Default iRiver H340 - randomly fast forwards within a track

Hi,

I wonder if any one else has this problem or knows how to solve it? A few days ago my faithful H340 started randomly fast forwarding within a track, usually about every 3 or 4 songs and usually near the end of the track. It might lose about 20 seconds or so of the song and you can hear the white noise type 'scrambled' sound as it fast forwards. I should add that the songs play fine if played through the PC with the H340 plugged in as an external hard drive...so I know it's not a problem with the tracks or how they're ripped. Just when played back on the H340. I should also mention that when I next turn it on to play it selects different tracks to fast-forward through.

I thought it might be the battery or HDD (40b) so I swapped out both today with no problems, taking the opportunity to upgrade to an 80gb HDD.

Trouble is the problem hasn't gone away. Could one of the diodes be knackered...is it repairable / solvable? Any suggestions gratefully received as I'd hate to see it go in the bin after so many years good service. I should add that I'm running it on the European v1.30 firmware.

Many thanks, Justin
