Question about RCA Lyra RD2854 40 GB MP3 Player

Failed to Load Files

Everyone. Could you help me? One day, I turned on to listen to some music. Then after the RCA LYRA screen, the device suddenly comes up with message. "Failure to Load Files. Reset unit to resume operation. Update LyraHD system files of problem persists." Well so I tried to connect it to my computer. first I plugged in the USB cable after the error message but the computer won't recongnize a device at all. What can I do? My plan B -Take the Hard drive out. -Buy a Laptop to IDE Hard Drive Adapter. -Clear the hard drive. -Re-install new software. -Close Mp3 player. Would that work, in theory?

Iam only 14 so i don't know what the hard drive is and i took out bottom half(the silver) and the instructions said not to tamper or take apart for safety reasons. I have serached the web for manuals and there is none. The RCA website does'nt even list the item on their list. so..... help me....

I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player.
Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.

Rca junk


When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads and find your player and download the firmware upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

File system corruption


I actually fixed this!!! Mine had been giving me the "file system corrupted" error. So, I opened it up (unscrew the screw on the back, pry the back cover off with a small flat head screwdriver or a key, etc.) and saw that the connector between the CF drive and the motherboard had come apart.

I re-inserted the cable into the groove of the connector on the motherboard, pushed the broken/separated piece of plastic that serves as a retainer for the cable back down, held it in place, and taped it down with a 1/4 inch wide strip of duct tape (taped all the way around the connector/cable to help keep it in). I put the Lyra back together and then turned it on... and it WORKED! It came right on into the normal menu! Yay!

Good luck other people, I hope that this is the same thing that happened to your player and that you can also fix it! =)
