Had the same problem with a freinds RCA. Wouldn't recognize in his pc. Took it to my house. Seemed to work in mine. You could try that or...
Plug it in. Right click My Computer and hit properties. Go to device manager under the hardware tab and see if there's a flag under it. It should be under storages. If you dont see it try scanning for new hardware. If you do see it with a flag delete it from there and again scan for new hardware. 
If it still doesnt work. Try searching for the driver for the device. Download and install without it being plugged in.

Hi there.

There are 2 ways to delete songs from your Sansa E260: By browsing the folders containing the songs, or by formatting the player.

To browse the player, it's important to know first that the player has 2 modes: MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage1.gif Class). Music files saved on one mode would not be seen in the other mode when browsed through Windows Explorer.
You can switch modes by navigating your E260's menu using the following:

Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode

Next, plug your player in your PC and open Windows Explorer. You should first set your Explorer to "Show hidden Files1.gif and Folders" by going to the "Tools" menu (located on menu lists on Windows Explorer window), then choosing "Folder Options", then enabling the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio1.gif button

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Sansa E260 icon in Explorer as a "Portable Audio Device". Double left-click this icon to browse the player.
2. You'll find a "PPI NAND" sub-folder. Again, double left-click on this sub-folder.
3. You'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it.
4. Your music should appear as individual files or folders. Delete this to remove the file(s) from the player

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Drive letter and entitled either as a "Removable Drive" or as "Sansa E260"
2. Double left-click on this drive letter to browse the player
3. You may find your music files immediately on this folder, or you'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it and view your music files.
4. Delete the music files you want, and they should be removed from the player

Deleting files through Format:

1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode.
2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears.
4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen
5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player

I hope this helps. :)

I did the firmware upgrade and it is telling me that there are no upgrades avaiable. It was working finr last night then it shut off. I replaced the battery and all I am getting is Pearl on my screen.

RCA TH1101 MP3... | Answered on Mar 04, 2009

I was having trouble with my daughter's MP3. The RCA website said to download Pearl Firmware (Version 2.) (http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=25). I did, several times, but it would not work. Finally, I cheked the box "Format Data Area" under Download options. Once I did this my computer immedialty saw the Pearl and I was able to re-load all my daughter's songs in Media Player.

I hope this helps. I was so worried that I was going to have to buy her a new player.

If you are loking for the disk to load songs on to your device, you do not really need it. You can songs to your device one of 2 ways.
1. Drag & drop songs to yur device.
2. Use windows media player via the sync tab.

Hope this helps. For the drag & drop method, start/my computer/double click drive letter of device to open, then open folder where your music is stored, select song or songs, hold down left mouse button and drag to device and release.

well it depends on what happened. if you did not do the safely remove hardware from the computer stuff then you might need a new one. the rca pearl is kinda low tech so it has no reset button to wipe its hard drive. i would buy a new one. i need to do the same thing so i feel your pain

RCA TH1101 MP3... | Answered on Feb 24, 2009

Start/my computer/removable drive, double click to open. Highlight files or songs you wish to delete.

RCA TH1101 MP3... | Answered on Feb 23, 2009

Try loading songs to your mp3 player using windows explorer rather then using media player or othe rsoftware. Drag & drop to device.

RCA TH1101 MP3... | Answered on Feb 23, 2009

Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.

Use Windows Media Player to transfer music and delete songs

As far as downloading songs, you can sign up for a wide number of music services - each one has a different download method, and the company website will explain how to use it. The problem with this RCA player is that it was tied to Yahoo!'s Musicmatch Jukebox svc, which was cancelled in October 2007, so you will have to find another music service. Some music services will recognize the RCA player directly, and you can use their svc to download the songs directly to your player. Other services you will have to download the songs first, and then transfer them to the RCA using Windows Media Player afterwards.

Yahoo Unlimited does not download the songs directly to the Mp3 player - you must download the songs to the computer first, and then use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs from the computer to the player. Check your subscription for Yahoo Music - the lower level subscription does not allow you to transfer songs to an Mp3 player - you will have to upgrade the subscription. also, check the individual tracks - I cancelled Yahoo Unlimited because on many songs, you have to pay extra for the song even if you have purchased a subscription.
