How to take music off Rio Carbon

I know how to delete tracks from the Carbon, but how do I take them off to store back on my PC? I've used many CD's to compile what's on the Rio, and it would be a mammoth task to find all the individual tracks again, if the Rio fails. Someone mentioned using Windows Explorer- is this correct? If so, can someone give me step by step instructions on the procedure- I'm a novice on a PC. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Carol.

    Sorry for the delay, but I've been on holiday. Tried your suggestion, and it worked!!!!!!

    Thank you very much- I've now got the tracks in a folder , and will be able to back them up to a cd.

    Cheers, Carol.

I have bad news - I was completely unsuccessful in dragging tracks from the rio to my computer. You can load songs, but you can't "unload" them with the Rio Carbon.

Just in case your computer has capabilities that mine does not, try this:
Double-click "My Computer" on your PC desktop
Double click the Rio Carbon icon
Double click the "Music" folder
Try dragging a single music file from the "Music" folder window to your PC desktop - it will either work, or it will say that it cannot copy the file to the specified location.

Good luck!

Your Rio carbon should show up as a removable device, double click on it,

double click on music and all of your music will be in there,
you can then just copy and paste it to your documents or other folders as a backup.

Grace Note not working in Windows Media or Rio Music Manager


you are suffering from the Digital licensing information encryption from the majors, which ITunes will NOT agree to. That's how the music industry is making it's muscle show, with this sort of tawdry nonsense. I don't believe there's a s/w upgrade on this, unfortunately. There is a slight possibility that your software might have an interpreter, yet your Rio being that old, not for certain.


got backup?

When I transfer music from Rio Music manager to my Rio Carbon the music manager indicates transfer successful but the MP3 player states no tracks present?


Hello,
Try to transfer the tracks from the explorer.

2 Double-click My Computer on the Windows Desktop or in the Start Menu.
3 Locate MP3 or WMA audio files on the computer.
4 Highlight files and/or folders to transfer to the Rio Carbon.
5 Click Edit.
6 Click Copy.
7 Double-click My Computer on the Windows Desktop or in the Start Menu to open another window.
8 In the new window, locate the Rio Carbon (X:) icon that is associated with the Rio Carbon. (X equals the drive
letter assigned to the Rio Carbon.)
9 Double-click Rio Carbon (X:).
10Click Edit.
11Click Paste.

Filels won't delete


Try re-formatting your Rio

On windows just right click on it and click format.

This will remove any tricky tracks that just don't want to go away...

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,

ErrMsg "There is insufficient space to index your content."


Normally when you format the Rio it does not actually remove the firmware so this may not have done anything. I would advise upgrading to the 1.95 or 3.04 firmware and format then and see if this sorts the problem.

Hope this helps,

You must use the music transfer software that came with the CD (also avail on Rio website) - which will not load on newer, Vista running computers.

Rio carbon pearl 6gb


On a windows computer go into my computer and explore your rio carbon folder. In there there should be at least 2 folders - Music and recordings. go into the music folder and all of your files should be there. Delete them all and start putting files on again.

If there are no files showing in the Music folder then go back to my computer and right click on your player and click on format. Accept all of the default values and click format. You will then need to download the firmware for your Rio. This can be downloaded from:
http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=234

Once you have downloaded it and your player has finished formatting then load the update by clicking on it and follow the instructions to install it. Once this is done then your player will be completely wiped and you can the start putting music back on it.

Hope this helps,
