Re: rca mp3 player wont connect to computer

You can easily download the software by visiting the samsung website - and going to their support/download page.

The most common faults with this player are

1. The touchpad fails

2. The USB part of the device fails.

These are hardware faults and cannot be rectified other than replacing 1. the touchpad and with 2. the whole unit.

Makje sure you have loaded the software correctly first of all and have restarted your computer.

If you cannot see the player in windows explorer then most likely it is the usb hardware problem.

I just bought a riptunes mp3 digital media player. I tried to connect the device to my computer and am getting a message that no driver is found. After troubleshooting on my computer, I was not able t

Your Computer SHOULDl recognise the player as a USB drive automatically
as below.
Manual. download here.

'Connecting the Player to the USB port of your computer

• Connect the player to your PC as shown.
• The player will turn on automatically and display "USB connected" on the display. The player will appear as a drive letter on your computer, a Mass Storage Class (MSC) device, and behave as a detachable drive for file transfer in one or both directions.
• The RCA easyRip Media Software installer is stored in the player, go to MyComputerin the Start menu, find and open the drive letter associated with the player (i.e. LYRA) and then double-click the
rcaeasyrip_setup file to launch the installer.
• The software installer can be deleted from the player after installation to free up more storage spaces.
• It might take several seconds for the player to be detected. Click
Refresh in My Computer or Windows Explorer to make sure the player has been detected.

Don't disconnect the USB cable to the PC or the player during the software installation'

I just bought a RCA M4304 and when plugginh it into hte computer for the first time it shows nothing. No initializing

Sounds like there is an issue with the firmware. Download the firmware install from here:

Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.

If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds. If that does not work then it is likely the player is unrecoverable.

The OS on your computer is probably not compatible - check the specs in the manual for details.
