Same problem here. Tried a firmware update to help but the firmware installer tells me to plug in mp3 even after I plug it in. Ugh!!! Tried a reset. A reformat thru the setting menu. Windows explore and rca easy rip sees the files. But not the player.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

RCA's website has the software/manual that you need if you lost the CD
Use Windows Media Player to transfer music and delete songs
As far as downloading songs, you can sign up for a wide number of music services - each one has a different download method, and the company website will explain how to use it. The problem with this RCA player is that it was tied to Yahoo!'s Musicmatch Jukebox svc, which was cancelled in October 2007, so you will have to find another music service. Some music services will recognize the RCA player directly, and you can use their svc to download the songs directly to your player. Other services you will have to download the songs first, and then transfer them to the RCA using Windows Media Player afterwards.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
It would help to have a manaufacturer/model number, but most likely you downloaded a sample version of the song rather than the entire song. Alternatively, you could have a music service that forces you to buy the song to play the entire thing. Change music services or double-check to make sure you are downloading the full verison.
