Question about RCA M4208 MP3 Player
I KEEP ON PLUGING MY MP3 TO THE PC AND IT WON'T READ IT
I got help from someone on this site that helped me fix my player. What you need to do (or what I did) is delete all of the RCA files from your computer completely. Then download the firmware upgrade from the RCA website (www.rcaaudiovideo.com) Once you finish that download, make sure that the player is not connected to your computer. Begin to press both the "Play" and the volume + buttons at the same time and then plug it into your computer. Then start the firmware updater at the same time; eventually, your computer will see that your player is there and that is basically all that I did.

The pins in the connector get pushed down over time and need a boost up. In the end if you look and see some gold dots. those are the pins that the cable contacts with. push them in, very little effort is needed. You can use a thumb tack. Give it a try.

This is what the Audiovox website sent me, but I had no success, maybe you can get some help from it.
1. Download firmware upgrade (I have attached the firmware update software to this message. You must log in first to access it. In order to download the firmware updater software, you must first log in for access. After you have logged in please click on the “My Stuff” tab, then select the “Questions” tab, there you will find the reply to your incident with the software attached at the bottom.)
2. Hold play/pause button for 15 seconds
3. Hold menu button for 10 seconds
4. Attach your Opal player to the PC via USB cable while holding play/pause button
5. This should start the firmware upgrade (While the firmware updater is running, if the player is not recognized or the firmware updater does not start, disconnect the player but do NOT close the updater. Now reconnect the player to the PC while holding the play/pause button. This should start the updater and place an icon under My computer for the player.)
6. Possible an error message of “cant write to disk” will pop up
7. Firmware upgrade will end with error do not close
8. Go to My Computer find the drive that holds the MP3 player
9. Right click scroll down to format, format the player
10. Run firmware upgrade again
