Rio Won't Turn On

My Rio Forge suffered an unfortunate accident in which he was thrown to my feet when I had to slam on the brakes of the car. Since then, he refuses to turn on. I'm not excited about opening him up but I really don't know what else to do. Don't let my Rio die...

I'm so glad for these web search solutions for the product site was of no help. Open heart surgery seemed risky, but the forge couldn't get any worse. Off with a couple of screws, pry it open, another two screws, blow on it a few times, put back together and like magic, all is good.

Wow. This may sound odd, but doing an open heart surgery on this mp3 player actually worked! All I did was disassemble, blow into the circuit, re-tension the battery tab. Voila! It works again.

I actually got it to work after all. I did some open heart surgery and pushed a piece that had fallen out of place back where it belonged and he turned on again. Unfortunately, he is no longer able to remember where on a playlist he was but at least he works

Try plugging it into your computer with your usb cable. If it comes on run the firmware update for your player. If that doesn't work try giving it a good smack. Doesn't sound very helpful I know but that is what I did when I dropped mine on the cement and it quit. What did I have to lose it wasn't working anyway.

My rio forge player is showing "upgrader"


When mine did this it meant the firmware inside had gotten corrupted. It started working again when I reinstalled the firmware. The official firmware is available at the official website, and wikipedia promotes an unofficial firmware that provides more features.

For either of them, plug the unit into the USB port of your computer, then run the utility to upgrade the your Forge.

(Eventually, my Forge's internal memory storage died - it still play music from card memory, but every time I turn it on I have tell it my language is english etc.)

I hope that helps.

Grace Note not working in Windows Media or Rio Music Manager


you are suffering from the Digital licensing information encryption from the majors, which ITunes will NOT agree to. That's how the music industry is making it's muscle show, with this sort of tawdry nonsense. I don't believe there's a s/w upgrade on this, unfortunately. There is a slight possibility that your software might have an interpreter, yet your Rio being that old, not for certain.


got backup?

Having trouble getting my Rio Forge to work


Mine wasn't recognising the player through the USB cable so I followed Mantraguy's instructions to reload the firmware. Make sure though that you hold down the menu key before you switch on the player. Then it shows upgrade and you can reload the firmware. Of course you will lose all the songs on the internal memory but if it isn't working anyway.

good luck

Try hooking the player to your computer and reformat the memory in the player. Just like you would format a disk.

Sorry for reverting to the basics, but have you tried taking the batteries out of it? That should revert it to its basic configuration.
