The battery level icon indicates how much battery life is left. The number of segments in
the icon becomes less as the battery discharges. For some batteries or re-chargeable dry
cells, the number of segments in the battery icon may increase or decrease irregularly
when the remaining charge is being measured. This is normal.
When the battery runs out, the battery icon starts blinking. If this happens, connect the
AC Power Adapter to re-charge the battery. If you don’t have the AC Power Adapter,
"safety power off".
When an ID3V2 or ID3V1 tag is used, the disk icon and the Artist + Album information
are displayed. When the display setting is ‘Filename’, or the tag does not include the
Artist information, the folder icon and the folder name are displayed. When the song is
contained in the root folder, "iAUDIO" is displayed in the folder name.

the keyboard or monitor), an error message may appear and iAUDIO may not work normally.
■ Disconnecting USB Cable

• To enter Digital Audio Mode from other modes, enter the Mode Switching window by pressing the Mode
button, and then select "Digital Audio".
• If AutoPlay is set to "ON", play starts as soon as iAUDIO powers on. Otherwise, iAUDIO is on standby.
In the latter case, press the PLAY button to play music.

tracks. Therefore, there can be a little delay before a track is played. In this case, the "WAIT" pop-up
window appears, and playback starts after 2 or 3 seconds.
- You can easily find out the operation status of HDD from the HDD icon at the top of LCD window and
the HDD LED on the main body.

• The next track stays in STOP status unlike the above case, where you skipped it in PLAY status.
• When you press and hold the FF or REW button, you can skip through consecutive tracks.

immediately.
5. What is Dynamic Play-List (DPL)?
• There is a special folder named "D-PLAYLIST " under the root folder (it is not displayed on HDD), in
which the links to user-selected tracks are saved.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Remedy
Explanation
Check if the ‘Hold’ button is set to ON.
If it is, set the ‘Hold’ button to OFF and
try again.
iAUDIO does not work when the Hold button
is set to ON.
See if the same phenomenon occurs
when you connect the adapter.
If the built-in battery is completely discharged,
charge it with the adapter.
You cannot hear
any sound or there
is noise.
Make sure that there are mp3 files in the
memory.
iAUDIO does not work if there are no files in
the memory.
FM Radio does not
work.
FM reception sensitivity may be weak and you many not be able to hear FM Radio clearly
depending on where you are, such as inside a building, subway or moving car. In addition,
listening to the radio may become impossible if you are in radio wave shade areas.
iAUDIO does not
power on.
Check if the volume is set to "0."
Check if the remote controller/earphone is disconnected or if there is any foreign substance
in/on the in/phone jacks.
(Noise may be generated if there is foreign substance.)
If data in the audio file is damaged, noise may be generated or the sound may break up.
If FM radio does not work where you know that radio reception should be possible, there
may be a problem in the reception module. In this case, please contact our A/S Center.
Characters on LCD
are illegible.
Change the language setting to ‘English’ in the ‘Country & Language’ menu of iAUDIO,
and select ‘File name’ in the ID3 tag setting menu. However, if the same symptom is
discovered in other iAUDIO products of the same model, some special fonts or foreign
characters may be broken because iAUDIO was developed on the Korean Windows OS.
JetShell does not
work and “iaudio
IS NOT FOUND”
appears in a window.
A separate driver must be installed for Windows 98 or 98 SE.
See "Installing USB Driver for Windows 98."
The HDD capacity is
displayed incorrectly.
(E.g.: 18GB is
displayed for 20GB
memory)
For example, with a 20GB product, about 18.6GB of memory capacity after FAT32
formatting is normal. Some of the memory in iAUDIO is used for system area which is
essential for normal operation of iAUDIO. Therefore, the actual displayed capacity of the
HDD is somewhat reduced when you exclude this.
iAUDIO does not
work or works
abnormally after
Hundreds of files are
saved in Root folder.
iAUDIO uses FAT32. Owing to the
limitations of FAT32, you are advised
NOT to save many files in the root
directory.
There are more limitations for Windows 98.
For Windows 2000 or XP, we recommend that
you create a separate folder and subfolders
under it for saving files.
When ‘JetShell’ is activated, it controls the iAudio drive. Therefore, you should exit ‘JetShell’ before
performing the following tasks:
• Installing the USB drive
• Format in ‘Windows Explorer’
• Upgrade the firmware

Deleting MP3 Files from iAUDIO
You can delete files in iAUDIO in the same manner as in Windows Explorer.

button. Then the confirmation window "Delete from flash
memory?" appears. Click ‘Yes’ to delete them.

Formatting HDD
iAUDIO requires formatting as HDD does. You should be careful when formatting iAUDIO since all data in
the memory will be deleted.
1. Select Format Device Memory from File menu. When the following window appears, select ‘FAT32’. If
you select a format other than ‘FAT32’ and format, iAUDIO is recognized as just a USB storage media and
will not function normally as an MP3 Player. Therefore, be sure to format as ‘FAT32’ only, and never use the
NTFS file system supported by Windows 2000 and XP.
You can also format by right clicking your mouse on the iAUDIO drive in Windows Explorer.

Converting Audio CD Tracks to MP3 Files and Directly Downloading Them to iAUDIO
Converting Audio CD Tracks to MP3 Files and Directly Downloading Them to iAUDIO
With JetShell, you can easily convert your Audio CD into MP3 files and download them to iAUDIO.

the speed is very fast.

Encoder Option] to set the desired bit rate of the MP3 files. (The files compressed in a high bit rate
have a higher sound quality and a bigger file size.)
2. From the ‘File Management’ section, select the CD-ROM drive in which the Audio CD is inserted.
Select the audio tracks from the right window and click
or [File] –[Convert CD to MP3]
from the menu.

Upgrading Firmware
A. What is Firmware?
Firmware is a program embedded in the hardware, which activates various features.
By upgrading the firmware, you can enhance the features of the product and eliminate the bugs in the
software.
B. Notice for Legal Limitations and Responsibilities Regarding Firmware
• The performance and menu of iAUDIO may change without prior notice through firmware upgrades of
regular or beta versions supported by the manufacturer.
• When you upgrade the firmware, all data in the flash memory can be deleted.
Therefore, users should personally back up important MP3 files and data saved in iAUDIO to their PC
before upgrading the firmware.
• All firmware upgrades are intended for overall enhancement of performance. The upgrades will be
provided when available, based on our company’s judgment.

that will be corrected in the official versions of the firmware. We are warning you beforehand of this
possibility when you read this Guide.

For Windows 2000, "Mobile Disk" may be displayed instead of ‘iAUDIO’.
• Either ‘iAUDIO’ or ‘Mobile Disk’ must be displayed for a firmware upgrade to be possible. If it is not
displayed, we recommend that you check the menu that asks whether or not to use a USB Device from
the main board CMOS, or reinstall Windows, or have the USB port on the main board examined.
