As you plug the device into the computer, hold down the Play button. Leave it held until you see that it is installing new hardware (something like ROM initializing). If this doesn't work, you may need to add devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 to your environment variables (search that variable to find how if you don't know) and then in the device manager go to view and show hidden. Make sure the device is not plugged in and then remove all references to it in the device manager (any grey USB MSD or HID is what I removed). Now plug in the device while holding in the play button. I had to reboot to complete this part. Now you should be able to load the firmware (this was required here, it will format the device so there will be no files on it, including the ones that it shipped with).

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:

My mp3 player turns on but frezzes it shows pearl?


Follow these instructions to fix your RCA TH1602 MP3 player.

Whenever your player acts up, the best solution is to reflash/upgrade the firmware.

Download the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

  1. start the program,
  2. remove the battery,
  3. hold the play button while plugging the RCA player into your computer's usb port,
  4. release the play button when the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
  5. check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
  6. click the start button to replace the firmware.

This solution will fix your player.
I hope that helps.

Computer not recongize the rca th1602 mp3 player


The first time I tried to restore the firmware in my Pearl it would not recognize it. I had to follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you run the software. Basically, try taking the battery out and waiting 10 seconds or so. Run the software and read all the instructions at the bottom of the popup window. then hold the play button, plug your player in, and keep holding that button until the software recognizes it. It works.

When i put mp3 player on the computer it wont come up


If device not recognized at all:
Try removing the battery, insert Pearl WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY PRESSING and HOLDING the "PLAY" button. Windows Device Manager should see the device under "Human Interface Devices"as a "USB Human Interface Device". Run the latest firmware update, it will see the HID device and initialize it as a "Disk Drive", "_Generic MSC Recovery USB Device". Once the firmware update is complete the Pearl should work again. The trick was to remove the battery and hold down the "Play" button while inserting to force recovery mode.

Downloaded software from my rca flash mp3 player series th1602-a. I tried to download the updated version and it is not allowing me to download. I have tried plugging in the mp3 into the computer by...


when it says download updated version, ignore. Better yet don't use RCA software at all. Use your windows media player(version 10 or better). Click on file wanted to start media player. Then click on "now playing" and display item or all chapters if audio book is being played. Plug in RCA and drag item(s) to working area of Media Player. Hit sync. and finito!
