Volume settings on the Rio carbon

Is there a way or change the preset volume setting on the Rio Carbon.
Even when the volume is at its highest - It is not loud enough to listen (without straining) when walking beside traffic

Any help would be appreciated

I'm afraid that there is not. What headphones are you using? I have found that when many people ask questions like that it is the headphones and not the player. People say that when using the 3.04 firmware (look in tips and tricks for this player), the volume is higher but I haven't noticed a difference personally.. When I put my Rio up to highest volume it would damage my hearing if I could put it up any higher and I can only hear people shouting when it is on full volume. Have you got another pair of headphones/earphones to try? You could buy some high ambient noise reduction earphones and this may help.

Hope this helps,

My phones ring style is set to loud detail and volume is at the highest being 7,when I recieve a call it is silent?


Hi There,

As per my understanding you have set your ring style profile to loud and highest volume 7 but still ur phone phone rings on silent when someone calls..

Please change the Profile setting once again as mentioned below:


How to change call alerts and styles?

1.From the general menu, select "Settings" > "Ring Styles" > "Style Detail"
2.If you select one of the styles, ie. "Loud" you can then highlight by scrolling down on the wheel & select "loud detail" & press on the "change" button (top right corner key).
3.Here you will be prompted to change any feature available to the "loud" style: volume, ringtone, alerts, voice mail, text messaging sounds, reminders beeps etc etc. All you need to do is to select the feature you need to change with the directional wheel and press the "change" button for each.

If you think my solution helped u to resolve ur issue please do vote for me..

Thanks
Enjoy!!!

Very little volume, not very loud at highest


On the TV-use your finger to adjust the volume level, about midway, then use the remote to shut off the tv, then turn on tv with remote. Volume level should be better! If still not loud enough...using your finger on the tv...turn up volume & repeat remote steps.

Rio carbon can figure out how to get the download into the rio


The 3.04 developers cut firmware gives you a volume control via the bottom of your menu. You can get it from:

Opening the Rio Carbon to replace the volume button


The easiest and least damaging way to open the Rio Carbon is to start at the bottom of the player and pry it open a little until you can see the tabs. You have to push those to release them. Work you way around clockwise and there are tab a little further into the player, you have to pull the bottom of those out to release them. I did it last night and was able to repair the volume wheel and get the player back together and it works.

Volume not loud enough


Actually there is a way. If you re-encode the file using an mp3 conversion utility, you can adjust the volume there

Rio Music Manager not working.


If RMM does not want to work with your computer then transfer files using explorer...

Go into start,
Then My Computer,
Your Rio carbon should show up as a removable device, double click on it,
Then you should have 2 or more folders: Music and recordings,
double click on music and all of your music will be in there,
you can then just copy and paste music into that folder and it will play it on your Rio if it is the right format (Mp3, Wma etc)

With regards to your volume control:

If you pry a small screwdriver round the side you will see 2 clips inside attached onto a black bit (the hard drive holder) there are also 2 smaller ones near the top and 2 at the bottom but you will only have to unclip a few before the back comes off. To unclip them simply put your screwdriver below and lever off your rio and they should pop up... I have taken the back off many times and fixed my volume control and hard drive... Fixing the volume control is quite easy. Once you take the back off you will be able to see where it locates on, then you can just stick it back on with a bit of super glue etc.

Hope this helps

Does anyone think if the Equalizer presets of iPod sufficient?


Hrm..... This is a tough issue. I have experienced this as well. I can't really solve the problem, I can only share what I have done personally to deal with this. Hope this helps. I have settled on: 1. Leave the iPod's EQ on default and don't change it. 2. Change certain songs that must have EQ help individually. 3. Set the maximum volume setting on the iPod to the highest setting. 4. Assess where and how I listen to music on my iPod and plan to get headphones that work with my listening style. 5. Get better headphones. They don't have to be expensive to produce good sound quality. 6. If you connect it to a speaker dock or a stereo system use it's built in EQ/DSP.
