Rome MP3 PlayerThis program allows you to communicate with the Rome UP-301 MP3 player under (probably) any *nix OS. It has been tested and is known to work under GNU/Linux.

Please note that this program ONLY supports the UP-301 model. It's the first released of the rome players that plugs into your parallel port. Further models (USB ones) are NOT supported, and will probably never be by this program, as I don't own any of them.

Many thanks to Dmitri Katchalov for his precious help during the development.

This program has been quickly released. It only offers minimal features in terms of interface and would need to be cleaned up, but I lack of time to do it right now. In clear, this is just what I needed. All instructions you should need are in the README file.


Any Posix compliant *nix system should be able to run this software. You'll need root rights to run it however, as it directly accesses your parallel port.
