Question about RCA H100 MP3 Player

RCA H106A 5.? G music player

I have this thing for a year. I recently borrowed a USB cable to charge it cuz the original one was misfiled. I was using Windows Media Player v 11.0 to synch it and it was fine. Recently it started failing to recognize the device when I plugged in and synchs were failing on just a few tracks saying the device was busy or something but I could replug a few times or try the synch again and it worked so I was blaming the cable. So I was using it with a fully charged battery and it just plain stopped. I can see dimly the screen for the last track I was playing. I couldn't shut it down. Yes I messed with the lock switch. I tried everything so I just left it overnight. Nothing respond when I replug it into the computer. Whoa all of a sudden it's now saying charging. But I think these problems will repeat. I will wait until (if ) it charges back up. what is causing this freeze? This is a POS I shoulda sprung for an ipod.

Re: RCA H106A 5.? G music player

I had the same problem, it always freezes with such a dimly lit screen that I can't even tell if it's on or not. All I did when that happened was just hold the power button for like 10 seconds and then let it sit for a while to rest, and I'll turn it back on some other time. The ipod sounds like a good idea, I wanna just buy an ipod too and hope that it doesn't have as many problems...

Is there a special charging gadget to charge my onix mp3 player purchased from Aldi on 27jan2011- it did not come with the purchase of the player, only a usb cord that plugs into the player????

same as u, i bought one recently from Aldi... luckily i have proper usb cable can use borrow from other devices (i.e. card reader and external hard disk drive). i guess this cable tech. name is "USB A Male to USB Mini 5 B Male Cable". You can buy one from BigW, Kmart, Office Work etc. Of couse the cost will be cheaper if buy one from any local discount variety stores such as Reject, Go Lo, Hot Dollar etc. Oh, one more thing, there is no special charging gadget to charge the player. Just connect it to your PC with proper usb cable. It will charge by itself ~little

How do i delete music from my rca h106a mp3?

Deleting Files,Pictures,etc from MP3 Player

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Good Luck, I hope this helps

After charging RCA H106A, cuts on but screen reads "FAT error, please connect to UMS device". Will not play any music, nor bring regular menu to screen. How can I fix this? Thanks. EddieB

I could not find a way to fix it, it was basically dead to me. I had the same problem on my h104 one, so I just called up RCA and sent my player to them and then they just sent me the h106.

My RCA H106A is driving me nuts

When the person said 1000 songs, that's only if all the songs are about like 4 minutes long and of a certain bit rate, so around 128 to 196 kbps. Really, it all comes down to the size of the music files that you put onto the mp3 player. As for there being another folder with the songs in them, I've looked through all the visible folders to find the older songs but I wasn't able to find them. My problem with my H106A is that the older songs stay in the mp3 player and I can't find a way to delete them. I can tell you that they could have a hidden folder, but that is not very likely it.
