Um, oops.  Sorry.

Well, this page


claims it should function as a USB mass storage device, as you thought

Does it use SD cards, as the web site indicates?  It's trivial to use a USB
card reader.  I use a 512 MB SD card ($30 after rebate) and an $8 card
reader (MediaGear 8-in-4) with my Palm Tungsten T3 as my primary audio
player these days.

The Google group for Rave/ilo players
(http://groups-beta.google.com/group/ILO-MP3) has someone else asking about
Linux drivers, so it isn't apparently a solved question (contradicting Mr.
Stanley's comments in the other linked page).
