One plug it to the usb device of your computer
Hold down power button for 10 seconds.
Go to the RCA website and download the latest firmware.
Install the firmware and windows will find the player.
Keep it into the usb till its fully charged.

RCA Opal M4204 Locked Up


On the back of the player is a small reset hole, use something non-metallic to press in there. Something like a toothpick will work great.

This will reset the device. If the problem persists after doing this you will need to contact RCA.

Thanks

4208 rca mp3 player


Held the play pause button while plugging in the player to computer so computer will recognize the player even though it isn't on. Downloaded and updated the player off RCA site, which whiped out the memory but now it works at least, took about 10 min completely.
Completely charged it and it is working fine.

Fatal error on RCA Opal:
What do I do if I experience a Fatal Error? How Do I reset my Opal?
The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the Windows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Reinstall the firmware from http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/opal_fwutility_v2.3.0.exe
