The cable is a standard USB cable, it's just that there are some peculiar variations on the end that goes into the device. Just take your Lyra to Radio Shack or what have you and make sure to get the right one.

By rights you shouldnt have to download any drivers....out of the box you plug in ur device and it comes up in My Computer as a drive...just like sliding in a SD card and from there you just add or remove ur music.....Using the software that you get from the net is just looking for trouble. I never did and this is why iv gone 5 years trouble free

What i do is i never put songs in my internal memory...this way you never have to worry about formating the internal memory....so i have several exteral card i use say one for country or rock and its so easy to format a exteral card just place it in ur card reader if ur using a laptop them go to my computer right click on ur card that youll find then youll notice on the list theres format so its so easy...im sure its asking you to format ur drive because you must have a few corrupted files....best of all when adding music just pull ur external card out place it in a reader fill ur card with music then insert it back in ur device...this way ur getting away with using any firmware....by the way take any disc that came with ur Lyra and chuck it in the garbage that 90 percent of all ur problems

connect your MP3 player to the computer with a USB cord. click My Computer you should see RCA Lyra. Next,
go into windows and open up a folder --- any folder will do (you can use one on your desktop if you like) once the folder opens, please click the little arrow around the top of the folder. you should see it say :
My Documents,
My computer
(and which ever drives you have on your pc) please look for one called:

once you see that one, please click on it.
then, what you will see in your folder is all of the music you have inside your mp3 player. even those disturbing audio files that they put into our players.

To delete those files, and any mp3 songs, highlight them, and press delete. then press ok and there you are. if you would like to move the songs to your computer, just highlight them and drag them onto your desktop, or another folder, or where ever yopu would like to put them.

once your done, just unplug and there you go (oh! you can also add files to your player this way. just add them into the folder with your mp3 pluged in).
altight, hope that helps. i hope you all have a nice day and take care. cheers..."
