Transfer video problems

I have converted my video but i can't put them on my rca opal MP3/video player because the box that says "transfer video output file to player after conversion is complete" is greyed out and it will not allow you to check the box. How do I get this fixed? I really wish I could watch the videos that I want to put on there.

This is a walk around the problem.
But at least you can watch your videos.
Download two free programs.
One is Any Video Converter.
http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
I like changing everything too MPEG 2.
After the video is in mpeg2 format use this free program.
SMV Converter
http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm
Now you can watch any video u like.
The video Quailty is much better than the easy rip.

How do i put videos on my opal mp3


Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).
  • Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
  • Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
  • Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
  • Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
  • Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
  • Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
  • Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.

    Use a free program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real Video files to aVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the RCA Easy Rip software should recognize the video files, and you can use the Easy Rip software to convert/transfer them to your player.
