I'm pretty sure this device works as USB storage; other similar
products made by the same vendor do.

Just bought that very MP3 player yesterday, this problem is
reproducible for me as well.

Though it appears it is a firmware issue with the IRiver device itself.

Out oof the box, it does not support the usb-storage mechanism in
Linux, or Windows I might add.  This can be cured by updating the
devices firmware to a version that supports UMS, the firmware can be
downloaded here:

You can either update the firmware using the Windows software that was
included with the unit, or you can do as I did, and use ipf-line to
install the new firmware.  The ipf-line tool can be found here:


After downloading the UMS firmware into the IRiver device, it works
with both the Linux and Windows usb-storage subsystem.
