Question about RCA TH1101 MP3 Player

1 Answer

RCA TH1100 I have been using my MP3 for weeks now. Yesterday, I plug it up to my computer like normal and the player automatically comes and starts playing songs. It is as if the player is not connecting to the computer (normally the USB connector prompt would come on). what do I do?

This question is listed under the wrong device, but:
Here's what happened: When you first synced your player to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected, Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the player. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the player automatically. It will even delete songs from your player that were on there before.

Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your player connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding/deleting songs/files you don't want into your player.

Just got the RCA TH1101


RCA TH1100 Series:
RCA TH1100 Series:
Remove and reinsert batteries - if that fails, go to RCA website for firmware upgrade - if that fails:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If that fails, it's dead.
