I have had my Rio Karma player for about 3 or 4 years with little or no problems. Just last week the 'ROTARY WHEEL' failed. The fault is - works when turning ACW but jams when turning CW, also seems loose and pushes into the body of the device. Can this be repaired or a replacement supplied by anyone ?

Need more information - make / model
It sounds like you probably need a service kit - the orings are worn and it has lost compression. If you provide the make / model I may be able to direct you a little better.
There is a collet type on most rotary type tools. This is located on the end of the tool where the grinding wheel is inserted in the device. The collet has a normal thread pattern. Turn counter clockwise to loosen the collet. Some time the collet gets tightened to toght and then just take a block of wood and gently hit the collet to see if this will loosen the bit.
Hi. I use this adapter for RCA Lyra MP3 players and it could be the same for your Rio Karma. To be sure that it is a mini IDE connector, open the karma up by going here http://www.takeitapart.net/archives/rio-karma/ and if it is a mini IDE then you can go to Ebay and search for item # 230283935161. I hope this helps.
Try looking at Ebay item # 350057466979 or simply search for rio karma battery and you will find what you need. Replacing is as simple as taking some screws off and opening the rio. Don't have someone else do it because it is a simple thing that won't be worth paying someone else to do it.
Files can be copied to the computer from the karma although it doesn't work all that well. You'll need to use Rio Taxi. I think you can get that if you connect the karma to your network using the dock then browse to the karma's ip address and get it. If not you may have to try and find a place to download it.
