I find the following works for me: With the device switched off, hold
the REC button, and plug the USB cable in (you are pluggin into the
USB 2.0 Device port, right?). This boots into the iriver firmware and
starts charging. Mine's doing it right now, in fact.
As for other power supplies, you needn't get a 'proper' iriver pack,
you can get anything which supplies 5-6 volts that fits - just make
sure you get the polarity right or you'll end up with a brick! Or yet
another option is to hack a USB cable to go plug in to the device's
power socket rather than USB socket - you can prolly get this on ebay
too, or even one which splits a USB cable into a mini plug and DC
Having said that, I _have_ had success with rockbox charging over USB
- you just need to make sure you have the right build.

Subject: USB charge does not work at all on H340
I am now finding that USB charging won't work at all. When not too
low on battery, the H340 goes into the iriver firmware but attempts to
"connect" rather than charge... there is no way i can see how to force
it to go into charge mode when on USB. I know there is an option in
iriver firmware to set USB charging - and that is ON at the moment.
Does anyone know of any other issues with the iriver firmware or what
may be making my player fail to go into charge mode on USB?
I am finding it ratehr annoying that I can no longer charge this
device via USB because I want to be able to charge it at other
locations where I don't have the power supply handy. I could buy
another power supply (I have seen them on ebay), but I want to be able
to USB charge this device.
Thanks for any suggestions.
