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.

Bought the RCA m4304-a for son for Christmas when we try to install software we get errors on each item it tries to download


Try using Windows Media Player to upload your music. I'm not a fan of the software that came with it. I received mine as a Christmas gift a few days ago and I found it is so much easier to upload music through Windows Media Player than to use their software. Plus, it is a lot easier to upload audio books as well. Make sure you have the most up to date version of Windows Media Player for your operating system. I run Windows XP, so mine was Windows Media Player 10.

I haven't tried to upload video or pictures yet though. Hope this helps!

I foolishly deleted EasyRip software from player and pc


Will tell you how to work around the easy rip.
You will need two free programs
1st program Any Video converter
http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
It will convert the files to any output u like.
I like Mpeg 2
2nd program SMV Converter.
http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm
Have this convert the file to a smv file.
After its converted just drag and drop into the video section of your mp3 player.

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!

MP3 AUDIO/VIDEO PLAYER NOT WORKING


You may be missing a critical windows update, or the firmware needs upgrading (or both).
Go to: update.microsoft.com 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: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=89 for the firmware upgrade.

When you go to rca's website, it shows a download button but it is for the previous version of the software. The link to the left of the button is the link to the latest release of the program. Try this...
