Rio Carbon UPGRADER problem
Hi. I have a Rio Carbon 5 Gb mp3 player.
Got the upgrader message? Computer doesn't recognize your player? Can't update the firmware?
I had all of these problems and the only way I could fix it was to revert to an older firmware no longer posted on the Rio site.
Firmware v 1.22:
A year later and i have the same problem, though i see no one has entered any inkling of a solution.
Try looking at the forums at www.riovolution.com for solutions to this problem and the latest firmware for CARBON with broken scroll wheel.
My Carbon recently started giving me the same problems. It just turned off a lot until suddenly it gave up the ghost completely and decided to give me the upgrader treatment. I tried to install the latest firmware on one computer and the same thing andreas described happened. I tried another computer and it worked perfectly. That was last night. unfortunately this morning it suddenly decided to jettison it's firmware again so i have more upgrader mode to endure. :-(
I'm gonna try the 122 firmware version soon. thanks.
I have the same first problem which is the upgrader on the screen. so after I download the older firmware what do i do?
Hi, just found the same problem on my Rio Carbon: Upgrader message and no charging.
I just had the 'upgrader' message. I actually tapped it a few times to no avail so dropped it 1 meter onto the carpet and it started up fine.
What joy :-)
Thanks! Was able to resuscitate my old Rio Carbon after years of it sitting in the junk drawer due to that "upgrader" message. I dropped it a few time on a flat surface and flashed with the old software. Up and running! I know I tried this before and it failed, maybe it did need a jolt to get moving again.
