Re: Mp3 Player wont connect
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.

Hello, have you got any headhones? If yes, then plug them into your laptop and play a cd or run something from youtube...can you hear any sound? Do you have a portable radio or mp3 player? If yes, plug your speakers into the earpiece socket on either one of them...you will be able to get sound out of them if they are working. This is a good test of your loudspeaker system as the output from a radio or mp3 player is of a similar level as that of a pc or laptop soundcard. Let me know how you get on,..and don't forget to vote! Regards, nicaam49
Try it with some headphones as suggested earlier -
it sounds like the speakers are damaged though. ..check mixer levels also to make sure everything isnt up full blast... could be blown-could be loose connections..headphone test first though and let me know if its clear (any headphones from portable MP3 player should do)
Held the play pause button while plugging in the player to computer so computer will recognize the player even though it isn't on. Downloaded and updated the player off RCA site, which whiped out the memory but now it works at least, took about 10 min completely.
Completely charged it and it is working fine.
You can get a starter kit which has a charger that you plug in that solves the power issue. Once you get it charged try checking to see if your computer is set to automatically detect new hardware. Also did you get a chance to install easy rip or did that not work either. another thing you can try is to open Windows Media Player when the player is pluged in and see if WMP picks it up, if it does then you can add songs that way.
Actually, you do not have the same problem - random deletion is caused by DB corruption, and can be solved by updating the player's firmware at www.rcapearl.com
Vhart - The songs are in the wrong format - it does not recognize iTunes songs or DRM-encrypted songs which do not have "transfer rights" (many msuic services - especially free ones but also paid ones - give you WMA's that have "play rights" -i.e. you can play them on your computer; but if they do not have transfer rights, they will show up in your player, yet not play correctly/skip).
Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 Format and you will never have this problem.
i think the one causes it is the improper unplugging of your son maybe the program of your mp3 player was corrupted. You try to plug it on your pc then try to check if your pc detects it. if its detected try to check it on your mp3 player application and see if theres a repair function on it, if not, well you better look for a function that formats your mp3 player
