    Yeah I bought an RCA TC 1604 and I'm getting the same message. I've tried the link offered by dimetraveler, and my model isn't up there. I think it's just going to be easier to return this, and keep to iPod. It's expensive, but at least it works reliably.

    We've got this problem too, and the rca website is no help, I guess this is what you get for buying retail store brand.

    I also have a TC1604-A RCA and it is not listed on the web site. Did anyone find a solution before I return it? Thanks

My mp3 playa wont come on


I have the same unit, which I think was great value for the money, but occasionally it refuses to start up (it hangs at the welcome screen) or doesn't play certain tracks. Whenever it acts up, the solution has been to reflash/upgrade the firmware.

Download the firmware upgrade from 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:

  1. start the program,
  2. remove the battery,
  3. hold the play button while plugging the RCA player into your computer's usb port,
  4. release the play button when the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
  5. check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
  6. click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, I was also able to play DRM-protected and aac audio files. I hope that helps.

Thomson 6717 2gb mp3 player will not play songs loaded onto it it tells me i need AAC upgrade firmware at www.rcaaudiovideo.com and there is no AAC download listed at that website


Firstly, is the Thomson 6717 the same as the RCA Pearl TH1602 ie are they made by the one company under different names for marketing in different countries. If so, go to the following site for a choice of three firmware downloads. Please advise if this works on your Thomson 6717.

It needs aac upgrade


My RCA Pearl gave me the AAC firmware message with some files until I followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when running the firmware update software. The firmware with AAC upgrade is here.

Follow these instructions and it will work:

run the firmware update software software,
reset the player by removing the battery or holding the power button for 10s for players with internal batteries,
hold the play button while inserting the unit into usb,
release the button once the software changes from "searching" to "initalizing",
check the box to format the data on the player,
and click start.

When I did this update without formatting, the aac fix did not work. I

Keeps telling me need aac firmware upgrade from rcaaudiovideo


I kept getting the same aac firmware message until I followed the following steps:
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:

If your computer recognizes your pearl, then backup your music first and check the "format data" box. I couldn't play aac files without formatting while upgrading the firmware.

Need aac upgrade firmware for rca mp3 th1611-a same problem....can't return them, can't fix them....my 2 children are VERY dissapointed as this was their ONLY gift from Santa this year. If anyone can...


There is no AAC firmware upgrade. These players are not compatible with AAC (iTunes) format. Most non-iPod players are incompatible, but there are a few exceptions here and there. The box on the player has to list AAC, and it can't have a proviso attached to the AAC, such as "non-protected" AAC. The cashiers at the places that sell them don't know jack about compatibility, usually.
