SOURCE: rio nitrus will not power up
I took ny Rio Nitrus apart trying to fix the screen & noticed that the rechargable battery connects to the motherboard with two flimsy little wires and a pinhead worth of solder. If you've tried everything else, it'd be worth your time to take off the back and have a look 'cuz a drop could easily have shaken one of these wires loose.

I had the same issue and I eventually re-formatted the player. Once I had finished that, it seemed to work again, letting me add songs.

Hi, it seems I have a similar problem after my Nitrus fell. I think the disk is defect. I once had this problem before and could solve it by downloading new firmware and formating the disk. I tried this again this time, but when trying to download the firmware it stops with the message Ok but in addition it says timelimit has been reached. Seems it didn't work. I guess the disk is really broken this time for my player.

Ok Rio nitrus is great litle thing, and I had the same problem. This is what you should do:
1) download latest firmware for rio nitrus http://www.rioaudio.com/support/rio/downloads/Nitrus/RioNitrus_firmware_123.exe
2) unpack firmware
3) connect Rio Nitrus to your comp;
4)While holding menu buton press power button, you sholud see on display showing UPGRADER text;
5) Then upgrade the firmware ( note that this will erase all the songs- read the read me file that come with firmware);
Although I allready have the same version of firmware v.123 like the one that upgreded this solved the problemm.

If you look in the hints and tips section for the Rio carbon there are many things I have posted that should help you. I have no hands on knowledge of the hardware of a Nitrus but I understand that it is similar to the carbon.
Hope this helps,
