Try a new/different USB cable. My Lyra was a painful thing with cables. Also, make sure the plug and receptacle are clean. Improper connection can do this.

Also, you should have gotten a driver CD for the player. It contains the correct drivers for the lyra, and will help Windows XP use the correct USB drivers.

Try those and see what happens. It may just be corrupted USB drivers.

Hope it helps bud!

    My Rca #TH1702-A won't connect when I plug it into the usb port.

    Go to here: and download either of the Firmware Updates/Restore Utility and run it on your PC while your 1702 is connected via USB.

    Mine wouldn't connect and would tell me it was too full (even though I had plenty of space) and would shut down. I ran this utility, and it reinstalled the firmware and formatted the device, now it works perfectly.

    Try a firmware recover. Download the firmware update from the RCA website and install the app. Start the updater and connect the player holding the PLAY button until it gets detected.
    This is a similar player with the recovery procedure explained:

    When I plug in my Zen Micro to the PC to chage all i get is the flashing charge signal but the devices does not recgharge. This is the same USB that i have used successfully on another PC. it also wont...

    I use to have that little player and i remember how it could be tricky on different computers.


    If these don't work please report back:
    4. If the Zen is not detected by or charging from the computer when connected, make sure you are using a USB port on the back of the computer (built into the motherboard) instead of one wired to the case (front or side). That way you are using a USB port with the proper power output.

    5. If the Zen is not detected by or charging from the computer when connected, make sure the USB port you are using are USB 2.0 and not v1.1. If you computer is a newer computer, this shouldn't be a problem, but if it is an older computer, it may only have USB 1.1 ports which doesn't output enough power as USB 2.0 ports.

    6. If the Zen is not detected by or charging from the computer when connected, make sure you have no other USB devices plugged into the computer (front and back ports), but the Zen. That may be worth a try to see if you can get enough current from the USB ports to begin charging it again. Usually the more devices you have plugged into the USB ports, the less current that will be available for charging due to the power being shared with all other devices plugged in.

    7. If the Zen is not detected by or charging from the computer when connected, make sure that the drivers are loading for it properly under Device Manager (no conflicts showing). I believe the Zen will not be detected or begin charging unless its drivers are loaded and working properly.

    You must be running Windows 98 - see if RCA's website has the driver - you must have that driver or the installation CD - there is no other way (unless you get a computer running Windows XP or higher):

    1. Insert the supplied installation CD into the CD-ROM drive first.
    2. Read the readme file of the installation CD.
    3. Double Click “77xinst”, then Restart Computer.
    Method Two:
    1. Insert the supplied installation CD into the CD-ROM driver and
    connect the unit to your PC via the supplied USB cord.
    Note: Do not select the charging battery mode after connecting the
    unit to your PC. Please see page 4 for details.
    2. If the player is recognized by your PC, the “Add New Hardware
    Wizard” is activated, and click “Next”.

    have a look to see if theres a reset button or switch anywhere. sometimes a small hole in the casing to insert a small driver/needle.
    connect to the PC with a USB Cable ( if it has 1 )
    If not, possible faulty unit, or insufficient Battery Power. use high power Batterys. Duracell or Similar.
