I may be missing something, but are RCA & Thomson the same? I do know there are some differences as I've just bought a Thomson PDP2840 20GB player and have found out that the RCA equivalent the RD2840 is a 40GB player. I need to update the firmware but am not sure if the upgrade on the RCA site for the 2840 will work for the Thomson player. I've run searches for Thomson firmware updates but have drawn a blank. Anyone know the answer to this, or have a link to the relevant Thomson site?

Actually Windows Vista should detect your player without any problem. There's no specific driver required to run install this model on Windows computer. There are few tools, but you wont need those tools like firmware update utility. You can try this:
Hi, thomson Lyra PDP2556 is exactly the same as the RCA RD1076 so if you go this address: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/search/?sku=RD1076 and select downloads and download Drivers Update/ Restore Utility install (with your thomson connected to the PC) and then you'll have resurected your thomson. Mine was always frozen like yours and now it works. I hope it will work for you too. bye, fabdiable
Firstly, is the Thomson 6717 the same as the RCA Pearl TH1602 ie are they made by the one company under different names for marketing in different countries. If so, go to the following site for a choice of three firmware downloads. Please advise if this works on your Thomson 6717. Ajan.
This unit is actually produced by RCA. If you go to their website you can download Firmware, and Software to update the unit. You can also try to do a "reset". There is a very small button on the bottom, if you press this with a pen and hold it for about 3 seconds it may start working again.
You may be missing a critical windows update, or the firmware needs upgrading (or both).
Go to: update.microsoft.com for the updates (specifically, you need to convert this device to an MTP device, rather than an MSD device; msd is the old standard; MTP is the new).
Go to: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=89 for the firmware upgrade.
visited his site and oficiel site thomson

Is it possible you deleted system files along with other files by mistake?
It's a very common problem, and it would be good to know what causes this since some people say its because the Lyra allows you to delete system files which screws the device.
I heard of someone that called Thomson helpline with this problem and got his replaced, so it wouldn't hurt to try.
RCA has this page on the problem: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/Cultures/en-US/RLDetail.html?ArticleNum=112&PC=
It might help...
