Need help with rio500 driver

I cannot get any of the rio drivers i have tried for linux to detect my Rio Cali 256MB. I have tried using both rio500 and rioutil. when i try to use rio500 i get this message

Could not open /dev/usb/rio500
Verify that the rio module is loaded and your Rio is
connected and powered up.

and i read that riountil doesnt work with a rio500 player which i think mine is because when i check /dev/usb there is a rio500 file.

What happens if you treat that thing as a removable disk? In other words, try to copy a file to it?

Your file has white space in it. You need to enclose it in quotes or rename the file.

Try "/home/ohler/Documents/Shared/Aerosmith - Dream On.mp3"
instead of /home/ohler/Documents/Shared/Aerosmith - Dream On.mp3

RioUtil was looking for a file named /home/ohler/Documents/Shared/Aerosmith.
