Question about RCA Lyra RD2763 MP3 Player

1 Answer

System file corrupted

When I turn on my mp3 player it says that the file system is corrupted what should I do? My player is the RD2763FMA Lyra. The suggested solution did not help. I did get the computer to recognize that something was hooked up, but Windows Media player does not. It went through the connecting, transferring and safe to disconnect screens, but then when I turned it off/on, it went to the File system corrupted again. I never did get any usable response from the thing. Oh, it did charge it up x

Re: system file corrupted

I actually fixed this!!! Mine had been giving me the "file system corrupted" error. So, I opened it up (unscrew the screw on the back, pry the back cover off with a small flat head screwdriver or a key, etc.) and saw that the connector between the CF drive and the motherboard had come apart.

I re-inserted the cable into the groove of the connector on the motherboard, pushed the broken/separated piece of plastic that serves as a retainer for the cable back down, held it in place, and taped it down with a 1/4 inch wide strip of duct tape (taped all the way around the connector/cable to help keep it in). I put the Lyra back together and then turned it on... and it WORKED! It came right on into the normal menu! Yay!

Good luck other people, I hope that this is the same thing that happened to your player and that you can also fix it! =)

Mp3 wont work

If the file system is corrupted, you have put files into the wrong folders.
To fix it, simply copy over all of your files from the mp3 player to your computer, format the mp3 player, then synch the files back onto it.

System file corrupted

Have you tried replacing your firmware? I believe the firmware for that model is here but you may can get a newer version from rca's support site.

I don't know exactly which model of the Thomson Lyra you have, but you can visit the Support page on their website, find your particular player model, and download software updates that might help solve this problem.
