Re: Wont install

The CD is not guaranteed to work with Vista, however there are some links on RCA's website to attempt to download updated programs that where present on the CD. Here is the link:

I am running Vista Enterprise and my Pearl works fine just by using the drag and drop features of Windows Explorer to place the .mp3 or .wma files on the device.

How to Install:

IMPORTANT: Before doing the installation, please make sure that your PC is running Windows XP (Home or Professional) Service Pack 2 or Windows Vista. For all legal licensees, Windows Service Pack (SP) upgrades are free. Also make sure that you have the administrator privileges on the PC and all antivirus and spyware software is disabled.
  1. Install the music and photo software as well as the device manager by inserting the installation CD into the CD-ROM drive. (If the installer menu is not displayed automatically, please click the start.exe file in the root directory of the CD in Windows Explorer.)
  2. From the installer menu, select your preferred language; the welcome screen will appear. Click NEXT to advance through the next pages until you reach the Install Software page, and then click NEXT to start the installation of the Philips Device Manager and Windows Media Player.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
  4. As soon as the installation is completed, restart your computer, and then connect your player to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
  5. Once the device is connected, you may see the device appear in the task bar or as a folder in Windows Explorer. Now, you can launch Windows Media Player and use the software to transfer music to your player.

My Samsung YP-S2 Mp3 player can't be recognised by computers when I plug it in through the usb input (it used to work), therefore I'm not able to upload music on it anymore. How can I fix this bug?

Samsung Player Is No Longer Detected By Windows XP, Vista, Emodio Or
Samsung Media Studio.
When your computer doesn't recognize your Samsung MP3 player, programs
such as Samsung Media Studio (SMS), Emodio, Windows Media Player
(10 or 11) do not allow you to transfer files to your player.
In SMS and Emodio, the portable icon appears grayed out.
In Windows Media Player, you are prompted to connect a device.
Your PC may fail to recognize your player for a variety of reasons.
To begin troubleshooting, scroll down, and then click the operating
system your computer is currently running.
General Operating System Information
On Windows computers, Samsung MP3 players require at least Windows XP
Service Pack 2. If you have an older operating system such as Windows
2000 or Windows 98, your computer won't recognize your player until you
upgrade your PC to at least Windows XP Service Pack 2.
If your PC is running Linux or MAC, it will not recognize some MP3
players that support only MTP mode. However, it will recognize players
that support UMS mode and list them as mass storage devices.
The following Samsung MP3 players support UMS: YP-U1, YP-U2, YP-U3,
YP-U4, YP-U5, and YP-S2.
The following Samsung MP3 players support both MTP and UMS mode: YP-Z5
and YP-P3.
Windows Vista may fail to detect you device if the player is not
connected properly, Windows Media Player is not installed or has become
corrupted, Vista is unable to install the MTP drivers, or the MTP patch
is not installed.
You can check it out further by going to this website and entering the information about your player

Iriver S10

If you want to copy music from cd to the S10, just use Windows Media Player to rip the cd, creating eg WMA files on your hard disc. Then copy them to the S10. Don't need any iriver software.

If you have a genuine version of Windows with a licence key, then download and install XP Service Pack 2 from the Microsoft website. You can also request a CD copy.

If you do not have a genuine copy with a licence key, then you will not be able to re-activate Windows XP once Sevice Pack 2 has installed.

RCA mp3 player software won't install on my computer.

You don't need the installer- Windows Media Player will find the device, then click on "Sync" at the top to download the music to your player.

Help getting my cd to install

The product was manufactured before Vista came out, so the labelling was correct at the time it was manufactured.
