My H340 frequently fails to recognise any music files when I start it up. I have been able to identify that there is a corruped file in the Recycle folder and 4.5 Gb of recycled files that cannot be removed. i need to keep deleting and re-adding files from my PC - which defeats the purpose of getting a 40Gb drive in the first place. Any ideas?

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: http://tokiwa.qee.jp/EN/Fat32Formatter/
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

iRiver has a special DRM signature, and only recognizes certain file formats. iTunes will ont work with the iRiver,for instance. Here are the formats recognized:
: WMA file
: OGG file
: ASF file
: IRM file
What is IRM (iRiver Rights Management)?
The IRM is digital copyright information file designed by iRiver
Limited. The IRM technology protects copyright and property from
unauthorized usage of digital contents provided through 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.
To reset you need to have MP3 switched on, THEN hold the off switch for 10 seconds.If this fails to reset.You may have some corrupted music files

if you still have problems as i had the same issue and found a workaround.
There is a limit to the number of Characters in the file name. Have you made the filename too long?
Where are the files located - you need to move them out of the RECORD directory?
If you hold record button, you can scroll thru to BROWSER and the files will be shown there.
I use MP3tag a freeware program to tag and rename my tunes, I have had no problems with it and my H340
Hope this helps,
I remember reading somewhere that if you upgrade your firmware of your H340 from US to international to get video you lose the ability to play DRM music. I from this I would that the international version can't play the copy protected files.
I am not sure of the legalities in your location, but you may be able to work around the copy protection. Maybe a google search would give you some hints.
