Frozen Mp3 player

Most of the time, this problem only requires a simple reset. ILo went out of the Mp3 business, so the manual is no longer available to the general public. If your player came with a manual, I would double-check it to see what reset method they reccomend. Also, ILo was notorious for creating websites that were not intuitive - there was no ilo.com or ilo.org, for instance. If your user's manual lists a specific website, if you would kinfdly post it here - many people would benefit.

Most of the time, this freezing issue is caused because the new version of Windows Media Player, version 11, was not compatible with the iLO player. If the manual lists an address for a firmware upgrade I would use that address (and post it also). It is highly likely, however, that the firmware upgrade is not available any longer. A firmware upgrade would resolve the problem permanently.

If there is no firmware upgrade available, and the simple reset does not work, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Won't read music

Check and make sure that the format you are trying to play is compatible with the player. For instance, iTunes files won't work with this player.

Also, you could be trying to load DRM-protected files from a service like Bearshare. Yuur screen will tell you the files are transferring, but they are really not transferring b/c they have DRM protection. There is not currently a free way that I know of to remove this DRM-encryption, although you can probably buy download rights from your music service.

Unfortunately, the ILo site is down, so their is no way to get a firmware upgrade in case this model is another victim of the Windows Media Player upgrade - WMP 11 messed up a lot of mp3 players regardless of manufacturer.

Can't add new songs

1) Make sure the file type is compatible with the player
2) make sure the files do not have DRM encryption - BearShare, Napster, etc all have DRM-encrypted files

How to download songs in the internet

Get a music service like Napster, BearShare, etc - must pay to get songs onto player. Otherwise, try a free service like Limewire, etc.

Adding or Removing tracks from my player

Yes, it could have quite a bit to do with that (even though I love BearShare).

Here are ways to delete:

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Mp3 player won't play

your ILO has somehow lost its file structure. look for a tiny pinhole to reset the device. if none, then remove batteries to attempt reset. if still no songs, then firmware upgrade if possible or copy file structure (using windows) from a friend's ILO.
