Question about iLO (2 GB) MP3 Player

1 Answer

Random Shut Off and On

I have had my ilo mp3 player for a very long time. it is the orange/white/black one that was one of the first 1gb players they made. it has worked wonderfully for the entire time i've owned it and i've absolutely loved it. about a month ago, it started shutting itself off after about 10 songs had been played, and then it would turn itself back on, read "searching song files" acrossed the screen, then start back at the beginning of the playlist. i did a system check, i defraged the volume, i've replaced batteries, everything but straight throwing the damn thing away. Any ideas on what could be happening?

Re: Random Shut Off and On

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.

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.
