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
