Question about RCA H125 MP3 Player

Open Question

RCA 125A - purchased Nov 2008 (or 2007), used a few times, then stored properly, then when I tried to used it a few months ago, received 'file system corrupt'... when I hook it up to my computer, receive error message that unit/device is unrecognizable... same message from 'My Computer' & 'Device Manager'. Info from web posted by people with both this and 115, say that I need to reformat it, but I can't get to that point

SOURCE: File Sytem Corrupted!

The dreaded "File System Corrupted" error is one that comes time and time again. Did you drop the player or hit it by accident? If so, then the pin connecting the battery to the micro hard drive has probably been disconnected. You can removed the back of the player with a screwdriver, but you risk tearing off the S/N sticker. If you decided to do it anyway, remove the back of the player and then simply fit the multi-pin connector back into the hard drive. Replace the back and screw it in, and then turn it on to see if it works. I did this with my old RD2762A, and it worked like a charm. Hope this helps!

I found Billy K. Dec.8 2007? the best advice...My opal is a m4002. I think Windows XP - Media 10 stop seeing my device and kept seeing it as MTP device... and the opal needed new firmware becuase of it.
Even though I was using Yahoo Jukebox for loading my opal.... it was my computer that no longer recognized the Mp3 player. I tried to go back to a earlier version of Media Player - that didn't work... and caused other errors.... did a system restore and tried again.
SEE Below for how I got it to recognize and hopes this helps others... all together took me 2 days to get this issue fixed.... whew.
--- Billy's advice worked but had to finagle it a bit - below I edited what he had to what I did......

  • I downloaded onto a PC the firmware update for the M4002.... sorry don't have the link handy but you can find easily enough - found 2 versions out there version is the most current. (The RCA video site would not work as it tried to re-route me to and there was nothing there to help me regarding the opal!!) - version 1.8 is a earlier one.
  • Anyway with that downloaded - I attached the the Opal to computer. My computer started trying to see the device but it had errors... It was kinda like hipcupping.... I ended up going into the View system info - clinking on Hardware - device manager - portable device (which had the error message on it) highlighted MTP - right clicked and then "disabled it" The computer then settled down and I think it changed from MTP to Opal.
  • Then I went to the firmware update which After installing the firmware package in the PC, you get an install screen for the new firmware with a format option for the OPAL. I selected that option, but the "start" button was greyed out as the PC still didn't see the OPAL. I pressed the reset (toothpick in the back of the OPAL) for about 15 seconds, than held down the Opals "Menu" button and waited (Keep holding that menu button until you get the firmware/format screen to allow you to click on the Start Format button..... Eventually the software recognized the OPAL, and started to format it. (again get ready and have your mouse over that start button as I had to do this a couple of times before I could momentarly have a chance to hit the format start button. If I wasn't fast enough to click it - it would grey out again... so kept resetting opal then holding down that menu button until the "start format" was avaible to select....
    If you get a dialogue to restart the PC, press NO! You have to read the instructions that come with the install. Eventually I reformatted the drive, and installed new firmware. (I did not get a restart PC - but left Billy's advice in case others do.
  • ANYWAY - it works Great now..... Sorry this seems lengthy - it was relitivly easy after I figured out or just kept trying to do the reset on the opal and hold the menu button until the firmware allowed me to hit start.... Good Luck. Also - not sure but I think going into the hardware device manager was also a key for me..

I have a Dell Latitude D600 that worked perfectly fine, until around a few months ago. It starts up normally and takes me to a DELL startup and then takes me to a black screen that says this: Windows...

Have you tried starting windows using the safe mode, and if it does start up in the safe mode, did you try to restore your system to a previous date that it was working properly. Sometimes when you have your kind of problem, even though several months have past, the calender for restore is lock too at the time your system went down. this gives you the opportunity to restore to a date close to when your system failed.
Before you try restore, make sure you do not have a virus that has corrupted you system, run a virus scan first. If you haven't done so I suggest downloading Malwarebytes anti-malware that is free online, it works very well, and Microsoft uses it for there systems.
I hope this is helpful, good luck, I hope you don't have to purchase the setup CD.

The joys of purchasing items with a bought out warranty. Check the plug and contacts on the fuse.
You could either call a microwave repairer and pay for callout and repair or purchase a new one.

The Rear Wipers on my 2001 1500 Chevy Suburban Stopped working

Unplug the connector at the rear wiper motor, turn the switch on and probe the wires with a test lamp, if you have power back there you more than likely have a bad motor. If there is no power start checking fuses they are all labeled easily on the back side of the fuseblock covers both on the dash and underhood. Good Luck!!!

The files are corrupt

Was the player disconnected before disabling it correctly? In the bottom right in the system tray the usb icon with a green arrow is able to be right clicked and select "Safely Remove Hardware" to safely remove most players. I personally got frustrated, forgot to do this and removed my Pearl hastily. After that it has yet to function properly. The system is corrupted and no files register even though there are still 967 mb worth of music on the player.
So this is not a solution but rather a probable cause to the problem. I have yet to find a fix for this except to dispose of the player responsibly and purchase a new one.
