Re: hi

To fix this you need to format the device(all stored music will be lost). To do so plug the unit into your usb port. Got to my computer and it should up as a removable disc usually comes up as drive F:, right click the icon and hit format. Usually magnetic interference can cause this problem, did you have it to close to any speakers or sub-woofers? Any magnets that get into close proximity will do this. Good Luck Hope this helps

Mp3 wont work

If the file system is corrupted, you have put files into the wrong folders.
To fix it, simply copy over all of your files from the mp3 player to your computer, format the mp3 player, then synch the files back onto it.

My RCA LYRa is having issues!!!

Had "File System Corrupt!" message appear on my RCA H115A after a bit over a year. PC wouldn't recognize it, and it wouldn't stay turned on.

Following advice (thanks folks), I uncovered the screw under the barcode and popped the back with the help of my knife. I didn't notice that the connection from the hard drive was loose, but pulled it out, wiped everything off, and reconnected. It worked!

They don't give this at the help desk, but it seems to be a common problem with many models. Looks like the connection isn't very tight.

System file corrupted

I actually fixed this!!! Mine had been giving me the "file system corrupted" error. So, I opened it up (unscrew the screw on the back, pry the back cover off with a small flat head screwdriver or a key, etc.) and saw that the connector between the CF drive and the motherboard had come apart.

I re-inserted the cable into the groove of the connector on the motherboard, pushed the broken/separated piece of plastic that serves as a retainer for the cable back down, held it in place, and taped it down with a 1/4 inch wide strip of duct tape (taped all the way around the connector/cable to help keep it in). I put the Lyra back together and then turned it on... and it WORKED! It came right on into the normal menu! Yay!

Good luck other people, I hope that this is the same thing that happened to your player and that you can also fix it! =)

System file corrupted

Have you tried replacing your firmware? I believe the firmware for that model is here but you may can get a newer version from rca's support site.

File system corrupted

Here is a real answer that may give you some insight. A lyra is a hard drive player and you must treat it like a hard drive. Run a scan disk check or some virus soft ware. Maybe even reformat it and down load and reinstall updates. However, if it is like mine and not allowing you to access anything on it to be able to fix it, then i guess we will have to get another one. RCA is under a new name since a few years ago. The new company is Thompson Inc. These people assumed RCA's name but give **** customer support.
