There are so many MP3 Players out on the market, who can really keep count? There are some that do everything, and then some that do nothing but play MP3’s. What if you are looking for an MP3 Player that’s compact, and comes in at a great price? Find out more as we take a look at the RCA Lyra 1072 MP3 Player.

Installation and Software Bundle


If you have ever installed a USB device, which I am sure you have, then this will be a breeze. Especially with Windows XP. Plugging in the USB to the computer and the device will automatically install the necessary drivers.

At this point, a new ‘Removable Memory’ drive will be created, which turned out to be the H: drive for me. If you are used to copying over files to a Thumb Drive, or any other USB memory device, then you already now what this is about. All you have to do is access the drive, and copy over the files, and the device will recognize them.

However, if you are not technically savvy, then you may want to install the included MusicMatch software, which fully supports this process. Also included on the disc is ID3Man, which is technically a nice looking ID3 editor. ID3 tags is info that’s kept inside the file, including Title, Artist, Album, Genre and all that other good stuff.

There is also a trial to eMusic for 100 songs, which I personally didn’t take advantage of. There is a trial of Rhapsody music service as well. Lastly, it comes with a trial of MoodLogic, which is a cool way to organize your playlist according to Tempo and speed. It also comes with a great looking Winamp skin.
