I figured out how to fix it. You must first go to "my computer" with mp3 attached by usb. Once the main "my computer" box is open right click on whichever drive the player displays as. A list should appear with the selection to format. Once the format box opens after clicking format you have to change the FAT32 to FAT. Then click format and after that the player should work again. NOTE: The player takes awhile to boot up the format so give it 10 seconds at least. Hope this works for you!!

MP 3 player is frozen - removing battery doesn't help

You will be able to restore the functionality of you Lyra after you reinstall the firmware you can download from the manufacturers website. This is a very common problem for mp3 players.

Here are the instructions once you have downloaded the file.


We highly recommend you do not connect your player to the computer until Step 3.

  1. Locate the downloaded RD2010/11/12/15 upgrade file and double click it.
  2. Following the onscreen instructions, allow the program to completely install all USB drivers (Windows 98SE and Windows ME) as well as the upgrade program and firmware. You may be required to reboot once the install is complete.
  3. Connect your RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015 to the PC using the USB cable.
  4. From the “Start” menu, select “Programs” > “Lyra™ Personal Audio Player” > “RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015” > “Update Device.”
  5. After the program is finished searching for the device, drivers and new hardware may be detected and installed. Then the “Update Lyra™ (RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015) Device” box will pop up with current version and new version (1.51) of firmware shown.
  6. Press “Start” to update the firmware of your Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015. Depending on your existing firmware version, the Upgrader might show an option for formatting the device. Click “Yes” to continue.
  7. When the update is complete, click “Close.” If present, use the Windows system tray icon to safely disconnect the Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015 and unplug it from the USB cable.
    Your update is now complete.
I hope that helps.
