RCA Lyra MP3 Mc5 series

My son's Mp3 shows a boot error then shuts off.

Should/can I reformat it? If I can, then what?


I have already backed up the music & data to my laptop.


(I am sick of going back to the store)

Fed up Mom.

Re: RCA Lyra MP3 Mc5 series

I had this problem on mine, came to this hoping for an anwer but i saw no one had one so i decided to take a risk. Turns out that all I had to do was connect it to my computer (windows vista, haven't tested under othe OS's) open it, select "Internal MEmory", right click, and choose reformat. After that it worked fine

Hope this helps,

"Boot Error, Sutting Down"

You may have let a magnet get near the mp3 player. Go to "My Computer" Then double click on the Mp3 player. You will see "Internal Storage" Icon. Right click it and click format. You will lose all data on the device. Also upgrading to 3.003 does not fix the Boot error problem.

It is easier to reformat the mp3 player. When the mp3 is plugged in to the PC, go to my computer, the double click the mp3 player there. You will see internal storage, right click that and click format. You will lose all the stuff on the mp3 player.

Had same issue with mine, right out of the box!  I called support, they sent me to some 3rd party support company...  That place told me to return to vendor.   Thompson Support.  They basically just tried going to the RCA website, found nothing there, and finished up with return to store...
