Would this link only be for the IFP800 series?
Or could this be used for the 799 as well.

I have the iRiver 899, here's a section of emails that I sent, and got a
reply to a few months ago.

Hello, Michael,

I just spent nearly an hour searching for the iRiver webpage for UMS
firmware update and could not find it.  I originally received the URL
from
iRiver technical support.  Their phone number is
1-800-399-1799
Monday thru Friday 8:00 to 5:00 Pacific time.
Be ready for very long wait times, like nearly an hour for the two
times I
called.  Sorry I can't direct you right to the correct webpage.
Jeff

I managed to get the link too, here it is.

The UMS works great for that model, I have one, and use it with no problems.

I have a few questions about the Iriver 799 and 899. My friend is
thinking of buying one because of all of my drooling. I want to know
some answers to a few questions so I can relay them to him. He bought
one last night and then found out that the iriver DOES NOT record
directly to mp3. You have to use their program to convert recordings
to

MP3. He said the UMS thing only works on earlier models. Apparently,
they don't want to get into trouble so they make the recordings in
.REC

format instead of mp3. Is this true, and if so is there a hack that we

can apply to make the UMS Driver work and allow us to record in mp3
format?

Thanks,
Byron
