I know how you feel!
You have to go in to the Iriver manager, go to the tools option, and click on the upgrade firmware option.
You'll get a brows option, and you could open the file from there.
If you get stuck, get back to me and I'll try to help some more!

Chris, I first installed the Iriver software.  In fact, I used it a
few times and found it could be done although it is a pain because one
has to use the Window Eyes mouse keys quite a bit.  I transferred a
few mp3s using this software into the player.

Next, I made certain that the player was turned on and the U S B cable
connected at both ends.  I then got the confirmatory gong  indicating
that windows xp saw the 799.  I then clicked on the ums file which is
a zip file which opened using Winzip revealing only one file in the
archive which is a .hex file.  When I attempted to click on that, the
only thing which happened was that it opened in Notepad.

So, just where is my problem, and, what shall I do to solve that

Hi Don

Have you atempted to update the firmware by using the software on the
that *hopefully* came with your iRiver?  If not, please install the
software, update the UMS firmware and then you can uninstall the
software.  You won't need it after that.  It does sound like you have
proper firmware version though.

Perhaps the problem I am about to outline is the same problem being
faced by Frank Lizard.

I suspect that I do not have the correct file to upgrade the ums
firmware.  The file name for the file I have is:

The archive contains only one file which is a hex file, and notepad
wants to open it.  So what I am saying is that there is no way this
file will update my firmware if notepad opens it.  So where do I find
the correct ums file for my 799?
