double click on the lyra icon
this will bring up another lyra icon right click on that
go down to the option format and select that

To update the firmware of the M42xx mp3 player click here and download the firmware. start the firmware and when it is runnin plug the M42xx in at the same time holding down the PLAY BUTTON (center) until a white screen with a small computer with a line going to your M42xx is displayed and then release the PLAY button. You can then click on start and the firmware update will complete,,, DO NOT DISCONNECT DURING THIS UPDATE... it may take 2 times to complete this but it will work.... YEA!!!!

Sometimes the firmware or player files are garbaged and the player
looks like it starts halfway then freezes. If this is your problem and
you're sure the battery's fine (and in the right way) then you can try
to reload the flash on the player and as a last resort reformat the
file area as well.
Go the RCA support website and download the latest flash for the th1611 and run the program. You may be lucky off the bat, but if the first attempt fails review the troubleshooting procedures that will tell you to hold the play button while plugging the device into the usb port. If, after the program flash, the device still fails to start, you'll have to erase the file area to un freeze the device.
I had a weak battery that that I pulled out while the device was starting and it seemed to corrupt the player. Thisprocedure worked for me.
FYI, the flash program works on XP 32bit, but I don't know if it will work with Vista
