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.
List the files and directories on the device. The root directory
is /. Directories are preceded with ’d’ and other files with
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 cp.)
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
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 directory.
rm [-r] file
Delete (recursively) a file (or directory) on the device.
Delete an empty directory on the device.
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.
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.
