Question about iLO (2 GB) MP3 Player

1 Answer

Ilo dies when you connect to pc

I have 2 gig ilo that worked originally and has been hooked up 2 times to 2 different pcs to retrieve music. I was trying to set up on a old me machine and every time you connect device to machine it just turns its self off. I come back to laptop that was originally working xp machine and it just dies when i hook up to usb port. I know that different types of operating systems shouldnt matter but it worked with xp and it wouldn't work with an old win me machine and now it won't work with xp but it plays the songs that are already on there. I also replaced battery just going through process of elimination, so any suggestions??

It behaves differently when plugged into a PC depending on whether it is switched on or off.

If switched on it will charge the battery. You need to have it switched off when you plug it in to transfer files. It doesn't charge when plugged in switch off though so that's something to watch.

Connecting my ilo mp3?


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.

Won't read music


Check and make sure that the format you are trying to play is compatible with the player. For instance, iTunes files won't work with this player.

Also, you could be trying to load DRM-protected files from a service like Bearshare. Yuur screen will tell you the files are transferring, but they are really not transferring b/c they have DRM protection. There is not currently a free way that I know of to remove this DRM-encryption, although you can probably buy download rights from your music service.

Unfortunately, the ILo site is down, so their is no way to get a firmware upgrade in case this model is another victim of the Windows Media Player upgrade - WMP 11 messed up a lot of mp3 players regardless of manufacturer.

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

Adding SD card to my ILO


What, you actually hotwired a flash card into the Ilo? Impressive. Or are you trying to get the Ilo to play music from an SD card, when you have both plugged into the computer? If you're talking about the first, then I'd say you did a good job at NOT destroying your Ilo. If its the second, then unplug your Ilo, put your headphones into the headphones jack in the computer, and play the music from your computer.
