When I switch my Thomson 2GB mp3 player on, the word 'Thomson' appears on the screen and instead of showing the menu, the mp3 player switches off by itself. is my mp3 player corrupted? Darryl


the answer is yes. Your mp3 player is corrupted. It must have gotten virus from the computer you used in download songs to it.

The start-up files of the OS (Operating system) of your player is corrupted.

To fix this, you need to do a firmware update. The previous version will be deleted and a newer one will be installed. By so doing, your player will be back to normal.

Good luck.

My Archos 5 is displaying a Code 101 error message. How can i fix that? I can't get to go past this message?

Your system is somehow corrupted, could be music downloaded from the net, whatever it is easy fixable.

A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 5 or 7:
1- Plug the unit to you computer via the USB cable.
2- The unit should start automatically and open the following page:
3- From the recovery console (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the volume control on the right of the unit (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" press the on and off button, shortly to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" but it is already plugged from point 1 - DO NOT press anything anymore on the Archos
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 5 or 7
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the USB cable until the process is finished
4- when done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!

RCA LYRA RD2762B (4 GB ) MP3 Player

I had same issue and found a law office that filed a class action against RCA/Thompson. Here is the result:

Thank you for contacting David P. Meyer & Associates Co., LPA about the action our law firm filed against Thomson regarding RCA mp3 players. The matter was settled on behalf of the individual Plaintiff and the lawsuit was dismissed on October 10, 2007.

If you have a hard disk drive player that is experiencing a file error corrupt or similar error and you meet certain requirements, you may be entitled to a replacement unit at no cost to you. You must contact Thomson at 1-800-587-5518 no later than December 31, 2007.

Very loud noise / Corrupt files on PNY Vibe

According to page 15 of the Vibe manual, "When formatting in Windows XP, if File System is FAT32 or NTFS, VIBE does not work." Step 2 under "Formatting VIBE" states: "After setting File system to FAT, press Start button to format." Don't know if this helps, but, if so, you might want to download the manual from support at Sanddollar
