Question about Tao WIFIMP1 20 GB MP3 Player

Tao wireless media player

This player is no longer working. It appears to boot OK, then says "no content". It does, or did, have content. It is not recognied by my PC, and I cannot use any of the wireless features. I have tried a reset, with no luck. I even tried to "format". No luck. Any ideas? If there are places that can repair this player, I would consider that as well.

Thanks for the response.  I have done tons of research online and unfortunately, soniqcast is now out of business.  Restoredsound won't repair the Tao player.  Giant International has discontinued the device, so the will not provide any support.

Do you use or one of the music stores that the device can connect to?  If so, I recommend that you find a way to back up.  I have another device that works.  It "froze" over the summer, so I did a reset.  It lost my audible. com settings, and I could not reenter them.  It turns out that the player connects to a server at soniqcast to update the list of stores.  That server is gone now, so, I have no way of inputting my data.  Thus, I cannot activate the player.  This was my main use for the player!  Oh, Well.  It's really to bad, because I love the player when working.  There doesn't seem to be any other players that do the same thing.

If you use already, there may be files on your player that allow you to directly connect to and enter your info.  If so, do you think you could send it to me?  That would be a great help.

Remember to back up!!

I have one of these players also,but haven't had any trouble yet.  It seems like the website is no longer working.  I did download the owner's manual some time ago and on the last page it indicates that the product is under trademark by Giant International, LTD, in Atlanta, GA.  I looked up their website at and the addresses match.  Their product line is now just 2-way radios, but they do have a contact page with address and phone listings, so maybe they could help in repairs.  Another source would be, who made the original Aireo on which the Tao player was based.  Their website has an email link to a repair facility - [email protected] .  It's sad that this player wasn't refined more where it could compete with the ipod market.  Still it's been great for me, I download audible books from hotspots wherever I am and use the wireless fm transmitter in my truck.  Good luck on the repairs.

Playing HD content in your pc which got low processing speed with lots of lagging and poor synchronization of audio and video, has become a great issue. Here is the solution for that problem.

Step 1 : Download Media Player Classic - Home Cinema from :

Step 2 : Download Core AVC Video Decoder from

Step 3 : Install Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And now install CoreAVC Video decoder.

Step 4 : Open Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And click VIEW->OPTION.

Step 5 : OPTION windows appears. Select "External Filters " and click "Add Filter" and then select "CoreAVC Video Decoder" from the list and click OK.

Step 6 : In that same "External Filters" window choose "prefer" radio button visible under " add filter" button. Click OK.

Step 7 : You are DONE. Now your Laptop/PC will play HD content easily. Sometimes this Decoder is supported by Windows Media Player and it will also play the HD content easily after you follow the above steps properly.

Note : In some cases, when you install the Core AVC Video Decoder, even Windows Media Player and other media player make use of it and you can run any kind of video files, even you can run FULL HD Videos in Windows Media Player Itself.

The Media Player Home Classic is preferred because, it buffers the whole video first (very fastly) and then it plays. Hence there is no lag in playing Videos.

Thank You.

Mines doing the same thing i can suggest trying it on another computer. If that works then you need to install the lastest update of firmware on your mp3. Tell me if that works for you.

I did PC restore using Dell F11 reset tool / no dvd or cd recogni

Go to Dell's support site and to their driver page. Put your model number in the box for a search and a page with your drivers will appear, download the drivers for your model and do a re-install of them. download them to a temp folder and when they are downloaded, double click and they will self install, put off rebooting until you install them all.

I have 5 digital 8mm video tapes that seem to be corrupted somehow. They play back with a "stutter" or skip, pause, etc. The tapes appear to be OK but the digital content isn't being read...

Yes it is possible that another player would be more sensitive and might read them. I would borrow or rent another camcorder/player locally and see if that is the issue.
