M4002 RCA Opal says it is now playing, but doesn't move forward


Many updates end up deleting all songs off your player as a side effect - try reloading your songs onto the Opal and see if they will play after that.

Also, make sure the hold/lock switch wasn't accidentally activated.

Another possibility is that one of the updates made a change to which DRM licenses the player is compatible with. If you have songs with an older DRM-9 license, they may not be usable after the update. which music service do you get your songs from? If it is a licensing issue, then I would try loading only songs that are in mp3 format - they will never give you funky issues.

"invalid license"


Solved the problem...returned the player to Walmart and chose a different brand. Spent too many hours with tech support and online...decided it was probably a defective MP3 player. Thanks for checking!

Will not play all songs


Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format

Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.

There are two possibilities - corrupt DB or songs in wrong format.

If it is a corrupt DB, then go to RCA's website for the latest firmware upgrade.

RCA Lyra RD2763 5 GB MP3 player


You have to subscribe to be able to play any tracks downloaded from URGE or REAL or anyplace like that. Once the trial is up you have to pay to be able to hear them. I found out after spending days filling my player full of music. I ended up deleting all and transferring tracks from CD's or actually paying to download tracks.
