The download for the AK100 v2.01 firmware is
The file is about 34mb in size and is a zip file
Do you have a 34mb zip file that you downloaded with the firmware?
The firmware download page with information is at:
The direct download is
yes. about 34m
Did you extract the files from the zip file?
yes a did.
Do you have Iriver Plus installed on your computer?
Yes I do
You have two options to update one way is to use the Iriver software
and the second is to take the hex file that was downloaded
and place it on your iriver device
To do that you would connect the device to your computer
and go to my computer -> right click on the iriver device and select open
you would copy the hex file then to the folder that is now open
It is connected
Copy the hex file onto the iRiver in the main directory listing
Then disconnect the iriver from your pc
The pc not let me disconnecting
it might still be copying files
the file is 30+ megs and can take a little time to copy
I still cannot disconnect
what does it say when you attempt to disconnect?
The device 'Generic volume' cannot be stop right now
If thats the case then a program is currently accessing the device
make sure to close all programs that could be using the device
or transferring files etc
You have to wait for the device to become ready and can be disconnected if nothing is using the device
The steps to manually install the hex file are to copy it onto the iriver
Then disconnect the device from the pc
and it should auto install
if it doesnt reboot the iriver
The computer is not doing anything now but still could not disconnect
The iriver is disconnected and it is now upgradding the firmware
