Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

RCA Pearl Mp3 Player says corrupted.

Today I went to play some songs on my mp3 player, and it showed that about 80 or so of them had been deleted. The remaining songs either play fine, skip as if I were fast fowarding through the song, or don't play at all. When I tried to plug it into the computer, the computer does not read that I have plugged the device in, and says that there is something corrupted or unreadable on the file.
This is the second time something like this has happened to me with an mp3 player in general. It stops working in some way, then the computer fails to read the device.

Could you please give me some advice as to what I could do to fix or alter something on the player in some way. I would re-format everything, but this player does not have that option, or at least it is not known to me.

Click this link to go to the RCA support page. Under the light bulb, click "For TH1102 click here". This will download the firmware for your Pearl. Plug in your mp3 player and run the file. This will delete any songs or data currently on your mp3 player so back up your songs if you can.

Either the DB is corrupt of the license on the songs expired - make sure the music service is completely up to date. If it is, then go to RCA's website and get the latest firmware update.

MP3 Player wont play

I've found out how to help this problem. What you have to do is re-download the firmware and reformat the data area.

Download from this site:
(If this doesn't autolink, copy and paste it in your browser's address bar.)

And when you run it, click the checkbox for "Format Data Area." When the message comes up saying you want to delete all the files, click "yes-" it's worth deleting all your songs if it works properly afterwards. You'll have to re-sync your songs and the downloads take forever, but it works.

Deleting music files

you should be able to explore your mp3 player in my computer, and explore each folder but when the windows are open click at the top files, options, view and select show hidden files as the mp3 songs already on the player may be hidden.
