No recognition in music manager

I have two different Rio Sport models. I have an SE510 and a 256 with an external memory card. The problem is that the software for the 256 overides the software for the 510 and wont let music manager recognize it. I have found a way to load it by drag and droppin outside of music manager but in comparison it is a pain in the butt. Thank you for any help you might be able to give. Tom

My Rio Sport S35S MP3 player has a Rio 32 MB multimedia card in it, and whenever I take the card out and put it in my laptop to add music to it, I sync, add, take it out, put it back in the MP3 player, and...

There is a possibility that the format may be different then the MP3 Player. You may need to connect the MP3 directly to the computer in order to transfer the files.

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?

Press the MENU and turn it on, as soon as the word RIO shows on the screen release the power button but do not release the MENU button until it says upgrading
Plug the USB cord to it and install Rio Forge Firmware_120
Turn the mp3 off then on normally
Put the music back on your mp3 and it SHOULD be fixed. but your music will be gone..

hope this helps,
