Re: curtis mp3 player

I think you are going to have to connect the Player up to your PC via it's USB cable and then possibly repartition and reformat.. Do you have the, any? software that came with ya player installed on ya PC? If so often all "Utilities" to do this are included. Here is a link to the Curtis web troubleshooting I am sure ya will find help there too.

On my rca pm3 player it is stuck on initializing it will not turn off by pressing the turn off button

I have not tried this yet but RCA support sent me this.

I suggest updating the firmware on your player. After upgrading the firmware on your player, you must use the easy rip software. This will avoid problems in the future and keep the unit updated

1. Go to
2. Go to FAQ’s in search enter M4204
3. Download firmware upgrade
4. Hold play/pause button for 15 seconds
5. Hold menu button for 10 seconds
6. Attach M4204 via USB cable while holding play/pause button
7. This should start the firmware upgrade
8. Possible an error message of “cant write to disk” will pop up
9. Firmware upgrade will end with error do not close
10. Go to My Computer find the drive that holds the MP3 player
11. Right click scroll down to format, format the player
12. Run firmware upgrade again

Curtis mp3 1 gb cannot figure out how to delete playlist and enter new one

Get English manual from: - make sure it says EN, not FR

Use windows media player to delete songs

The play button is the on/off button on this player - hold it in for 3-7 secs, and it will shut off.
