What do I do when the "USB connected; battery full" message stays on the screen after downloading songs (and the USB isn't connected)? Nothing moves when I press any button. What does the reset button do? (I haven't pressed it yet for fear of losing everything)
Well, I have a RCA Lyra too, and I pretty much have to reset it everyday. It doesn't delete my songs, but it may depend on what model you have. (Mine is a MC2601.)Reseting it is probably your best bet...I guess just cross your fingers and hope it doesn't delete your songs. Good luck =)

You will be able to restore the functionality of you Lyra after you reinstall the firmware you can download from the manufacturers website. This is a very common problem for mp3 players.
Here are the instructions once you have downloaded the file.
FIRMWARE UPGRADE STEPS
We highly recommend you do not connect your player to the computer until Step 3.
Locate the downloaded RD2010/11/12/15 upgrade file and double click it.
Following the onscreen instructions, allow the program to
completely install all USB drivers (Windows 98SE and Windows ME) as
well as the upgrade program and firmware. You may be required to reboot
once the install is complete.
Connect your RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015 to the PC using the USB cable.
From the “Start” menu, select “Programs” > “Lyra™ Personal Audio
Player” > “RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015” > “Update Device.”
After the program is finished searching for the device, drivers and
new hardware may be detected and installed. Then the “Update Lyra™
(RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015) Device” box will pop up with current
version and new version (1.51) of firmware shown.
Press “Start” to update the firmware of your Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011,
RD2012, RD2015. Depending on your existing firmware version, the
Upgrader might show an option for formatting the device. Click “Yes” to
When the update is complete, click “Close.” If present, use the
Windows system tray icon to safely disconnect the Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011,
RD2012, RD2015 and unplug it from the USB cable.
Your update is now complete.
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
connect it to PC and then open Windows Explorer and search for the drive letter that Windows automatically assigned to be your Lyra player. Click on that and look for any folders. Open the song folder (if exists) and then mouse drag your pc song files into this folder. Disconnect USB cable and your songs should be on the LYRA.
When the unit is connected to the
computer, ?USB Connected? will be
displayed on the screen.
During transfer, ?USB Transfer ...? flashes
on the display. When the transfer is
complete, the display will change to "USB
Connected". Do not unplug the USB cable
when the display is flashing.
Also, check to see if the mp3 file(s) you're transferring is between 32 to 320 kbps. You may need to reinstall the USB driver for this device.

You have to subscribe to be able to play any tracks downloaded from URGE or REAL or anyplace like that. Once the trial is up you have to pay to be able to hear them. I found out after spending days filling my player full of music. I ended up deleting all and transferring tracks from CD's or actually paying to download tracks.
