SOURCE: RIO MP3 PEARL stuck in UPGRADER mode

Your Pearl hard drive is probably broken. This is common because they are fragile. Replacing it is the olny solution if it is broken i'm afraid. Read my post: http://www.fixya.com/support/r590688-replace_broken_hard_drive_in_rio_carbon for more info.

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: acc firmware update problem

Same here, I downloaded the firmware update that should allow aac to play but it's a no go. In my case I'm trying to play itunes (mpeg4) and it wont play. Yes I know this is a mp3 player but that's what I thought the update fixed although I may be mistaken. Funny thing is this, if I turn the volume up and down continually it will let me play the song lol. This whole incompatibility issue has to do with these bully companies blocking users from using other companies with their products (worked for microsoft so why not). Solution for me: buy an ipod.

P.S. In my opinion this is as bad if not worse then the public downloading illegal music. It's just that in this case it's a corporate entity perputrating the offense so don't hold your breath on it being fixed anytime soon.

SOURCE: need aac upgrade firmware

My RCA Pearl gave me the AAC firmware message with some files until I followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when running the firmware update software. The firmware is at http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2556. The instructions say to:

run the firmware update software software,
reset the player by removing the battery or holding the power button for 10s for players with internal batteries,
hold the play button while inserting the unit into usb,
release the button once the software changes from "searching" to "initalizing",
check the box to format the data on the player,
and click start.

When I did this update without formatting, the aac fix did not work. I

Thomson 6717 2gb mp3 player will not play songs loaded onto it it tells me i need AAC upgrade firmware at www.rcaaudiovideo.com and there is no AAC download listed at that website


Firstly, is the Thomson 6717 the same as the RCA Pearl TH1602 ie are they made by the one company under different names for marketing in different countries. If so, go to the following site for a choice of three firmware downloads. Please advise if this works on your Thomson 6717.

My rca mp3 player is not recognized by my computer.


When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1

remove the battery,
start the program,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the 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. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

Need aac upgrade firmware for rca mp3 th1611-a same problem....can't return them, can't fix them....my 2 children are VERY dissapointed as this was their ONLY gift from Santa this year. If anyone can...


There is no AAC firmware upgrade. These players are not compatible with AAC (iTunes) format. Most non-iPod players are incompatible, but there are a few exceptions here and there. The box on the player has to list AAC, and it can't have a proviso attached to the AAC, such as "non-protected" AAC. The cashiers at the places that sell them don't know jack about compatibility, usually.
