    Thanks for your response however, I wasn't guite clear. The laptop I'm using now has never had the iriver software install on it. I know longer have my old laptop. Windows attemptes to install drivers & software but can't so it ask for the install disk. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thanks, Pete

If you plug it to your USB port and then go to my computer. Can you see your device connected?, If you do all you have to do is click on it when it opens check the folders and your music should be inside one of them, copy it to your computer and that should do it. same way to put music in to it copy it from your computer in to the device where it stores the music files.

I lost my installation cd to load songs onto my I River. Can I buy just the installation cd somewhere.

Go to the mfr.'s website; I'm fairly sure you can download a copy of the lost CD to your system and burn a new one locally.

Need install disk for ifp-890

no problem try this link it is the firmware for the device just make sure it works (compatible) with your new operating system there is options for drivers and firmware but as you can see it has evolved so match your model with firmware and operating system (version of Windows) you are using so it will work properly.
Download the correct driver, save it to your desktop and when you connect your device and you're asked to install driver click on browse and direct it to the file on your desktop, click next, continue or install and that will load the driver for the device.
firmware= software on mp3 device driver=software on computer
sometimes when you upgrade the firmware on device you can flash it>>> it means you can erase everything and make it unusable so be carefull
if it works don't forget to rate me
