Question about Rio Nitrus MP3 Player

1 Answer

Error message "failed to connect to player" "data blocked failed"

Rio music manager recognizes the mp3 player but crashes when tries to retrieve database. Then the following message appears "failed to connect to player, data blocked failed." I've tried the firmware that's offered on the Rio website and updated to v2.96 for the software which states that it apparently fixes this problem. Unfortunately it hasn't. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this. Much appreciated.

    I have the exact same problem. My PC recognizes the Rio Nitrus but anytime I attempt to transfer a song I get "failed to connect to player, data block failed." Good luck contacting Rio. Absolutely useless. Suggest you purchase an I-pod.

Don't buy an iPod...
I would recommend wiping and rebooting your player cos it's cheaper:

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio player and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=112).
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps

Carbon Pearl: Invalid Argument


Try accessing the rio's hard drive through my computer to see if it can find the songs: they will be in a folder aptly called music within your rio carbon.

If this doesn't help then if it is picked up via my computer you could try wiping and rebooting your rio, read:

You may have to change the firmware for the rio carbon pearl but this is easy to find on their website.

Hope this helps,

Info retrieval


If the computer recognizes the player, then -
Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mp3 player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing

If the computer does not reocgnize - the player is toast

Rio Nitrus MP3 Player


Ok Rio nitrus is great litle thing, and I had the same problem. This is what you should do:

1) download latest firmware for rio nitrus http://www.rioaudio.com/support/rio/downloads/Nitrus/RioNitrus_firmware_123.exe
2) unpack firmware
3) connect Rio Nitrus to your comp;
4)While holding menu buton press power button, you sholud see on display showing UPGRADER text;

5) Then upgrade the firmware ( note that this will erase all the songs- read the read me file that come with firmware);

Although I allready have the same version of firmware v.123 like the one that upgreded this solved the problemm.

Insufficient space to index your content


I would suggest going to the rio site, http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=235. Downloading the latest version of the rio music manager. See if,once the manager is loaded, you can access your music. What OS did you load? Are you using MS indexer or Google?
