Question about iRiver H340 MP3 Player

1 Answer

IRiver keeps loading and loading and ...

A lot of the music files had got badly corrupted, so I reformatted it (using the system format) and resynced all the music. Looks like I have added quite a lot of new music since I last synced as there was only ~100 Mb when I'd finished (according to Konquerer). I then updated the database using iFish, which seemed to go OK, however now the iRiver will not start; it gets to the loading screen and just sits there 'till the battery runs out. I think the problem may be that there wasn't enough space for the database, so the device keeps trying to read to the end or something. However as it won't start fully, I can't delete anything or try reformatting again. I have tried the reset button - it just stops the device. Does anyone know of a way to fully reset the device ? Thanks Ben

    Are you sure about removing the battery ? I've been looking on some other forums it it's not a trivial step...

    Konqueror is on the PC, used as a file explorer, recent versions automount and unmount the iRiver very nicely.

    The device is still using iRiver Firmware (1.30 E)

    H340; a FAQ I saw on another site suggested you had to remove the hard drive and circuit board before you could remove the battery.

    Is there any chance your method might work if I ran the battery right down ?

Just a thought, try removing the battery, then holding the rest button in for about 15-30 seconds, release it, then re-attach the battery, if that don't work, try removing the battery, then re-attach the battery while holding in the reset button, then release the button after about 15 seconds. Konqueror?, That's a Linux based file manager/internet browser, is it on your PC or the iRiver? If it's on the iRiver, then the operating system is more likely Linux based, and removing the battery then re-attaching the battery while holding down the reset button, should!!! (not everything works as it should) reset the machine.

I've been adding music to my mp3 and one day I used a different site to add music, so ever since that day I couldn't turn on my mp3 player. It turns on to the "go gear vibe" screen then...


Hi theondraw,
I see that you mp3 will not work now after adding Audio from a different site.
It is possible that the format of your mp3 was compromised or shall I say corrupted, that only way is to format the mp3 again and start a fresh audio list all file on your mp3 could be corrupt now.
Reformat your mp3 and try adding audio using only application or program, mp3 players have specific formatting when adding audio and form other site it may be different and could damage the file system.
Waiting for 4 day will really not work that will just let the unit stay rested and not do any fix, Reformat the Unit add Add Audio an try it again, just an advise use only one program/application when adding audio on your mp3 to prevent file corruption.
Have a nice day.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,
mvincentc

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

Hello Sir,Infact when i want to download something in my memory card there is written MSDC write error.So please guide me how can i get rid of this problem.


This may be related with a corrupted or bad sector in the msdc more than anything in the iPhone or music player. If you have used this memory a lot, erased and copy many files over time, it may be a good idea to back up and reformat the memory using a low level format so it will take some time to really erase and format the memory. But if the damage sector is hardware or physical and not an error on the format you may need to live with it or replace it. Anyway check with another msdc device and verify if this is related to the particular msdc you are using.

Memory card corrupted , cant retrieve saved games


Try a "Reformat" or your memory card. here's how.
I recommend that you do this every so often regardless, and particularly when you first buy a memory stick. Reformat it, on the Sony PSP. So that anything added by the memory stick manufacturer is removed, along with any hidden files you might have accidentally added.
You can format any size Memory Stick Duo in the Sony PSP by doing this:
  1. Push the little HOME button on the bottom left of the face of the unit.
  2. Use the arrow keys to move to the SETTINGS area, then move the up and down keys until you get to System Settings.
  3. Once you are there, click on the "X" button and scroll up and down as needed to find Format Memory Stick. Click on "X" again to select that option.
  4. The Sony PSP will now confirm that you want to reformat the memory stick (which removes every file and game save thereon, of course): choose yes and it'll format in just a few seconds.
Now you have a pristine new Memory Stick to work with and should have no problems with music, photos or other material you might wish to copy onto your PSP.

save as sansa.fmt and change save as type, it should be All Files. it will create a file with 0 bytes.

you can now disconnect the usb and wait til the mp3 displays formatting.. it will reformat by itself.

Corrupt filenames on my Coby mp-c591 audio/visual mp3player


Reformatting will erase the music and picture files for sure - in some instances, it can also delete a player's native formatting, which requires a firmware upgrade to resolve. It looks like you've tried quite a few methods to re-add those files - have you tried the firmware upgrade yet from Coby's website?

FIle Format Not Supported


The Mp3's might have been on a specific music service - if you don't resync within a certain number of days, or your subscription expires, you will get the File Format error msg. Just resync your player or renew your subscription (or get a different music service).

You can check out the FAQ on the Philips website, just in case you want to try their suggestions for the error msg
www.usasupport.philips.com - just enter in your model number, select the one without the "B" at the end of it

Weird music files on my Sansa e250 media player


Reformat your Sansa via My Computer. Right click on your Sansa while in my computer, and then FORMAT. Please understand that this will delete ALL of your files. You will have to resync any pictures or music. I had to do this in MTP, AND MSC mode individually to get rid of those pesky items.
