Question about iRiver iFP-895 MP3 Player

1 Answer

IRiver freezes, then dies

Hello everybody, Recently, when I play an mp3 on my iRiver iFp 895 the music will stop playing, a high frequency 'squeal' happens, and then the iRiver shuts down. When I restart the iRiver, it has skipped to the next song. I initially thought this was an mp3 problem and that I had been downloading corrupted mp3s. But that can't be the case as it has recently started happening on mp3s that I used to play six months ago with no problems. It seems to happen randomly, too. Longer mp3s (DJ sets, audio lessons, etc.) are fine, but shorter songs conk out frequently I even tried formatting the iRiver. Still, this problem continues. Rob

I need the driver for iFP-895 MP3 Player


There are two types of driver managers for the iFP-800 series:
1. MSC version using iriver PLUS3
2. Manager version using iriver MUSIC MANAGER

Go to the support download site, see:
Next to the GO bar, type the word ifp and hit Enter or click on GO for the available downloads.

MSC version: select the download and next select your country from the list: IFP-890 (your country)

Manager version: select the download and next select your country from the list: IFP-890(your country)

When downloads are blocked, allow downloads in the top page of the internet explorer.
When the iriver site freezes or returns to its previous page, renew the page. Try again, going to the required download and wait some time before starting the download action.

For the download of iriver PLUS3, click on PLUS3 in the left column of the support page.
The iriver MUSIC MANAGER and MAC software should be on the disk that came with the player.

Computor doesn't recognize iriver iFP-895 mp3 player

What's your operating system?

These are the steps that helped me resolve a similar issue I had:

1) Find a computer with Windows XP (ServicePack2)
2) Intall iRiver Music Manager 3.16 from
3) Download the Firmware update for your player from to your Desktop
4) Start the Music Manager and connect your player to the computer. (The XP should recognize your player; and the Music Manager should show the "connected" status)
5) In the Music Manager, click on Tools => Upgrade Firmware, then select the file from your Desktop. NOTE: The upgrade process takes 4 -5 minutes.

After the firmware update, Windows Vista and other PC's should recognize your player.
