The pamplet which can be seen here has a couple solutions.

I recomend holding down the reset button located on the back of the MP3 player, restarting your computer, and then plugging the device back in.

You can also go to to see if theres a Serive Pack that could help.
Try a different USB port.
Scan for hardware changes by right clicking on My Computer. choose Properties from the menu that appears. Then Click on Hardware tab, then click on Device Manager. Within Device Manager, there should be a listing for Portable Devices. If there isn't a listing for Portable Devices or the listing it shows is highlighted with a question mark, right-click on Universal Serial Bus Controllers and select Scan for hardware changes.

If you have a laptop, disengage the laptop's battery. Let the computer sit for thrity minutes to an hour before reconnection the power. The voltage level that you USB prots receive can sometimes be less than the threshold voltage required to activate and communicate with your Mp3 player. This process should return the power levels back to their original default setting.

My GPX ML648S MP3 player turned off while charging and won't turn back on. What do I do?

are you charging with your computer through the USB cord or did you get an adapter to charge via an outlet?
If charging with your computer, it could be a bad USB port, try the ports in the back of the tower if your using the front and vice versa.
Is the device responsive otherwise? Can you load music and the like while the device is connected? If not your USB Cord could be faulty and need to be replaced.

If you are using a laptop keep in mind that sometimes the amount of voltage required for this device does not always reach the USB ports. Try disengaging the laptop battery for an hour and then reconnecting it.

You can try to take it out from the enclosure and plug the hard drive directly to your motherboard for you to retrieve the date. Or just buy a different drive enclosure.

Unable to download pictures from camera to pc

There are lots of different USB cables, not a real standardized piece. Try the USB that came with the camera or buy one that has your model listed. I have many and they all are specific to their models, some charge but dont sync, while others sync but dont charge, and some just dont do anything.

Worked first then boot error now comp wont pick it up

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpg, the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.
