This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Reformatting your ILO player will result in the deletion of all tracks and

The songs that you are syncing may not be in the right format for this particular Mp3 player. Where did you get the songs?
Q: What type of files can I play?
A: Mp3 and WMA files. DRM protected WMA files, such as those purchased from many online music services, must be copied to the player via Windows Media Player or the music management software compatible with your online music store.

The player does not support AAC file playback.
(i.e: iTunes will not work)

Ilo mp3 Player Model MP-556

I just got an ilo mp3 player and when I try to sync songs from Windows Media Player 11 to it, it only puts about 1/2 of the songs on it. It says it has plenty of memory, so what's the problem?

Ilo mp3 player

The may be a problem with your boot files stored on your MP3 player, try formatting which may fix this problem.

First you go to "Start" - "My Computer" - Now look for something called "Removable Disk" - That is your MP3 Player - Now right-click on it then click "Format" - Now allow format to complete and this should have fixed the problem.

Now you've formatted put some songs on, then unplug then try.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in someway.

Some music won't play

if the songs came from Limewire, they probably have hex code in the id3 tag comment lines - remove all of these tags

My ilo player is not responding well.

Take the battery out for at least 40 min. This resets the player. If not, call c/s 254-224-0222. they will email you the firmware to reinstall.

Ilo mp3 player issue

Your ilo should've come with a disc. That disc should install windows media for you. You can't put music onto it without windows media.

Incorrect Format Please Reformat the Player

I just repaired/reformatted my 1.0 GB Ilo following the instructions below with no problems:

  1. Please connect the player to a rear USB port on the computer. The display should show “USB Connected”. (If not, please press the power button.)
  2. Please make sure that all unused programs and applications are closed. You can close the applications by closing as many of the icons in the lower right hand corner (by the clock) as possible.
  3. Download the correct Firmware
    1. Click here to download the ILO 116 Firmware
  4. Click Open to initiate the download
  5. Double click on the ILO or Siren folder icon. There will be 14 icons.
  6. There will be a Setup icon that looks like a box with a blue line on it; please double click on this.
  7. Then click Run - this will open the Install Wizard.
  8. The Install Wizard has the instructions on the screen as you go through it.
  9. Once the firmware has installed, please click the Start menu, then Programs.
  10. Look for the icon that says ILO or Siren, and then double click the Firmware Update to install to the player. Depending on how severe the corruption to the firmware on the player is, you might have to do this step 2 or 3 times in order for it to completely repair the firmware.
It will now search for the ilo. This may take a while depending on how corrupted the firmware is, so be patient.

After it has found the ilo, it will say, "A device has been detected in recovery mode and is being initialized. Please wait."

The ilo should come back to life and start showing it's glorious "USB Connected" screen.

The "Firmware Update" window should appear. Select "Format Data Area" to rid the player of corrupted firmware data. And click "Start".

It can take anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes to re-flash the ilo and the program might appear to have locked up, but it hasn't. So don't close the program or disconnect the ilo!

If the program fails to find the ilo and gives you an error like, "Device Timeout" or something similar, you need to reinstall the ilo drivers. This can be done by inserting the ilo cable into a USB port it has never been plugged into before. Or you can reinstall the drivers by reinstalling the Rave-MP program. (Remove it, restart the computer, and then install it again).

Although, plugging it into a new USB port is the fastest and easiest option.

If your player won't even turn on, follow these instructions first and then those above:

First, remove the battery. While this isn't necessary to get the player into recovery mode, it insures the unit will not power on before the cable is inserted.

On the ilo, hold the "Power" button down while inserting the USB cable. Continue holding the power button down for 5 seconds more after the cable is inserted. The backlight on the ilo will remain off during this time, making the screen appear to be blank.

An hourglass should appear on your computer and Windows should say,

"Found new Hardware 'SMTP3500".
