---Iriver - Strange Behaviour

Can anyone help with solutions or explanations for any of the following

I have rockbox installed on an Iriver H340, using the latest daily build
dated July 29th.
Don't know because I don't have a 340. I have a H140 running rockbox. I
can offer the following advice though:
I have patched the firmware and in general, rockbox seems to work ok from
the start, speaking its menus, and speaking file and folder names as I've

It gets interesting though when I go to play an audio file.

After selecting the file, I press the upper of the two buttons on the left
hand side of the unit, which I have been told is the play key. Nothing
happens. Then, if I hit this key about three times, the file eventually
does play.
*Have you gone in and checked your settings under playbakc, show files, to
supported or music

Also, at times, the player seems to completely hang and will not turn on or
off for several minutes and in one case today, took well over an hour,
before it eventually came back to life.
**Again under general settings, playback turn resume to no

I would describe its behaviour as 'flaky' and am just wondering is there
something that maybe I'm doing wrong.

Note that this is the second build of Rockbox I have tried, the previous one
worked even more unsatisfactorily on the unit, and sighted people told me
that in many cases, the screen would fade off during playing of a track and
there was no further visual output.
*This is set by defult. If you hit a button the bakc light will come on
again. You can also reset your player using a safety pin. I don't know
where the reset whole is on the h340 (I think it's on the left side but not
sure). On the H140 it is on the bottom next to the USB port.

*Finally, Did you use the safely remove hardware option from the system tray
on your PC prior to removing the USB cable? Maybe try to reinstall rockbox
then safely disconnect, shut down the player and restart it then adjust the
settings accordinly.


After all my testing I'm beginning now to wonder might the unit be faulty.

Any thoughts?
