Re: Drivers for Iriver 790-890?

Greg's suggestion to keep an old XP laptop around got me thinking ... which version of Windows 7 are you using? If you have Win 7 Professional or Enterprise, a fully licensed virtual machine installation of Win XP is part of the package, no separate physical computer required. You need to download the installation files from the MS website but installing the virtual PC on your Win 7 machine would let you run those drivers within it. The data files created or edited in the VM are accessible to the Win 7 side of the partition. Alas, if you have the Win 7 home versions the Virtual PC utility isn't available for it.
Good news, Cousins! This week's chocolate ration is 15 grams!

Re: Drivers for Iriver 790-890?

I get what you're saying about the irivers but I beg to differ. I own 2 Tascam DSR-100 MII's, but I honestly still prefer my irivers. Although I now use them mainly as backup. But often times in post I wind up using the audio from the iriver. I've used them long enough to know how to set my levels and then slide the lock switch and forget it. The irivers have saved me many times as I mainly record dialogue. I think it's one the best devices ever made, even though they weren't made for this purpose per say.

Re: Drivers for Iriver 790-890?

Thank you very much Greg Miller for recommending
Sony ICD-SX700 (internal RAM only)
Tascam DR-03 (micro SDHC).
Tascam DR-07 and
Alesis PalmTrack (SDHC machines)

All of which seem very suitable as recorders. I generally use my iFPs for listening to music and only a couple of times for really good audio (it seemed to me). I still use my iFPs (I have two, the displays slowly go) which I access with old XP machines that I have lying around.

If one has Windows 7 Home Premium (as I do) then XP mode is not available but apparently one can install a virtual machine
Create an XP Mode for Windows 7 Home Versions & Vista
if one has a spare copy of XP. I did this and failed to access my player but I read that if one goes "to Control Panel->settings->hardware->device manager->usb and load the drive (automatically)" then the virtual XP will see the player.
