Question about Tao WIFIMP1 20 GB MP3 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 audible.com 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 audible.com 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 Audible.com already, there may be files on your player that allow you to directly connect to audible.com 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 taolife.com 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 giantintl.com 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 soniqcast.com, 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.
