Question about Rio Carbon MP3 Player

1 Answer

EIO Carbon Pearl 5gb

My RIO player will freeze up after it plays approx 10 songs. I mean it just stops after approx 10 or 11 songs are played, not any particular song, I have noticed that it stops on different songs. So....I then push all buttons and nothing. So I then hold in on the power button and all of the little squares light up and the message 'saving settings' appears and then never goes away. I just usuallly let the battery die and recharge it. But I am tired of only listening to 10 or 11 songs....can you help me please? My email is cuffs_29@yahoo.com. Thank you.

Go to this part of the Rio website, and get the Plays for sure firmware update - even if you don't transfer any WMA files, this will help you get around the Windows Media Player 11 compatibility issue:

(WARNING: make sure the player is fully charged before doing this, or your player will be permanently lost)

My Rio carbon keeps freezing up


Your internal microdrive is probably playing up. You can either get a new microdrive (can be found in old ipods) or a CF card (sandisk CF ultraII work) or buy a new one.

Rio carbon 5 gig mp3


The Rio Carbon will not play songs from iTunes unless they are in mp3 format. If you cannot download the songs in this format then I would recommend a program such as mediacoder to convert the tracks. I don't know why iTunes was recommended for the Rio but I would just use drag and drop into the folder called Music on your Rio.

Hope this helps,

Carbon Pearl: Invalid Argument


Try accessing the rio's hard drive through my computer to see if it can find the songs: they will be in a folder aptly called music within your rio carbon.

If this doesn't help then if it is picked up via my computer you could try wiping and rebooting your rio, read:

You may have to change the firmware for the rio carbon pearl but this is easy to find on their website.

Hope this helps,

Rio pearl directory corrupted


first, and this is always good: If available, firmware for the Rio Carbon can be downloaded online. Second, this might be the problem: The Rio Carbon communicates with your computer differently in MTP mode than it does in MSC mode. When in MTP mode, the Rio Carbon cannot display hidden files in folders, cannot allow transfers to the root Rio Carbon directory, and cannot allow the creation of new folders. (Folders can be transferred to the Rio Carbon using drag-and-drop and copy-and-paste methods.) To use traditional folder options, change the Transfer Mode settings to put the Rio Carbon in MSC mode. Last, "..Removing the Rio Carbon from a USB connection before Idle is displayed on the screen may result in a corrupting the player's file system. If for any reason you suspect that your Rio player's file system has been corrupted, reformatting the player will restore the file system to its original state..."
