Wow, I didn't realize so many people were having the same problem I was having. First try re-installing the firmware for it. Since your computer won't recognize it you will need to download the software, then you will have 2 boxes pop up. One is the install instructions and the other is the actual program install. You will have to hold down the play button on your player while you plug it into the computer. DO NOT RELEASE THE BUTTON UNTIL THE PROGRAM SAYS "INITIALIZING".
It should work fine once you do this. I spent 3 hours going through RCA's website before I came across this step.
This unit charges via the USB cord when it is directly connected to your computer or other device with a USB port. You can also purchase a home AC adaptor but as far as I am aware this does not come as standard with the unit itself.
If when you plug into usb cable dose it show that a device was pluged in ? If it dosen't turn on then youre charging cable is bad. If cable isn't bad remove software from youre computer using remove programs, unplug opal from usb then reboot youre software for youre rca opal cd.
Go to eBay,and look for the USB cable( About $ 4.00) for the iPod nano, it works for the Opal,I ordered one,and it is fine.It has a USB connector on one end,and the plug for the Opal.You plug one end where the earplugs go,and the USB connector on your computer.You have to let it charge at least for 3 hours.
If stuck on initilizing then firmware went bad. You need to go to RCA website download the latest firmware. After you download the firmware. plug in mp3 player to your usb device of pc. After its plugged in install the firmware. While its installing windows should find the palyer. Leave it plugged in for about 1 hour to give the battery time to charge a little.
when i loaded music for the first time my player loaded everything from my computer videos, music, and pictures.
you might can try this:
1. plung your opal in usb port on pc
2. open my pictures
3. minmize it> my pictures
4. open my computer,so make sure player is regonize.
5. open pictures and drag and drop method
6. it's easy if you already have a picture folder of the pictures you want....hope that helps good luck!!!!
For one, you don't need the CD to put music on the Opal. It's a plug and play device. Go to My Computer on your desktop and you will see under Audio Devices "OPAL". Click on that and you'll see a folder called "Media" and that's where you put your music.
For not turning on, click Pause/Play twice
For charging, You need to plug in the USB cord into the computer to charge it. Wait 3 hours. The Opal doesn't have a real long battery life, i'd say around 10-15 hours. So you'll be needing to charge it quite a bit.
