Subject: iRiver H320
I was wondering if someone could tell me if I screwed up bad or if there is
a fix to my problem.
I have an iRiver H320 that /used/ to have the US firmware version 1.04. For
some reason, the Data USB port decided to stop working. When a USB cable is
connected, the iRiver displays Data Connection but the computer (XP SP 2)
does not recognize the unit. I also have an H340 which works fine with the
same USB cable and computer. The H320 used to work fine and then decided not
to work anymore. The Media USB port was still functional but the transfer
rate was painfully slow.
I thought I would upgrade the firmware to the 1.29 J version to see if that
would help. It did not help. In fact, it made things worse. Now, the H320
does not recognize the Media USB port and the Data USB port is still
non-functional (displaying Data Connection but not recognized by the
computer). I thought I would set the firmware back to the US version 1.04 if
the 1.29 did not work but I cannot connect to it to copy the file to the
The technical support at iRiver (which was neither "technical" or
"supportive") said that it is probably the hardware (hard drive) and that
the unit is probably no good. They can do nothing since it is outside the
warranty period on the unit.
Is there something that can be done to restore the unit to at least the US
version 1.04 or am I completely hosed? Is there someway of getting RockBox
on the unit or some special keypad combination I can use to completely
bypass the firmware?
Like the way Microsoft Office Outlook works? You’ll love Windows Live
