Re: I think it's got a virus

Reformat the player to do this go to the start menu click on my computer right click on your player (on my computer it is removable disk g or h) then click on format and format as a fat 32 don't unplug the player or anything when it is going on or you will have major problems when it is done you should have a player with no music on it and your 4 songs that will not come off should be gone if that doesn't help reinstall the firm ware

You will need to wipe it clean then put all your songs back into it. Try using a different computer and then put iTunes on it and that should erase it all and then just load your Ipod back up with your music. What happens is that if the Ipod can't read the song, it stutters, tries to play that part, and sometimes skips songs.

The old songs had a fixed term license - opening the songs in Windows Media Player will invalidate them even if they were acquired legally at one point. You will have to find a mp3 converter or drm stripper, convert the songs, and reload them.

Sansa having problem with sync

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

3) connect Rio Nitrus to your comp;
4)While holding menu buton press power button, you sholud see on display showing UPGRADER text;

5) Then upgrade the firmware ( note that this will erase all the songs- read the read me file that come with firmware);

Although I allready have the same version of firmware v.123 like the one that upgreded this solved the problemm.

Can not copy files from Rio Karma to PC

Files can be copied to the computer from the karma although it doesn't work all that well.
You'll need to use Rio Taxi. I think you can get that if you connect the karma to your network using the dock then browse to the karma's ip address and get it. If not you may have to try and find a place to download it.

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:
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

Transfer error - Disagreement between player and software

I had the same issue and I eventually re-formatted the player. Once I had finished that, it seemed to work again, letting me add songs.
