It is easier to reformat the mp3 player. When the mp3 is plugged in to the PC, go to my computer, the double click the mp3 player there. You will see internal storage, right click that and click format. You will lose all the stuff on the mp3 player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

SOURCE: My RCA M4208RD-B not detect the PC and need firmware updater

This link below is for the EasyRip Installer software itself.

This link is for the firmware updater for EasyRip software.

See if this helps any. It appears that there are various problems with these players & it takes some "finess" to get them working properly. Even after the above software & updates, I am still banging my head on the wall. Good luck!!!

You can get a starter kit which has a charger that you plug in that solves the power issue. Once you get it charged try checking to see if your computer is set to automatically detect new hardware. Also did you get a chance to install easy rip or did that not work either. another thing you can try is to open Windows Media Player when the player is pluged in and see if WMP picks it up, if it does then you can add songs that way.

You need to convert First with any converter.

1) Make sure the HOLD/LOCK switch on the side is not turned on.

2) Make sure the files got riped into mp3 file format (right click on the rip file --> Properties, to see the information about the file).

3) Make sure you drag and drop (or copy-paste) the mp3 files into the MUSIC directory.

Delete more than 4.omb

I think the problem is that you deleted one of the syst. file on the RCA Lyra.. These are the files you need to have in order to make the mp3 player work.


and the 4 folders (Voice) (line-in) (FM) (audible)

Try the reset button on the back of the unit. This requires a pin or pencil point to activate. Note that this player must be disconnected from your computer by following the disconnect instructions in the owner's manual only, you cannot just unplug it.
