I had bought a MuVo by Creative Labs
When I plug it in through USB In either Linux (i have used PCLinux OS & Open
Suse 10.2) or the evil nameless imperial OS The Box sees it as a USB drive
and I just drag and drop my music till it is full
it plays just fine most my stuff I tried in it was either mp3 wma
my muvo was not too expensive I think I paid less then $40
it is hard to find now it don't play movies and stuff so kids don't buy it
the one I got has an FM radio in it not bad except deep inside a few
building and on elevators at UTSA
hope this helps Peter Holland
