Question about Rio Nitrus MP3 Player

1 Answer

Rio nitrus Hello there, I have had my rio nitrus in a box for about 2.5 yrs now because I knew someday I would find a way to fix it. I believe you proved me right wih your post. I already have a bunch of mp3 players and an 80 gb ipod classic but I just hate seeing things go to waste. so could you send me a picture or two of how to get the cf card into the rio cage. it would be much appreciated. thank you. Jimmy

If you look in the hints and tips section for the Rio carbon there are many things I have posted that should help you. I have no hands on knowledge of the hardware of a Nitrus but I understand that it is similar to the carbon.

Hope this helps,
Mowcius

It says "upgrader" because it is looking for a firmware upgrade - you will not be able to get rid of this message without doing the firmware upgrade - go to the rio website and follow the instructions for doing a fimrware upgrade - the msg will be removed, and you will be good to go

"RESTARTING"


I encountered the same issue with my Nitrus. After following instructions to upgrade firmware, I had the "restarting" message on screen. I then took the unit apart once again. I could hear the drive making a noise. I tapped on the back of the drive with a screwdriver and the player started working properly.

Ok Rio nitrus is great litle thing, and I had the same problem. This is what you should do:

1) download latest firmware for rio nitrus http://www.rioaudio.com/support/rio/downloads/Nitrus/RioNitrus_firmware_123.exe
2) unpack firmware
3) connect Rio Nitrus to your comp;
4)While holding menu buton press power button, you sholud see on display showing UPGRADER text;

5) Then upgrade the firmware ( note that this will erase all the songs- read the read me file that come with firmware);

Although I allready have the same version of firmware v.123 like the one that upgreded this solved the problemm.

Music won't upload onto my Rio.


I have not been on FixYa for about a 1/2 a year so as I seem to be the only person answering Rio problems I have only just seen your problem... Sorry, so if you haven't bought an iPod yet (or you want to try and fix this anyway) then I would recommend wiping and rebooting your player:

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio player 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 from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=112).
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.

Hope this helps

Saving Settings


1) Make sure that you use your MP3 Player carefully. Don't drop it. and put it in a safe place. 2) Charge your Player only when its battery nearly empty. 3) leave some storage available, like 10% of your storage. 4) Unplug it from your PC when you aren't using it. 5) Use safe removal when removing it from your PC. 6) When you don't use it, Shut it down. Good Luck

Transfer error - Disagreement between player and software


I had the same issue and I eventually re-formatted the player. Once I had finished that, it seemed to work again, letting me add songs.

Rio nitrus will not power up


I took ny Rio Nitrus apart trying to fix the screen & noticed that the rechargable battery connects to the motherboard with two flimsy little wires and a pinhead worth of solder. If you've tried everything else, it'd be worth your time to take off the back and have a look 'cuz a drop could easily have shaken one of these wires loose.
