If what Mpiper recommended still doesn't work, try removing the battery for a few seconds. This resets the unit. Then follow mpiper's steps for connecting in the UMS mode.

Try plugging it in to the computer first while the device is off. Then, hold the O key and press the power button. Worked for me.

Where can I get the driver and music manager for my IFP-799 ?


Hello,
iRiver IFP-799 is a IFP-700 series player.

Making transfers to the device can be done in either UMS or Manager mode.
UMS firmware matches with seeing the player as a removable disk in Windows Explorer and is also used for updating firmware, using iRiver PLUS software.
Manager firmware matches with iRiver Music Manager software.

When needing the Music Manager go to next site and enter the word
manager in the second column next to GO:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/index.asp?code=0302
iriver music manager ( Ver. 3.21 ) shows up: click the item and read
the instructions for download and installation.

How to update the player's firmware
in MSC mode:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/popup/flash_pop.asp?board=faq&code=47
in Manager mode:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/popup/flash_pop.asp?board=faq&code=252

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

I River for Mac


I have an iRiver H10 5gb. In order to use it with the Mac, I have to connect it while in UMS mode. This basically turns the unit into an external drive.

To do this you need to first remove your battery to reset the unit.
While the unit is off, connect it to your computer. Hold down the 'o' key while turning the unit on. Holding both buttons down until you see "USB Busy Do not disconnect". Now you can release the buttons, you are in UMS mode. Now just drag and drop your files onto the player.

If you don't mind not being able to use some of the iRiver features, once you drag and drop the music files, you disconnect in the usual way and then play your music files from the browser on your iRiver.

(Unless you add the files using Window Media player or iRiver's Music Manager, you won't be able to access the files in any other way. )

Here are some of the programs/software/firmware that are supposed to help load files from the Mac onto the iRiver. One that most people seem to like is called the easyH10. I have also come across info to sync with iTunes. I have tried these, but because I am in UMS mode, they haven't worked.

Go to these websites and check it out.

Every time I turn on my iriver h10 it freezes on the artists and won't go anywhere. How do I fix this ? resetting doesn't help


not sure what's wrong but try this..

hook up your h10 via the ums trick...
The UMS trick is a great thing to know how to do. With it, you can transfer music, or treat your H10 as a harddrive to put anything you want on.
The UMS trick will also allow you to use your H10 with virtually any OS.
For 5/6 GB MTP Models
  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Take out the battery, wait a second, and put the battery back in.
  • Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way).
  • Plug the H10 into your computer.
  • Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button.
  • You will see the message "UMS Mode" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
For 20 GB MTP Models
  • Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer.
  • Poke the "reset" button with a paperclip.
  • Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way).
  • Plug the H10 into your computer.
  • Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button.
  • You will see the message "Emergency Connection" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button.
For UMS Models UMS models do not need this trick because they are always in UMS mode!

download and run the free playlist maker software called EASYh10. It will scan the music files on the h10 music folder and save a new playlist to your player.

Iriver h10 20gb not recognized in UMS


I sometimes have to reset my iRiver in order for my Mac to see it. I have an h10 5gb, to do this, I have to remove the battery then reconnect the battery. Then I connect it the usual way to get into the UMS mode. But I think with yours it has it's own reset button. If it was working and now has stopped, I would think you just need to reset it and try again.

4.6GB Iriver H10 Merory says 2.9GB remaining but there is nothing on the player.


Considered formatting disk?
For you what this would mean is just a complete refresh of the device (you will lose everything).

You will need to read everything carefully.

http://www.misticriver.net/boards/showthread.php?t=14853

I converted my H10 to the "UMS" mode mentioned in the site a long time back (so I could directly transfer files as a USB mass storage device) and had the issue mentioned in that post. Works great. Converting to UMS mode is done here http://www.misticriver.net/wiki/index.php/H10_Firmware_Conversion:_MTP/UMS

You will also need the iRiver Plus software that you can download for free here http://www.iriver.com.au/iriver/index.cfm?pageID=10001&

IRIVER PLUS 3 MEDIA TRANSFER SCREEN


My understanding, as a new user, is that IRiver plus 3 only communicates with the player via UMS mode, which is not the default. Windows Explorer and Windows Media Player only communicate through MTP mode. If you change from MTP (the default) to UMS, it will reformat the player and delete all your files.

In other words, do not use iriver plus 3 unless that is the only software that you want to use. Boing back to MTP mode after a sync or download will then delete all THOSE files you just downloaded.

I just say NO to Plus 3.

Good luck.
