Re: IFP-395T (AA Batteries)

Probably a hardware issue, but the issue could also be with your USB port - make sure that there are no yellow exclamations next to the usb port in the PC device manager.

The battery indicator might not be stable during the following activities because they use large amounts of power:

1. The backlight of the LCD
2. Volume change
3. Pressing function keys and buttons
4. Reading the CD or files (Loading data to the memory)

The battery indicator shows the life expectancy of the battery based on current power usage. During these high power usage activities, that may only last a few seconds, the indicator will obviously show a lower level on the battery indicator. Once the high power activity has ended it will show a more accurate battery level.

Sony Walkman D-EJ100 Personal CD Player: eats batteries even when not in use. I listened to a CD for 20 minutes, stopped, and a pair of new AA batteries were dead 4 days later. Is there a way to shut

Probably suffered damp ingress while in storage, and thus some conductive internal corrosion; use a test meter to see if there's any leakage when it's switched off and take it from there...
Either that or use AA Nimh rechargeable batteries

340 battery/charge

Doesn't this player use a normal AA battery? If not, and it has a rechargeable battery built in then there are 2 possibilities. One, the cheap battery you got from China is no good. I always wonder how they can sell batteries for under $10 and ship all the way from China for free. I suspect it's because they are pretty crappy batteries. two, your player has a short in it somewhere that is draining the battery. i have an iPod that does that. I fully charge it and turn it off. Next morning it's dead again and i've replaced the battery numerous times.

Hi, i have a iRiver iFP-790, i was wondering, how do i charge this device?

This device has an AA battery that you must replace. Slide open the bottom red part, and swap the battery for a charged one.
You can use rechargeable batteries (available at any supermarket) and a battery charger (available at most supermarkets, otherwise look for it in electronics stores)
I don't think there is a possibility to recharge the device using the usb port.

Lost software


question: from your iriver mp3 have you already format it or the files are still inside?

if your reffering old files as files you've accidentally delete from your player. the only way to retrieve the said files is by using a software "filescav" or filescavenger. this software can only retreive files from any removable device if the said device haven't been formated.

but if you only want to get the present files installed in your iriver, i do think that once you connect your iriver to a PC. the PC will search for a newly installed drive which is your player. and once detected you can open the folder of the newly found device and simply copy and paste all the documents and files you want to copy from your mp3 to PC.

note: you can download filescavenger from web free. just type in google bar " filescavenger" and it will show all the possible download site for the said software
