Here is a free AppleScript for copying songs one at a time. I don't know if the linebreaks will post correctly.

global myName
tell application "System Events" to set myName to the full name of the current user
display dialog "Enter the name of the iPod:" default answer "" & myName & "'s iPod"
set userName to the text returned of the result
if userName is not "" then
display dialog "Enter a partial or complete name of the file of the song:" default answer ""
set songName to the text returned of the result
if songName is not "" then
do shell script "find /Volumes/"" & userName & ""*" & "/iPod_Control/Music/*/*"" & songName & ""*"
set pathName to the result
do shell script "cp "" & pathName & "" ~/Desktop/"
end if
end if

Why doesn't anyone have one of those nifty commands for the RioRiot. I can't get my files off that damned thing.

I'll see if I can get ahold of one and look into it. If you know someone in the LA area that would like to donate one or let me borrow one for a while, I should be able to take care of it. Let me know.

If the Rio Riot is the same as other Rios (I'm not sure if it is), then it is not really treated as a disk at all. This would make hacking it like that difficult or impossible. Just because something is a USB peripheral doesn't mean you can use it like a disk - look at your mouse, keyboard, etc.

Does the Riot mount on your desktop as a volume? If so, then you may be in luck. Otherwise, it's gonna be tough.

the music is just a hidden folder. Look up view hidden files in google to find a dozen FREE ways to access these files.

I'm guess this just does a simple ln -s /Volumes/"iPod Name"/iPod_Control/Music /Volumes/"iPod Name"...

And he wants a $5 donation for something anyone can do in less than 30 seconds via Terminal.app...wow...
