I killed my Rio by transferring files on low batt. Once it dies, it cannot be recovered - trust me, I tried every method possible. I even physically took it apart. Once these ones die, there is no coming back - Rio no longer makes.supports mp3 players.

Rio se510 stuck on Reading old; Internal memory.

The Rio SE510 is a portable media player that was released several years ago. If you are encountering an issue where the device is stuck on "Reading old; Internal memory," it may indicate a problem with the device's firmware or software. Some possible solutions include:
  1. Reset the device: If your Rio SE510 is not responding, you can try resetting it by removing the battery and waiting for a few minutes before reinserting it.
  2. Update the firmware: If the issue is related to the device's firmware, you can try updating it to the latest version. You can usually download firmware updates from the manufacturer's website.
  3. Format the device: If the issue persists, you can try formatting the internal memory of the Rio SE510. This will erase all of the data on the device, so make sure to backup any important files before proceeding.
  4. Contact customer support: If none of the above solutions work, you may need to contact the manufacturer for further assistance.
Note: Keep in mind that the Rio SE510 is an older device and may not be supported by the manufacturer anymore. Additionally, the above solutions may not work if the device has hardware issues.

Jus changed thermostat and radiator on my 04 kia rio now wont start...?

Did you bleed all the air out of the cooling system after you put all the coolant in?
Some cars may not start, because the computer thinks there's no coolant in the engine.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Kia Rio and i have no power what so ever..no lights , no battery power..nothing works..i was driving and the car just shut off..no lights ..no power to anything ..its like the car is...

Sounds like you cooked the main fuse going from the battery to the fuse box. Or something happened to one of the battery cables.
There should be a 75 or 100 amp fuse that powers the main fuse box.

Bottom Bolt size For Kia Rio Alt.

A bottom bolt is most likely going to be, metric because of the make, a 12 to 15 mm. I don't have a Rio to go look at and that type of information isn't in any of the repair manuals on the market.

Having trouble getting my Rio Forge to work

Mine wasn't recognising the player through the USB cable so I followed Mantraguy's instructions to reload the firmware. Make sure though that you hold down the menu key before you switch on the player. Then it shows upgrade and you can reload the firmware. Of course you will lose all the songs on the internal memory but if it isn't working anyway.

good luck

Rio Forge 256Mb Mp3 Player

I had the same problem and, after scouring the internet in search of a solution, found nothing. So I started messing around with things. About 5 minutes ago I came up with something that worked for me! I'm still in 'testing' mode but it's playing some ACDC now so I'm happy. ;-)

My first step was to download a firmware 'update'. I'm not sure if it's newer or older than the firmware that I already had in there, but it works so what the heck. It's version 1.16 and is available for download here:

http://www.opendrivers.com/downloaddriverlink.php

Filename is 'RioForgeFlash_116.exe'

To update the firmware, I connected the player via the USB cable. It will power itself up automatically - make sure you have a fresh set of batteries in it. Once it powers up, turn it off but leave it plugged in via USB. Then, power it up again but press and hold the mode button (the small button on the face, to the left of the main navigation buttons. It's the one you use to select different play modes etc.). It will power up and display 'UPGRADER'. From this mode, run the udate file (RioForgeFlash_116.exe); it will update the firmware in the Forge.

Once completed, my Forge interacted normally with the Rio Music Manager and I was able to upload music to it again. I did lose all the music that was in there and on the storage card, but that's better than having a useless MP3 player!

Best of luck!

My Rio says upgrader when I turn it on

UPGRADER is a mode that purges the firmware from the Rio player prior to flashing the unit. Firmware is basically the operating system for the player, so if it is corrupted any number of things can occur. You can enter UPGRADER mode to update the firmware on your player by holding down the MENU button when you power the Rio ON. Flashing the player in this mode erases all content. Try the following to get the unit out of UPGRADER mode, if powering OFF the unit will not correct it. ALL PLAYERS - If you accidentally entered UPGRADER mode, turn the unit OFF and then back ON again. - Download the latest version of the firmware for your player and upgrade the unit. Visit http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio - It may be necessary to run the firmware update more than once. - This process may erase content from your player. - If the player is detected by the computer, it is recommended that you format the player, which WILL erase content from the player. - Macintosh user's try flashing the player on a PC. FLASH MEMORY PLAYERS - Remove the battery and replace it, this will reset the unit. The Rio Forge, Rio se510, Rio Cali [Black Rio Stick], and Rio Chiba [Black Rio Stick] can lock up causing the player to be unresponsive. If this occurs there are two things that need to be performed to resolve the issue. First you want to remove power from the player this includes the battery and a USB connection for 20 minutes to reset the player. There is a capacitor on the player that stores a charge that holds the player in the locked state. By waiting the duration the capacitor will discharge and the player should function as normal. Second you will want to upgrade the firmware to the latest version and format the player to prevent future occurrences. HARD DISK DRIVE PLAYERS - If you have a Carbon, Nitrus, Eigen, or Karma, use a paper clip to reset the unit. Your Rio will power off automatically when it has been reset. It may be necessary to connect the player to AC power and then reset the player if it will not turn on. If you are still unable to have the player exit UPGRADER Mode, then try it on another computer. UPGRADE FIRMWARE - Connect to the internet - Go to http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/ - Click on the appropriate player - Click on the FIRMWARE tab [showing by default] - Click on the latest firmware file [example: RioForge_firmware_133.exe] - Click SAVE when prompted - From the SA
