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.

    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.





    Thanks.

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.

Trying to connect the samsung home theatre model - HT-TP33 wih Apple iPOD nano through USB port. But it shows "No File" and gets disconnected. Kindly suggest how to connect it.


The fact that it shows "No File" would tend to indicate that the unit has been connected but there is no compatible file for it to play. Units like these usually only play MP3 or WMA files. Apple iPods usually store files in AAC format which the unit may not be able to play.

I Need the five digit remote code for a RCA RTD215 DVD player to program into a universal remote


What is the make and model of the universal remote? They each have their own sets of codes, so there's not a code for your DVD that works with all universal remotes.

Post back the make and model info using the "add comment" button, and I'll do my best to look up RCA DVD player codes for it.

Yes there is one available. You need to have Adobe pdf reader installed on your computer to view it. Click here to open. It will take a few minutes to open. If you have a slow internet connection, right-click on the blue link and select save-as. This will download the file to your hard disk and you can view or print it offline.

System doesnt read usb


It can't read an iPod through the usb port, it can only read standard flash drives I think. Using the "Line in" would work better.

Connecting an iPod to a HT-Q100 Home Cinema System


If you connect an iPod via USB, the system will treat it as a hard drive and will use its (very basic) on-screen system to display your tracks.

I found the best way to get a result is to use a 3.5 (stereo) jack to RCA phono stereo input into the auxillary input on the back (side). To hear your iPod, select AUX on your Samsung and then select and play on your iPod. Bobs your uncle!!
