How to Download Songs to an ILO MP3 Player

by Andrew Smith

Ilo MP3 players are portable media players that can be purchased either at Wal-Mart locations or on the official Wal-Mart website. While Wal-Mart allows customers to purchase and download audio files from the Wal-Mart MP3 website, you can use any peer-to-peer program to add music files to your Ilo MP3 player. As with similar MP3 players, you cannot download songs straight from the program to the Ilo MP3 player.

Download and install a free peer-to-peer downloading client, such as LimeWire (see Resources below).

Open LimeWire. Type the name of a song that you want to download to the Ilo MP3 player. Click the green "Search" button, and you will find files that can be downloaded to your computer. Double-click on that file to download it. Do this for each song that you want to download to an Ilo MP3 player. When you have finished, you can close LimeWire.

Open Windows Media Player and click "File." Choose "Add to Library." Click the "Add" button. Then, search for the folder where your downloaded and other music files are saved on your computer and click "OK." Those files will then be added to your Windows Media Player library.

Plug the Ilo MP3 player into your computer. To do this, you will need the USB cord that came with the Ilo MP3 player.

Click the "Sync" tab at the top of Windows Media Player. You should see the Ilo MP3 player listed on the right side of Windows Media Player. If you don't see it, right-click on the Sync tab and choose "Refresh Devices."

Click "Library" on the left side of Windows Media Player. Then double-click "Songs." A list of all of the songs that you downloaded will appear in the middle of Windows Media Player. Highlight every song that you want to download, and then right-click over one of the songs. Choose "Add to Sync List."

Click the "Start Sync" button found in the bottom right corner of Windows Media Player. The songs will then be added to your Ilo MP3 player.

Tip

  • check Your Ilo MP3 player is not compatible with iTunes.

Warning

  • close Using LimeWire to download copyrighted songs is illegal and could result in charges being filed against you.
