When my computer stopped recognizing my RCA Pearl, I was able to fix the firmware inside the mp3 player even though the computer didn't seem to think it was there.

You mentioned you tried to reinstall the software, & got nothing, but I will walk you through reinstalling the firmware on your player as this is the most likely fix.

You can download the RCA TH1102 software here:

When you start this program, a windows pops up with troubleshooting instructions are the bottom. You can read them, but I will also take you through the steps.

  1. start the program,
  2. remove the battery from the TH1102 & wait at least 10 secs,
  3. hold the play button while plugging into usb,
  4. release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
  5. click the start button to replace the firmware.
Hope that helps.

RCA pearl 1602-A won't register when plugged into USB port.

When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from

remove the battery,
start the program,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

My RCA TH1161-A mp3 player wont work at all

Ensure the key lock is not activated by sliding
"Power on/off ( )/Hold" towards the center
position. If your player isn’t already on, turn it on by
sliding "Power on/off ( )/Hold" to the left
and holding until the player turns on.

Pearl wont do anything

#1. Stop pinching pennies and buy a used cheap ipod on ebay, I bought one myself for Xmas, guess how much. $45 with free shipping, now I'm enjoying it, with mp3 formatted songs I downloaded form youtube.
#2. Google 'RCA Pearl Firmware Upgrade', it will be hard to find, but when you do, download and install it. Note, this solves the problem, but not forever. So I would advise you to bookmark the site, or save the file for future use.
