You will be able to restore the functionality of you Lyra after you reinstall the firmware you can download from the manufacturers website. This is a very common problem for mp3 players.
Here are the instructions once you have downloaded the file.
FIRMWARE UPGRADE STEPS
We highly recommend you do not connect your player to the computer until Step 3.
Locate the downloaded RD2010/11/12/15 upgrade file and double click it.
Following the onscreen instructions, allow the program to
completely install all USB drivers (Windows 98SE and Windows ME) as
well as the upgrade program and firmware. You may be required to reboot
once the install is complete.
Connect your RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015 to the PC using the USB cable.
From the “Start” menu, select “Programs” > “Lyra™ Personal Audio
Player” > “RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015” > “Update Device.”
After the program is finished searching for the device, drivers and
new hardware may be detected and installed. Then the “Update Lyra™
(RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015) Device” box will pop up with current
version and new version (1.51) of firmware shown.
Press “Start” to update the firmware of your Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011,
RD2012, RD2015. Depending on your existing firmware version, the
Upgrader might show an option for formatting the device. Click “Yes” to
When the update is complete, click “Close.” If present, use the
Windows system tray icon to safely disconnect the Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011,
RD2012, RD2015 and unplug it from the USB cable.
Your update is now complete.
How have you formatted(ntfs/fat/fat32)? Most players use the fat file system, and won't work using ntfs or fat32. Have you wiped the firmware? The firmware is the players operating system and needs to be there to run it. If you run the firmware upgrade program, if you have it, you may be able to recover the player. www.samsung.com try the site for the firmware upgrade program.
remove the battery, start the program, hold the play button while plugging into usb, release the play button when the term "initializing" replaces "searching", click the start button to replace the firmware.
You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. I had to do this twice and format the second time to fix the aac error, but at least I was able to backup my music after the first time.
Try formatting it in FAT 32 or FAT 16, the player sometimes can't read a different filesystem. If that doesn't work, try upgrading the MP3 firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/) Follow the steps carefully or you can render your player useless. After the upgrade, the update program will format the player automatically with the correct filesystem.
What i would recommend you go to do is to format your device using the windows media player and then do a firmware upgrade on the device..the problem you are experiencing right now is because your firmware is corrupted..once you do that should be able to use your device without any problems...

It can also be caused by transferring DRM (Digital Rights Management)
encoded media files via the drag and drop method. It is recommended that
you use the drag and drop method to transfer audio files that are not encoded
with DRM. If in doubt, use either Creative MediaSource Organizer or Windows
Media Player to transfer your files.
To resolve this difficulty, we recommend that you format the player and
transfer the content again. You can also download and install the latest
firmware, and select the Format Data Area option during firmware update.
To format a MuVo player, connect it to a USB port on your PC. Open the Windows
Explorer, and locate the Removable Drive listing and right
click on it. Select Format, and choose FAT instead of FAT32 or NTFS. After
the formatting is complete, make sure that you stop your player before disconnecting
it from your PC (see above)
To update or reload the firmware for a MuVo player, select the model of
your player from below.
This firmware upgrade only works with Creative MuVo Micro N200 players.
Do not install this upgrade to other players.
You will lose all content in your player when you install the firmware.
Back up any audio or data files in your player to your computer before
upgrading the firmware.
Before installing the firmware, please complete the following procedures:
Connect your player to your PC if it is not already connected.
Double click the firmware upgrade file.
When prompted to set your player in Recovery mode, disconnect
your player from your PC.
Remove the battery from the player, press and hold the Play button
while connecting the player to the USB port.
Continue to hold the Play button for about 10 seconds after
your player is connected to the USB port.
When the Find New Hardware dialog box appears on your PC screen,
release the Play button.
If this is the first time a player is installed as Player Recovery
Device, Windows will find a Player Recovery Device (or USB Device),
and prompt you for drivers. Click on No , and select Do
not search. I will choose the driver to install. Windows will install
the necessary drivers automatically.
Double click on the downloaded firmware again (MuVoN200_PCFW_LF_1_20_04.exe)
to update the player's firmware.
During the firmware update process, make sure to check the box next
to Format Data Area under Download options.
