Troubleshooting
Symptom
iAUDIO does not
power on.
There is no sound.
FM Radio does not
work.
Remedy
37
Explanation
Make sure that the polarity of the
installed battery is correct.
iAUDIO does not work if the polarity of the
battery is switched.
Replace the battery with a new one.
iAUDIO does not work when the battery is
dead.
Remove the battery and insert it again.
Check if contact areas of the battery (+ &
- poles) are clean.
Make sure that there are mp3 files in
the memory.
iAUDIO does not work if there is no file saved
in the memory.
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.
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 or a moving car, or on some
stretches of a subway. In addition, listening to the radio may become impossible in radio
wave shade areas.
If FM radio does not work where radio reception should be possible, there may be a
problem in the reception module. In this case, please contact our AS Center.
Characters on LCD are
abnormal.
Change the language setting to ‘English’ in the ‘Country & Language’ menu of iAUDIO,
and select ‘File name’ in the ID3 tag adjustment menu. If the problem continues, contact
our AS Center. However, some special foreign characters may be displayed abnormally
due to restriction of embedded fonts.
The displayed/used
capacity of flash
memory is reduced.
(E.g.: 119MB is
displayed for 128MB
memory)
Some of the flash memory in iAUDIO is used for system area.
Therefore, when we exclude the system area essential for normal operation of iAUDIO, the
actual capacity of the flash memory is somewhat reduced.
For example, with a 128MB product, about 119MB of memory capacity is normal.
iAUDIO 4
38
Troubleshooting
Remedy
Explanation
Memory is full and
iAUDIO works
abnormally or does
not play.
Symptom
Initialize iAUDIO and leave a free
space of 1-2 MB, then try again.
An important system file, "settings.dat" is
saved in the Root folder of the Flash memory.
When this file is not saved properly, or deleted,
or damaged during file transfer, iAUDIO may
not work normally.
Hundreds of files are
saved in Root folder
and iAUDIO does
not work or works
abnormally.
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.
iAUDIO uses FAT. Owing to the limitations of
FAT, you are advised not to save many files in
the root directory.
When ‘JetShell’ is activated, it controls the iAudio drive. Therefore, you should exit ‘JetShell’ before performing the following tasks:
• Installing the USB drive
• Formatting in ‘Windows Explorer’
• Upgrading the firmware

Guide to Firmware Upgrade
65
Guide to Firmware Upgrade
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.
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 the data in the flash memory is 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.
• Some beta versions of the firmware included in our development roadmap may have minor bugs that will
be corrected in the official versions of the firmware. We are warning you beforehand of this possibility
through this Guide.
C. Conditions for Firmware Upgrade
• Upgrading the firmware of iAUDIO requires the basic environment where the UMS feature of the
Windows OS works properly.
• You can check "iAUDIO" in ‘My Computer’ on Windows 98 /ME /XP.
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.
