    RCA M4008 MP3 Player, I have the exact same problem. 2 days after Christmas I received a boot error. I never really got to use it at all. You cannot go to the RCA webpage and download the firmware for any help. The program does not recognize the player, so in turn you cannot format the drive. The reset button on the back of the player is of no use either. I guess it is just money thrown in the garbage. If anyone can help, please let me know. Thanks

When you go to rca's website, it shows a download button but it is for the previous version of the software. The link to the left of the button is the link to the latest release of the program. Try this...

SOURCE: MP3 AUDIO/VIDEO PLAYER NOT WORKING

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

I foolishly deleted EasyRip software from player and pc


Will tell you how to work around the easy rip.
You will need two free programs
1st program Any Video converter
http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
It will convert the files to any output u like.
I like Mpeg 2
2nd program SMV Converter.
http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm
Have this convert the file to a smv file.
After its converted just drag and drop into the video section of your mp3 player.

Downloaded software from my rca flash mp3 player series th1602-a. I tried to download the updated version and it is not allowing me to download. I have tried plugging in the mp3 into the computer by...


when it says download updated version, ignore. Better yet don't use RCA software at all. Use your windows media player(version 10 or better). Click on file wanted to start media player. Then click on "now playing" and display item or all chapters if audio book is being played. Plug in RCA and drag item(s) to working area of Media Player. Hit sync. and finito!

You may be missing a critical windows update, or the firmware needs upgrading (or both).
Go to: update.microsoft.com for the updates (specifically, you need to convert this device to an MTP device, rather than an MSD device; msd is the old standard; MTP is the new).
Go to: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=89 for the firmware upgrade.
