Question about RCA EZ101 HD Camcorder
Have XP w/SP2 fully updated. Bought unit new,has had "tlc",not a scratch on
it. Problem started about 6 mo.ago. The program would load 10% of the
vids & completely lock up. (pgm.not responding). I found the EZ101 Restore
utility,that fixed the problem,several times. Now I get the "unknown usb
device" error,& the restore utility displays "no supported devices detected".
Looked at the device instance id & get "USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\4&2769D
55C&0&2". It does the same thing on another pc,but with a different instance
ID. ????? Is there any fix ? PC does not see it as a camcorder.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,Bob.

It isn’t your computer: this camera (although it is
otherwise great) has serious interface issues with computers. Mine is driving
me crazy and I am in South America, so all I
can do is rely on these tech forums to try to get some clues. When I connect my
camera to my computer, sometimes the computer sees it and it transfer files and
edits just fine. Other times it sees and transfers, but then the software wont
edit (says there is an error). Other times it sees it but the computer says it
doesn’t recognize the device, and the software therefore wont run to upload the
files. However, if I leave it plugged in long enough, *sometimes* like an hour
later, it just all of a sudden recognizes it – but sometimes it never does, all
day long. Sometimes I plug it in and it doesn’t show up on any drive at all,
even if I change it from one USB port to another. There is a newer laptop here
running Vista that never once has been able to see the camera, and an older one
running XP that sees it every single time, but suffers a power surge because it
is too old and tells me to unplug the device and reset the port and not to use
it there again. When I can get my computer to recognize it, I immediately run
the upgrade available on the site http://www.mysmallwonder.com/support/downloads.aspx
and that usually fixes the problem for a few days – the computer can see the
camera and recognize it for a few days – until it cant again! (Make sure to
follow the instructions all the way through, which include disconnecting the
camera from the computer and pressing the delete button on the camera after the
download, and then turning the camera on again to finish the process.) The
upgrade usually also fixes the software glitches (for when the computer recognizes
it and I can upload videos, but not edit them, but today for example, the
upgrade hasn’t fixed the glitches and I cannot edit at all. I am going to try
deleting the RCA memory manager program and uploading again through the camera.
One big problem I have is that I don’t have the original disk with me, so when
the software goes psycho I have to download the program through the online
upgrade that only will work when it interfaces with the plugged in camera –
which depending on the day, may or may not be recognized by my computer, or
even APPEAR on any drive. That’s where I am.
Please let me know if anyone knows how to solve this.

This link below is for the EasyRip Installer software itself.
This link is for the firmware updater for EasyRip software.
See if this helps any. It appears that there are various problems with these players & it takes some "finess" to get them working properly. Even after the above software & updates, I am still banging my head on the wall. Good luck!!!

I have this same system and it looks like the USB playback is lacking this feature, of switching folders. A workaround is to use shuffle play to jump to one of the last songs in the first folder, then turn off shuffle and skip forward a few songs until you get into the next folder....and so on. Not very good, but for this price I was glad to have USB playback.
Some generic MP3 players will work in the USB port, but they play exactly the same as a USB drive. SO no real solution for this.

The first time I tried to restore the firmware in my Pearl it would not recognize it. I had to follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you run the software. Basically, try taking the battery out and waiting 10 seconds or so. Run the software and read all the instructions at the bottom of the popup window. then hold the play button, plug your player in, and keep holding that button until the software recognizes it. It works.
