You may have let a magnet get near the mp3 player. Go to "My Computer" Then double click on the Mp3 player. You will see "Internal Storage" Icon. Right click it and click format. You will lose all data on the device. Also upgrading to 3.003 does not fix the Boot error problem.

I have the same player. The player uses the basic drag and drop transfer. after you've converted the video, go to the file the video is in, and drag it on to your mp3 player. it should work.

Had same issue with mine, right out of the box!  I called support, they sent me to some 3rd party support company...  That place told me to return to vendor.   Thompson Support.  They basically just tried going to the RCA website, found nothing there, and finished up with return to store...

connect lyra to computer
go to my computer on your start menu
lyra will show up on other devices or portable devices
double click on the lyra icon
this will bring up another lyra icon right click on that
go down to the option format and select that
you will lose all of your music
solved my problem two hours after it started
