Question about RCA Lyra TH1012 MP3 Player

RCA TH1012 Will Not Play Anything

The player will not play any songs. It shows 24 songs are loaded (on the screen and under my computer). There were 69 a couple of days ago. When you turn it on, it says "001/024" and flashes ONE and CUST over and over. It will not load any new songs. It says the parameter is incorrect. But I don't guess it matters if there are any new songs since it won't work! Can anyone help?

Have an issue with an RCA M4804, having a problem accessing music on the player. Player will play all the files, but will only show 3 folders and their contents when accessed. Will not show other folders...

When your downloading music the mp3 player must completely write the data files completely onto it. Your mp3 player must not. Try downloading the data of the songs over. And do not mess with the process such as playing music on the computer or Doing anything else on the computer as well. I hope this helps.

Shows there are no files

Actually, you do not have the same problem - random deletion is caused by DB corruption, and can be solved by updating the player's firmware at

Vhart - The songs are in the wrong format - it does not recognize iTunes songs or DRM-encrypted songs which do not have "transfer rights" (many msuic services - especially free ones but also paid ones - give you WMA's that have "play rights" -i.e. you can play them on your computer; but if they do not have transfer rights, they will show up in your player, yet not play correctly/skip).

Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 Format and you will never have this problem.

MP3 Player wont play

I've found out how to help this problem. What you have to do is re-download the firmware and reformat the data area.

Download from this site:
(If this doesn't autolink, copy and paste it in your browser's address bar.)

And when you run it, click the checkbox for "Format Data Area." When the message comes up saying you want to delete all the files, click "yes-" it's worth deleting all your songs if it works properly afterwards. You'll have to re-sync your songs and the downloads take forever, but it works.

Deleing songs

For Windows XPTM users, you are connecting the device in MTP mode to the computer by default. You will need to set the device to MSC mode, so go to the device menu\Settings\Advanced\Protocol = > Press Play/Pause key to select MSC mode which will appear as such on the screen. Reconnect the device to the computer, and you can now see those files and delete them.
DO NOT forget to set the device back to MTP mode when finished, so go to device menu\Setting\Advanced = > Select MTP mode.

Mp3 will not load songs.

Had the same problem. You usually have to do this from a computer. But first you rip your selection unto a computer harddrive, creat a folder on the MP3 then from the harddrive pick, drag and drop your sellections into this folder or else the player will not find the music. Then remove MP3 from machine and play.

My RCA Lyra RD1072A just doesnt play songs

The most probable cause that I see happening to people with the same item is the fact that somewhere between uses, the setup files in the device itself gets corrupted. When this happens, you're pretty much screwed. You can't access them because it won't let you, you can't format it because it won't let you, you're left with a dead mp3 player. Sorry, but you need to get a new one. The other one is trash.

Try removing the battery and connecting it to the computer.

If it shows up on the Computer, format it.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (Lyra)>Right Click and select format.

This will erase everything on the device and allow you to start over.

Best of Luck.
