Unable to download songs onto SD card

I recently purchased a SD card for my RCA Lyra but I am unable to download any files onto it. I went to the RCA website for assistance and it gave an explanation that the SD card needs to be formatted and the steps to take to do this. It said the go to "Programs", "RCA Lyra", "RD1071 etc", and select format media. "Format Media" is not an option that is offered to me. Is there any other way to format the SD card? What exactly does it need to be formatted to: FAT32 or just FAT?

I put songs into the Rca Folder, but when the Mp3 player is turned on it says there are no songs. It is a RCA Lyra RD1020 Mp3 Player. with a built in 128 Mbs.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Rca junk

When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support and find your player and download the firmware upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

Rca lyra won't read memory card

WMA files come in two formats DRM & non-DRM. Change your setting in Windows media player (Options - Copy Music) and re-rip the music CD. You can copy both versions but one will play but not the other.

One thing to try would be to copy all the files off your CD ROM onto your C: drive, then run whatever .exe file you're trying to run from the CD itself

How do i delete songs

My suggestion is switching the file transfer protocol from MTP to MSC by accessing it under the Menu. Once you do this, when the Lyra is plugged into the computer, it will appear as an external hard drive. Format the hard drive and then drag and drop your songs and/or directories of songs onto the Lyra. This is what I do, as I never use Rhapsody, URGE, or even Windows Media Player or MusicMatch to upload songs onto my RD2763. Hope this helps!
