The easiest way to do this is to use the usb cable that came with the player and plug this into your Mac or PC. Navigate to My Computer (Windows) or the the Finder (Mac) and locate the RCA player. It will show up like a usb drive or hard drive. Now navigate to iTunes and drag the songs you wish onto the window you opened and allow the computer to copy songs onto the RCA player.

Try inserting it into a diferrent USB slot or if possible into a different computer. If you are still having the same problem, check the device manager and look for any yellow exclamation point (!). If you see a (!) in the Universal Serial Bus controllers, right click on it, then uninstall it. Restart your computer and then try again.

Does your mp3 player show any error code?

Update me if you are still having problems.

Remove battery and reinsert after a minute.
If the problem persists then get the firmware reinstalled.

Try this solution:

Downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
check the box that says "format data",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

This indicates memory failure within the unit. How old is this player? There is no easy way to get it fixed, it needs physical repair unfortunately. If it is over a year old I would just cut your losses and replace it, a new - better mp3 player can be had for $34.99 with free shipping and no tax:

I just fixed my RCA Lyra TC1602A MP3 Player. It had two problems:

  1. When connected to various computers the USB device is not recognized; and
  2. When turned on, the device software freezes and will not load (can only be turned off by removing the battery).
I went to the following link, downloaded the firmware to my computer, double clicked on the exe file and followed the instructions below VERY CLOSELY:


Troubleshooting (info from exe files):

If you see the "Initializing..." message displayed for the Player for more than 5 minutes, or your Player cannot be upgraded successfully, please try the following steps:

Step 1: Without closing the Update Device Application, disconnect your Player from your computer.

Step 2: Reset your Player
a. If your Player uses AA or AAA batteries, remove them from the Player
b. If your Player uses an internal battery, press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds

Step 3: Hold down the PLAY key on your Player and connect it to the PC via a USB cable.

Step 4: Release the PLAY key when a progress bar and text, "initializing" appears on the Players display. If you cannot see the "initializing" text, please disconnect your Player and try again.

Step 5: Click the START button in the Upgrade Application button as described in the steps above.

This worked for me and I was just about to mail my unit for repair. Please note the Repair Dept number is 1 866 449 7112.

I hope this has helped you.
