Frequently Asked Questions
Question
Answer
What type of files can I
play with the Rio se510?
• The Rio se510 can play MP3, WMA, and Audible #2 and #3 format files.
Can I add MP3 and WMA
files to the player at the
same time?
• Yes. You can play MP3 and WMA audio content. They can be mixed together.
What are the differences
between MP3 and WMA
files?
• Because WMA’s use a lower bitrate than equivalent MP3’s they are generally half
as large as MP3 files and you can store more music in less space on CDs, hard
drives, or the Rio se510.
How much music can I
store on the Rio se510?
• The amount of music that can be stored on the Rio se510 depends on the bitrate
of the files stored. The About menu lists the total amount of space, the amount of
free space, and the number of tracks on the Rio se510.
What kind of batteries can
I use with the Rio se510?

Press the Delete button on your keyboard.
Will the Rio se510 play
Variable Bitrate (VBR)
files?
• Yes. Because there are many standards for VBR files, it cannot be guaranteed
that every encoding software package will properly function with the Rio se510.
VBR files that do not comply to standards may lack track time, fast forward, and/
or rewind capabilities.
What should I do if my
Rio se510 is not detected
by Rio Music Manager?
• Your Rio se510 was designed to work with the version of Rio Music Manager that
was included on the Installation CD. Previous versions of Rio Music Manager may
not be able to detect your Rio se510.

Why won’t the Rio se510
play secure, dated, or
other DRM (digital rights
management) encoded
files?
Index
• DRM files may not work properly if the Rio se510’s internal clock is no longer
accurate. This can happen if the rechargeable batteries lose all charge for any
period of time. Make sure the batteries are fully charged, then follow these steps:

The Rio se510’s clock should now be in sync with your computer’s clock.
DRM files should now play correctly.
What should I do if my
Rio se510 is not detected
as a removable drive?
• It is possible that a network drive is preventing the Rio se510 from being mapped
properly. This is a known Microsoft problem and has been documented in their
knowledge base as KB297694. To resolve this issue and detect the Rio se510 as a
removable drive:

:: Glossary of Digital Audio Terms
Bass
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
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.
Codec
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 se510 supports the following digital audio codecs:
•
•
•
MP3
WMA
Audible
Rio se510
DRM
Digital rights management (DRM) is a type of encryption that is intended to protect copyrighted tracks and is
added to many commercially purchased music files during the encoding process. DRM encryption frequently
restricts the number of times a file can be downloaded, transferred to portable devices, or burned to CD. Copy
protected music using DRM should be transferred to the Rio se510 using Rio Music Manager.

Firmware
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
Gain is a measurement of the amplitude of frequency ranges. Gain adjustments boost or reduce frequencies to
provide a more desirable audio output.
ID3 Tags
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 player’s LCD.
Mass Storage Class
Mass Storage Class (MSC) is a transfer protocol that uses USB drivers that are common to many operating
systems and devices. No additional software needs to be installed for the MSC transfer protocol to work because
MSC uses drivers are already on a computer's operating system. Because MSC compatible Rio players are treated
as removable drives, any type of file can be transferred to MSC compatible Rio players using Windows Explorer.
Although any type of file can be transferred, to assure full functionality, playlists and copy protected music using
Digital Rights Management (DRM) should be transferred to Rio players using Rio Music Manager.
MP3
Rio se510
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.
Playlist
A playlist is a custom grouping of tracks that has been saved for later use. Rather than playing every track on the
player playlists can be used to play specific tracks in specific orders. Rio se510 supports .asx, .m3u, and .pls
formatted playlists. Tracks that are referenced by a playlist must be present on the Rio se510. Playlists that are
transferred to a Rio player by an application other than Rio Music Manager may not function properly on Rio
players.

Table of Contents
Index
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.
Synchronize
Rio Music Manager can automatically (or manually) delete old content, transfer new audio content, and keep the
content on your Rio se510 fresh and dynamic. Rio Music Manager must be open for synchronization to occur.
Treble
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.
VBR
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.
WMA
Rio se510
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.
