I would appreciate any help I can get...

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.

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'm gonna start with your last problem, the memory. Phones usually have 2 places to store files, the phone's storage, and the mini-hardisk storage. Try to seek your phone, in BlueTooth settings, where to store files, or when you browse your files, just look somewhere that says other than Phone Storage. Bottom line is that you have to change where the files go. For the first problem, try and unplug your phone after you copied the sound into mp3 folder, and then replug it, does it still appear in the MP3 folder? Contact me live for more help.

I installed a second WD My Book, after the first one inexplicably filled up too quickly. Now the second one has inexplicably filled up also. What could be causing this?


The most logical reason for this problem to occur is because you're storing too many files in the ROOT of the external hard disk drive (HDD). The Windows file system can only manage a limited number of files (about 500) in the root of ANY drive. It is better to store those files in a FOLDER on the drive; Windows can manage an infinite number of files IF you store them inside a folder. Let's see if we can resolve this step-by-step:

1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the external HDD (drive E:, drive F:, drive G:,or whatever letter it has on your system).

2. If the external HDD does NOT have a name (such as "WDMyBook01", or something else easy to remember), RIGHT-CLICK the letter of the external HDD; Windows will give you the option of creating a NAME for the external HDD.

3. Create a name for the external HDD, you can use any combination of letters or numbers, but NOT MORE than 11 characters in length. By creating a distinct name for your external HDD, you'll have an easier time remembering which MyBook drive has certain files on it. Be sure to do this for BOTH external HDDs.

4. Next, create a new folder in the ROOT of the external HDD; give it a simple SHORT name, such as "Folder01" (no quotes).

5. MOVE ALL OF YOUR FILES from the ROOT of the external HDD into the new folder you just created.

6. In the future, put ALL your files into a folder on the external HDD, so you can avoid experiencing this problem again.

7. As you've probably already guessed, it is also a good idea to avoid putting more than 500 files into the root of ANY HDD. SOME files MUST be stored in the root, because that is where Windows expects to see them, but don't add any of YOUR files, the ones you create or download, into the root of the drive.

8. This numerical limit also applies to USB flash drives and other storage devices. You avoid this problem the same way, by creating folders in the root of the drive and storing all files inside a folder.

Good luck with this; let us know if you have any questions.

Iriver h340 shows no content or does not load properly


Sounds like the battery is dead. Rechargeables only last so long. I'd copy all the content off it, before the battery dies totally, which could make it not work even connected to your computer. Looks like you can get a replacement battery: Iriver h340 Google Search
And here's a video on replacing the battery: How to Replace the iRiver H340 Battery

IRiver H340 Hard Drive Capacity Problem


The reset button will not delete any file or function, just press that.
When you connect your H340 to PC, you may right click the H340 drive icon, and select 'property' -> clean up drive

Will not play all songs on mp3 cd


It's possible you are reaching the 99 folder limit of the deck. Count how many folders (artist folders and album folders) there are between Alkaline Trio through John Butler Trio. The manual says there is a maximum of 99 folders acceptable, but it doesn't say what happens if you have more.
I also assume the bitrate of the songs is 320kpbs or below, yes?
The manual also mentions "Folder hierarchy is allowed up to eight tiers. However, practical hierarchy of folder is less than two tiers", whatever that might mean.

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....
