I have loaded several music files onto my Opal and now cannot delete them. I get the message 'file could not be deleted. The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected.' A 'deleting' window appears and shows the file being removed but actually nothing is happening. I have attempted to move the file elsewhere but it remains on the Opal.
Thanks, Peter Carpenter

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format:-
You can download files to iTunes and import them from iTunes into the easyRip music library ONLY if the music from iTunes is DRM-free (.m4a files, I think). Reference the help file in easyRip (the icon with the "?" in the dock) for instructions on how to import the files. Then just use the Player Loader to load the files from the music library to your player (again, just look in the help file for instructions how to do this.)
You should be able to just drag and drop the folder into either the media player, or directly into the opal. To drop files into the opal, just click the my computer icon on your desktop, then after the window opens you should see the opal icon listed with the other drives you have. Then open up your folder with the music, highlight the ones you wish to move onto the opal, and drag and drop the file over the opal icon. If you did it correctly, windows will show you that it is copying the files to the opal. Good luck and enjoy!
You need to change to mode so that the device is recognized as a regular USB device. This will give you access to all the files on the thing. See this site for more info:
Basically, you need to go to you device manager. Find the OPAL device under Portable Devices. Hit properties. Select Update Driver. Manually select the driver from the list and use the USB Storage Device driver. This should fix most of your delete and creation problems.
