SOURCE: me dice un menseje

Esto sinifica que el disco duro (una memoria 'Solid State' de un giga) dentro de el lector esta estropeado.

Quando pasa esto se sulen perder todos los datos dentro del mp3.

Intente conectar el mp3 con una ordenadora. en la computadora localize el disco esterior del MP3. Pinche el boton derecho del raton en cima de la icona del disco USB y eliga 'format' desde el menu.

Si format no funziona el suporte de memoria esta estropeado y necesitera un nuevo Mp3 player.

Suerte con su problema.

I have a fat error and says to reformat external media with sigma telformatter how do i do this


The firmware is probably corrupted. Go to RCA's site (http://rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/?sku=S2002) and download the firmware update/install utility for the model that you have.
You'll most likely have to choose the "reformat" option (which will erase all of your music) to get it to work.

An error on my rca mp3 jet says fat error


Not really sure of the options there but here is a fix that works on rca H106

Go to settings and go to advanced press play once only. Plug into computer and it wil recognize it as a flash drive. Completely Format the drive then unplug the player from computer. It will switch back to previous setting automatically. If you need to update drivers and firmware use the auto updater from http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/downloads/autoupdater.exe

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!

Sigma Telformatter.

If You See This Error On Your RCA Jet ( S2001 A)
Then Your Absolutely Screwed!
I Hope You Kept The Receipt!
If Not Go Spend Another 50$ ( Keep The Receipt This Time )!
The RCA People Forgot Mention That The Memory Chip In The
Jet (S2001 A ) Is Easily Damaged or Easily Wiped Clean When
Attaching The USB Cable To A PC That Recognizes It As A Storage Drive !..Also If You Go Past 975mb of free Space Even Though It Says It Will Hold 1GB Of Music You Get The Same Error So Remember 2 Things ....
#1 Do Not Go Past 975 mb Of Free Space With Music
#2 Save The Receipt Every Time You Buy A Jet !

Sorry If Im Blunt ..But If It Helps I Had To Buy Another One Myself Cause I Had No Idea It Was A ( POS ) With Issues !!!
