Yep, I don't think that a request to send a simple .zip file of an UMS firmware is really all that difficult or big of a deal. Maybe if Darcy and Holly ever get their iRiver tips and manual page going, i'm hoping they can make the UMS firmware for he IFP models a little easier to find, and provide instructions of upgrading the players to go along with it. This way, when someone else gets one of these they can just go to the site, follow the instructions, download the right stuff and they'll be good to go!

Hi Don. It seems to me that if you want them to email you a file, you should be able to get the file, and not a link to a list of files. This sounds ridiculous!

After talking with tech support from Iriver America a few moments ago,
they indicate there are separate ums files for the 899 and the 799.
They said they would email the file to me.  In fact, what they did was
to send an email containing a link which supposedly takes me to the
page which contains the various ums files.

Believe me, this page is a real pain to navigate.  I will phone them
back and see if I can get them to actually email me the correct file.

Incidentally, the IFP8XXT.hex file was transferred to my 799 when I
attempted the upgrade.  But the 799 never did shut down after that.
In fact, I had to go to safely remove hardware to disconnect it.  I am
truly frustrated at this point; although, fortunately the transfer
software which came on the cd is still working.  Incidentally, there
is also supposed to be a "format button" on that file software.  But I
cannot find it either with Window Eyes or JFW.
