RCA H100 MP3

When i turn my mp3 player on, it loads up one loading bar, then says FAT error, please insert UMS device format. i have no clue what a UMS device format is, nor how to get one. all i can find are people telling me to drop it on a hard surface, but hell, i even tried that in my desperation, and it doesnt do anything at all. please help me find a solution to make my mp3 player work. i am a hardcore audiophile, and i am going nuts without my music.

Same thing happened to me, i had my player stopped for about six months.

The HD inside your player is kind of "stuck", so it won't load and you won't be able to format it, even if you try a lot.

The way I got mine to work is very primitive hehe. HIT IT! Turn your player on and when it starts to load (just before it starts clicking) hit it against your hand palm, you don't wanna destroy it but you have to hit firmly and a little hard.

That's they way I fixed mine. So good luck.

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

This may sound stupid but, it worked. I dropped it from about two feet onto our kitchen floor and it turned on. I am sorry if it makes it worse... but what do you have to lose

Here's how you fix it for rca H106:

use the user maunal so you know what I'm talking about. I got the FAT error! Plz.. and I could still get the icons. This is how I fixed it. Go to settings and go to advanced press play once only. Plug into computer and it wil recognize it as a flash drive. Completely Format the drive then unplug the player from computer. It will switch back to previous setting automatically. If you need to update drivers and firmware use the auto updater from http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/downloads/autoupdater.exe
