Re: Wont Connect to the computer

I finally got a hold of the people at IRiver. They said that you can try a manual reformat if you have the right firmware update. Unfortunately, I do not so they said... "Sorry, there's nothing else we can do. Good luck with that."

If you want to try the reformat, push the Navi/Menu button to the left and hold it down until you get the General menu. At the bottom of that list is the format option. Just know that in formatting, you'll lose everything on the player. Once you've done that, you can try redoing it again. It should work. Good luck.

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.

Deleteing voice recording

If you can connect it to a PC with XP on it, and have an iRiver Music Manager; once your device is recognized, you will be able to manually manage files on your iRiver, including deleting any voice recordings on it.
