Thanks for looking Carl; all of the links above are for the RaveMP 2100,
which is a _way_ old mp3 player that uses a parallel port (!)
connection, not USB.

I can easily imagine that a parallel port connection would utilize
proprietary protocols since there aren't any standard ones.  I'd be more
surprised for these new, USB-based devices to require proprietary

Did you find anything newer, related to the new Rave MP 128/256/512
sport mp3 players?  I couldn't find anything.  I'm going to ask on the
linux-usb-users mailing list to see if they have any ideas.
