    I have the same problem. The unit powers up to the "initializing" screen. This is only part of my issue. The unit does not power up correctly every time. Did I mention that this is my second Opal player. The first one did the same thing. Audiovox requested that I send it in for repair. They then sent me out a new player. Two weeks later the same problem appears. Go figure. I am currently in contact with their so called "Customer Support" line.

    I bought this for my hubby in September and it does the very same thing. Does NOT charge right and now it wont even charge at all. What a waste of $80.00 I do NOT recommend this product.

When turned on, stays in initializing


Try a RESET, holding the MENU/On-Off button for more than 10 seconds.

When the player needs a long time to read a lot of files from one folder, reorganize files into a number of folders.
Should the player freeze, because the format of files does not match the M4204, use the easyRip software to get the data fitting for this device.

RCA Opal M4204 Stuck on Initialize!!!!!

Upgrading the firmware solved the problem, but it took some effort.
The firmware update is found on RCA's website here:
You must first hook up the player. Download the updater to a file folder on your computer. Run the software....and I had to use one of the troubleshooting tips that is available in the firmware upgrade to even get my machine to recognize the mp3 player. That trick was to unhook the player. Push and hold down the play button as you reconnect the player into the computer...and remain holding the play button down until the player is recognized. All of these steps are in the firmware upgrade program. It's crazy to me that you have to start the program to upgrade the firmware before they give you any idea on how to make it work (especially if your mp3 player seem dead).
Anyway. I lost all my saved media, but the player is working again. Good Luck.
