Actually this issue shouldn't really be that difficult to resolve. :) A simple reset should take care of it being frozen on the connected screen. Below I have posted a step by step on resetting an iPod.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
As soon as you see the apple icon appear disconnect the iPod from your computer. After the iPod completely loads. reconnect it to make sure it is connecting and loading correctly. If this does not resolve your issue for any reason please do let me know. I have a few other options we could attempt. :) and the feed back is always good. It lets me know if I am actually helping people with they're issue's or not.
I did the same thing and reformatted mine too! If you go to www.rcaaudiovideo.com and put in your model number M4208GR and click on the update for the firmware update again then it will put everything back on the MP3 player. I know it sounds nuts but it worked for me and it wont do anymore harm then you have already done ;) Give it a try. Hope it works for you like it did me!
Plug your RCA M4208GR-B MP3 player into your computer with the USB cord. After the computer recognizes it. STEP 1 click start STEP 2 click MY COMPUTER STEP 3 Right click the associated drive letter (i.e. OPAL) to show the option menu. STEP 4 click "install RCA easy rip"
1 hold down power button for 15 sec plug it into usb for pc. 2 Get the latest firmware update at RCA website http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/categories.aspx?product=317&post=4 3 reboot pc while RCA is still plugged into the usb device. 4 That fixed mine good luck.
Press and hold the center button while holding down the menu button. This will reboot your Ipod. Check your IPod cable to see if its shorted. If might have transferred a song and crash in the middle of the transfer.
