Default intro and request for a patient mentor H340

Hi, - my request is to link up with a mentor who is knowledgeable with H340 and H120, but more importantly - has the patience to put up with and help guide me from A to Z - in getting my H340 and H120 back up and running
I can follow instructions - I can understand the principles of things and can take things apart - often successfully putting them back together - but I just have a blank when it comes to knowledge about computer systems - hardware V software V firmware etc..
My favourite -H340 recently started skipping tracks and only partially playing them - so - not really sure what I did but it kinda goes like
reformat - to clear disk
plug into computer (windows 7) it is recognised only if its open in boot loader ? versus actually switching on in iriver mod.
I put a music file back onto the iriver - drag n drop as normal - it play's the file via my computer when the H340 is plugged in
But - remove the H340 - power it up - go look for the music folder and the only thing is a folder with Japanese lingo - which will not open and the H340 then locks - needing to push the reset button to get it to switch off

now I've ordered a new drive - soon to arrive - but it's all black magic to me - this is where I need a kind and patient mentor to assist me through the process and get this great machine back running

my H120 is another story for later - basically wrong or reverse polarity charger installed = something fried - suspect in need of a few circuit board replacements - or a new circuit board ?
fingers crossed you can help
cheers

ok H340 is sorted - thanks to subscribers in the post I river HD 340 replaced drive not working
using FAT32formatter - changed from a NTFS to FAT32
so I must have accidentally converted it to NTFS when I previously formatted the drive using windows
no idea what this means but suspect it is like a language compatibility thing ? - anyway it works
thanks

Hi Norman,

Good to see you've got it going. I'm not sure about the later versions but windows never used to be able to format drives above 32Gb as a FAT32 file system and the iriver only recognizes Fat32's.
In regards to your first post

You will have damaged charging circuit. If you or someone you know can do SMD soldering you can probably repair it. Here's a couple of links which may be of use to you.
The repair of fried players may be possible thread from the old misticriver forums http://web.archive.org/web/200807250...-possible.html
The schematics for your player http://fvd.ru/?go=drivers&folder=iRi...ram\H%20series you may have to right click and "copy link location , then paste it into your address bar if the page wont open.
and the rockbox page of the components http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/IriverHardwareComponents

Hopefully something there might help you, best of luck.

thanks - ill look into this as another project - although the repair maybe outwith my ability - I can source someone to do this for me - or alternatively look for a 2nd hand circuit board
