There is a firmware update for the iFP-100 Series of flash players - http://www.iriveramerica.com/support/iFP_100_support.as...
I don't know if that firmware update is later than yours, or even if it is,
whether it will solve your problem.
Have you called iRiver tech support 1-800-399-1799 with your problem? I've
found them quite helpful notwithstanding the long wait to get connected to
one of their techies. And at least they speak English.
