One thing to try would be to copy all the files off your CD ROM onto your C: drive, then run whatever .exe file you're trying to run from the CD itself

RCA Lyra X3000 Burnt out

Your media player needs a professional repair service.

When is use a different power adapter with wrong voltage, the battery charge circuitry is damablowing up on or more internal integrated circuits.

Some times just replacing the damaged devices is necessary, but other times the printed circuit suffer a dmage beyond to be repaired (say that the excessive heat made a hole in the board)

Just a repair center that fixes this RCA model may help you.

Also, you can get your hands in a partially working media player (say a X3000 player with cracked LCD screen) in Ebay, and perfom the repair yourself if you have experience and skills to do it.

RCA repair centers charge $125.00 for such repairs.

Best regards,

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Mine didn't recognize either, so what I did is go into the device manager, find the opal in the listings, double-click, disabled the device, re-enabled it, at which time it shows that there's a firmware error. I then re-installed the driver from the cd, unplugged the opal, plugged it back in, and for whatever reason, the computer then recognized the opal as a mass storage device, instead of a portable music player. The computer now sees it everytime, and all I have to do is drag and drop any files I want into the opal. Works like a charm. Hopefully RCA will provide an updated firmware program in the near future, but this might work for you for now. Good luck!

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpg, the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.

H125PA 5 gig mp3 player problems

This is most likely caused by the Lyra being nearly full.

First try deleting content to free up 15MB of disk space. Then profile the device contents.

If that's not successful, connect the USB cable to the device while pressing the enter button (Play/Pause). Continue to hold the button in until your PC recognizes the device. This will connect the player as a mass storage device with a drive letter in Windows Explorer.
In Windows Explorer, navigate to the drive letter assigned to the Lyra and locate the Lyra_Sys folder. Within that folder you should find the local.lrd file. This contains the information from profiling.
Delete the local.lrd file, then safely disconnect the player from the PC.

The embedded profiler should then work correctly.
