You may be missing a critical windows update, or the firmware needs upgrading (or both).
Go to: for the updates (specifically, you need to convert this device to an MTP device, rather than an MSD device; msd is the old standard; MTP is the new).
Go to: for the firmware upgrade.

Downloaded software from my rca flash mp3 player series th1602-a. I tried to download the updated version and it is not allowing me to download. I have tried plugging in the mp3 into the computer by...

when it says download updated version, ignore. Better yet don't use RCA software at all. Use your windows media player(version 10 or better). Click on file wanted to start media player. Then click on "now playing" and display item or all chapters if audio book is being played. Plug in RCA and drag item(s) to working area of Media Player. Hit sync. and finito!

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.
