    i cant use my iriver mp3 player on windows vista

  • dtinfl Apr 20, 2009

    Vista won't even recognize my IFP-899 on explorer. In Device Manager it says there is no driver for the device. I know it worked on the same Vista computer about a year ago. I can't find the drive anywhere, even in the iRiver website. What's up with that?

If you want to use the iFP 800 series with windows Vista or 7, upgrade the firmware (see link below) http://www.iriverinc.com/lounge/loungeView.asp?selectPart=02&findWord=&sno=832&page=1&cateCode=02 to UMS mode, which allows you to use Explorer to transfer your files to and from the IRiver. The only disadvantage that I know about is that your recording quality gets limited to 96kbps (from 128kbps). Other than that, it works perfectly.

    But how can you upgrade the firmware when the computer doesn't recognize the player???

  • rayvin54 Feb 18, 2011

    Just do it on a pc with XP--no shortage of those around (friend or family member, if you don't have one).

I can´t connect to my PC with my iRiver device (iFP-890) and Wi Vista 64 with SP1, not trough Music Manager or Explorer.
I´v followed the instructions above.

Look at : www.iriveramerica.com/vista/
This gives instructions - basically can't use WMP11.1
They say to set program to run on Windows XP w SP2

If this doesn't help
You can probably just drag & drop files directly from Explorer.
