Re: Problem using Scan Disk memory card

I had the same problem, and that is what RCA answer me: "... Due to a unique FAT12/16 cluster size requirement, the supplied format utility that comes with the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075 MUST BE used on all SD/MMC cards before they will work in the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075. Once formatted, these cards will still be FAT compatible and should still work with other devices, i.e. RD1080. The format utility can be found under "Programs", "Lyra Personal Audio Player", "RD1021,RD1071,RD1075", "Format Media" once your software has been correctly installed from the included RCA CD-ROM. ..."

Memory card question


Did you put the memory card in while the device was off? If not, turn the unit off and back on again. It should be pretty straightforward, once you put the card in the player should recognize it.

My RCA Lyra RD1072A just doesnt play songs

The most probable cause that I see happening to people with the same item is the fact that somewhere between uses, the setup files in the device itself gets corrupted. When this happens, you're pretty much screwed. You can't access them because it won't let you, you can't format it because it won't let you, you're left with a dead mp3 player. Sorry, but you need to get a new one. The other one is trash.

Memory card question

It should read the songs automatically. Once you have inserted the card with MP3 Format or WMA formatted songs it should read it.
