Cant play back tracks no data

Did you add songs to it yet? To add songs to it plug it in the your computer and import the songs to it. If it still won`t work rebuild your data base. Doing so well factory reset your Walkman and fix any bugs in your Walkman.

I can download music on my mp3 but when i go to play it it says its empty

Ilo player must be synchronized, coping and pasting files is not enough:

  1. Start Windows Media Player and select following menus: "File.", then choose "Add to Library." then the "Add" button. Then, look for the folder where your keep the mp3s to upload.
  2. Plug the Ilo MP3 player into USB.
  3. Click the "Sync" tab that you find at the top of Windows Media Player . You will find the Ilo MP3 player on the right side of Windows Media Player. If Ilo is not ther, then right-click on Sync tab and click "Refresh Devices."
  4. Click "Library" then "Songs." on Windows Media Player . Highlight the son songs, and choose "Add to Sync List."
  5. Click "Start Sync" button that will appear at the bottom right corner of Windows Media Player. The songs will then be uploaded to the Ilo MP3 player.

get the vista-compatible software, and make sure the songs are in mp3 format - wma is too problematic, and switching from an xp to a vista computer causes auto-reformatting/db corruption

New player

Insert old player, double-click my computer, create new folder called "Temp Song Storage", and start dragging music files from old player to new folder. Disconnect old player, connect new player - use Windows Media Player to move songs from Temp Song Storage folder to device.

Mp3 player won't play

your ILO has somehow lost its file structure. look for a tiny pinhole to reset the device. if none, then remove batteries to attempt reset. if still no songs, then firmware upgrade if possible or copy file structure (using windows) from a friend's ILO.

My Ilo 1GB Player isn't playing songs correctly...

The songs are in the wrong format

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Song Names show up incorrectly on ILO Mp3 player. Wrong format?

The funny~.mp3 names are usually because the title field is not filled in in the mp3 property tags, so it uses the DOS version of the filename for the title. Under windows, right click the song and select properties->summary->advanced, and make sure that the title field under "description" has what you want in it. I don't think even the makers of Ilo know how it organizes the files.

Unwanted songs added to play list

You might want to try these suggestions: 1. In folders options, click on the box that will show all hidden files. 2. Be sure to copy the MP3 songs unto a Temp folder that you create only for these MP3's 3. Stop all background running programs, like spyware, anti-virus, firewalls etc. Be sure you are not connected to the Internet (DSL). 4. After all of the above has been accomplished, go ahead and do a Copy and Paste of your MP3 from that newly created Temp folder to your iLo MP3 player. I hope this helps. Restart your computer to get all background running programs running again.
