    I've installed the 1.8 and 2.0 firmwares several times in my RCA TH1101A and i still get the same message that the drive is corrupted or unreadable. I got this message initially when I bought the item and returned it. I don't want to go to Wal-Mart again for returning of this item, I don't even have a receipt anymore.

    Yup, I have the problem with mine, i put 147 music files on it but I lent it to a friend and when i got it back he said it "Just died" so i looked at it and it said that there were only 27 songs on the whole thing but i couldnt play any of them except for "Incredible" by OK GO because they were al corrupt and glitchy. so when i pluged it into my computer it said
    "All files on J:/ Drive are either missing or corrupt, Files cannot be played."

Accidental Rockbox file deletion

You will have to find someone with the same make/model and copy there files over to yours. This sadly is the only way to fix it.

Where does a deleted file go? any chance for recovery?

You are going to have to start again, first connect the unit to your computer copy anything you want to save piccys movies and stuff but not the corrupted music files, Format the drive, then goto download the driver files and re-install to the PVR, then copy all your mp3 files back.........

File Corruption

You can try reformatting your player, which would free up nearly all of your disc space and get rid of any files you don't want. But, remember that the Lyra has system files that it needs in order to run. The reformatting won't get rid of those, and I wouldn't recommend trying to delete them manually. Hope this helps!
