Question about iRiver iFP-799 MP3 Player

Open Question

MP3 player won't play whole song.

I've had my MP3 player for almost a year now, and it constantly resets itself without finishing an entire song. Sometimes it will play 10 songs and reset, sometimes it won't even finish one song! It will make this weird buzzing noise for about 5 seconds, shut off, turn itself back on, and play the song after the one I had been listening to. I tried formatting the mp3 player and re-adding the songs, I tried replacing the battery. I really don't know what to do now. If anyone can please help, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Neko-Chan,


    I hope you have been able to solve your problem.  Just wanted to let you know that I have 4 different IFP's and have used them for many years and never had this happen to me. Have you tried upgrading to a newer version of firmware? Does this happen when the player is is being moved/shaken (walking, driving, etc) or when in rest (e.g. on the table).


    Regards,


    Robert Ilbrink

SOURCE: formatting and error codes

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

SOURCE: I try to delete songs on my I river but they never go away?!?!?

go to your music sourse on the computer and delete it from there, then make sure the file is out of your computer completely by deleting the raw file. next plug your iRiver into the computer and syncronize it to you music source, the song or songs should have been deleted. I used to have an iriver but got an hour glass that never ended when I turned it on, i fixed it but then it happened again so i got fet up with iriver and gave in and went and bought an iPod

SOURCE: iRiver X20 scrambled sound on every song

i've recentlly had the same thing but mine fixes itself immediately after scrambling for 2 secs...
in your case though, if its just 1 song it could be the song codec. if otherwise then either try differnet headphones or maybe open it up and see if the headphone interface still works.

Real player library not refreshing..closing itself after 64%


After hearing one artist played over and over during a shuffled play of your entire music library in iTunes you may think your player has a preference of its own. Apple claims the iTunes' shuffle algorithm is completely random.1 The shuffle algorithm chooses songs "without replacement." In other words, much like going through a shuffled deck of cards, you will hear each song only once until you have heard them all... or until you have stopped the player or selected a different playlist.
iTunes Party Shuffle2 is a different matter. Its algorithm selects songs "with replacement," meaning the entire deck of cards is reshuffled after each song is played. The play higher rated songs more often option does exactly what it says, but how much preference is given to higher rated songs?
To test the option's preference for 5-stars, I created a short playlist of six songs: one from each different star rating and a song left un-rated. The songs were from the same genre and artist and were changed to be only one second in duration. After resetting the play count to zero, I hit play and left my desk for the weekend. To satisfy a little more curiosity, I ran the same songs once more on a different weekend without selecting the option to play higher rated songs more often. Monday morning the play counts were as shown in Table 1.

Plays about 10 seconds of A song and then wont finish playing the song how do you reset it?


I have a sylvania SMP4049 model mp3 player. I was experiencing the same problem with my own mp3 player last night. I managed to fix the problem by pressing the m button again and again, then scrolling down to normal and hitting centre button on my mp3 player. After that, the songs played all the way. Hope this helps!

MP3 player refuses to remove deleted songs


Don't know why it doubled loaded them but I noticed the reset on the side and thought it was worth a try. Hit reset and it cleared all the songs from the list that I had deleted.

Keeps restting itself


Firstly, try "re-setting" the Z5 (ie micro switch) first. If this doesn't resolve, then firstly save a backup of all your files...then use the 'format' function (ie open My Computer, then open the YP-Z5 folder, then look for the Format function), which will clean out your entire memory, including hidden files. Then download the latest firmware update from Samsung website (download centre/mp3) and save newest firmware onto your Z5. Always update your Z5 with latest firmware (appropriate with your Windows OS). Good luck.
