HI,

Try connecting your player to another USB port. Using one port all the time to connect and disconnect USB items a port can develop a range of files associated with configuring the USB connection. Some of these files might actually have been from your player connected before, or some of these configurations could be from other USB items you connect to this port. Changing ports can often lead to an immediate good connection simply because ther are no conflicting configuration files.

THIS IS A BIG ONE. This is the last thing to do. Before you try this process, please complete a full back up of your system. This is important as the next step can have side effects you did not entirely expect. AND Second, you might need your XP Install Disk (not in all cases). What this process is about is renewing all hardware/software configurations relating to USB connections.

Here is what you do:
1. Right click MY COMPUTER
2. Select PROPERTIES
3. Select HARDWARE
4. Select DEVICE MANAGER
5. Select UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS
6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
7. Uninstall all entries
8. Reboot your computer
9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects

THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB Player.



If these suggestions are implemented and you are still have connection difficulties with your computer, there are several other things to try. If you have another XP Computer you should try connecting your player to another computer to see if the problem is a player problem or not. If it still has this problem with the next computer, it maybe be a fault of the player.

IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED ALL the above mentioned and still have a problem, you should next contact the seller of this machine for further instructions of what to do next.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Have you tryed to reset the player?

hold power key for 10 seconds that should restart.

let me know if it doesnt fix the problem.

Posted on Apr 12, 2008

  • Ekse Apr 12, 2008

    also if that doesnt fix it
    lets try a firmware update

    Try to connect the device to the computer while holding down the PLAY
    button. (This will allow the device to connect to the computer in safe
    mode.)
    Once connecting to the computer is successful, download the upgrade firmware to the device, and follow the upgrade steps.

    Find the update from here.

RCA H100A reading fat error, computer not recognizeing the player F5 will not refresh. Ditto from above...that's what I get for going cheap, I guess! RCA H100A reading FAT error!


i believe that is a formating error basically telling you the player need to be reformatted and then you will have to reload all music on it. i dont have this particular player. i am just going by best guesstimate. dont hold me to it contact the manufactures website and they should be able to provide more details.

RCA Lyra H100A


You must be running Windows 98 - see if RCA's website has the driver - you must have that driver or the installation CD - there is no other way (unless you get a computer running Windows XP or higher):

1. Insert the supplied installation CD into the CD-ROM drive first.
2. Read the readme file of the installation CD.
3. Double Click “77xinst”, then Restart Computer.
Method Two:
1. Insert the supplied installation CD into the CD-ROM driver and
connect the unit to your PC via the supplied USB cord.
Note: Do not select the charging battery mode after connecting the
unit to your PC. Please see page 4 for details.
2. If the player is recognized by your PC, the “Add New Hardware
Wizard” is activated, and click “Next”.

I keep getting Fat Error. I have not dropped the unit. This proplem has just started today. Now my computer will not recignize the player, F5 will not refresh the player. If there is anyway you can HELP...


This error means that the player's partition's got messed up. Is there a way you can force the player into Disk Mode? If so, try that. If it works, the computer would recognize it. You can then right click on the drive and select "Reformat". That should fix everything.
