Annoying Memory Problem

When I turn on my ILO mp3 player, it searches the files for a second, then says that I need to have at least 3mb of memory unused for system usage and turns off.


I checked the memory, and it has around 47mb unused. I deleted all the files and it still said the same thing. I tried deleting the driver, but then I couldn't reinstall it. I have no idea what to do. I've defragmented it and did everything I could.


Yesterday, it worked once when I turned it on, but after not using it for a few minutes, it turned off, and won't work anymore. I've been having this problem for about 3 days now. I'd really appreciate help.

Re: Annoying Memory Problem

Well... I got a 80 gig iPod last Christmas, so it kinda replaced the thing. I just threw it away cus I figured I'd never be able to fix it. ...besides, it kinda sucked.

But thanks anyway lol.

Re: Annoying Memory Problem

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.

Ilo mp3 player and memory/files

You need to run chkdsk on the player. Plug it into your computer using the usb cord. Go to Start, Run, and type in chkdsk f: (or whatever drive your ilo shows up as). You'll get an option to repair the corrupted files. This worked for my ilo which had the same problem.
