Question about Rio Carbon MP3 Player
I was standing in line at the grocery store, dropped it (didn't fall far or bounce around a lot), and now it's completely unresponsive. I've had it for about 6 monts and I hadn't dropped it before this. The player looks like brand new and nothing seems to be loose, broken or missing, so I can't figure out what's wrong. I'm sure it's something internal, but I don't know where to take it to get it fixed! Please help! Does anyone know of either an electronics chain that will fix Rio mp3 players or, if not, a local Chicago business? Please help because it's practically brand new and I really don't want to have to buy a new one!
I've dropped mine loads of times and nothing's happened, but now mine won't turn on after a charge. It doesn't do anything just blank, I've tried resetting as well, with paperclips.

I have had my Rio Carbon for several years and have been very happy with it--until today when I dropped it on my kitchen floor and I am getting the "upgrader" screen and the Rio software tells me it is in "recovery mode". I tried the paperclip thing and all of that, to no avail. I was going to reformat it, but the computer, while it recognizes that I have the Carbon plugged it does not recognize a disk as being present. I guess, like the others above, I broke the harddrive with one drop.

I apologize this isn't a solution but I wanted to let you know that I dropped my Rio Carbon player this morning at the gym and now mine won't do anythin either. I reset the player and then I received a display message of 'upgrader." Per the websites instructions i tried to install the most recent 'firmware' and it still does nothing. When it restarts itself it goes right back to displaying 'upgrader' I installed the firmware software a few times per the instructions and still nothing has happened :( I am sad and frustrated at the same time--mine was maybe used a dozen times. I hope we get some feedback to our problem--and again I apologize I didn't post the solution. Jill
