I had a problem getting mine to boot but got it working by removing battery and removing AC, then pressing power button. Then plugged in AC and pressed power again. It boots. Then replace battery and cover.

As far as manuals, the official site is below. I'd download a new firmware upgrade and install is from another computer. Sometimes the computer downloading and running an install is
compromised and the virus scanner is not aware downloads are getting damaged upon arrival to your local hard drive.

I downloaded formware for my Trudirect Super writemaster but now the burner won'y even work...playing or burning. What do I have to do to rollback to the way it was? I have two burner players,

The firmware update did not take and rendered your unit into a useless paperweight. Happens. That is why, often, if something is working fine, it is best to leave it alone rather than take the risk of some thing going wrong. Lesson learned.

I'm trying to upgrade the firmware on a belkin wireless router

upgrade of Firmware is at your risk...
never upgrade Firmwares....they are not ment for that....
your hardware may be rendered useless after firmware upgrades....the chip inside your hardware is programed to run based on a certian program installed as a firmware from the factory....sometimes upgrades will screwup your be careful and do it at your own risk...

MP 3 player is frozen - removing battery doesn't help

You will be able to restore the functionality of you Lyra after you reinstall the firmware you can download from the manufacturers website. This is a very common problem for mp3 players.

Here are the instructions once you have downloaded the file.


We highly recommend you do not connect your player to the computer until Step 3.

  1. Locate the downloaded RD2010/11/12/15 upgrade file and double click it.
  2. Following the onscreen instructions, allow the program to completely install all USB drivers (Windows 98SE and Windows ME) as well as the upgrade program and firmware. You may be required to reboot once the install is complete.
  3. Connect your RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015 to the PC using the USB cable.
  4. From the “Start” menu, select “Programs” > “Lyra™ Personal Audio Player” > “RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015” > “Update Device.”
  5. After the program is finished searching for the device, drivers and new hardware may be detected and installed. Then the “Update Lyra™ (RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015) Device” box will pop up with current version and new version (1.51) of firmware shown.
  6. Press “Start” to update the firmware of your Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015. Depending on your existing firmware version, the Upgrader might show an option for formatting the device. Click “Yes” to continue.
  7. When the update is complete, click “Close.” If present, use the Windows system tray icon to safely disconnect the Lyra™ RD2010, RD2011, RD2012, RD2015 and unplug it from the USB cable.
    Your update is now complete.
I hope that helps.

RCA Lyra RD2212A turns off even though batteries are fresh...why?

Did you try formatting it recently?
If yes, download the latest firmware and update it.
If no, give some more details. Does it have a HOLD/LOCK switch on the sides somewhere.
Pls check and let me know.

Bad Harddrive

The diagnostic partition is designed to be used by pre-boot BIOS proprietary programs to aid Dell technicians in troubleshooting hardware issues related to HDD, memory, video output, and machine function. The partition is only available via a Dell Installation disk, and, in some instances, may be limited to factory restored OEM drives.

Firmware corruption of HDD is only possible during a flash upgrade of the device. When corruption occurs during a flash upgrade, the device will be damaged (in the tech trade it's known as a "Fatal flash") and rendered inoperable/unusable.

Thus, having personally witnessed many fatal flashes, and, thus, useless hardware, I caution novices attempting to upgrade firmware (especially system or HDD/BIOS) when the devices are working properly. However, if there are serious performance/compatibilty issues with your hardware, by all means, upgrade the firmware.

The thumb wheel on my RCA Lyra x3030 is jammed, so I have lost volume control and cannot switch from headphones to speaker. Any suggestions?

Its a common problem you have to take the back off and remove the hard drive. Then remove the board. once you do that you are able to get to the thumb wheel. If you are unable to get it to work then you will have to get a new wheel off of an old x3030. If you decide its too much let me know and i will buy it from you just dont throw it away.......

CD Firmware update

I would strongly recomend that you put the unit under the rear tires of a large truck and back over it, that should take care of the problem.
