Music player on linux to use with insignia pilot

I have an Insignia Pilot mp3 player that I want to be able to use with a music player on GNU/Linux so I don't have to struggle with drag and drop. I'm used to Rhythmbox but I found out just now that it isn't recognized. I have searched without luck and I don't have the time to keep going through the list to find a lighter weight music player that works with it.

If anyone has knowledge of any that works, please post.

Thank you in advance.

okay, nevermind. I used what I guess you could call a hack from a zen. what you do is add a blank text file titled ".is_audio_player" without quotes to the device and scan in rhythmbox
