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.

Most MP3 players are "snap-together" cases. BUT look for screws under covers or decals first....

You will have broken your hard drive...

Try replacing it with a CF card...

Everybody says that this does not work but it definitely does!

My Rio got dropped and I completely buggered the hard drive so after reading many forums saying that it didn't work I read one that said that someone had told them that sandisk ultra II ones worked (very vague!)

Because I had nothing to lose I went out and bought a 1GB sandisk Ultra II CF card. I then took apart my rio and replaced the hard drive with the CF card. Still not thinking it was going to work I plugged it into my computer and installed the latest firmware (from the rio website) and then HEY PRESTO!!!!!! it works.

I have yet to try an 8GB ultra II card but when I do i will keep you posted.

If you don't believe me then I don't blame you but If you send me a request then I can send you pictures and more details...

Rio will live on

Hope this helps

Just to say to ThaMp3Doctor:

The Rio Carbon supports direct file drag and drop to the player. Please get your facts right before posting comments that are not correct. There are also many programs that will work for file transfer with the Rio Carbon.

The 3.04 developers cut firmware is available here:

If you look in the hints and tips section for the Rio carbon then it is there... That link works so I am not sure which link you are referring to.

Hope this helps,

You must use the native software - still available on rio's website. No other transfer method will work with this player.

How to take music off Rio Carbon


I have bad news - I was completely unsuccessful in dragging tracks from the rio to my computer. You can load songs, but you can't "unload" them with the Rio Carbon.

Just in case your computer has capabilities that mine does not, try this:
Double-click "My Computer" on your PC desktop
Double click the Rio Carbon icon
Double click the "Music" folder
Try dragging a single music file from the "Music" folder window to your PC desktop - it will either work, or it will say that it cannot copy the file to the specified location.

Good luck!

Rio Carbon 5GB Problem


I had the same problem. I smacked the back of it (in my hand, not off any surface) to try to release the pin stuck on the hard drive. Rio Carbon currently works for me, but I will not expect too much. I have had mine for awhile now.

This is probably only a temporary solution, in the long run your hard drive will most likely get stuck again.

My RIO isn't working due to power leak?


I killed my Rio by transferring files on low batt. Once it dies, it cannot be recovered - trust me, I tried every method possible. I even physically took it apart. Once these ones die, there is no coming back - Rio no longer makes.supports mp3 players.

Rio Carbon Repair


I think you should keep looking for another solution, but what i know is that for out of warranty carbon players you can't get it fixed through rio/sonic blue, they will only replace it for a new one/remanufactured one for 99$. Here's a link to a previous post of someone who had the same problem as you: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=101466&prdid=230965 Good luck
