    Hello how come my rca mp3 player doesnt charge when i plug it in my computer

    You most likely have not turned the player off. Connect to your USB port, switch on the player using the slide switch on the side. The screen will light up. To make the battery charge, turn off the player by holding down the 'play' button until you get the bye-bye message. A couple of seconds later the screen will go black and the battery will start charging. Leave overnight if the battery is dead flat.

    I am trying to hook my ipod to my computer when i do it keeps coming up with.. "Your apple ipod driver can perform faster if it is plugged into a hi-speed port.. what does that mean

    It means that the iPod is connecting to a USB 1.1 port, which is about 1/4 the speed of a USB 2.0 port.

    Are you plugging the iPod directly into a USB port on the computer, or are you going through a USB hub or extension cord?

    Try connecting directly to one of the ports on the computer and see if the message goes away.
    As a bonus, you'll sync 4 times as fast.

    RCA Opal troubleshooting

    Make sure the Hold Button - it's on the side of the Opal - is off.  When the hold button is on, it makes the Opal think the Flash disk is full, and you get all kinds of wacky reactions.
    Hope this helps...

    How does this work?

    When the unit is connected to the computer, ?USB Connected? will be displayed on the screen. During transfer, ?USB Transfer ...? flashes on the display. When the transfer is complete, the display will change to "USB Connected". Do not unplug the USB cable when the display is flashing. Also, check to see if the mp3 file(s) you're transferring is between 32 to 320 kbps. You may need to reinstall the USB driver for this device. Good luck.
