Question about iLO (2 GB) MP3 Player

1 Answer

My mp3 player

I just recieved an MP3 player in the mail. It seems to work well I simply do not know how to get my sisters Mac to recognize it. When I plug it in to her computer a window pops up saying that the disk is not recognized and to continue it says to press 'ignore' or to continue. Once I press 'ignore' nothing more happens, if I press continue a window pops up where I can fix any coruppted files on the player. It is brand new so nothing on it is corrupted. I simply want to know how to get her computer to recognize it so that I can download music to it and go running!!!

Apple is very proprietary and doesnt like anything other than IPod. Try it on a PC using Yahoo Music Jukebox. You may still get a similar message but click ignore. If its a player from Hong Kong or China, test it for capacity 1st before downloading music to it as most of the players have been hacked to show twice the capacity and if you fill it with the advertised GB, it will crash as it looks for space beyond its capacity

My SanDisk is a portable USB/ compatible to IMAC?

although your mp3 player may not officially be imac compatible, it should still plug in and be recognized by your imac just fine, you just wont be able to use any software that may or may not come with the mp3 player, however given that its not a zune (microsoft product) and that its not an ipod, it should work perfectly fine, and you should be able to simply drag and drop your music onto the mp3 player when it is recognized by your imac. just be sure to copy the files over to it while its plugged in by using the file browser of your mac.

My computer is not recognizing my sylvania smp2200 mp3 player.

This type of problem is usually an easy fix; often involving simply installing the correct driver. I'd love to point you in the right direction, but I need to know what operating system you are using (example: Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X, etc.)

Just got a MacBook Pro and it won't recognize my Insignia mp3 player. Is it possible to download to it from a Mac?

It is amazing to me when people say that the Mac "just works" and Windows is ****. And then they complete the sentence with the fact that the Mac is not compatible with or won't play some third party software or device as we see above. Believe me I know all to well the problems with Windows. But right now I can't get my mac to recognize my MP3 player either and I have had plenty of issues where my MBP locks up and I have to forcefully quit an app.

Sansa e260 isn't recognized by my mac

On your Sansa Go to "Settings" then "System Settings" then "USB Mode," change it to MSC, now try connecting it. If that doesn't work try the other modes just in case.
Hope this helps!

I have sansa c240 mp3 player but my pc with windows 98 did not recognize it

If you have windows 98, you probably have older than windows media player 10. You need windows media player 10 or newer, as it says on the package in the fine print. I had windows media layer 9, and I had to use my sister's computer to work with my player. I know its frustrating!!!

Ok my mp3 works but the clock portion does not ,why is that?

Simply, you need a new is the secret....not everyone knows how to change the watch battery and re-install the mp3 device properly. Please do not attempt to change the battery yourself...there are delicate springs inside and if they are damaged, your watch will malfunction. Only a professional should change the battery. if need futher assistance you can call Mercer at 661 917 4615 $35,00 return watch postage included with price.

Mac cannot play it


I had the same is what you have to do, YOU WILL NEED someone with a windows operating system who has windows media player 9 or higher, because these players recognize yp-u3 and you can write into their SYSTEM folder! fist of all save all your files from the mp3 because you will delete them!

1) you have to download the v1.11 firmware from

this is from the official samsung site.

2) unzipp it: there are two files with extensions: .ROM and .RSC

now you have tt go to your friend who has the above described windows op. system. if you connect the mp3 player if you open my computer you will see the mp3 player appear as portable device or something like that...find the system folder.

Copy the .ROM first inside the SYStem folder

remove safely your mp3

restart your mp3

it will say something like the firmware is being installed..than it will start

put it back into the computer

copy the .RSC file into the SYSTEM folder...this is the resource file

now remove it safely again

restart it. it will update the resource file.

now go in the menu of the mo3 to settings .. system .. format. this will clean up the memory.

now the mac will recognize your mp3 but you will not be able to copy files, without this program:

NOw you are done. it works for me perfectly...mac os x leopard, macbook.

any problems, mail me...
