    I am no longer able to get my RCA M4018A Opal mp3 player to work on my computer. When I try to plug it in to my PC using a USB cable, the device is no longer recognized by the computer and so I can neither charge my device nor access the internal storage device. I am not sure if the problem lies in the fact that "the driver has not been installed properly" or "failed to install", or else is simply a malfunction of the device itself. I never had problems when plugging it in before. I have even tried pressing the "reset" button a few times, but that hasn't seemed to work either. I would appreciate any assistance or advice you might be able to provide.

I think i have an answer, I also had this problem. I think is is a vista problem. What I did was plugged the sony into the usb [nothing], then i went into device manager and found the sony in Portable Devices as not installed correctly. I then uninstalled the device. Removed it from the PC then plugged it in again and it installed it again, I lost nothing from the walkman and can now see everything on the drive. Hopes this helps

The solution for this is only install the Windows Media Player 10 or later.

Particularmente el problema que tuve fue que cuando insertaba la memoria aparecía "Sync digital media files to this device" y "No realizar ninguna acción". En el explorer no aparecía la memoria !!

La solución para esto es sólo instalar la versión de Windows Media Player 10 ó mayor.

Hello everyone. i encountered the same problem. after i unplugged themp3 player the screen hung/froze showing only the sony walkman logo. iused the reset feature numerous times, but no luck (initially.)

ima linux user (ubuntu 8.10) and the sony mp3 player NWZ-B135F is in factCOMPATITIBLE with the Ubuntu Linux operating system. i triedlinux suggested solution mentioned in another thread.i let the power drain completely. however after the whole "ithung/froze" incident, even linux was not able to read the usb device.it wouldn't turn on and it wouldn't charge at all. so to troubleshootthis issue i used the Windows XP prof. OS which was able to detect thethe sony mp3 player when plugged into a usb port. but mind you, the mp3player device was not appearing under "my computer"

i downloaded the FIRMWARE for NWZ-B135F found on this page below:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=NWZB135F&SelectOS=7#div_pos_30

afterrunning this program, the Windows XP prof. OS clearly detected the mp3player device and it now appeared under "my computer" as a removabledisk. (at this point, the sony mp3 player lit up and it started tocharge again) i reformatted the sony mp3 player memory to FAT and ranthe NWZ-B130_V1_01.exe (firmware) again. the system reset and itworked! i only had 20 songs so losing the files was no big deal. i wasjust glad it started to work again.

regarding vista os users:
i also have the vista OS and it does not detect the sony mp3 device. that is because "This model of Walkman player is compatible with the 64-bit version of the Windows Vista® operating system only." it is stated on the sony support site. most laptops are only 32 bit.

anyway, hope this helps someone. if you have questions, just message me. have a good day.

if you are charging via usb make sure you have the computer (if its a laptop) plugged in and if you are using a pc make sure your using one of the usb ports on the back as some usb ports will not carry the 5v needed to charge your player.

How do you charge my player Player will not play. Do you charge by plugging into any USB port?


yes, plugging it into a usb port (either through a wall charger or a computer) will start to charge the mp3 player. an indicator that it is charging should show up on the screen.

How do i charge my sansa mp3?


  • Step 1:Plug the appropriate end of the USB link cable that came with your SanDisk MP3 player into the MP3 player itself. The port for this cable can be found on the right side of most models of SanDisk MP3 players.
  • Step 2:Plug the other end of the USB link cable into a free USB port on your computer. This will effectively connect your SanDisk MP3 player to your computer.
  • Step 3:Turn your computer on. This will cause your SanDisk MP3 player to automatically begin drawing power from the computer and charging its battery. On the screen, an indicator light will flash yellow while the player is charging.
  • Step 4:Disconnect the cable from both your MP3 player and your computer when the device has finished charging. You will be able to tell when the charge is complete when the indicator light that previously was flashing yellow appears as solid green.

    INOVIX IMP-1112 MP3 crashing my computer.


    sounds like bad news - if the flash (update to firmware) failed during update, the item is more than likely dead. Warranty return possible? Can you try another usb device on that same pc? just to verify the usb ports are working properly and supplying proper power to the devices.
