My Lyra does the exact same thing...what i do is i pull the batteries out for a second and the unfreezes the device...then i delete the song that froze my device....then i reload the song..if it freezes again delete that song from ur computer them find a better music provider because most likely the song was corruped
Many updates end up deleting all songs off your player as a side effect - try reloading your songs onto the Opal and see if they will play after that.
Also, make sure the hold/lock switch wasn't accidentally activated.
Another possibility is that one of the updates made a change to which DRM licenses the player is compatible with. If you have songs with an older DRM-9 license, they may not be usable after the update. which music service do you get your songs from? If it is a licensing issue, then I would try loading only songs that are in mp3 format - they will never give you funky issues.
That particular player is designed to work that way. Apple made one of their iPods in exactly that fashion, and other manufacturers' mp3 players quickly followed suit. You can pause it but you can't stop it. If you want to change songs, or the order in which they play, you can hit the "M" button and select songs/options from the menu of the RCA.
Wow... sounds like you've really been through the proverbial wringer with this issue already! You have indeed tried almost every step I would have suggested already, but here's another thing or two to try:
1) Burn an audio CD of this song. It's a true waste of a CD, but fortunately CDs are quite inexpensive!
2) Eject the CD.
3) In iTunes, find the problem song and add something to the title to make it differentiate it... for instance, if the song was, "Freebird", I would rename it, "Freebird CORRUPT".
4) Re-insert the CD, and now rip this new version of the song into iTunes.
5) Sync up your iPod and see if the issue is resolved.
Hope this helps you out! =)
I've had the same problem, an it started when I formatted the player's flash memory to NTFS, an then realised it needed to be back in FAT(Win95) format for the mp3 player to play the songs. But after doing that, sometimes it'll mess up an the song number changes to 826, an the player completely freezes. I have to then take the battery out to restart it. If anyone has schematics, or knows where I can track them down, I would be appreciative, for the RCA lyra M200
