Laptops are much more limited on the supply side for powering USB devices. This is limited by the operating system in the computer. There are some things that you can try such as a shorter cord if the cord is detachable. The cord length affects the voltage and that in turn affects the current. The OS then senses it a drops the connection. This is partly for safety and partly for battery conservation. For some time, that device was not recommended by Apple to be used for that matter. There was a bulletin issued on it but it appears that Apple did not do anything to change the situation.
Fully charge the battery to maximize playing time. However, it
is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery
each time. You can charge the battery by connecting the jukebox either
to the AC power adapter (fastest) or to a USB port on the computer. The
battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen indicates the
remaining battery charge.
Connect the USB combo cable to the AC power adapter,
and then plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet. Or, you can
connect the USB combo cable to a USB port on the computer.
Plug the combo cable into the jukebox. Make sure that the
top of the plug (the side with the arrows) is facing the same direction
as the front of the jukebox. View Picture
If you are charging your jukebox from the computer's USB
cable, turn your jukebox off. If your jukebox is on, it cannot charge
from the computer's USB cable.
Note: If you are charging your jukebox
from the AC power adapter, you can leave your jukebox on as it charges,
but it will take longer to charge.
If the jukebox is on, the power cord icon appears in the
upper right corner of the display. The keypad's backlight turns on while
the battery charges, and then turns off when the battery is fully
When your jukebox battery is finished charging, pinch the
two side buttons on the plug, and then pull the plug out of the jukebox.
People on other posts said to get a wall charger and that'll work. We
looked for one, but couldn't find one. We ended up using a usb camera
upload cord that had the same connector. It charged just fine after
that. We have a 180 Eclipse mp3 player...I'm guessing the cord connectors are pretty
It could be a driver issue but if the computer does not respond at all to you plugging it in it could be a problem with the usb cord or the mp3 player itself. You may want to try plugging it in to another computer to test and see what happens and go from there.
Hello camerorunner, Most MP3 players can be charged by connecting them to a computer's USB port using the supplied cord. Make sure you are plugging the MP3 player into a USB 2.0 port directly on the computer itself, not on a USB hub. Most USB hubs do not have enough power output to actually charge your player. The player may also be supplied either a wall adapter or car cord that can be used to charge the unit. However, most manufacturers sell these items as optional accessories.

this is what u do turn on ur computer then go to my documents after put in a cd go to windows media player click SYNC and if the screen of the mp3 player if it has two arrows pointing towards each other then its SYNCingt GOOD JOB!!!!! then un hook ur usb cord then turn on ur mp3 player go to music and it should be there!

I have not been on FixYa for about a 1/2 a year so as I seem to be the only person answering Rio problems I have only just seen your problem... Sorry, so if you haven't bought an iPod yet (or you want to try and fix this anyway) then I would recommend wiping and rebooting your player:
Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...
Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in. Right click on your Rio player and click on format. Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative. Then click on format. Then
when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded
from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=112). Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player. When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.
Okay, this is what happens when you put your USB cable into the external device jack next to the telephone line jack (instead of the USB port). Once you plug the stuff in correctly, the problem goes away.

This message would indicate any one of the following:
1. You have a lot of USB devices plugged in to your computer, and the maximum power supply for the USB ports has been exceeded by plugging this player to your computer. It would be best if you unplugged 1 or 2 of the USB devices connected for the time being.
2. You are plugging the player on your front USB port, and may need to plug it in the rear USB port to acquire ample power supply (front USB ports do not get as much power as the rear USB port -- sad but true)
3. You are using a laptop and may need to try another USB port on that computer. Purchasing a self-powered USB hub would be ideal as it gets its power supply directly from the wall electrical socket.
