You cannot get replacement parts except from a cheap broken H340 on eBay - the motherboard may be damaged on the one you order. Not available form manufacturer. Most of the time, I would say that these are not economical to repair, but 40GB players are hard to find - call best Buy's Geek Squad and see if they will do it. Otherwise, you will have to go with a local Mp3 repair service (Philadelphia is one of the few cities that actually has one of these).

My h340 will hang up after playing about 20 seconds and will not be recognized on my computer. I use the reset button but it hangs up again. Any ideas?


I read a suggestion to connect it to the computer via the media port first, then to the data port. That fixed my problems.

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.

Iriver H340 - new battery charges, but does not work...


Hi, I had the same problem with my H340. I bought a battery for $16 on eBay and swapped them out. The unit would say "Charging" but would never "Complete". When disconnected from the AC, it would not power up at all. I opened it up again and noticed that the old battery connections had the red wire on the left, the battery had the red wire on the right. I took the black and red wires out of the quick-connect jack and swapped them so that the red wire would no go into the player on the left. Works like a charm now.

Iriver H340 motherboard?


Hi , the price of the motherboard you might as well buy a newe Iriver mate , but if you wanted you might be able to salvage one from a broken I river on an auction site since replacements are not readily avalible for the public .. and as for complexity ,
it shouldnt be too hard but technician to preform the repair job would save alot of hastle in the long run.

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

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....
