Every time I try to transfer music from my computer to my rio karma, it begins to transfer the files and then within the first track is says " Failed to Transfer- Unspecified Error" and gives the options of: continue or cancel. Either option causes the rio to go idle. So, basically I can't get any music onto my rio. How can I fix this?

Hi. I use this adapter for RCA Lyra MP3 players and it could be the same for your Rio Karma. To be sure that it is a mini IDE connector, open the karma up by going here http://www.takeitapart.net/archives/rio-karma/ and if it is a mini IDE then you can go to Ebay and search for item # 230283935161. I hope this helps.
It could be that the 3.5 millimeter connection on the player is becoming loose from its connection on the internal board. When it does this, try wiggling the plug to see if it changes anything (if the sound fades in and out then it is definitely a loose connection and sodering will be needed). Also, try changing the playback options in the menu...you can change the equalizer presets to Rock, Jazz, Classic, Vocal, etc..
Files can be copied to the computer from the karma although it doesn't work all that well. You'll need to use Rio Taxi. I think you can get that if you connect the karma to your network using the dock then browse to the karma's ip address and get it. If not you may have to try and find a place to download it.
When Microsoft initiated the DRM system, any Rio Carbon that was hooked into Windows Media Player had the previously working files invalidated. Happened to me as well. The player lasted me three years, and that is about as long as any Mp3 player is going to last we are finding out b/c of all the software snafus.
