I've dropped the player and when i turned it on the text "Filed to load files Resen unit to resume operation"
"Update Lyra Hd Files System if problem persists"
I found the recovery program, but the player won't connect anymore to USB.
I had uploaded 4000 songs, help help help!
How can i fix the connection?

Re: HD won't connect
Whoa, i've been so busy lately, I almost forgot about this place...
Unfortunately, this is yet another mp3 player HDD problem. It's broken and there is nothing you can do to fix it except replace the hard drive. I hate to tell you this, but your songs are lost.
If you desperately must try everything to get the songs back, I would suggest freezing it in the freezer (put it in a plastic bag if you fear moisture getting into the unit). After removing it from the freezer, you'll have a one to two hour window to try to get all the songs off before the hard drive thaws and you won't have access to the songs anymore unless you refreeze it-the window will shorten everytime you do this.
The reason freezing MIGHT work is because most hard drive failure problems deal with the actuator arm touching/scratching the platter in which case the platter is being damaged and/or information cannot be read correctly. The coldness causes the arm to contract and stop touching the hard drive. Be aware that there might be more damage than freezing can rectify and the actuator arm might not be the problem. But hey, it's worth a try.
If that seems a bit extreme(and indeed it is), you can send it in to a hard drive recovery specialist such as one listed here: http://dmoz.org/Computers/Hardware/Storage/Data_Recovery/

I have just discovered that if you pause the player and then let it shut off on its own then press pause again later to wake up the unit and again it will pick up where you were. Now, I don't know if it uses any battery life when it's sleeping so will just have to experiment there. But the key here seems to be NOT actually turning it off. Turning it off will reset it to song #1 every single time. Which is really obnoxious.
Don't know this unit so this is general for most players.What I know is that the problem I' ve had(and solved) is that Audio/Video files are unique in that there are many types, AVI, MP4, RM, DVIX .MPEG.FLV..... In addition resolution can vary, Then There's CODEXs . You must find out what file, files are supported by your player absolutely first.I have loaded files onto players and they don't even show up on menu folders or it's Drive. Many players have websites that you can download converters/media managers that are supported by your player.Not every file is convertable.Once you learn what you can convert to put it on your player is easy,either with media manager or drag and drop onto the unit when attached to the computer look for the new Drive letter that's your unit.This problem is frustrating but once you do the steps I've instructed it will work.Good Luck.
I think I fugured it out. I think this should set the thing up for you. Turn the unit on. Push the button in and hold for the count of three. Wait as you count to two then push the buton in quickly. The screen should display a different "MUSIC" sign. Now the tiny file type in the upper left of the screen should say "mp3". Now make sure you are loading mp3 files. Be sure the unit is ON when you connect it to the USB port. Drag and drop files onto the mp3 player. I got it to accept 5 songs so far. I am working with Windows xp. Hope it helped!
I had same issue and found a law office that filed a class action against RCA/Thompson. Here is the result:
Thank you for contacting David P. Meyer & Associates Co., LPA about the action our law firm filed against Thomson regarding RCA mp3 players. The matter was settled on behalf of the individual Plaintiff and the lawsuit was dismissed on October 10, 2007.
If you have a hard disk drive player that is experiencing a file error corrupt or similar error and you meet certain requirements, you may be entitled to a replacement unit at no cost to you. You must contact Thomson at 1-800-587-5518no later than December 31, 2007.

To reset you need to have MP3 switched on, THEN hold the off switch for 10 seconds.If this fails to reset.You may have some corrupted music files
sitting on the harddrive.email email@example.com
if you still have problems as i had the same issue and found a workaround.
I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player. Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.
