Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Tried to download RCA EasyRip installer, says file is corrupted.

I tried downloading the latest version of RCA Easy Rip, and when I opened it, I got an error message saying the file has been corrupted, and therefore, couldn't be opened. I can't find the software anywhere else on the internet, and when I tried to update the software the first time (using the version of that came with the mp3 player) it erased everything that was on the player, including the pre-installed software (which was an older version, but actually WORKED). So now, I have NO version of the software. The computer recognises the player, but there is no software for it.

    I have the same trouble i cant even install the software because i get the message that my windows isnt suported by the player and the player is only for windows 2000 ,but the cd itself says windows xp on it. the booklet that came with it also says windows xp for it as will as the maual i ended up down loading for it. the only way i could connect the m3 player to the computer was to go to rca opal web site and downloaded this thing called auto updater that updated the player then the thing was install and now working. but i cant put videos into it unless i had the software working that suposed to have this yahoo jute box on it tha tused to put videoes on it.

If the easyRip does not work for you. Try this download media coder. works for me. After you install it. Goto Extensions click it. Home players. Then mpeg maker. It will ask you to remember my choice . Click yes. And enter these settings.

Mpeg-2 2.5 mbps (svcd) 25 fps 352X288 mpeg audio 224 kbps original 1 stream
Bitrate 194.

this setting also works. Mpeg-1 2.5 mbps (svcd) 25 fps 352x288 mpeg audio 224 kbps original 1 stream Bitrate 194 ... once converted can drag and drop into opal and video will play. Its says its and mped but on opal shows up as an smf file. Works great and the video is better than the rca easyrip converstion tool. Hope this helps you alot

easyRip does not come on a CD, the installer comes preloaded on the device (rcaeasyRip_setup.exe)

If this file is no longer on your device, you can download the latest version from the Audiovox help web site here:

I foolishly deleted EasyRip software from player and pc

Will tell you how to work around the easy rip.
You will need two free programs
1st program Any Video converter
It will convert the files to any output u like.
I like Mpeg 2
2nd program SMV Converter.
Have this convert the file to a smv file.
After its converted just drag and drop into the video section of your mp3 player.

Rca easyrip installer: You must have a supported rca digital media player connected to complete the rca easy rip installation.......?

Some PCs, such as Dell laptops, report unexpectedly when easyRip is determining whether a device is connected via one of the USB ports, so trying an alternative port is recommended.

You can download the latest version of easyRip at the following site:
