What I would recommend you to do is to plug in your device to your computer and format it..There might be some files that are corrupted..Formatting the device will delete all the songs you have in your device...After you format it, your problems should solve... I hope that helps Thank you
if you can´t in windows ,try on ms-dos, i have TH1100A model ,when i have a problem like corrupt files or virus ,i format on ms-dos and my mp3 work again. i hope this help you ,
PS. sorry for my bad english.
Have you tried formatting the player as if it were a drive? Hit the windows start button at lower left of screen, then my computer. The Pearl should show up as a drive , would maybe look something like the following: Pearl:F or RCA:H. Right click with mouse and format drive/player should be an option. That should do the trick. However, you may want to consult your manual for formatting instructions as this can sometimes corrupt the player if not formatted correctly.
There are two possibilities - corrupt DB or songs in wrong format.
If it is a corrupt DB, then go to RCA's website for the latest firmware upgrade.
Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format
Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.
