Question about RCA TH1611 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I lost everything in my root directory!

Hello. I absent-mindedly did not back up the files and folders in my root directory when I upgraded my firmware on my TH1611-A. I have the music folder, but nothing else.

I upgraded because the player shut off and would not come back on (wouldn't even show the "pearl" startup screen.) It's got a new battery and everything. The computer recognizes it, and I can read from it and record to it while it is plugged into the USB port. The pearl icon with the red circle logo doesn't appear with the drive on My Computer anymore.

Now I don't know if it's not coming on because I don't have the root directory files, or if the player just went kaput. Can someone who has these folders and files please email them to me? I asked RCA about where I could download them, and they told me where to get EasyRip. I need more than that!

The upgrade should have put any pretinent files on the device that were needed. The easyRip application will write the necessary files when the transfer of media is done.

In answer to your question specifically...No, the player is not having issues because you don't have the root directory files. I would try re-installing the firmware again.

Jensen MP3 Capacity issue


As the root directory is already full, you will first need to move or delete some files from your root directory before creating new folders in the root directory.
Hope it helps. Let me know how you go.

I'm told the directory or file canot be created when I try to drag a picture to the pandigital folder even though I've already copied about a 100 images using the same method.


I have a Pandigital too and although I don't think the users guide mentions it (major oversight on their part), the root directory on this thing can only hold a limited # of files/folders (mine is limited to 108) If I understant it correctly, it's due to the fact that the pandigital uses a FAT (file allocation table) storage method - not that the reason matters. The solution is: make folders in the root directory (you could have up to 108 folders on my pandigital) and I believe each subfolder can have an unlimited number of files in it. I just call my subfolders "Dec 2009 additions, Jan 2010 additions, etc). The Pandigital will randomly cycle thru files in each of these subfolders just as if they were in the root directory. Hope this helps.

Philips Plasma won't upgrade firmware.


You need to copy the autorun.upg file from the sub folder to the root directory of the zip drive. I had the same problem and it worked after I did this.

No pic folder


Uninstall and reinstall the software for the RCA if you have lost the Pictures folder. It should be in the player already. In Windows XP, picture files should be copied to the “Media” folder of the player for viewing while in Windows 2000, picture files should be copied to the
root directory for viewing.

ROOT


Root Folder/ Directory refers to the main Folder which contains all the important informations and commands your player has. It is similar to your Root Directory in your PC -- Drive C:/ where all the system files are located.

Root Directory includes sub folders such as your player's Master Boot Record (MBR - very crucial, this is the boot operating system), music file directory, audio record directory, data files directory such as organizer and phone directory (if your player has one).

Root Directory is very important for your player's performance as it contains all the valuable informations and commands so your player would run under normal condition. Once everything was erased in that root folder, you'll render your player useless. So be extra careful when you upgrade your player's firmware as this erases all files including those the OPERATING SYSTEM in the root folder.

It is safe however to format within your player as this erases only your data files and music. Just to be sure, avoid formating your player in your PC's MY COMPUTER/ WINDOWS EXPLORER unless it is specified in the users manual.

Luckily, MBR are usually erased when you entered your player's SERVICE MODE and you choose to erase the Firmware using some special keys. So, as long as you're using your player as mentioned in your users manual, you're okay with it. If you doesn't know all about mp3 player repairs or upgrades, leave the SERVICE MODE or PLAYER RECOVERY to the technicians.

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..."
