It sounds like there is a problem with the device firmware..update the device firmware and that should solve the problem you are having...

Just to say to ThaMp3Doctor:

The Rio Carbon supports direct file drag and drop to the player. Please get your facts right before posting comments that are not correct. There are also many programs that will work for file transfer with the Rio Carbon.

The 3.04 developers cut firmware is available here:

If you look in the hints and tips section for the Rio carbon then it is there... That link works so I am not sure which link you are referring to.

Hope this helps,

The Rio Carbon will not play songs from iTunes unless they are in mp3 format. If you cannot download the songs in this format then I would recommend a program such as mediacoder to convert the tracks. I don't know why iTunes was recommended for the Rio but I would just use drag and drop into the folder called Music on your Rio.

Hope this helps,

Tip

Wipe and reboot Rio carbon


Many problems have been found with the Rio carbon and although it is a good media player I think most people will have some problems with it.

Many of these problems can be solved by wiping and rebooting your player:

This may fix the upgrader message but if not the try replacing your hard drive (see: http://www.fixya.com/support/r590688-replace_broken_hard_drive_in_rio_carbon)

Windows only... Sorry but I am not familiar with the way to do it with a mac or linux pc...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio player and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=215).
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps

How do you restore your carbon back to factory settings? i want to completely delete everything but i don't have the software...i havent for quite awhile. can you restore it just using the device itself?...


You cannot restore the player without a computer but by formatting your drive and re-loading the Rio Carbon Firmware, you can reset it to factory settings.
The Developers cut firmware (latest (unofficial) firmware) is still available here:

Rio Carbon stuck on Formatting


Leave it for around 2 hours to format. If it is still formatting, pull the cable out. Some of your data may corrupt, but it will get unstuck. Then plug it in again, go to Start>My Computer, right click your player, and select format.

How do i download/transfer my rio carbo mp3 music database to my ipod itunes music manager??


The Rio Carbon is completely incompatible with iTunes (which uses AAC format). It only accepts mp3, wma, and some WAV's. The Rio Carbon is still the best mp3 player I ever owned, but since Rio doesn't make them anymore, it will never be compatible with iTunes. You can use it with Rhapsody's Mp3 Only service, or any music service that gives you the files in mp3 format - but you can't sync the songs through the music service's "synchronize function" - you have to download the files to a location on your computer, and then use the Rio music Manager to transfer the songs to your device.
