Re: iLO MP3 Player
OK well you may be able to recover these file by using an Un-erase program.. Usually when "Windows" deletes something it doesn't actually "Delete" the entire file, no... usually it simply removes the first letter of the file name and replaces it with a non-displaying character.. Say File.MP3 would then be ?ile.MP3. So try one of the proggies here---> http://www.dirfile.com/freeware/unerase.htm

For that you will need a PC/Laptop with USB port.
Connect you player to it, wait until: found new harware ILO MP3 player ...new harware is successfully installed and ready to use. After that the window will pop up: you will need to click:open folder to view files. If no window will pop up, click my computer, find the ilo MP3 player, double click.
After that you can copy your songs (in MP3 format) from any source and insert them to you ilo MP3 folder ( it might have a subfolder, called songs) and you are good to go.
I had the same problem. I connected my player, deleted all the files on the player, then i went to my computer and located the player there and right clicked, I selected format. After that I added a song and disconnected it. It has worked since. Hope this helps.
If you are using windows media player, whatever is on your sync lists will be added to you ilo and what is on your ilo that is not on your synch list will be deleted from your ilo, when you udate your sync.
For example say on your ilo you have only one album from oh I don't know lets say....Beefheart and on your synch list you have the Monkey's greatest hits and five different re-mixes of the Macerana. When you sync up, the WMP should take the Beefheart off you ilo and put on the Monkey's and the remixes. Despite your wierd taste in music, it should do all this for you.
Think of your ilo as just a player and the WMP as the program that takes the music on and off the ilo.
-Plug in your mp3 player -Go to your folder with all your songs 'My Music' and find your music files. -Either select all your songs, open them with 'Windows Media Player' and transfer them that way. -Or 'Open My Computer' then open 'iLo' and drag the songs from where your songs are located [My Music] to the 'Music' folder in your iLo folder. [MyMusic] Song.mp3 >drag to> [MyComputer/iLo] Music.
-Plug in your mp3 player -Go into your downloading program, select a song and go 'Locate file/Open Containg Folder', you should be in your folder with all your songs. or go 'My Music' and find your music files. -Either select all your songs, open them with 'Windows Media Player' and transfer them that way. -Or 'Open My Computer' then open "iLo" and drag the songs from where your songs are located [My Music] to the 'Music' folder in your iLo folder. [MyMusic] Song.mp3 >drag to> [MyComputer/iLo] Music.
For my Ilo I can see the Ilo just like another drive when it is connected to the USB port. I can move files to/from the ILO just like any other drive. Similarly I can delete the files just like any other drive (for example using Windows Explorer).
The funny~.mp3 names are usually because the title field is not filled in in the mp3 property tags, so it uses the DOS version of the filename for the title. Under windows, right click the song and select properties->summary->advanced, and make sure that the title field under "description" has what you want in it. I don't think even the makers of Ilo know how it organizes the files.
