Re: HDD Full

Hey, I got the same problem a few days ago when mine fell on the floor while playing music on my computer. At first it just had some issues with some files, but after an hour it completly died. Turned it on and 0000 files. Plug it in and not recognised. I am sad to tell you but it looks like the HD is broken. Mine makes a ticking sound when booting, obvious sign that it can't read the disk and keeps erroring. I haven't tried but you might be able to open it up and buy a new HD and replace it, but to get the files off it you would need to speak to a HD professional and pay lots of money. Hope you had a backup, I didn't and my 7000+ songs all gone.
If anyone did find a way or had success with anything please let me know.

500 songs, all gone but wont allow other downloads, "too full"

Re: 500 songs, all gone but wont allow other downloads, "to full"

Use settings "format" on mp3 player. This will delete any hidden files. If you download in one format (say like Ubuntu) and delete them under another (say Windows), files can remain in *.trash which is hidden. To avoid this in the future, try deleting with shift+del as it will bypass the trash folder.

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!

How do i put music on my digital touch mp3/mp4

There are a few different ways to do this. One is to connect it to USB, then go to my computer, find the drive with your player on it. Leave this window open, and then go and open up your music folder, click and hold on the song you want, and drag the folder over to the file folder with you player on it, and let go of button and it will be added. To add all your songs from music folder, click left top song so it is highlighted, then press and HOLD the shift key, the scroll to bottom right last song, click on it. Now all songs should be highlighted, then drag and drop all these files to your mp3/mp4 file folder and they will be added.
The other way is to get windows media player 11. Sync your device with sync button, create a playlist with all your songs, then add them to sync list and hit sync and they will be added to your player

What is IRM (iRiver Rights Management)?
The IRM is digital copyright information file designed by 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.

HDD not recognised

I am not an expert, but the same thing happened with me and that's because the bit connecting the motherboard to the hardrive has been damaged, so may be the same for you....
