Ang’s Rio Chiba, after getting a replacement batter cover, appears to be suffering from a well known defect – its circuit boards are somehow not lining up right and this causes it to be stuck trying to upgrade its firmware (which is the most current version thank you very much). Naturally, the player has a 90 day warranty (the shortest in the industry) and it’s 6 months old.

It’s too bad this is such a delicate player, since it was so neato. Anyone know of a durable flash-based MP3 player? Cheap is good. 🙂

Update: Thanks for all the suggestions, but the board is physically loose, so no amount of reflashing the firmware or reseating the battery will help. The actual printed circuit boards are disconnected in a physical electrical way.
