This project encourages open source driver development for iRiver's iFP portable music players. Ifp-driver was started by Pavel Kriz with ifp-line, a command-line program and the first Free iFP driver. Today, the ifp-driver mailing list is a hub of discussion for iFP driver development: participants include everyone from authors of spin-off projects, to prospective owners/users.
Ifp-driver home projects:
Unless otherwise noted, projects support all iRiver iFP devices. Users have reported successfully accessing models iFP-1xx,3xx,5xx,7xx,8xx,9xx and N10. We don't anticipate difficulty supporting future models.
(Note: iRiver offers 'UMS' firmware for some iFP models. Devices running UMS firmware are compatible with generic USB Mass Storage drivers, and do not need any of the drivers mentioned here.)
