Connect you MP3 player to your Computer/Laptop and see if you have any .MP3 or .WMA music files: if you have none, or the files format/encoding are not compatible, the player will say 'file not found' !
In any case, try resetting your MP3 player (look in your manual, but it is usually hold the software controlled on/off button in the OFF position for 15+ seconds before releasing it to the neutral position). As a last resource, also reformat your 'flash' drive in your MP3 player using Windows format function or a Flash drive utility.
The dreaded "File System Corrupted" error is one that comes time and time again. Did you drop the player or hit it by accident?
If so, then the pin connecting the battery to the micro hard drive has probably been disconnected.
You can removed the back of the player with a screwdriver, but you risk tearing off the S/N sticker.
If you decided to do it anyway, remove the back of the player and then simply fit the multi-pin connector back into the hard drive. Replace the back and screw it in, and then turn it on to see if it works.
I did this with my old RD2762A, and it worked like a charm.
Hope this helps!
Your problem is MusicMatch. In the RCA manual, which is found on the CD or online (nothing is printed), it refers you to the MusicMatch software to learn how to create M3U playlists. Someone at RCA didn't talk to MusicMatch before making this claim. The MusicMatch software makes a mess of the files and never saves a playlist properly. You can devise a process using WinAmp which would probably work with Musicmatch, but I prefer WinAmp. Here's the process:
Rip your CDs, download from the internet, and transfer the files to the RD2850 while the Lyra is connected as a hard drive. The files are
stored in the /MUSIC directory. I suggest you organize your albums like this /MUSIC//
If the artists you listen to have multiple albums, a structured approach is useful. The Lyra can sort the files by Artist and Album automatically if the tags are available, meaning a structured directory approach is unnecessary, but it makes it easier if you want to take the files off the Lyra in the future.
Once the files are on the Lyra, use WinAmp to open those file FROM THE LYRA.
This is important since the playlist will specify the relative path of the MP3 files and the Lyra expects the playlists in a directory other than where your music files are.
With WinAmp open, press L to open the file selection dialog and navigate to the directory with the album, or music. Select the songs, press Open.
Open the Playlist Editor (ALT+E)
Arrange the songs
Save the songs with the List Opts button found at the bottom right of the screen. Chose Save List. A dialog will open asking you where to save the list.
Save the list in the /lyra_playlists directory from the root of the drive. Now, the Lyra needs to be updated. This is called "Profiling". The included software has a utility to do this from Windows, or you can do this from the Lyra itself. The manual states if you have over 2500 files, it is best to do this from Windows. But, after changing anything on the Lyra, you must "Profile" the device.
You will now see your playlist in the Playlist menu item on the main screen.
