Can you see it your player under My Computer?
I'm also assuming that you have a computer USB cable?
If so, in My Computer right click player, EXPLORE, find the MUSIC folder. Sometimes the manufacturers hide it under a bogus file name, just open each folder, looking inside each until you find a folder named MUSIC.
All your music already has to be in the mp3 format, COPY it from that location (hard drive, CD, flash drive), then PASTE it into the music folder on your player.
Disconnect from the computer and check out your songs, enjoy.
What i do is i never put songs in my internal memory...this way you never have to worry about formating the internal memory....so i have several exteral card i use say one for country or rock and its so easy to format a exteral card just place it in ur card reader if ur using a laptop them go to my computer right click on ur card that youll find then youll notice on the list theres format so its so easy...im sure its asking you to format ur drive because you must have a few corrupted files....best of all when adding music just pull ur external card out place it in a reader fill ur card with music then insert it back in ur device...this way ur getting away with using any firmware....by the way take any disc that came with ur Lyra and chuck it in the garbage that 90 percent of all ur problems
I did the same thing and reformatted mine too! If you go to www.rcaaudiovideo.com and put in your model number M4208GR and click on the update for the firmware update again then it will put everything back on the MP3 player. I know it sounds nuts but it worked for me and it wont do anymore harm then you have already done ;) Give it a try. Hope it works for you like it did me!
The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the WindowsTM format command on the unit. To reformat the memory
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Take the battery out and put it back in after a few seconds, turn it on again and pray.
If the same happens, plug it in with USB, take all your music onto your computer and make sure none is on the USB device and format it. Once formatted, try turning it on again, if it works, copy your music over and try again. If it does not work, it is likely faulty and should be returned.
This player can only handle songs that are in a specific bit rate - lower it to the rate suggested in your product specs. Go to RCA's website if you have lost the documentation. Corrupt file systems can usually be solved with a firmware upgrade (also at RCA's website), but if that fails: There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media
Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath
the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking
on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
