I have an iRiver H340 - I just mount it like any other USB file system. It has a 40GB drive formatted as vfat that I can copy files to or from no problems at all. I'd be surprised if theu10 was any differnet. Although, if your player has a database for searching by artist, genre, etc. it won't be updated by accessing it from Linux but that hasn't stopped me having music whenever I want it...

Cheers gilead,

I just found this thread:
misticriver.net/archive/index.php/t-29066.html
and seems there are others having dramas with T & U series.

I think i'll wait till I hear some success stories with the u10.

I had a look through that thread - and I see your point.

It's a pity because Linux was the reason I went to the ogg format for my music. It was the ogg format that got me to choose iRiver.
