Question about Rio CE2100 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Cheap technology? My sister's Rio CE2100 wouldn't turn on. She plugged it into her computer and then into the wall to charge it because we thought that maybe the battery was just so dead it wouldn't turn on. She'd charged it for a couple of hours and tried to turn it on again but it still wouldn't work. So I tried a different cord. I plugged it into my computer and the battery picture came up and it started charging. Stupid me, I pulled out the cord and now it's frozen on that battery picture. She's has the player for a couple of years and it's never given her problems. I'd love to contact the company and ask them for help but they seem to have a wonderful way of being unreachable. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix my sister's player?

My daughters rio does the same thing only a little over a year old. Rio customer support does not exist they just told me to go to the website, you have to either buy advice for $19.95 which is ridiculous or buy a new one . They are no help, I want to open up the player and try to replace the battery has anyone tried this

I used an earring to press the reset button, and I turned the player on as I let go of the button. It seems to be the solution for many problems with the Rio CE2100 so I'd say it's worth a try. And if you're looking for help on the Rio website, it is there, it's just really hard to find.

My ce 2100 doesnt work anymore.. i plug it in and at shows a battery bar charging for a few minutes then the screen goes blank and i can turn it on or even charge it again can i change the battery?


yes. Once you plug it in it should automatically start charging. If the screen goes blank leave it for about 15 min. Unplug it and start it to see if it has charge. I hope this solution has been helpful.

Rio ce2100 upgrader


You probably 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

My Rio turns off mid-song


I would recommend wiping your player:

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio carbon and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=235).
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps

Player spontaneously shuts off (battery is charged!)


Hi. I recommend a firmware upgrade. You can obtain this by doing the following: 1) Connect the player to your computer with the USB cable. 2) Wait for "idle" to be displayed on the player screen. 3) Double-click the file that you downloaded from the Rio website. The update should take approximately 30 seconds to load. and here is the link for your firmware upgrade file. http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/downloads/ce2100/RioCe2100_firmware_143.exe Good Luck

My rio ce2100 keeps stuttering or skipping


I would recommend wiping your player - (if this doesn't work then it is probably the tracks/audio you are playing and not the player):

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio carbon and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.

My rio used to say upgrator and now its not turning on at all.


I think when you hit the on/off power button (on top near outlet for headphones) AND hit the menu button (on side below volume dial) at same time...it puts the Rio CE2100 into "Upgrader" mode aka "Recovery" mode. From what I've found online, basically, the firmware to the device is deleted. Trying to reinstall firmware, or reflash the device is nearly impossible. The tiny hole near the earphones is for resetting the device--use a needle (about the only thing that will fit-ouch)...but that only lets you turn it on/off if u get stuck. The tiny hole on face near display is where audio recording mic WOULD be if Rio CE2100 had one. If ANYONE knows how to escape "Recovery mode" or "Upgrader" mode please share. This is a common final result for many owners of this otherwise great mp3 player. There is some notation in online help site that says ce2100 requires 500mA from USB and says u can go to Device manager, check ur USB Root Hub, check Power tab to see how much power is being supplied to the device. Mine said 100mA, and doesn't work...but I don't know how to resolve this. =) Maybe tomorrow...or just wait for sales post-christmas. =)
