Hello, a while ago I was using my mp3 player, and everything was
perfectly fine, then it just randomly shut down and
upon booting, I receive the message "1 mb free space required for
profiling". Which is awkward considering I had at least 200 MB free at the time. Somehow now it also won't properly stay connected through
USB. It makes it through for about a few seconds, barely enough time to
get to internal storage, then it disconnects. Rinse and repeat over and
Solutions I've tried:
Reset: Yes reset, I know it'll be suggested. Obviously, its the first
thing I tried. No luck. Yes with a non metallic object, a toothpick.
Firmware: I've downloaded the latest firmware. No-go.
Formats: Not an option. As I said earlier, it disconnects itself and
reconnects, there's not enough time for a format to initialize.
Freeing up space by deleting stuff: Same problem as above. Not enough time, deletes won't go through before it disconnects.
Allowing mp3 player to run out of power, and then seeing how things go:
In the process of trying this, I don't expect much luck though.
Any solutions much appreciated, or to the very least to solve the problem of its disconnecting and reconnecting through USB, with that solved I'd at least be able to free up space, or format, and what not.
If you go into the devices menu see if you can get to a different setting for connecting to the computer, for exampl, not a usb setting there is usally another to pick from, see if you have this option.

When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads and find your player and download the firmware and drivers (if needed) upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wmaformat you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).
If you have Windows XP you need to download Musicmatch Jukebox in order to transfer music. Google it. You will probably have to pay for it. However Musicmatch Jukebox does not work with Windows Vista. If you have Vista, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer music to your Lyra. The Media Player automatically comes with Windows Vista OS. Of course, you need to connect your Lyra to your computer using the proper USB cable, so your computer must have a USB port.
Remember when you format memory like a hard drive you erase everything. Move music to your internal mp3 memory and do a profile - folders should appear.
If you have flashed your player with the firmware update you can get 520 songs on the player for both internal and external combined but be warned that if you exceed this count your player will start to forget the earlier loaded songs - listed but not addressable (playable). The same is for the folder count eg. add album = artist + ablum title (min 2 folders). Plus always profile your songs after loading new music or deleting as this is an index build process to play song 152 = title x. This includes accidental radio recordings to MP3s.
RD2312 , RD2315, RD2317 Lyra™ mp3 flash player Firmware/Application Upgrade Version 3.11 fixes:
Supports a total of 520 songs, in up to 50 folders, with up to 8 levels of subfolders.
