Question about Rio Carbon MP3 Player
Ive had my Rio Carbon for a while and now it suddenly just wont turn on...I've tried a paperclip in the hole and still nothing...Does anyone have any suggestions? should I working with it or just get something new?
I had the same problem. I smacked the back of it (in my hand, not off any surface) to try to release the pin stuck on the hard drive. Rio Carbon currently works for me, but I will not expect too much. I have had mine for awhile now.
This is probably only a temporary solution, in the long run your hard drive will most likely get stuck again.

You have probably 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
