When it says download updated version, ignore. Better yet don't use RCA software at all. Use your windows media player(version 10 or better). Click on file wanted to start media player. Then click on "now playing" and display item or all chapters if audio book is being played. Plug in RCA and drag item(s) to working area of Media Player. Hit sync. and finito!

When I try to turn on my mp3 player, it flashes the "pearl" logo and turns back off. It will not turn on. How can I fix this? Who should I take it to to get it fixed?


It will need to have a firmware update. It can be downloaded from the rca website. Otherwise you can take it to bestbuy or similar

Try a firmware recover. Download the firmware update from the RCA website and install the app. Start the updater and connect the player holding the PLAY button until it gets detected.
This is a similar player with the recovery procedure explained:

RCA pearl th1602-a with new battery will not power on. Old battery will power on, but freeze at pearl logo. Player powers on when plugged into USB of computer. It is already at the latest firmware.


When was the last time you flashed the firmware? Even if it already has the latest firmware, it sounds like it is still corrupted and need to be reflashed. It appears you already know where to find the latest firmware update based on your comments, but just in case you can download it here:

Computer not recongize the rca th1602 mp3 player


The first time I tried to restore the firmware in my Pearl it would not recognize it. I had to follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you run the software. Basically, try taking the battery out and waiting 10 seconds or so. Run the software and read all the instructions at the bottom of the popup window. then hold the play button, plug your player in, and keep holding that button until the software recognizes it. It works.

You should be able to force the Pearl into recovery mode by removing the battery, then hold down the "Play" button while inserting into USB port, after a few seconds, Windows should detect "USB Human Interface Device" (see Device Manager). Now you should be able run the firmware update. Worked for mine after it froze up one day and would not be detected as a USB device by Windows.

I have the same problem, the manual says change the battery and/or update firmware. I tried several batteries and nothing and I cannot find a firmware download. My software says no updates available.
