Rio Forge 256 mp3 player

I switched over to the radio on my player, now I can't get it back to playing mp3's.   I've had no luck with Rio's so-called tech support/knowledge base.

    I have tried the menu button and all it does is reboot the player, and it goes right back to the radio. I've tried turning it off and back on, but that doesn't work. I've tried hard-rebooting (removing the battery and putting it back in) but when I turn the player back on it still goes back to the radio. I've even removed the sd card--not that I thought it would help, but I was getting desperate enough to try any possibility I could think of.

    I'm sorry, but I could not really understand what the last gentleman was trying to say.

    Here's the latest thing I've done to try to correct the problem: I connected the player to the usb cable and went into Rio Music Manager software and deleted all the files on the player. Then I found the player in "my computer" as F drive (and G drive with the sd card installed). I right clicked and selected Format, the selected FAT. I reformatted the player only. I then went back to Music Manager and loaded a few songs. When I disconnected it from the usb, it turned on and said internal memory was insufficient for the data I was attempting to load on it. I erased what I had put on the player. Then I formatted the sd card (using the same method as before). Then, the player turned on and off continuously, just showing the Rio Forge logo, turn off, turn on, turn off, etc. I replace the 1 gig sd card with the old 256mb card, but it did the same thing....the only thing that would stop the player turning on and off was taking out the battery. That's when I ran out of ideas.

Hi!
Maybe your mp3 is infected of Virus! but for sure to go back in normal function/and to detect also whats wrong, or maybe have VIrus, all you have to do is to reformat your mp3 to software to see you the problem and to back to normal function! Thanks!!!

Sandisk 240m mp3 not playing


the radio and mp3 uses one audio amplifier, check if you have loaded your music with mp3 songs, if not load with mp3 songs. if songs used to play and just stopped playing, then follow these steps,

i does your display show song playing, if it does then your set is fault, and if it doent and display unsuppoted, load with mp3 songs.

ii if it was playing and just stopped, than take it to a tech, who can open it and check the change-over switch, or selector of that set.

iii the problem is to very big.

Rio carbon 5 gig mp3


The Rio Carbon will not play songs from iTunes unless they are in mp3 format. If you cannot download the songs in this format then I would recommend a program such as mediacoder to convert the tracks. I don't know why iTunes was recommended for the Rio but I would just use drag and drop into the folder called Music on your Rio.

Hope this helps,

Broken Volume Wheel


Sorry, Rio kinda went bust some time ago so to my knowledge there isn't anywhere that does repairs anymore.

See: Replace broken scroll wheel on Rio carbon for help on how to DIY.

Hope this helps,

Cannot play my portable audio device with Sony cdx c500x


It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!

Rio s35s freeze


Ok, Connect your MP3 player to your PC then if the computer recognize it then I recommend a "Firmware Update". link to firmware update for Rio Sport S35S Windows Version http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/downloads/RioS/RioSSeries_firmware_203.exe Mac OS Version http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/downloads/RioS/RioSxx_firmware-mac_203.sitx If it doesn't work. Then there is a hardware problem in your Rio, maybe the BIOS ROM went bad. Good Luck
