Subject: Hard drive in H340 gone?

Hard drive in H340 gone?

From: Eric Schreiber <>
Date: Sun, 14 May 2006 21:37:48 +0200

Hi all,

today I copied some files over to an XP-Machine and the USB-connection to
my H340 locked up. I had to pull it out... Usually I don't use
Windows... I should have known better :-(
Now the player seems to be screwed. When booting Rockbox it comes up
just fine but going through directories it needs a lot of time and the
hard drive makes noises as doing lots of retries/rereads.
IRiver firmware comes up with 0 files/0 directories and chinese
characters in the display.

root_at_xabbu:/etc# dosfsck -v /dev/sdb1
dosfsck 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
dosfsck 2.11, 12 Mar 2005, FAT32, LFN
Checking we can access the last sector of the filesystem
There are differences between boot sector and its backup.
Differences: (offset:original/backup)
1) Copy original to backup
2) Copy backup to original
3) No action
? 3
Boot sector contents:
System ID "MSWIN4.1"
Media byte 0xf8 (hard disk)
       512 bytes per logical sector
     32768 bytes per cluster
        32 reserved sectors
First FAT starts at byte 16384 (sector 32)
         2 FATs, 32 bit entries
   4881920 bytes per FAT (= 9535 sectors)
Root directory start at cluster 2 (arbitrary size)
Data area starts at byte 9780224 (sector 19102)
   1220389 data clusters (39989706752 bytes)
63 sectors/track, 255 heads
        63 hidden sectors
  78124032 sectors total
Read 32 bytes at 12432522240:Input/output error

The last line gives me a hard time. Is my hard drive dying...?

Does anybody have any idea what's going on?

Thanks in advance
