either take it a a reputable Laptop repair firm or simply pull the back off and check it out yourself. I haven't down this yet because I am still trying to Back up the contents of my H320 before it fails completely. When you pull the back off it should have a small hard drive just clipped into it using a wiring connection similar to a Laptop. Find the numbering and get a compatible replacement. The you may need to download a Firmware update as an exe file from IRiver and put this in the bas directory of the H320 and run it. THis sets up the necessary software. You may even be able to put in a larger hard drive 40 or 60 gb as they are all the same price depending on your budget. Let me know how it goes as I will be doing the same job shortly.

Iriver H320 battery problem?

I had a similar problem. It seemed to just die with a light blue backlight, not the usual one. It would not turn off or on. I thought it was gone for good. However, I re-installed the driver (in control panel, system, hardware, device manager) I had to do this a number of times, with the h320 attached by usb and not attached. After a number of attempts, I got a message 'disconnect iriver h320' I then let the 320 completely lose its battery power (over a day or so) then attached the charger and got the charging message. It works fine now. Hope this helps

I have a US model of the H320 - You have to update the firmware, but the US model only got to 1.04 and it sucks - go to
and download the KOREAN version 1.31 version - it supports the US model. Once youupdate the firme ware on your H320, you will have to go the the main menu and switch the language to english.
