Hi, I have an iRiver H340. It's a few years old now and out of warranty. The problem I am having is that the hard drive is 37.2GB full (obviously it is a 40GB drive), I have deleted 1GB worth of files to free up some space however, it doesn't seem to free up any space. Should I press the reset button? Will pressing the reset button delete any files? Thank you in advance for your help. Kind Regards, Liz

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
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.
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.
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).
Have you tried a program such as drive rescue (I got a portable version (for PC)from portablefreeware.com) Likewise roadkill's unstoppable copier(google it, sorry no link) I don't know of Mac equivalents.
From memory the hard drive is a 1.8" Toshiba drive. If this is the case, you can get a USB enclosure to plug it into. (I got one on eBay for a similar situation with a faulty X-drive) You will need to pull the h340 apart before you buy it because there are a couple of pin configurations for 1.8 in drives. If you have to resort to cracking it open there was a video on youtube (I think) showing you how.
