    Exactly the same problem. Have Rio Music Manager up and running on Vista it won't recognize my Rio on the device list. Tried to copy and paste individual files in Explorer but get the "not allowed" dialog. :(

Can you be a bit more specific? I've tried using Rio Music Manager to copy files from the player with no luck so far.

You must use the music transfer software that came with the CD (also avail on Rio website) - which will not load on newer, Vista running computers.

How do you put music on a usb flash drive from your home computer

Insert the USB pendrive into the USB port of your PC. Now it will be detected and seen as you open MY COMPUTER as a new drive.
Now open the music files you wish to trasfer to the drive , use your mouse to click and COPY , then open the drive and use the mouse to click and PASTE.
In this manner you can trasfer.
Also you can use the send in the link to directly send to the drive.

I'm transferring files and after a few files are transferred, maybe a gig. The transfer gets hung up and when I push the try again button, it freeze explorer. This happened when I first bought the item...

It sounds like your transfer is hanging up in the middle, if you are transferring over a network (without wires) you are loosing your connection. I would recommend that you try and transfer a small amount of the files at a time instead of many gigabytes. If you are transferring in the above manner, I would strongly recommend that you try and connect your device directly to the computer you are transferring from. If it is connected and you keep dropping connection. It may be some kind of RAM (random access memory) shortage in your transfer PC or a problem in the connecting wire. I would try transferring from another PC so that you can isolate the problem. If the connection keeps getting lost it may be a problem with your my book.

How do i transfer musics from pc to iphone? i failed to transfer it by using itunes lol. it says sync failed

I know a software Syncios is much more better than iTunes, which not only supports transferring music between PC and iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, but also transferring other data, like photos, videos, movies, contacts, messages, podcasts, ebooks, apps, notes and bookmarks.

My Canon FS200 DVC isn't transferring files

Hi mate, I had same problem as you, took the cam into store and teh guy helped me out.

Make sure you get the recharger for the camcorder, then plug it into teh camcorder and also to the wall power when you are uploading the files. It can needs an extra power boost to get the files onto your computer.

- so plug in your camcorder to computer
- also plug in the battery recharger cord to the camcorder

Should work fine!!

Carbon Pearl: Invalid Argument

Try accessing the rio's hard drive through my computer to see if it can find the songs: they will be in a folder aptly called music within your rio carbon.

If this doesn't help then if it is picked up via my computer you could try wiping and rebooting your rio, read:

You may have to change the firmware for the rio carbon pearl but this is easy to find on their website.

Hope this helps,
