Very cool. If you mount it like a regular mass storage device, can it play the mp3s you cp there or does it need some kind of signature like the Phatboxes do?

There’s a hacking thread in the S50 forum with more details

You can read and write to it like any usb drive.

But it doesn’t index the songs you insert so they aren’t playable.

You need to use the included PC software to get the indexes updated.
