Question about Rio Carbon MP3 Player
For some reason my rio carbon one seemed to have lost all the songs I put into it and I don't know why. When I tried putting them back on it didn't let me use the entire 6GB, it only let me use what I had left before losing all my songs. I reset it more than once and still couldn't recover neither my songs nor my memory. Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this?
On a windows computer go into my computer and explore your rio carbon folder. In there there should be at least 2 folders - Music and recordings. go into the music folder and all of your files should be there. Delete them all and start putting files on again.
If there are no files showing in the Music folder then go back to my computer and right click on your player and click on format. Accept all of the default values and click format. You will then need to download the firmware for your Rio. This can be downloaded from:
Once you have downloaded it and your player has finished formatting then load the update by clicking on it and follow the instructions to install it. Once this is done then your player will be completely wiped and you can the start putting music back on it.
Hope this helps,
