Question about RCA Lyra RD1021 MP3 Player

Problem with SD card recognition

I have an RCA Lycra RD1021 to which I have added a 1 gig Sandisk SD card. Why will the RD1021 player not recognize more than 179-180 songs? I have downloaded 302 songs in mp3 format to the card and I can view all 302 songs on the card when I have the Lycra connected to my computer via cable. I have verified that the card itself is not full. It is only half full. The rest is free space. But my player only recognizes 179-180 of the songs. If I go to add new songs ones, they show on the card in addition to all other songs, but the player seems to only like 179-180 songs. By adding a new song, it still only allows me to see 179-180 songs and now I can play the new song but one of the original 180 is no longer available on the player. I'm thinking that the player only holds 179-180 songs into memory and that is all it can hold, so I never can play the other 122 songs that are on the card. NOTE: I can play any of the songs on my computer from the card so I know they are in the proper formats and not corrupt. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Try updating the firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/).
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off, remove the battery and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.

Doesn't recognize the memory card - it is an sd 4 gig micro card

The Sansa e-series works with microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it will fit into the slot, it won't work. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

IPAQ 6515 doesn't recognize new HP 8Gig SD card

Your 8 Gig card is a SDHC (HC=High Capacity) Card. All HC cards use a different format, which the 6515 can't use...

The biggest capacity the 6515 can use is 4 gig on the SD and 2 gig on the mini SD.

My 4g Transcend card and 2g Sandisk cards have been faultless for about 2 years now.

Sorry, but the 8 gig card is a wonderfull card, but is useless in a 6515

Trouble using an SD Card

If Sansa e130 or 140 is version 1.x.x.10, SD card MUST be formatted as FAT (FAT16). Music files need to be on the root directory for better performance. I have a SD card (2 gig) formatted as FAT16 and the music plays good.

I was not able to upgrade my e130 to Version 2.0.0.1 Firmware.
Hope this helps

Problem using Scan Disk memory card

I had the same problem, and that is what RCA answer me: "... Due to a unique FAT12/16 cluster size requirement, the supplied format utility that comes with the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075 MUST BE used on all SD/MMC cards before they will work in the RD1021/RD1071/RD1075. Once formatted, these cards will still be FAT compatible and should still work with other devices, i.e. RD1080. The format utility can be found under "Programs", "Lyra Personal Audio Player", "RD1021,RD1071,RD1075", "Format Media" once your software has been correctly installed from the included RCA CD-ROM. ..."
