Question about Rio Carbon MP3 Player
It tries to turn on I see the RIO on the screen and it doesn't make the regular noise its like a broken re trying noise then it goes to upgrader and I already downloaded like 3 upgraders and i basically took the Rio apart I mean the volume wheel popped out, the power button broke off and the silver thing holding it in came off. So I propped out the back and everything seems fine. grr
U will have broken your hard drive...
try replacing it with CF card
Everybody says that this does not work but it definitely does!
My Rio got dropped and I completely buggered the hard drive so after reading many forums saying that it didn't work I read one that said that someone had told them that sandisk ultra II ones worked (very vague!)
Because I had nothing to lose I went out and bought a 1GB sandisk Ultra II CF card. I then took apart my rio and replaced the hard drive with the CF card. Still not thinking it was going to work I plugged it into my computer and installed the latest firmware (from the rio website) and then HEY PRESTO!!!!!! it works.
I have yet to try an 8GB ultra II card but when I do i will keep you posted.
If you don't believe me then I don't blame you but If you send me a request then I can send you pictures and more details...
Rio will live on
Hope this helps
