Applications and Drivers


The pjb_applet project aims to develop a suite of GNOME programs to allow easy, straight forward access and control of the HanGo pjb100 Personal JukeBox.

PJB-100 USB driver for Linux 2.6

The Compaq Personal Jukebox PJB-100 USB driver for Linux 2.6 is a quick port of the Linux 2.4 driver.

PJB Manager Mode for Emacs

PJB Manager Mode for Emacs. This is a PJB100 manager mode written in elisp. This package makes the PJB (possibly) the first MP3 player which can be totally managed through emacs. It supports adding multiple tracks in one upload, renaming and reordering tracks, disc and sets and removing tracks.


The purpose of OpenPJB is to expand the development and support of the PJBSDK, first developed by Compaq Research, and released under GPL. The PJBSDK was originally created to provide a programmatic interface to the PJB-100 Personal Jukebox device.

Personal JukeBox Manager in GTK

The Personal JukeBox Manager manages the contents of the Personal Jukebox under Linux.


Pjmirror [archived link] is a software, written in Perl, which will synchronise your PJ-100 with your PC. It will not synchronise youre PC with the PJ-100 since this is not possible.


  • WikiPedia: "The Personal Jukebox (also known as PJB-100 and, to some extent Music Compressor) was the first ever hard disk MP3-Player to hit the market in late 1999, which makes it the great-grandfather of today's players like the Apple iPod. Production has since been discontinued, commercial distribution has also almost ceased. The original design was developed by Compaq Research (SRC and PAAD groups) starting in May 1998. Compaq did not release the player themselves, but licensed the design to HanGo Electronics Co., LTD. of South Korea."
