20 Most Recent RCA M4208 MP3 Player - Page 9 Questions & Answers


I resolved my error and maybe you should try uninstall, install one more time.
For what ever reasons, I uninstalled the programs then reinstalled the program and the files are complete again.
I know I did this once before and it did not fix the problem either times so perhaps you can try it one more time.
Simply ask the RCA software to uninstall from your pc harddrive, making sure that all the files have been removed including any RCA Detective and EasyRip. Then go to the RCA website and sort through the Support and Download Updates and find the EasyRip software you can download for free from the site and follow the instructions, making sure that your player is connected to the pc while you install the software again.
Good luck and give that a try. Tell us your results here.

If it get **** on initalizing you can hold the power button for 15 to 20 seconds and it should work. If that don't work plug it into the usb and then 3 mins later take it out and try to boot it up again. Let me know if that helps. Mine did the same thing.

This is straight from the manual:
You have exceeded the maximum number of
items that this player supports. Your player can
only support up to 2000 media files within eight
hierarchy of folder in maximum.

Make sure the lock switch on the back is in the unlocked position. For the player to say "Loading," especially the first time you plug it into the computer, is normal - your computer is communicating with the player, installing drivers, and trying to load the Easy Rip Software. If it stays on loading past 10 minutes, however, something is not right. If you have selected to open the device automatically using Windows Media Player, you are headed for trouble, especially if you have more music and other files on your computer than the mp3 player can handle. If you have accidentally done this, disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player.
If you have checked the above, and you are still having problems, disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Hold in the power button for 10 seconds or more to reset the mp3 player. Try plugging the mp3 player into the computer again. If it stays on loading for more than 10 minutes, unplug the mp3 player, go into the settings menu and change the mode from MSC to MTP or vice versa. If it still misbehaves when you replug the mp3 player into the computer, download the latest Easy Rip software from RCA's website and update your player's firmware - take note of the section they have on Windows Vista if you have Windows Vista. Good luck!

Windows XP Pro is very nasty when it comes to reading mp3 players. The OS is designed for maximum secuirty, so unless you change the security settings, it treats the mp3 player as an "unauthorized user". Here is some general TS to try first:

Go into the settings menu and switch it away from the USB mode it is in right now - if it is in MTP mode, change it to MSC and vice versa.

did you first import media to your easy rip, if not that could be the problem. otherwise I a not sure what it could be but easy rip is not that great of a software, once you import the song and decide to move its location you have to import it again and duplicates remain on easy rip which is very annoying, but thats another issue. If you want you can also use windows media player to add music by syronize your MP3 with it. this could be alot simpler.

If you want to create folders on your computer to "drop" your types of music into, then you can choose "My Computer", select the disk drive for your mp3 player, then simply right click & select "New", then "Folder", & name it. Then you can drag & drop the music into that folder, which will load it onto your mp3 player as well. BUT, if it does not recognize them as separate lists on the mp3 player itself, then you have to use the EasyRip Module Dock to manage your playlists, where you can move specific songs into a list & save it. OR, if you use Window Media Player, create your playlists there & save them, & typically that will transfer as a playlist for you under the EasyRip Module Dock as well.
Various ways to do the same thing, depending on what you want. Hope this helps!!!
