Chances are at some point the settings.dat file on the device has been deleted, either by file operation or by formatting. This file holds basic information about the filesystem, and can sometimes be restored by a factory reset of the device. On others, your player is now at best a usb flash storage drive.

My rca m4304-A mp3 player says profiling requires 20mb free space shutting down and then when i try to hook it up to the computer it will not show that it is hooked to the computer and goes off


Restoring RCA M4304A Recorder Firmware

Symtom: recorder shows OPAL splash screen, then shows "profiling requires20mb of free space, shutting down" and then shuts down. Recorder cannot be accessed by windows or the RCA easyrip software.

Solution: Use the firmware update found here: http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/downloads/OPAL_066F_85A4_85A5_0_1140_SIG.EXE

This update needs to be ran on an xp computer running 32 bitOS. It was tested in a Win 7 64bitmachine and proven to not work.


Necessary steps taken to get the firmware to properlyrestore were as follows:

1. Hold in the power (menu) button for 10 seconds(the splash screen will show and it will give the error message, ignore it)

2. While still holding the power button, press theplay/pause button and hold down.

3. Release the power button while still holdingdown the play/pause button and wait 5 seconds.

4. While still holding the play/pause button plugin the usb cable to the recorder. Continue to hold the play/pause button foranother 5 seconds after plugging the cable in.

5. Release the play pause button then launch theEXE for the firmware update. Minimize the instruction screen so you can see thefull update screen.

6. Leave the format checkbox checked (check it ifit isn't checked) formatting is crucial to this working.

7. Once the status in the update window changesfrom initializing to ready click start to update the recorder. It will go through formatting, then updating.

8. Once the status shows complete disconnect therecorder and with any luck the recorder is usable again. The media files will obviously have to bereloaded, but the recording is functional at least.

Won't Import MP3's From Computer


Try this...Push a pin into the reset hole at the bottom of the player while at the same time holding down the play and power buttons. Next on the recovery screen that shows up, run the ":clean-ip" function. Then try again to import the music files.

File error


What's the music format of the songs that you placed on your mp3 player? Some MP3 Players only capable of playing song files with .mp3 extension and are incapable of playing other music format like wav, wma, etc. Check also the contents of the player for corrupted files and foreign files. Some viruses from a computer could affect the performance of your mp3 player.

Format error


When you get the format error there is a couple of things you can do first try this if it has been reformatted and there isn’t any files on it get the sonic stage installer online somewhere not sure where run that and follow its prompts and when this is finished it should put the correct software onto the player which you can open to see if it is there. Then disconnect the player from your computer and hold down the search button for about half a second when the player is in stop mode rotate the switch at the top of the player till you get “advanced menu” and then press the play button to select it and rotate the switch again till you have “format” and press the play button to select formatting will blink and start formatting when finished complete comes up press the search button to get out of it and back to the main menu and hopefully it will work now!!! It worked for me anyways and couldn’t find a simple answer online so I said id throw this up there!!! Hope it works for yee too!!!

Audiophase KZIII 1GB not being recognize or working


Ok for the KZ111 and KZ100 audiophase. turn the mp3 player on. then plug it into the computer. the player will start charging. Go to windows explorer or my computer and you will see it listed as a hard drive. Create a folder called music. you can then drag and drop mp3 files into the music folder. As for charging the battery my Motorola V170 cell phone has a usb charger. I use it to charge my mp3 player takes about 20 minutes. and the charger in my car for the phone works too. Hope this helps.
