I am having the exact same problem as the OP. I know that this thread is old but if anyone else finds this thread and doesn't know what to do, the e-mail address for the manufacturer is lyradj@thomson.net - the error seems to be related to the program in the Lyra so if you are still within your guarantee you should see results from the vendor or manufacturer.

Try using the firmware for rca rd 2850

This is because the system files don`t sit on a seperate chip on the printed circuits, ALL the files reside on the LYRA harddrive, so if you are going to format that drive make sure you copy the system files over to the PC drive in a folder like "LYRA" so that once you have formatted you can reinstall the operating/file system.Oh also the file system is NOT FAT32 it`s just FAT.

Sounds like you lost the files on your hard drive??? have you tryed to do a format recently?? if you did theres a way to only do the data files and not the system files and Ive seen it alot where the syste files are lost forever because of a mostake made while trying to clean a system.. Your best bet if they the manufacturer didnt give ya a backup disk 9and Im surprised they dont.) is to contact the manufacturer andd tell them what you did and see if they can assist you. you should still have your owners manual and thats where you look for the manufacturer and where to call or e-mail Good Luck

Cannot get files onto device from PC


This unit is actually produced by RCA. If you go to their website you can download Firmware, and Software to update the unit. You can also try to do a "reset". There is a very small button on the bottom, if you press this with a pen and hold it for about 3 seconds it may start working again.

You need a new battery.This is fairly straight forward replacement.But high voltages exist inside case.Case is opened from the back after removing the two visible screws.It is held on with doublesided tape so you need to carefully prise open using a sharp blade where it joins the silver/chrome centre flang.Good luck!Battery sits above the hard drive wrapped in a sponge layer.

Is it possible you deleted system files along with other files by mistake? It's a very common problem, and it would be good to know what causes this since some people say its because the Lyra allows you to delete system files which screws the device. I heard of someone that called Thomson helpline with this problem and got his replaced, so it wouldn't hurt to try. RCA has this page on the problem: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/Cultures/en-US/RLDetail.html?ArticleNum=112&PC= It might help... And there's this program that is said to help with the formatting, get it here along with some instructions: http://www.techolio.com/rd2780_upgrade/ Good luck!
