rio - program to control a Diamond RIO MP3 player
rio [options] files ...
This manual page documents briefly the rio command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
rio is a CLI controller for a Diamond Rio MP3 file player.
The default ioport is 0x378. If this is not the ioport for your printer port, you will have to use the -p option.
Initialization should only be performed on new or corrupt cards. You can initialize with bad block checking enabled (-iy) which will test all blocks on the internal or external flash ram (which ever is selected) and note all bad blocks. This process will take some time (upto 20 minutes on slow machines). You can also initialize with bad block checking disabled (-in) which is much quicker but all blocks (even bad blocks) will be used.
If you want to delete all files on the device, the (-za) option should be used instead of using the initialization options mentioned above.
A summary of options are included below.
