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,

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.

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

Doesn't detect usb connection?


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Broke volume dial


http://www.content-type.com/1461305906/carbon+3.04.EXE.htm This link takes you to a site which will allow you to download an upgrade to your carbon's software which includes a volume option in the settings menu. My wheel broke a while ago too, and I bought a new player before I found this link. I still think this is the most compact and portable 5gb player on the market. I'm back to using it now.

Rio pearl directory corrupted


first, and this is always good: If available, firmware for the Rio Carbon can be downloaded online. Second, this might be the problem: The Rio Carbon communicates with your computer differently in MTP mode than it does in MSC mode. When in MTP mode, the Rio Carbon cannot display hidden files in folders, cannot allow transfers to the root Rio Carbon directory, and cannot allow the creation of new folders. (Folders can be transferred to the Rio Carbon using drag-and-drop and copy-and-paste methods.) To use traditional folder options, change the Transfer Mode settings to put the Rio Carbon in MSC mode. Last, "..Removing the Rio Carbon from a USB connection before Idle is displayed on the screen may result in a corrupting the player's file system. If for any reason you suspect that your Rio player's file system has been corrupted, reformatting the player will restore the file system to its original state..."
