ErrMsg "There is insufficient space to index your content."
After I had added a few MP3 files (about 70 songs) and a playlist, the player stuck on indexing after disconnecting it from the PC. After 4 hours the progress bar was still at the same position where it was like 1 minute after the reboot so I do assume it stuck. I'm using Windows Explorer to add music - never used any media player to sync. So I turned it off and after firing it up again it just comes up with the Rio-log before it resets. It will stay in this loop until I power it off or I connect it to the PC again. I did a reset, formated the disk (quick and full), re-installed the firmware (1.43) and got all kind of strange behaviors. The most notable thing was the message I got two times after I falttend the device and restarted it (there were no files on the device):
"Remove tracks" "There is insufficient space to index your content." "Delete some tracks?" (Yes/No) -> Yes "Chose content to delete?" (Oldest/Newest/Cancel) -> Oldest/Newest "Connect to PC and delete some content manually."
Now I am in the state where I can add MP3s and playlists but it will not even attempt to index them. It will notice that some diskspace is used but it will always show "no tracks" as well as "0 tracks, 0 playlists" under "About". Does anybody know how to get this thingy back on indexing?

Normally when you format the Rio it does not actually remove the firmware so this may not have done anything. I would advise upgrading to the 1.95 or 3.04 firmware and format then and see if this sorts the problem.
Hope this helps,

Books, etc. from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.
I hope this helps
Please rate me,
1. Have WMP11 always on top for "drag and drop" usage Right click in the head of the WMP11 page: in Tools > Options... > Player : select "Keep the player on top ..."
Restore Down the size of the WMP11 screen and adjust the size on the
edge(s) as you require for your screen.
2. in [Library] mode: under Playlists "Create Playlist" e.g. "My Playlist"
and Enter: "My Playlist" is added on the right screen side.
3. Open your music maps and ad songs by drag and drop method
onto the right saying "Drag items here"
4. when ready adding songs in [Library] mode: "Save Playlist"
5. in [Sync] mode drag e.g. "My Playlist" under the connected device
and "Start Sync": wait until al files have synchronized: a message
will show up when you can disconnect the player.
Here is the info from Sony:
Is it possible to drag and drop music from the Apple® iTunes® software to the portable player using the Content Transfer Application?
Yes, if you have iTunes software installed, you can transfer music and playlists from iTunes software to the Walkman® player by dragging and then dropping the files to the Content Transfer application.
The Content Transfer application supports data transfer from iTunes software 7.6 or 7.7 to the Walkman player.
The Content Transfer application supports data transfer from iTunes software 8.0. However, for playlist transfer from iTunes software 8.0 to the Walkman player, make sure you are using the latest version of the Content Transfer application. The latest version can be downloaded from the Sony Support Web Site at http://esupport.sony.com
Digital Rights Management (DRM) copyright-protected files are not supported. iTunes music files may be able to be upgraded to iTunes Plus music files, which do not contain DRM.
Do not disconnect the USB connection during data transfer.
If there is insufficient free space on the portable player, the data cannot be transferred.
The Content Transfer application is included with most newer Walkman Video players. It also is available for additional models in the NWZ-A, NWZ-E, and NWZ-S series. Some models may require an update to be compatible. Additional model-specific information can be found in the Drivers & Software section of the Sony Support Web Site at http://esupport.sony.com.
make sure that all of your id3 tags are correct and filled in for each music file before dragging and dropping. initially when i added files to my vtouch, the player recognized them automatically and added them to the standard playlists. every time i add files now, i have to manually add each one to the playlists by touching MUSIC > ADD TO AUDIOLIST > ADD TO AUDIOLIST. Then you should be in the AUDIO folder. Double touch AUDIO to view it's contents (which should now be your 'artist' folders, if you organized it that way). Go into an artist folder and double touch each track to add it to the playlists. You should see a "wait..." message and then "success" for each track you add. BUT they are not added yet, my friend. I KNOW! WHAT A PAIN!!! So when you are done adding tracks, you need to touch the back arrow to get back to the MUSIC menu. Then touch UPDATE AUDIO LIB. This may take a few minutes depending on how many tracks you added. When it's done, you should have all the tracks you added in all of the playlists.
Creating Playlist To create a playlist for Windows Media Player, follow these steps: 1. Launch Windows Media Player. 2. Clear the List pane by clicking the Clear List pane button. 3. Click the arrow below the Library Tab then select Create Playlist. 4. Type in the name of your Playlist. Loading Content 14 5. Click Songs from Library then drag them from the Details pane to the List Pane. 6. To rearrange the songs, drag them up or down in the List pane. 7. Click Save Playlist. Transferring Playlists To transfer playlists to your Sansa player, follow these steps: 1. Connect your Sansa player to the computer. 2. Select Sync digital media files to this devices using Windows Media Player on initial connection. 3. Right-click on Your Sansa Player, then select Set Up Sync. Loading Content 15 4. Select Personal Playlists from the drop down menu on the left pane. 5. Highlight the playlists you want to transfer to your Sansa player, click Add, then Finish. 6. Synchronization will start as soon as you click Finish. To see the Sync progress, click on Sync Results.
You will have to, unfortunately, set up your Windows Media Player for Auto-Sync (has definite drawbacks - inclduing: adding songs, pictures, etc that you DON'T want into the GoGear). Playlists can only be synchronized to your player via “auto sync”. Autosync will automatically synchronize your Windows Media Player library content and your player content each time you connect your Player to the PC. If you use the “manual” sync option the tracks in the playlist will transfer to your player but the playlist itself will not.
I never use Windows Media to add music to my sansa... If you want all music to show up click on my computer and then click on the icon for your sansa. there may be a folder that says music but if not it is a hidden folder. if this is so you must go to tools, then folder options, and then the tab that says view. under this will be an option that says hidden files and folders and click show hiden fles and folders and OK. this should allow you to see the music folder. from here on you can just copy and paste all files.
Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...
Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in. Right click on your Rio carbon and click on format. Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative. Then click on format. Then
when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded
http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=235). Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player. When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.
I would suggest going to the rio site, http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=235. Downloading the latest version of the rio music manager. See if,once the manager is loaded, you can access your music.
What OS did you load?
Are you using MS indexer or Google?
