The Rio 500 SourceForge Project Web Page http://rio500.sourceforge.net/

The Rio500 tools from SourceForge are the actual userland tools used to download, format or rename songs on players. When compiling these tools, the following pre-build configuration command will ensure that rio_usb.h is available in the include path and that the device used is /dev/urio0

 CFLAGS="-I/usr/include/dev/usb" ./configure \
     --with-devicepath='/dev' --with-deviceentry='urio0'
