Question about RCA Lyra RD1072 MP3 Player

1 Answer

How does this work?

I plug this thing into my computer, it says "USB Connected", then what? I tried to transfer song files from my computer to the RCA LYRA F:, the computer shows me that it is on there, then I unplug it from the computer and the Lyra says "0 tracks". What am I doing wrong?

    Another question. The songs that I download from iTunes are not playing on my mp3 player. I'm assuming that they are not in the correct format, seeing as how I can not play them on Windows Media Player either. Is there a way to get these iTunes downloads that I have purchased to play on my mp3 player? They seem to be mpeg-4 files.

    You were right. I figured out how to convert is from what you told me, but I'm getting an error message saying that you can't convert protected files. Any way to unprotect them?

    Thanks,

When the unit is connected to the computer, ?USB Connected? will be displayed on the screen. During transfer, ?USB Transfer ...? flashes on the display. When the transfer is complete, the display will change to "USB Connected". Do not unplug the USB cable when the display is flashing. Also, check to see if the mp3 file(s) you're transferring is between 32 to 320 kbps. You may need to reinstall the USB driver for this device. Good luck.

    This only works for non-protected songs. Also, below is a link to more information on how to use iTunes to convert mpeg4 to mp3, but it is for mac users. I hope this helps.

    1. Open iTunes.
    2. Click on iTunes ? Preferences.
    3. Click on the Importing button at the top of the window.
    4. From the Import Using pop-up menu, click on the encoding format (AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, MP3, WAV) to which you want to convert your music files.
    5. Click on OK to save the settings.
    6. Select one or more songs in your iTunes library to convert (Command-Click to select specific individual files or Shift-Click to select files in a row).
    7. Click on Advanced ? Convert Selection to... (the format you selected in preferences above is displayed).
    8. A copy of the file (or files) will be created in the new format.

    I will point you to a link but use these programs at your own risk since RIAA doesn't like the DRM (Digital Rights Management) to be removed. Some of these programs have a cost and some are free. Good luck.

My RCA Lyra RD1072A just doesnt play songs


The most probable cause that I see happening to people with the same item is the fact that somewhere between uses, the setup files in the device itself gets corrupted. When this happens, you're pretty much screwed. You can't access them because it won't let you, you can't format it because it won't let you, you're left with a dead mp3 player. Sorry, but you need to get a new one. The other one is trash.

No files


I think your problem is that you have songs that are not MP3 or WMA format on the RCA Lyra S1010. They are probably mpeg4 (like iTunes. I know because I had done the same thing!) Make sure that you check the format before you put them on the device!

How do i delete songs


My suggestion is switching the file transfer protocol from MTP to MSC by accessing it under the Menu. Once you do this, when the Lyra is plugged into the computer, it will appear as an external hard drive. Format the hard drive and then drag and drop your songs and/or directories of songs onto the Lyra. This is what I do, as I never use Rhapsody, URGE, or even Windows Media Player or MusicMatch to upload songs onto my RD2763. Hope this helps!

Your problem is MusicMatch. In the RCA manual, which is found on the CD or online (nothing is printed), it refers you to the MusicMatch software to learn how to create M3U playlists. Someone at RCA didn't talk to MusicMatch before making this claim. The MusicMatch software makes a mess of the files and never saves a playlist properly. You can devise a process using WinAmp which would probably work with Musicmatch, but I prefer WinAmp. Here's the process: Rip your CDs, download from the internet, and transfer the files to the RD2850 while the Lyra is connected as a hard drive. The files are stored in the /MUSIC directory. I suggest you organize your albums like this /MUSIC// If the artists you listen to have multiple albums, a structured approach is useful. The Lyra can sort the files by Artist and Album automatically if the tags are available, meaning a structured directory approach is unnecessary, but it makes it easier if you want to take the files off the Lyra in the future. Once the files are on the Lyra, use WinAmp to open those file FROM THE LYRA. This is important since the playlist will specify the relative path of the MP3 files and the Lyra expects the playlists in a directory other than where your music files are. With WinAmp open, press L to open the file selection dialog and navigate to the directory with the album, or music. Select the songs, press Open. Open the Playlist Editor (ALT+E) Arrange the songs Save the songs with the List Opts button found at the bottom right of the screen. Chose Save List. A dialog will open asking you where to save the list. Save the list in the /lyra_playlists directory from the root of the drive. Now, the Lyra needs to be updated. This is called "Profiling". The included software has a utility to do this from Windows, or you can do this from the Lyra itself. The manual states if you have over 2500 files, it is best to do this from Windows. But, after changing anything on the Lyra, you must "Profile" the device. You will now see your playlist in the Playlist menu item on the main screen.
