Question about Rio Sport S35S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Transfer pending, but won't start transferring

When I add tracks to the Rio S35S, next to them it says ?Transfer Pending? but the transfer never starts. My battery was half gone, so I changed to a brand new fresh battery, and the tracks still won?t transfer (even though it says they are ?transfer pending?). Can anyone help?

Important: Make sure that you have installed the Windows Media Player 11 software provided in the accompanying CD for music and picture transfer.

When I transfer music from Rio Music manager to my Rio Carbon the music manager indicates transfer successful but the MP3 player states no tracks present?

Try to transfer the tracks from the explorer.
1 Connect the Rio Carbon to a computer using the supplied USB cable.
2 Double-click My Computer on the Windows Desktop or in the Start Menu.
3 Locate MP3 or WMA audio files on the computer.
4 Highlight files and/or folders to transfer to the Rio Carbon.
5 Click Edit.
6 Click Copy.
7 Double-click My Computer on the Windows Desktop or in the Start Menu to open another window.
8 In the new window, locate the Rio Carbon (X:) icon that is associated with the Rio Carbon. (X equals the drive
letter assigned to the Rio Carbon.)
9 Double-click Rio Carbon (X:).
10Click Edit.
11Click Paste.

Can't transfer to computer

With this player, you MUST use the native Rio music transfer software - still available on rio's website. No other transfer method works.
