"Failed to connect to player, Operation timed out"
When I open the music manager, the icon for the player appears, but when I try to clic on it, it says "reitreving database". 10 secondes later, the message "Failed to connect to player, Operation timed out" appears.
Since the first time it does it, the player tells me there is no files in it (it was full last time it worked!) when I put it on.

Re: "Failed to connect to player, Operation timed out"
I would recommend wiping and rebooting 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 player 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=112). 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.

Will need some more information. It could be anything from a loose connection on the inside of the computer to a failed drive. When you open the My Computer icon, is the icon for the drive displayed? If not, does the CD drive appear in the device manager? (Right click on the My Computer icon and choose Manage on the menu to pops up, select Device Manager and look for CD/DVD drives). If the drive does not appear in these areas, then I'd start by checking all of the connections to the drive (power cable and ribbon cable) and motherboard. If that does not fix it, check the BIOS to be sure that the on board IDE is enabled. After doing all of that, if you still get no response from the drive, then it is probably time to replace the drive itself.
Connect player to pc and power, restart player while holding the volume
+ key, as soon as the player shuts off, press and hold the volume -
key, your device manager will pop up and tell you the player needs repair, let it do so.

Connect your Portable Audio Player to the computer using the provided USB cable.
Open Windows Explorer; your player will appear as a Removable Disk drive type. Double-click on that drive.
In the MP3FM folder, double-click on the Mp3FileManager.exe file. The MP3 File Manager will now launch.
The first time you launch the MP3 File Manager, both this operation instruction window and the MP3 File Manager window will open. Close the operation instruction window.
You are ready to use MP3 File Manager!
Note: When MP3 File Manager is in use, press the F1 key to display the operation instruction window. Unless you uncheck the box in the lower part of the operation instruction window, the operation instructions will be displayed every time you launch MP3 File Manager.
