    Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get the songs off of it if the computer's not acknowledging it? The device no longer turns on

For Windows XP users, the RD1020/RD1070/RD1080/RD1090 uses FAT format. FAT 32 WILL NOT WORK. But there's a good(bad for you) chance you deleted system files when you formatted it, and it won't work now at all. In that case installing the firmware might help(if you can get it to communicate with the PC at all). Do it either with the CD you should have got with it, or through RCA website - http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/Cultures/en-US/Downloads.html?ProductID=RD1072 only you'll have to wait for an update before its posted, or contact them for it. Good luck

Sigma Telformatter.

If You See This Error On Your RCA Jet ( S2001 A)
Then Your Absolutely Screwed!
I Hope You Kept The Receipt!
If Not Go Spend Another 50$ ( Keep The Receipt This Time )!
The RCA People Forgot Mention That The Memory Chip In The
Jet (S2001 A ) Is Easily Damaged or Easily Wiped Clean When
Attaching The USB Cable To A PC That Recognizes It As A Storage Drive !..Also If You Go Past 975mb of free Space Even Though It Says It Will Hold 1GB Of Music You Get The Same Error So Remember 2 Things ....
#1 Do Not Go Past 975 mb Of Free Space With Music
#2 Save The Receipt Every Time You Buy A Jet !

Sorry If Im Blunt ..But If It Helps I Had To Buy Another One Myself Cause I Had No Idea It Was A ( POS ) With Issues !!!

Whow come my rca th1100a mp3 player shows that there is music on it while plugged into computer, but shows that it's empty when I unplug it ?hat's your problem?


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

How can i delete all music from my mp3 rca series 10


Check to see if you can format it through the menus inside the mp3 player.
It might be in "Settings" or "Tools"
There will be an option called Format
Select and it "should" delete all music

If there is no Format on mp3 player

Plug it into the computer
Open device through "My Computer" or "Computer"
Select Folder where music is stored and delete.

Rca mp3 player willl not play music


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, click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player tiself.
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.

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 http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads 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).

Trying to add music


Keep in mind that these are mini hard drives (just like a computer.) From time to time they will become fragmented (especially with more files or music stored). Dialing the RCA help desk will be fustrating and useless because after waiting 40+ minutes, their expertise (from a dude doing his job in India) will only say that it is notworking and to refer to the warranty(which is also useless). But let me get back to the point. These units usually have a reset button. Also, you my need to go to the meny and profile the files (this little thing just tels the unit what it has in storage) but if all else fails, then when you connect this MP3 player to your PC, go to My Computer, and on the RCA Lyra icon, right click once and go to the properties...here you can format the drive to erase everything...so make sure you save all of your music first. After this you will be good to go. Also, try going to RCA.com and in their support page look for a firmware (the program that runs the MP3 player) update that might fix these bugs. I have sold hundreds of RCA MP3 players and playingwith these units has taught me what I know.
