Question about RCA M1001GB (1GB) MP3 Player

Open Question

RCA Lyra TC1001A reads NO FILES

I turned on my MP3 & it says NO FILES. I know I didn't erase them. When I plug the MP3 into my computer, it shows as drive G & when I open that drive it shows all the songs. The properties show that there is 82MB disk space used. Why won't my MP3 play the songs? Help!

    The problem I have isn't quite the same. I too have a RCA Lyra TC1001A
    but in my case the thing just wont turn on. I have managed to figure
    out that the firmware is corrupted. I can get the computer to see the player by using recovery mode drivers. RCA just plainly tells me, "The TC1001A is an older model that has been discontinued for quite some time now. We no longer have any firmware available." B.S.! They NEVER supported this mp3 player. I just bought the thing not quite a year and a half ago. I still have another
    working one of the same model. What I'm trying to find out now is, is
    there a program that I can use to scan the firmware off the working one
    and reflash it to the non-working one? As for Britty's case, it may
    well be corrupted firmware as well.

For Windows XPTM users, you are connecting the device in MTP mode to the computer by default. You will need to set the device to MSC mode, so go to the device menu\Settings\Advanced\Protocol = > Press Play/Pause key to select MSC mode which will appear as such on the screen. Reconnect the device to the computer, and you can now see those files and delete them.
DO NOT forget to set the device back to MTP mode when finished, so go to device menu\Setting\Advanced = > Select MTP mode.

The most probable cause that I see happening to people with the same item is the fact that somewhere between uses, the setup files in the device itself gets corrupted. When this happens, you're pretty much screwed. You can't access them because it won't let you, you can't format it because it won't let you, you're left with a dead mp3 player. Sorry, but you need to get a new one. The other one is trash.

No files


I think your problem is that you have songs that are not MP3 or WMA format on the RCA Lyra S1010. They are probably mpeg4 (like iTunes. I know because I had done the same thing!) Make sure that you check the format before you put them on the device!

Freezing mp3


This may be the mp3 player that is wired badly. However, you may taking the battery or disconnecting it from its power for 10-30 seconds. Also, power down the computer1.gif and wait for 10 seconds -30 depending on the amount of times the computer has been shut down for the week. Try downloading its driver so that the computer will recognize this hardware1.gif.
