I have one of the iRiver H340 HDD-based players, that certainly does
show up as a mass-storage device. (Blatant plug:

other iRiver owners with similar hardware). Linux was claimed not to be
compatible either.

However, I think you probably want this:


Looks like iRiver offer 'USB mass storage' firmware for some of the
flash models, so assuming you had one of the right devices, you could
flash it so it *did* work as a generic device.
