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.

Looking for downloads for rca mp3 S2001A I don''t have c d that came with this


The RCA Jet S2001A does not come with a CD. Drivers are "built-in" to work with Windows. I don't know about a Mac. The player will appear in Windows Explorer & Windows Media Player (10+) as a device called "JET", not as a drive letter. Firmware updates are available via www.RCAAudio.com.

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!

RCA Jet mp3 player


your rca jet mp3 player has a defect in the memory chip. either it was manufactored like this or you might have bumped it around to much, but nether the less, you might as well thro it out and buy you anouther one. activate the warranty on the other one so in case it goes bad also, yu can get your money back.

FAT ERROR! reformat external media with SigmaTel formatter


Error ---------> FAT ERROR
Error! Reformat
external Media With
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 !!!
