Question about iRiver iFP-790 MP3 Player
Update the latest drivers and you should be ok.
Posted on Sep 25, 2009
IFP-790 is an iFP-700 series player.
The device has connection type UMS = Universal Mass Storage.
See next page:
and select Connection .
The problem is that the device can only connect when the computer is told to use the USB port using this connection type.
Sometimes UMC is also called MSC = Mass Storage Class.
The computer will see the device as a removable storage. Transfers of data can take place using Windows Explorer ( to the corresponding media map).
Opposite to previous connection type there is MTP = Media Transfer Protocol. The computer needs an extra software program like Windows
Media Player or Media Transfer Software from the players' manufacturer to make adequate transfers.
When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".
Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
