It sounds like there is a problem with the device firmware..update the device firmware and that should solve the problem you are having...

    format the device using windows media player and let me know what happen...to format it open your windows media player and click under sync...assuming you are running windows media player 11...you should see the device on the right side..just right click and hit format...DO NOT RESET YOUR DEVICE..WHENEVER YOU RESET IT ITS LIKE YOU NEVER DID A FIRMWARE UPGRADE..YOU ENDED UP HAVING THE MANUFACTURE FIRMWARE...format it and then do the firnware upgrade...let me know what happen...

  • Jean Sintulaire Jan 27, 2008

    thats because the device firmware is corrupted..I am not sure if you are able to format it using the player itself..check to see under menu->setting-> to see if there is a format option under the device itself...if not get the firmware upgrade and then format your device..let me know what happen..

  • Jean Sintulaire Jan 27, 2008

    ok...let me know the outcome...

My Rio carbon keeps freezing up


Your internal microdrive is probably playing up. You can either get a new microdrive (can be found in old ipods) or a CF card (sandisk CF ultraII work) or buy a new one.

Insert a paper clip end into the small hole to the right of the headphone socket. This will reset it (if it's not already gone flat!)

You will have broken the hard drive,

Try replacing it with a CF card,

Everybody says that this does not work but it definitely does!

My Rio got dropped and I completely buggered the hard drive so after reading many forums saying that it didn't work I read one that said that someone had told them that sandisk ultra II ones worked (very vague!)

Because I had nothing to lose I went out and bought a 1GB sandisk Ultra II CF card. I then took apart my rio and replaced the hard drive with the CF card. Still not thinking it was going to work I plugged it into my computer and installed the latest firmware (from the rio website) and then HEY PRESTO!!!!!! it works.

I have yet to try an 8GB ultra II card but when I do i will keep you posted.

If you don't believe me then I don't blame you but If you send me a request then I can send you pictures and more details...

Rio will live on

Hope this helps

When Microsoft initiated the DRM system, any Rio Carbon that was hooked into Windows Media Player had the previously working files invalidated. Happened to me as well. The player lasted me three years, and that is about as long as any Mp3 player is going to last we are finding out b/c of all the software snafus.

Rio pearl directory corrupted


first, and this is always good: If available, firmware for the Rio Carbon can be downloaded online. Second, this might be the problem: The Rio Carbon communicates with your computer differently in MTP mode than it does in MSC mode. When in MTP mode, the Rio Carbon cannot display hidden files in folders, cannot allow transfers to the root Rio Carbon directory, and cannot allow the creation of new folders. (Folders can be transferred to the Rio Carbon using drag-and-drop and copy-and-paste methods.) To use traditional folder options, change the Transfer Mode settings to put the Rio Carbon in MSC mode. Last, "..Removing the Rio Carbon from a USB connection before Idle is displayed on the screen may result in a corrupting the player's file system. If for any reason you suspect that your Rio player's file system has been corrupted, reformatting the player will restore the file system to its original state..."
