Any Mini-B USB cord will work. Its a fairly common cord size. So if you have an older digital camera the cord from that should be the same. Most modern cells use a Micro-USB, but if you got an older cell the transfer cable from that might be a Mini-B.
Or buy a replacement. Newegg or Amazon both will have them for less then 5 bucks. You can find them at most electronic stores, them just might costa little more.
Search for Mini-B USB cord/cable.
I plugged it to my computer and when it connected I pressed and held the m button for about 10 seconds and then i unplugged it from the computer and turned it on and now it dont freeze on my 3rd song! I had 20 songs on there but i couldnt move from the 3rd song! I couldnt go back or forward to the next song before i tried this method! I hope this helps!!
This is a standard USB cord that you should be able to pick up just about any local Walmart. Just take care to make sure that you get the right ends. For that particular player you will need one standard end and one mini end if I am not mistaken.
Your other option, if you have any extra USB cables laying around or even have other USB devices that you can swap from, is to pick up a USB adapter kit. Again this is available at any Walmart and should work just fine.
Wow! You only have 128mb capacity. I thought my 512mb clip was small! Okay when you look at your list of songs that you are dragging to your Coby you can only add up to 128,000.000 bytes. That's probably about 20 songs, or 7 stories. When you look at your listing, and highlight it windows will add up the space you need for you. The cord connects the Coby to the usb port on your computer and also charges the Coby.
Ah, this is the biggest fault with the RCA Opal: the dedicated USB cord. My suggestion: buy another one, take the USB cord out and return it to the store saying you opened it and you didn't get a USB....and that you'll buy another one at another store.
i know it's sneaky, but that's the only way.
Whoa, i've been so busy lately, I almost forgot about this place...
Unfortunately, this is yet another mp3 player HDD problem. It's broken and there is nothing you can do to fix it except replace the hard drive. I hate to tell you this, but your songs are lost.
If you desperately must try everything to get the songs back, I would suggest freezing it in the freezer (put it in a plastic bag if you fear moisture getting into the unit). After removing it from the freezer, you'll have a one to two hour window to try to get all the songs off before the hard drive thaws and you won't have access to the songs anymore unless you refreeze it-the window will shorten everytime you do this.
The reason freezing MIGHT work is because most hard drive failure problems deal with the actuator arm touching/scratching the platter in which case the platter is being damaged and/or information cannot be read correctly. The coldness causes the arm to contract and stop touching the hard drive. Be aware that there might be more damage than freezing can rectify and the actuator arm might not be the problem. But hey, it's worth a try.
If that seems a bit extreme(and indeed it is), you can send it in to a hard drive recovery specialist such as one listed here: http://dmoz.org/Computers/Hardware/Storage/Data_Recovery/
