Does the firmware upgrade take a long time?
What happened was that I installed the manager.
Then I downloaded the firmware, which was IFP-7XX.HEX.
Is it the correct one for the IFP799?
Then I opened the file from with in the manager.
It told me that it was updating the firmware or something like that, and to please wait, but it gave me an OK button.
So I waited for a while and nothing happened.
Then I hit the OK button and waited for a while, but the unit never powered down.
What did I do wrong?
Could someone help please?
It's terrible to have a new tool or toy, and not to be able to use it!
Thanks in advance!

Subject: Iriver 799 documentation.


I need documentation for the 799 which I received yesterday but am not
permitted to use until my birthday on the 15th.    Documentation in
this case refers to any informative or instructive materials, not
strictly the company manual.

I want to learn to use this thing but had hard drive problems and no
longer have Shane's great instructions as well as other instructional
materials.  If persons on this list would forward relevant emails
about using this thing to:


I would be most grateful.  Also, what is the url for Shane's
informative podcast about the 799?  Thanks much.
