ifp - access iRiver iFP audio devices


ifp command [arguments ...]


ifp lets you manage your music on an iRiver iFP music player acting in "Manager Mode". If
your player is using "UMS Mode", then you don't need this program; it will appear as new
drive when you plug it in.

This manual page documents the version of ifp included as an example application for the
libifp library. The interface is intended to mimic the ifp binary found in the ifp-line
binary package.

ifp can upload or download files or directories, delete or make directories on the device,
format the device, or upgrade your firmware.


ls [directory]
List the files and directories on the device. The root directory is /. Directories
are preceded with 'd' and other files with 'f'.

df Display total and free space on the device.

upload localfile remotefile
Copy the file named localfile to the iFP device, and name it remotefile. (This is
like cp.)

upload localfile remotedir
Copy the file named localfile to the iFP device, into remotedir. (This is like

upload localdir remotedir
Copy the entire directory localdir to the device, into remotedir. This copies into
a subdirectory, so upload foo / puts files from the directory foo info /foo on the
device. (This is like cp -R.) This uploads the entire directory, not just audio

put localfile | localdir
Upload the file or directory to the device, with the same name it has locally. If a
directory is given, it is put in /.

download remotefile localfile

download remotefile localdir

download remotedir localdir
Like upload, but copies from the iFP device to your system. Some proprietary file
types may not be downloaded.

get remotefile | remotedir
Like put, but copies files or directories from the device to your current working

rm [-r] file
Delete (recursively) a file (or directory) on the device.

rmdir dir
Delete an empty directory on the device.

mkdir dir
Create a directory on the device.

Display battery status of the device.

Display the model number of the device.

Display the firmware revision currently on the device.

format Reformat the device's memory. This will delete all your music.

firmupdate FIRMWARE.HEX
Upload the file FIRMWARE.HEX as new firmware for the device. This will not delete
your music, but may have many other detrimental effects. Don't turn the device off
or unplug it while the firmware is updating, and don't attempt to upload new
firmware with a low battery.
