Try reistall drivers / software or both included on the CD which cames with the mp3 player. If you have lost the CD you can always reffer to the manufacturer's website.

It might be because you erased the SW in your MP3 (by disconnecting it while loading a file). Look at your user manual to see if this precaution is mentioned.

Not working at all

The clicking noise is a symptom of a damaged hard drive.

This mean that the only solution is to replace the hard drive.

Your best option is to buy a partially working X3000 media player and use its hard drive to fix the one you have, or have somebody in finding the specific 1.8" 20GB hard drive your mp3 player has, but also such person will need the booting and firmware files to put them in the new hard drive, otherwise it won't work.

Have rca lyra mp3 , but on cd with it

If you have Windows XP you need to download Musicmatch Jukebox in order to transfer music. Google it. You will probably have to pay for it. However Musicmatch Jukebox does not work with Windows Vista. If you have Vista, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer music to your Lyra. The Media Player automatically comes with Windows Vista OS. Of course, you need to connect your Lyra to your computer using the proper USB cable, so your computer must have a USB port.

Remember when you format memory like a hard drive you erase everything. Move music to your internal mp3 memory and do a profile - folders should appear. If you have flashed your player with the firmware update you can get 520 songs on the player for both internal and external combined but be warned that if you exceed this count your player will start to forget the earlier loaded songs - listed but not addressable (playable). The same is for the folder count eg. add album = artist + ablum title (min 2 folders). Plus always profile your songs after loading new music or deleting as this is an index build process to play song 152 = title x. This includes accidental radio recordings to MP3s. RD2312 , RD2315, RD2317 Lyra™ mp3 flash player Firmware/Application Upgrade Version 3.11 fixes:
  • Supports a total of 520 songs, in up to 50 folders, with up to 8 levels of subfolders.

Try the reset button on the back of the unit. This requires a pin or pencil point to activate. Note that this player must be disconnected from your computer by following the disconnect instructions in the owner's manual only, you cannot just unplug it.

You can format the MP3 Player which will wipe it completely clean.

go to the command prompt and format the drive C:\format G:

You can do the same thing for the SD card while it's still in the MP3 Player. Just go to My Computer and find out which drive it is located in.

Failed to Load Files

I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player.
Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.
