my rio carbon had the same problem and displayed upgrader all the time if it helps what i did was i cf modded my rio carbon look on google and see if your rio chiba can be cf modded and if that works that would be pretty cool and remember if you have any tech problems or mp3 problems google it and google usually will have an answer have a good day
try puting a cf card in it or look up problem on google if this doesnt help hold in menu and power for 4 seconds see if this helps in undoing the upgrader message if not try connecting it to a windows pc with xp or 7
Hi Allyson, This is a problem which I have encountered alot with my Rio Carbon. A solution which always works for me is to hold the player face down in my left hand and then slap the back of it with my right palm a little harder than I would if I was winding a baby. Best wishes, I hope this works for you as it does for me.
The writing message may appear for a good forty minutes after completing the firmware upgrade - make sure your player is fully charged and just let it sit for an hour on that writing status - it will stop eventually.
Your Rio Carbon is telling you that something is messed with its firmware and it can be resolved with an upgrade.
You have to determine the exact model of your unit and download the firmware from http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/.
Again you must choose the exact model. There are two ways of updating firmware updater or internet updater. complete instructions are also available. further you would need to connect your Rio to a PC to perform the upgrade.
Good luck and pls post back should you need further information.
well i own one too and thats probly the hard drive being stuck...just smack it against something hard , like sorta bump the rubber armor against the heel of your hand or a countertop...worked good for me...ya have to do it a few times...dont worry rio is defunct so theres really no warranty to think of anywayz
Sorry dude, with the hard drive clicking you are probably looking at a toasted drive or controller chip. When you get the 'upgrader' screen the device cannot get information from the drive. Your best bet is to remove the drive and try it in another device such as a digital camera or a PDA with a slot. The average life of these devices seems to be about 2 months, with a (very) few people eeking out a year or so. Most of the time the volume control breaks, or cycles, or the drive interface craps out ('upgrader' screen)
