    my RCA th1101 mp3 player says that its corrupted

  • Anonymous Feb 24, 2008

    every time I connect my RCA mp3 player to my usb port, my computer goes into autoplay? and then when I check in my computer there are two locations created F and G. Before F was the only one that would show up now there is another removable disk location and that is G. When I click on the G it tells me to add the removable device and when I click on F removable drive my computer just jams up and goes into autoplay looking for files. I have to end up crtl alt delete to get out of there. I don't know whats gone wrong?

    When I try and download a file to my player, it won't let me. Something comes up saying...file corrupt and unreadable.

  • Anonymous May 16, 2008

    When i turned on my player, it didn't open so I thought the battery is low. Then I tried charging it in my PC but the computer detected a new hardware. When I play the "Touch The Music.ogg" (one of the default file in my player), it won't play. But the other mp3s are okay.

I am having the same problem with mine. what you should do is just replace it. The devise has not restart button like some of the other mp3s have so there are files that are corrupted that will not let it run in your computer. If it had a restart button on it you could have erased all of the files from it and started over but it has none so best thing to do is replace it.

File system error: FAT is corrupted

Your hard disk on your media player is corrupted which also does happen on a normal PC/Laptop. To fix it, use windows explorer -> right click on your mouse againt the media player drive -> select properties -> select 'Tools' tab -> select Error checking / Check now -> Tick on 'automatically fix file system errors and recommended also 'scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors' -> Start.
At this point, you may also need to restart your PC/LAPTOP and then be patient as 120GB is a fairly large drive to repair! Once the FAT has been repaired, depending on the corruptions, you may need to replace some songs, video, photos or other files.
ps. the other 'drastic' option is of course to reformat the whole Media driver drive !!!

Mp3 wont work

If the file system is corrupted, you have put files into the wrong folders.
To fix it, simply copy over all of your files from the mp3 player to your computer, format the mp3 player, then synch the files back onto it.

Can you play at least one music from your mp3 player? If yes, the file that you're trying to play when this message appears may be corrupted. Try having another copy of the music that you want to play on your mp3 player. If you can't play any music that you transferred, possible causes could be :

1. Your mp3 player was reformatted to another file system that is unrecognized by the mp3 player.

2. The flash memory of your mp3 player was bad
3. The songs that you're trying to transfer is not known by the player ( file types other than .mp3)

File Sytem Corrupted!

The dreaded "File System Corrupted" error is one that comes time and time again. Did you drop the player or hit it by accident? If so, then the pin connecting the battery to the micro hard drive has probably been disconnected. You can removed the back of the player with a screwdriver, but you risk tearing off the S/N sticker. If you decided to do it anyway, remove the back of the player and then simply fit the multi-pin connector back into the hard drive. Replace the back and screw it in, and then turn it on to see if it works. I did this with my old RD2762A, and it worked like a charm. Hope this helps!
