The setup files are typically on your computer; what operating system are you using? If you are using windows 98 you will need the cd-rom with the drivers. If you are running windows xp you probably have a problem with spyware or a virus; could be some corrupt files as well.

I have a mp3 rca lyra radio and mp3 player. It


Do you have the RCA LYRA PEARL, with the folding out usb plug? RCA has made bunch of different mp3 players and has reused the LYRA and the PEARL name. Mine has both names on it, and the firmware file below is for model numbers TC- or TH-1602 or 1604.

One time I replaced my battery and my unit would not go any further than the Pearl logo. So, I downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again.

Message pops up after I turn it on, then it cuts off


Have you tired formatting it? Sometimes Mp3 player contacts virus while putting them in a system that has virus. So maybe you should try to scan it because the file inside might have have virus and maybe that's why its misbehaing. Virus also sometimes occupies space on a drive.

I wish you the best.

It says exceeded usable memory and shuts down and wont come back on


I haven't seen the exceeded usable memory message on mine, but I am familiar with Pearls not coming back on.

First, perform a reset buy removing the battery for at least 10s. Sometimes mine just shows the plain pearl logo (not the moving one) and then shuts off. Removing the battery for a while and then putting it back in always fixes it so that it shows the plain pearl logo for few seconds then displays the animated logo and starts normally.

If this fix doesn't work for you, then the firmware inside the Pearl is most likely corrupted, and can be easily fixed by running this software from the RCA website and following these steps:

  1. start the program,
  2. remove the battery from the TH1102 & wait at least 10 secs,
  3. hold the play button while plugging into usb,
  4. release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
  5. click the start button to replace the firmware.
Hope that helps.

RCA Easy Rip Uninstall will not... uninstall


I agree that RCA Easy Rip adds just about zero value; although i use my pearly everyday, I always access it via windows explorer as a removable drive.

I removed that program from the Pearl so it would stop asking if I wanted to install easyrip.

My suggestion for you is to run the installation software for easyrip again. I think this will help for one of two reasons:

  1. Being unable to uninstall from control panel is unusual and suggests an incomplete or corrupted installation. Reinstalling may fix the installation enough to use control panel's uninstall feature.
  2. Many software setup routines, upon finding the software already setup, will ask you if you want to remove it rather than install it a second time.

Hope that helps.

I have the 2 GB flash MP3 player with FM tuner. I


Last night I replaced my battery and my unit would not go any further than the Pearl logo. So this morning I downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2556, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

Note: when I tried this last week to fix the aac error message, it did not fix the problem with some music files. After following these steps today, plus making sure the format data box was selected, I can now play the troublemaking files without errors.

RCA Pearl 2GB


Click this link to go to the RCA support page. Under the light bulb, click "For TH1102 click here". This will download the firmware for your Pearl. Plug in your mp3 player and run the file. This will delete any songs or data currently on your mp3 player so back up your songs if you can.

RCA Pearl TH1602 Frozen?


I had the same problem, usually plugging it into the usb port on the pc and verifying the files on the player, then disconnecting the player will solve the problem. Other times i have to reformat the player, if you do that, you will have to put all your music back on. It's a pain, this has happened to me 4 times, I've only had this thing less than 6 months! It was inexpensive, I guess you get what you pay for, but I like having a AAA battery instead of having to remember to plug it in to the pc to recharge every 15 hrs.

The RCA Easy Rip Installer has detected that a critiical file is missing : Setup.XML


If you are not prompted to install easyRip, you can find the installer on the device itself or download it at the URL listed below.

If you are getting the message that a critical file is missing, download the latest installer at:

http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2253

Please clarify about the player stuck initializing. What model of player is it? Is the device itself stuck initializing or is a firmware update for your device (would be on your PC) stuck initializing?
