Rio Carbon Files

I feel certain their must be a way to delete the files from my Rio. I can view the files it currently holds, and I can copy files to the Rio, but I'm not having success trying to delete some or all of the Rio's content. I am no longer under warranty. I don't believe the player is damaged in any way. Any ideas??...............thanks, Vicky

How do you restore your carbon back to factory settings? i want to completely delete everything but i don't have the software...i havent for quite awhile. can you restore it just using the device itself?...

You cannot restore the player without a computer but by formatting your drive and re-loading the Rio Carbon Firmware, you can reset it to factory settings.
The Developers cut firmware (latest (unofficial) firmware) is still available here:

You must use the native software - still available on rio's website. No other transfer method will work with this player.

Rio pearl directory corrupted

first, and this is always good: If available, firmware for the Rio Carbon can be downloaded online. Second, this might be the problem: The Rio Carbon communicates with your computer differently in MTP mode than it does in MSC mode. When in MTP mode, the Rio Carbon cannot display hidden files in folders, cannot allow transfers to the root Rio Carbon directory, and cannot allow the creation of new folders. (Folders can be transferred to the Rio Carbon using drag-and-drop and copy-and-paste methods.) To use traditional folder options, change the Transfer Mode settings to put the Rio Carbon in MSC mode. Last, "..Removing the Rio Carbon from a USB connection before Idle is displayed on the screen may result in a corrupting the player's file system. If for any reason you suspect that your Rio player's file system has been corrupted, reformatting the player will restore the file system to its original state..."
