I was having trouble with my daughter's MP3. The RCA website said to download Pearl Firmware (Version 2.) (http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=25). I did, several times, but it would not work. Finally, I cheked the box "Format Data Area" under Download options. Once I did this my computer immedialty saw the Pearl and I was able to re-load all my daughter's songs in Media Player.

I hope this helps. I was so worried that I was going to have to buy her a new player.

How to Fix Your RCA Pearl TH1602 MP3 Player from Freezing at Startup


423a6d4.jpg
Does your RCA Pearl TH1062 MP3 player freeze on startup at the Pearl logo?

Whenever your player acts up, the best solution is 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.

This solution will fix your player.
I hope that helps.

RCA pearl 1602-A won't register when plugged into USB port.


When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1

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

You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

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.

I can't backup data and format the player.


To backup the data:
Connect the RCA Pearl to the computer
Double-click My Computer
Double-click the icon corresponding to the RCA Pearl
Double-click the Music folder
Create a temporary folder on your Windows desktop
Drag music files from the Music folder fo the Pearl to the temporary folder on your desktop

Are you sure you need to format the player?
Try updating the firmware first, especially if you have Windows Vista

Erasing songs


Have you tried formatting the player as if it were a drive?
Hit the windows start button at lower left of screen, then my computer. The Pearl should show up as a drive , would maybe look something like the following: Pearl:F or RCA:H. Right click with mouse and format drive/player should be an option. That should do the trick. However, you may want to consult your manual for formatting instructions as this can sometimes corrupt the player if not formatted correctly.
