Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

the problem is probably that you didn't disconnect it safely; you might just have to buy a new one

Download the latest firmware upgrade from www.rcaopal.com to restore the player. The firmware upgrade file will be on the "Download Upgrades" section of the website.

SOURCE: computer not recongize the rca th1602 mp3 player

The first time I tried to restore the firmware in my Pearl it would not recognize it. I had to follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you run the software. Basically, try taking the battery out and waiting 10 seconds or so. Run the software and read all the instructions at the bottom of the popup window. then hold the play button, plug your player in, and keep holding that button until the software recognizes it. It works.

As long as your computer can see the player, it is likely the firmware has gotten corruped.

First, connect your player and back up any important media items that are on it.

Next, download and run the firmware installer from the RCA website:

When the RCA S2001 MP3 Player connect the computer, only display charge, I can't find rca in my computer explorer, I can't copy song to RCA S2001 MP3 Player, please give me some advice, thanks,


mputer using your usb cable on your computer look for "my computer"
you willl see the drive c , drive d , drive e and drive F which will appear there the name of the mp3 or just the"memory" of your mp3 like for ex. 4 GB or 8 GB click on that and you will see the files or songs u have downloaded or copied in to it.

My computer wont detect my rca s2001p mp3 player


Have you tried on different machine
If you have and it works, then it is your computer; which could be numerous issues. I had a memory which would only work on my home computer if I plugged it in then then turned computer on but it would work no problems on my work machine. If it has driver software try uninstalling then installing while device plugged in. A lot of these flash drive devices whether be storage or media players are temperamental.

When you plug it in and unplug it does windows play a sound.

If it does not make the sound and it does not work on other computers then the device is faulty. Check the plug is not fowled or damaged otherwise its a goner!

Problem is I don't have the CD


Hello,
Overview support site for the RCA S2001 can be reached here:
http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/product.aspx?product=124

Manual for the S2001;
http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/manuals/S2001/media/S2001_UMEN.pdf
The manual shows 3 ways how to perform transfers between the player and a computer.
  • In Windows Explorer
Exploring ''My Computer'' seeing the player as a removable disk, media
can be transferred like normally putting files to a external device. Always remember to safely remove hardware connection of the player before disconnecting the device.
  • Using Windows Media Player 11
The Media Player supported by Microsoft Windows. Run WMP11 to
see the player as a media device. Transfers to the player can be made
making playlists and synchronizing them to the S2001.
For updating WMP11 go to the original site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx
  • Using Yahoo! Music Jukebox
Music Jukebox of Yahoo! is also a software utility for transferring your music to the player. The Yahoo! Jukebox contains links for buying music to download (there is a free trial).
This software is difficult to download directly form the original site.
When still wanting to use it, get a download from e.g. next site:
http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,6152-order,1-page,1-c,alldownloads/description.html


When having problems with the player, there''s a firmware installation
download available.
Performing reinstallation of the firmware will delete all content from the player.

My computer wont detect the mp3 and connect


Is the player working normally otherwise?

If so, then try the player in a different USB port on your computer. When plugged in, the display of the Pearl should say that it is connected to a USB device and it will show up automatically as a removable external drive in your windows explorer.

If not, then upgrade the firmware in the unit and the computer will recognize it again. Download the firmware upgradefrom http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and follow 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.

See other solutions posted here about downloading new firmware. Included is holding down the play button when you turn it on and connect it. Click the box to reformat the disc and install ver 1.5 or later of firmware. It wipes the drive but it works. Good luck!
