Question about RCA MP3 & Digital Media Players
I have tried several times to install the software that came with my rca lyra mp3.
Initially it worked great, and then for whatever reason the mp3 would shut off whenever I plugged it into the usb. The usb is fine because other hardware works on it.
For reasons I cannot explain the usb port in the rear of my CPU will turn on the mp3 for charging but no media player will recognize that the player is installed.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the CD however even though the program says successful installation there is no sign of it in the control panel.
I cannot find a downloadable driver, and the official RCA site does not supply one either.
I have spent many hours trying to fix the problem, I have emailed RCA on 3 seperate occasions with absolutely no response.

I work at RadioShack and have had a few customers ask about this. We don't have one specifically for the RCA mp3 players, I had a hunch that the charger for the iPod Shuffle (the newer one, not the older one) would work. As it turns out, it does. You can order one through our stores or website that's made by DLO (catalog # 55025326 ), though most electronic retailers carry some sort of charger for the Shuffle already, and you can easily find them online, too.

Try changing mp3 firmware to MSC mode.
MTP is a protocol developed by Microsoft that just sucks and makes one million of help requests like yours.

Make sure your Windows Media Player installation is complete and uncorrupoted. Try reinstalling WMP11 from the Microsoft website (WGA workarounds do not work for this purpose). Also try updating your USB drivers: just delete the existing ones in Device Manager, reboot and let Windows reinstall them.
