Re: memory card question

Be sure you have a fresh battery. At some point the battery doesn't have enough energy to run both the player and the card. You can pull the card out and play what is in the internal memory or just replace the battery. I am cheap so I play it without the card for until the battery dies the rest of the way.

Re: memory card question

It should read the songs automatically. Once you have inserted the card with MP3 Format or WMA formatted songs it should read it.

Memory card question


Did you put the memory card in while the device was off? If not, turn the unit off and back on again. It should be pretty straightforward, once you put the card in the player should recognize it.

The player can only handle cards of a certain size, usually 1gb or less. I would go back over the user's manual and make sure you followed the instructions to the T.

Rca lyra won't read memory card

WMA files come in two formats DRM & non-DRM. Change your setting in Windows media player (Options - Copy Music) and re-rip the music CD. You can copy both versions but one will play but not the other.

Once you insert the memory card I believe it mixes the songs on the player's internal memory with the memory card's songs.

this is the best solution you have update your lyra rd 1080/rd 1090 for download the updating click her and after instaling this update follwo instructions provided below ? To update your Lyra RD1080/RD1090, make sure you have it connected to the computer via the included USB cable.

Problem using Scan Disk memory card

I had the same problem, and that is what RCA answer me: "... Due to a unique FAT12/16 cluster size requirement, the supplied format utility that comes with the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075 MUST BE used on all SD/MMC cards before they will work in the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075. Once formatted, these cards will still be FAT compatible and should still work with other devices, i.e. RD1080. The format utility can be found under "Programs", "Lyra Personal Audio Player", "RD1021,RD1071,RD1075", "Format Media" once your software has been correctly installed from the included RCA CD-ROM. ..."
