Question about iRiver H340 MP3 Player

1 Answer

New Music files copied to my iriver will either not play or partially play

Following an accident where my iriver was thrown against a wall (less said the better), my iriver has had problem playing newly copied files, where the files either partially copy (ie the songs will only play between 50%-75% of their duration or they will not play at all (The iriver tries hard to play the files but gives up).  To guage the problem if I copy a 10 song album, 3 songs will play perfectly, 4 songs will play partially and 3 not at all.


The problem is inconsistent, as I have made 3 attempts to copy the files to my iriver and different songs will affect at each attempted copy.


All existing data on the iriver play perfectly, although since the incident, it is noticable that hard drive is more noisy and takes considerably longer to load.


Is there any way of soilving this problem, or is my hard drive dying?


Thanks for any help

My iriver t6 will allow me to sync music but when I try to play it the screen says no file

your problem because the music that you copied to the player is not in the right format, that is what I think, try to do the following these steps:
1 - download a converter that converts your music to the mp3 format.
2 - convert your music to the mp3 format.
3 - copy the songs that you had converted to your player.

if this works please rate like very helpful and vote me, thanks.

Iriver won't let me upload from CDs and transfer....

Best way to use the H10 20gb is by creating a directory on your hard drive with your desired mp3 format files. Use ripping and encoding software with your existing audio cds.
Connect the h10 to the PC via the UMS trick (see this website).

Using a file directory on your pc, drag and drop the mp3 files from your pc to the MUSIC file folder on the h10. Install and run the EASY10 playlist creator software on your pc to organize the new files on your iRiver player. Disconnect the USB connection and enjoy!

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.

have you tried playing it in ole iriver style (not rockbox). to see if you really did delete something. and if so go to and download the the last firmware you had to rebuild. and hopefully you can come back to rockbox latest version also. its just a very late suggestion. oh yeah one more do you know of any one who has a 120 as yours (you can copy theirs software, but you will have to format yours in order for it to work correctly)

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.
