Question about Rio CE2100 MP3 Player

2 Answers

PC says there are tracks, Rio says no

This is crazy. When I turn the device on, it says there is insufficient space to create a database, as if it's full. Yet when I try to play music, it says there are no tracks on the device! I connect it to the PC, go into Rio Music Manager, and it shows the tracks that I've synced to it. I've gone so far as to format it, but it still comes up saying I need to "delete content" because of the "insufficient storage". Shouldn't that have erased everything? grrrrrrrr

    I was trying to fix this for a friend, but finally gave up on it. She's getting a new one. Thanks.

    Did you format using windows?

    Have you tried formatting and reinstalling the firmware?

    Have you tried installing a newer firmware?

Well that's my second solution for most people.

I've now had my Rio for about 5 years and it's just about given up the ghost no matter how many fixes I have performed on it... Maybe that's part of the problem. I'm probably going to but a number of old ipods off ebay and fix them for my next player(s). Anyway... Please rate the solution to show that the problem has been solved.

Thanks,

Mowcius

I turn it on and it says mtp db mismatch then no space for dbplz delete more than 4.0mb


In order to create the media library database for your device to work properly, there needs to be at least 50MB of free space. Just delete a few songs and try again.

You could also use easyRip's Device Info module to switch to MSC mode if you have addition MTP conflicts

(Either way, you do need 50MB of free space on your device for it to power on and create the db properly)

I have encoutered a number of difficulties which i would please like you to...


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

ErrMsg "There is insufficient space to index your content."


Normally when you format the Rio it does not actually remove the firmware so this may not have done anything. I would advise upgrading to the 1.95 or 3.04 firmware and format then and see if this sorts the problem.

Hope this helps,

Cannot load the music Data base.


Music Database refers to the information you see on the screen (i.e. Artist, Album, etc.) The device needs some free space in order to create this list.

The device is either too full, or the database is corrupt.

First, try connecting to your PC and deleting about 10 to 15 tracks. Restart the device and see if that helps.

If not, Try formatting the device thru My Computer>Device name (U10)>Right Click and select format.(this will erase everything on the device)



Best of Luck.

My sansa is messed up


It is referring to the "database", or the menus on the device. (i.e. - songs titles, music, artists) It needs at least 6MB of free space on the device to create this. If you freed up what you think is 6MB, it may not be enough. Even though you have a 2GB player, there is only 1.85 of usable space on it. So try deleting some more tracks. If not, format the device and start over. Right click on the device in My Computer and select format. Best of Luck.

Rio CE 2100 : insufficient space to index your content


I would recommend wiping 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 carbon 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=235).
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

Insufficient space to index your content


I would suggest going to the rio site, http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=235. Downloading the latest version of the rio music manager. See if,once the manager is loaded, you can access your music. What OS did you load? Are you using MS indexer or Google?
