Hi

have a look at this it explains all... http://deliverator.silverfir.net/?p=354 it seems that the rockbox old version was the problem!

I'm just in the process of updating mine to v.3 which is how I found your query.

Cheers.

SOURCE: 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.

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 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.

Motherboard hard drive connection


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).
