Kjo, I'm surprised that no one has replied so I'll give you my opinion/method. I keep my music in folders by Artist and album title. When I rip a new CD (with dbPoweramp) and want to transfer it to my player, I just connect the player via the usb port and it shows up as an external drive. Then I copy the music over via drag and drop. I assume that the Astell and Kern player has the same capability. Unless you listen via iRiver on the computer, there's no reason to involve it at all. Even if you do I wouldn't think you would have to wait for it to scan the music. Note that I'm not familiar with the workings of either iTunes or iRiver so there may be something I don't understand.
