Good Day, FAT (not fat like you think, FAT means File Allocation Table). That means its corrupted, can be fixed by formatiing. Over a period of time your info can get corrupt from transering music back and forth. To format plug it in to usb. Go to my computer It shows up as a removably disc, usually drive f: Right click on drive f: (or the approriate drive) and click format. Let me know what happens, you will have reload the player, also try bypassing the software you are using to tranfer, by opening up drive f: and clicking and dragging your music into it , or you can copy and paste it into drive f: L8R

RCA H100A reading fat error, computer not recognizeing the player F5 will not refresh. Ditto from above...that's what I get for going cheap, I guess! RCA H100A reading FAT error!

i believe that is a formating error basically telling you the player need to be reformatted and then you will have to reload all music on it. i dont have this particular player. i am just going by best guesstimate. dont hold me to it contact the manufactures website and they should be able to provide more details.

After charging RCA H106A, cuts on but screen reads "FAT error, please connect to UMS device". Will not play any music, nor bring regular menu to screen. How can I fix this? Thanks. EddieB

I could not find a way to fix it, it was basically dead to me. I had the same problem on my h104 one, so I just called up RCA and sent my player to them and then they just sent me the h106.

Usually, RCA has THE BEST manuals of any manufacturer, but this one IS a little lazy. Your question is way too broad for us to answer here - give us a specific question and we can answer you. If you want to know how to transfer music files to this player, use Windows Media Player - version 11 is the current version rather than the version 9 that RCA's describes in their manual for this OBSOLETE mp3 player. Microsoft's website has help VIDEOS that will show you exactly how to do this - go to, and enter in the keyword: "transfer music Windows Media Player 11" - the videos are only, about 5 minutes long and they are very good

RCA H100 MP3

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

This may sound stupid but, it worked. I dropped it from about two feet onto our kitchen floor and it turned on. I am sorry if it makes it worse... but what do you have to lose
