For Windows XP users, the RD1020/RD1070/RD1080/RD1090 uses FAT format. FAT 32 WILL NOT WORK. But there's a good(bad for you) chance you deleted system files when you formatted it, and it won't work now at all. In that case installing the firmware might help(if you can get it to communicate with the PC at all). Do it either with the CD you should have got with it, or through RCA website - only you'll have to wait for an update before its posted, or contact them for it. Good luck

Rca lyra won't read memory card

WMA files come in two formats DRM & non-DRM. Change your setting in Windows media player (Options - Copy Music) and re-rip the music CD. You can copy both versions but one will play but not the other.

You can format the MP3 Player which will wipe it completely clean.

go to the command prompt and format the drive C:\format G:

You can do the same thing for the SD card while it's still in the MP3 Player. Just go to My Computer and find out which drive it is located in.

Problem using Scan Disk memory card

I had the same problem, and that is what RCA answer me: "... Due to a unique FAT12/16 cluster size requirement, the supplied format utility that comes with the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075 MUST BE used on all SD/MMC cards before they will work in the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075. Once formatted, these cards will still be FAT compatible and should still work with other devices, i.e. RD1080. The format utility can be found under "Programs", "Lyra Personal Audio Player", "RD1021,RD1071,RD1075", "Format Media" once your software has been correctly installed from the included RCA CD-ROM. ..."
