My Opal is not changing from the Intializing screen!!!! How do i fix this!!!


Consulting the RCA site gives next steps for initializing screen:
Step 1: Disconnect your Player
Step 2: Reset your Player
  1. If your Player uses AA or AAA batteries, remove them from the Player
  2. If your Player uses an internal battery, press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds
Step 3: Hold down the PLAY key on your Player and connect it to the PC via a USB cable.

Step 4: Release the PLAY key when a progress bar and text, "initializing" appears on the Players display. If you cannot see the "initializing" text, please disconnect your Player and try again.

Firmware for my rca opal m4208rd


This is a very common problem with the RCA Opal.
You need to goto the RCA website and download the latest firmware.
http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/product.aspx?product=408
Download the firmware from there. Plug in your mp3 player. (don't worry if it cant be found bye the PC it will when the firmware installs)
After the mp3 player is plugged into the usb device of your pc install the newly downloaded firmware. And it should work fine.

RCA Opal 8 gb mp3 player stuck in initializing mode


I had this problem. I had to really try several different things to get the software to recognize the mp3 player. RCA does have download software that will format your MP3 player and put the firmware on the player. It would be better to get the firmware on without formatting if you have files already on it. Just be sure that you get the screen that shows it is connected to USB.

Cant find the reset switch


If it's anything like the opal M4002 then on the back of the player there will be a small hole into which you can insert a small implement (like a toothpick) and press the reset button.
