SOURCE: 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".

SOURCE: how to format raw sandisk

Alright, plug the player in with your USB cable.

Open "My Computer" and find in on the list of drives and CD-Roms. It will be called something like "Audio Device" or "Removable Storage Device". Make sure you find the correctly icon for the player.

Right click the player then select the format option. You'll probably want to use a FAT32 format as it is the usual format for MP3 players and flash drives of the like. This will totally erase any files on the player, so be forewarned before you complete this.

Raw file system is basically the media in it's standard state. All the information is recorded as zero's and this is how your computer is seeing it. It is either reporting incorrectly due to bad file system error, or simple was formatted incorrectly.

Give that a try, let me know what happens. :) Hope it helps.

Hi, I have a cortex DJ Mix 300 but only some of the songs on my ipod are being picked up on the database when I load it up. It doesn't seem to make a difference whether the files are MPEG or other...

There are different digital formats and some are not compatible to transfer file names... It is frustrating isn't it?... run into this all the time. To fix the probllem you would probablly have to buy a music editing software packaage that you could edit the files and put them all in the compatible mode.

I have a lg cyon su910 mobile phone. but, can't play mp3 player. how can play my lg cyon su910 mp3 player? needed to any software install to the phone for the problem???

The LG Cyon can only support music within the MUSIC folder on the Mini SD card, put all the MP3's in the Music folder.

Also, it only supports wmv's and MP3's if my memory serves correctly.
