Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player
Before I upload my mp3 files to my Opal I make sure the filenames are in order so they are in order on the device. BUT, when I finally get them to the device they are out of order. I've tried Windows Media Player synchronizing it and I've tried just drag and drop/copy and paste method. I haven't tried updating the firmware but everytime I try it wants to try and install a new device which it in turn displays the wrong device and I'm afraid I'm going to lose all my files on the device via a format or something tricky. So I'm still working on getting up to date firmware. Is there some other trick I can do to get the files to be in order or will I have to make individual playlists? What's the easiest way to create a playlist? Sorry about the sort-of multiple question. Thanks for the help!
It is problably using the order of the name that is saved on the files properties. even though you have them name there is another name as well. goto mycomputer and double your mp3 player and goto where the music files are located and on one of them right click and goto properties copy the name of the song or video and go the the last tab and paste the name in there and do that to all of the songs and that should fix the problem

Ya there is a trick copy-paste your all files then reformat it after formatting copy paste again the files that you keep on Drive C: then paste it from your mp3

SOURCE: no playlist found
One of the pesky features of windows Media Player is that if you delete the song/playlist from the computer's harddrive, and then resync your device to that same computer, then oftentimes the song/playlist disappears. Reacquire the song/playlist, and then try resyncing to the goGear again.

No. The RCA Opal does not support playlists beyond the rudimentary "Favorites" that is built into the unit.
You must use a file interface to download mp3s from an Opal device before you try to upload them to a website. Be aware that DRM (copy-protected) files will probably not work on other computers or for people to download from a website.
If you cannot get a file interface to the Opal after plugging it into your USB port, have the unit serviced or replaced.

Tips for a great answer:
Check the system requirements for the MP3 player.
Most Coby players require Windows XP or higher and at least 1 GB of RAM to function correctly.
Check your Coby owner's manual to ensure that your machine meets all the required specifications before proceeding.
Charge the MP3 player fully.
Often, a player will act unexpectedly if it has a low charge.
A charge can also help reset the MP3 player if it has frozen or locked up.
Once the player has finished charging to 100%, see if the problem persists.
Re-sync your player.
Plug the MP3 player back in to the computer and then remove all the files.
If you have not done so already, make sure they are backed up to your hard drive.
Unplug your MP3 player and then re-load all of your files.
Check for corrupted and wrong format files.
Most Coby MP3 players only play back MP3 files, and will perform unexpected operations
if files of other formats are uploaded to the device.
Go through your uploaded files and check the extensions.
Anything that does not say ".mp3" or is not listed in your owner's manual needs to be deleted from the device.
hope this helps
