Support for the iRiver IFP-899 is on next site:

MANAGER connection type
In the second column next to GO, enter the word manager or select POPULAR KEYWORD.
On the page right side a list shows up.
Select the iriver music manager to see the information how to download and install the software. The manager for the computer matches the manager firmware in the player.

IFP-899 I River not coming on

Steve, Mine did this and I was able to get it working again by taking out the 3 tiny screws holding the case together. In my case, I had tiny grains of sand from the beach, which were probably had salt on them and were probably drawing moisture to the board and shorting components. I brushed it off carefully with a paint brush, blew it out as best I could, and generally cleaned the parts. Eventually, it came back to life! and continues to play today. Good luck with yours!

My iRiver e200 does hang...and it displays "USB busy.. Do not Disconnect if I connect it to PC. And I cannot play my MP3s

Hi there! Well it sounds like the flash memory in your device has failed. This may not be the case. There is no way to say without testing and diagnostics, however if you can not access the files saved to the memory via the device(Playing the files) and the computer can not access that memory when connected, there is a strong possibility that your memory has failed. I am not sure the age of the device but it is well documented that all flash memory will at some point fail because it can only be read and re/written X amount of times(this is normal). Typically most devices will reach "EOL"(End Of Life), or end of use before the memory fails. The likely hood of recovering the files located within the inaccessible memory is very unlikely but may be possible. Replacing the memory chip in the device is possible but not feasible. I hope I have been able to help you today. Please if I misunderstood your question let me know so I can get you the appropriate help. Thank's Mr.Mike
