What version of windows do you have? XP and Vista should work with built in drivers. If you have 98 or ME, you would need a mass storage driver that it appears RCA themselves dont provide. Try this with the MP3 player plugged in.
Right Click on My Computer and select Manage Expand the System Tools tab if needed Select Device Manager
Look for any object with a yellow circle/black exclamation mark
If you see one for the MP3 player, right click, select properties, go to the driver tab, then click uninstall.
Then, unplug and reconnect the MP3 player and reinstall.
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. http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=203
The most probable cause that I see happening to people with the same item is the fact that somewhere between uses, the setup files in the device itself gets corrupted. When this happens, you're pretty much screwed. You can't access them because it won't let you, you can't format it because it won't let you, you're left with a dead mp3 player. Sorry, but you need to get a new one. The other one is trash.
this is the best solution
you have update your lyra rd 1080/rd 1090
for download the updating click her
and after instaling this update follwo instructions provided below
? To update your Lyra RD1080/RD1090, make sure you have it connected to the computer via the included USB cable. You will need to make sure that no external memory has been inserted and the Lyra RD1080/RD1090 display reads: "USB Connected Int. Mem". (If it does not, please refer to the users guide for the section on how to switch between internal and external memory.)
? Once connected, locate and run the Lyra Systems File Update Utility if it didn't open automatically. Installshield Wizard will have automatically created this icon on your desktop as well as under "Programs", "Lyra Personal Audio Player", "RD1080/RD1090" in your START menu.
? Click the "Refresh" button until the RD1080/RD1090 player shows up under device.
? Once displayed, highlight the drive letter by clicking on it, and click the "Update SYstem Files" button.
? When successfully completed, you will see the message, "The Lyra Personal Audio Player Device system files were successfully updated."
? Click the "OK" button, and then "Done". This will close the Lyra Systems File Update Utility.
? Disconnect the Lyra RD1080/RD1090 from the USB cable, turn the unit off and back on.
I had the same thing happen to my Lyra tc1001a.
to fix it I had to go to the command prompt and format the drive C:\format G:
this does erase everything on your lyra though hope you have your songs backed up...
See if you can borrow another card and try it - sometimes these cards can fail, also check the contacts on the card and the machine in case they are dirty - clean with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
If that doesn't help
Try this link - they have udated drivers for your player, which may solve the problem;
Hope it helps if not please post again :)
I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player. Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.
