|Wish I could give zero stars... Rio Nitrus is the worst electronic item I have owned in my 23 years on this earth. In the 2 years I have owned it. Poor joystick design I had no problems with charging, battery endurance or transferring files. The player is big and clunky in comparison to others.|

Table of Contents Can I upgrade the firmware on the Rio Nitrus?
Yes. If available, firmware for your Rio can be downloaded from the Rio Audio website. Note: Quit all applications before running the firmware update. While running the firmware update, do not close the program, turn off the player, or unplug the USB cable. 3 Downloading the update Click on the following link: Firmware Upgrade. Click on the link to the Rio Nitrus. Locate UPDATES and click Firmware. Select and download the latest software. Download the software that is specific to the operating system you use on your PC: *.exe (Windows) *.hqx (Mac) *.zip (Windows) *.txt (All operating systemsa text file including update information and instructions.) Installing the update (PC) Connect the player to your computer with the USB cable. Turn the player on. Waiting will display on the player screen. 3 Double-click the file that you downloaded from the Rio website. The update should take approximately 30 seconds to load.
:: Glossary of Digital Audio Terms
Bass is the particular low-range area of the sound spectrum where low musical notes and sounds are located. Increasing the bass value will make the low vocals and drums more prominent in your music. You can select the amount of bass in your music by selecting various Equalizer options.
Bitrate denotes the number of bits per second used by a digital music file. The size and quality of a compressed digital audio file is determined by the bitrate used when encoding the file. Generally, the higher the bitrate used the higher the sound quality and the larger the file size. For example, a bitrate of 96kbps (96,000 bits per second) is generally thought of as CD quality for WMA audio files, and takes up about 0.75 megabytes (MB) per minute of music. At a 64kbps bitrate, the sound quality of WMA is similar to that of an FM radio signal, but approximately two minutes of music will fit in 1MB of space.
Depending on the context and kind of technology involved, codec can be defined as a compressed digital audio file format (like MP3, WMA, etc.), a coding/decoding chip used to translate between digital and analog transmissions (used in modems), or a compression/decompression algorithm. Codecs compress audio data into a file, often for efficient transmission over a network, and then decode it for playback. While all the codecs perform similar compression of digital audio, there are differences in the technology. The Rio Nitrus supports the following digital audio codecs: MP3 WMA
Firmware is the read-only software that is installed on the player. Like software it can be updated, but unlike software, it can never be deleted from the player.
Gain is a measurement of the amplitude of frequency ranges. Gain adjustments boost or reduce frequencies to provide a more desirable audio output.
The ID3 tag is the part of the encoded MP3 or WMA file that contains information about the digital music file such as song title, artist, album title, encoding bitrate, track time duration, and so on. ID3 tag information is displayed on the Album/Artist/Track title line on the players LCD.
MP3 is short for Moving Pictures Experts Group Audio Layer 3. MP3 is the most well known compressed digital audio file format. This format allows for near CD quality sound, but at a fraction of the size of normal audio files. MP3 conversion of an audio track from CD-ROM can reduce the file size by approximately a 12:1 ratio with virtually no perceptible loss in quality. MP3 compression removes the redundant and irrelevant parts of a sound signal that the human ear doesn't hear. This digital sound encoding and compression process was developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits and Thomson Multimedia.
Rip and Encode
Rip and encode refers to the process of extracting audio from a music CD (ripping) and encoding it into a compressed digital audio format like MP3 or WMA.
Rio Music Manager can automatically (or manually) delete old content, transfer new audio content, and keep the content on your Rio Nitrus fresh and dynamic. Rio Music Manager must be open for synchronization to occur.
Treble notes occupy the higher portion of the sound spectrum. Increasing the treble value will raise the levels of the high sounds in your music files. You can select the amount of treble in your music by selecting various Equalizer options.
Variable Bitrate (VBR) encoding converts tracks at a variable rate, using higher bitrate encoding for complex portions and lower bitrate encoding for pauses in songs.
Windows Media Audio (WMA) is a compressed audio format created by Microsoft as an alternative to MP3. The WMA codec offers greater file compression than the MP3 codec, enabling storage of more digital audio tracks in the same amount of space when compared to MP3s at the same level of quality.
