Win XP..I RIVER IFP-790

Hello,When I connect the IRIVER its not detected as an external device.
When connected its asks for the required software to be installed,music software and drivers.When installed it work ok.It just takes ages to use.My other MP3 player required no software and was plug and play.I use FREE RIP to convert my music.I hoping to use the IRIVER in the same way,but no such luck.Any ideas???.Cheers,Mike

If it's an iRiver H10 model like mine there's a trick to make it recognise as a removable USB drive. Unplug the player from the computer and remove the battery. Push the battery back in then connect the player to the computer. Hold down the o button then turn the player on. Keep the o button held down till it says "Emergency Connect" in the top right corner of the screen and release the button. It should then get recognised as a removable USB drive by the PC and you can just drag and drop files onto it. This might also work on other models, but I have only tried it on the H10 model.

I was given an mp3 last year, but have used WMP10 to put my music onto it. The software that came with it, never worked.
WMP10 sees it as an "F" drive, and is easier to use. Try it.
