    same problem but been trying to update the firmware all night and the screen says AudiovoxOpal Firmware Download then all the lines on the screen are blank then down below there is a green box growing and shrinking and it says initalizing but the MP3 player itself does not say anything but Battery Full and USB Connected. Is this thig actually working or does it takes hours and hours and hours and days to download and shouldn't my MP3 player screen say downloding or something?

SOURCE: downloaded software from my rca

when it says download updated version, ignore. Better yet don't use RCA software at all. Use your windows media player(version 10 or better). Click on file wanted to start media player. Then click on "now playing" and display item or all chapters if audio book is being played. Plug in RCA and drag item(s) to working area of Media Player. Hit sync. and finito!

SOURCE: computer not recongize the rca th1602 mp3 player

The first time I tried to restore the firmware in my Pearl it would not recognize it. I had to follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you run the software. Basically, try taking the battery out and waiting 10 seconds or so. Run the software and read all the instructions at the bottom of the popup window. then hold the play button, plug your player in, and keep holding that button until the software recognizes it. It works.

See if this helps any. It appears that there are various problems with these players & it takes some "finess" to get them working properly. Even after the above software & updates, I am still banging my head on the wall. Good luck!!!
