Question about RCA RTD255 System

8 Answers

IPOD does not work in USB

We have the RTD215 for our daughter and the USB port says "loading" but then displays "No File". It states on the box that it is iPOD ready. Need help before I look even more stupid in front of my daughter please.I have similar problem. I have RTD215 also. My Sansa Express will not work in the USB Port. I was careful to make sure the Express was in MSC/USB mode. When I plug it in, the Sansa says "reading", reading reading, but gets stuck there, and locks up the system, till the batteries run down, and I have to charge and reload it. I tried doing it with both the adapter cable which came with the Sansa, and by plugging the Sansa Express directly into the USB port. The message on the monitor receiving the RTD215 input variously returns messages "Loading..." and "No USB detected." If anyone has any ideas on fix or work around, much appreciated.

    The purported solution was completely non-responsive. We are not talking about computer system compatibility. We are talking about compatibility between the RCA DVD/CD player's USB port and the MP3 player. All devises involved have been specifically described.

  • Cd123456789 Jan 11, 2009

    Again, the new posted solution is nonresponsive, and generic at best. We are talking about a home entertainment unit (RCA), which has a built in USB drive with no ability to download to as far as i am aware. I thought USB ports were supposed to be pretty generic things. You are not addressing the specific components involved, which have been identified.

  • Cd123456789 Jan 11, 2009

    Sorry, but somehow my query, got tagged with the query from the lady with the iPOD, tho we had similar problems - inaiblity of the RCA unit to read the MP3 players. My MP3 players are specifically identified - eg. Sansa Express

    I am not sure about your proposed hard reset solution. If you are addressing the lady with the iPOD, fine. But I have the Sansa, for which your hard reset instructions are off. I have essentailly done a hard reset on the Sansa, taking everything off, clearning/scrubbing, reformating, etc., and the problem remained the same.

Update the firmware......


Follow the diagnostics :)

1. I assume you are using a USB Port to connect the device?
--Yes - Continue - If No, please specify connection method

2. Does using another USB Port on the PC make any difference?
--No - Continue - If Yes, that port on the PC is not functioning.

3. Are other USB devices that you plug into the PC detected?
--Yes - Continue - If No - the USB system on the PC is not functioning - upgrading or reinstalling the driver might work if it is not a hardware malfunction.

4. Did you install any type of driver for the Sandisk mp3 player?
--No- Continue - If Yes - uninstall and reinstall the driver.

5. Do you have another USB cable to try with the device?
-- If No, try another PC.


Thanks,

    If u r using vista, u might face this error....



    In this case,





    *If the procedure below does not work then that's the time you delete the

    INFCACHE.1 (or it's backup), not restored. Deleting the INFCACHE.1

    immediately might give you this error message, "Destination folder access

    denied".

    1. Locate the file INFCACHE.1 in C:\Windows\inf

    2. Right click on the INFCACHE.1 file, select Properties >Security >

    Edit, and give
    your account full control.

    3. Delete INFCACHE.1, or rename it to INFCACHE.1.BAK or temporarily move

    to your desktop.

    4. Reboot the computer....





    However, i hope u wld be able to recognize the error using mah first reply.

The RTD215 is IPOD ready, unfortunately this does not mean it comes with everything needed to connect your IPOD. To play from the IPOD to the stereo will require an optional IPOD dock. Using the USB connection, you would be able to rip CD's from the stereo to the IPOD, but this connection will not work to play from the IPOD to the stereo.

The terminology ready is really misleading, but technically accurate. It will play from an IPOD, just doesn't come with the necessary dock.

    This is the same issue with your Sansa. You should be able to burn CD's from the stereo to the Sansa, but this stereo is no Sansa compatible, there is no way to play from the Sansa to the stereo with this system.

Before plugging the ipod you need to install itunes.

Try unplugging the Ipod, then downloading and installing itunes again, before plugging in the ipod.

    Sometimes USB ports do not work well because of elecrosttic charges problem. To fisx that , cut the power to RCA DVD/CD unit for fifteen or twenty minutes.

    May look silly, but give it a try.

Welcome to Fixya! Sounds like you need some Drivers. You will have to go to the Manufacturers Website and Download USB Drivers for this Model. Downloading I-Tunes for Windows would help you too. Let me know what happens!

If you are having problems with two different usb devices on the same computer it sounds like you need to update the drivers for the usb ports. We need to know what kind of computer you have and what operating system you are running on it.

Usb connection for ipod


Do other devices work in the same USB ports? Does the iPod show up on a different computer? Have you tried different cables? Does it still charge?

Try that first. If not, you can do a reset by holding the top of the click wheel and the centre button. You can also try resetting it in menu.

Beyond that it sounds like warranty time.

Why does my iPod appears on my computer but not in iTunes?


Laptop or portable connecting via USB? "See iPod not recognized when connected to Windows laptop over USB for more information. Your computer doesn't meet iPod system requirements Make sure that your computer meets the system requirements to use iPod for Windows. Your iPod displays an exclamation point folder or sad iPod icon, or doesn't appear in iTunes or My Computer If your iPod displays a folder with an exclamation point icon or a sad (unhappy) iPod icon on its screen, or if your iPod doesn't appear in iTunes or My Computer, follow these instructions to resolve the issue. Your iPod isn't formatted for Windows iPod for Windows Software only recognizes iPod for Windows. You cannot use iPod for Macintosh with a Windows PC. To see which platform your iPod is formatted for, follow these instructions. Your iPod isn't connected to a high-power USB port If you're connecting an iPod, iPod mini, or iPod shuffle to your Windows computer, make sure that you're connecting it to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer (not a low-power one such as the USB port on your keyboard or bus-powered USB hub). Typically, USB 2.0 high-power ports are located directly on your computer. Try connecting your iPod to another USB port on the computer (or to a self-powered USB 2.0 hub that's connected to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer) if the computer still doesn't recognize your iPod. Alternatively, if your computer has a FireWire connection, try using that instead. If you're connecting an iPod, iPod mini, or iPod shuffle to a Windows laptop computer through USB, connect the laptop to a power outlet before connecting your iPod. You're not using a WHQL-certified IEEE 1394 card If you have a FireWire (IEEE 1394) card installed in your computer and are using it to connect your iPod, make sure that the card is Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certified. If it isn't, your iPod may not be recognized, or you may not be able to send music to the iPod. If you're not sure about your card's WHQL certification, check the inbox material that came with your FireWire card or contact the card's manufacturer. You can view a list of WHQL-certified cards on the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website. To view this: Go to the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website. Enter All Products in the ""Search for"" field. From the Product Categories pop-up menu, choose 1394 Controller. Click the Search Now button.

You can also check the list of recommended FireWire and USB cards that have been tested by Apple with iPod and Windows XP.

To rule out an issue with your FireWire card, try connecting a different FireWire device to the card to see if your computer recognizes it. Your connections aren't secure Make sure that there i
