Thank You! That worked.
Following your instructions and the instructions in the troubleshooting section for updating the firmware I got it to work.

If you see the “Initializing…” message displayed for the Player for more than 5 minutes, please try the following steps:

Unfortunately, it sounds like you'll need to return your player for exchange or send it in for repair using the warranty. Have you contacted the Warranty/Customer Service dept. at RCA? Can you return the player? They sell them at Walmart, as well as other retailers in case you're not sure where it came from (Walmart will let you exchange it as long as all the original parts and packaging are there and you have a valid Driver's license).

As long as the computer enumerates the drive (you can see it in My Computer as a drive letter) then there is likely an issue with the firmware. Download the firmware install from here:
Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.
Be sure to back up any important media before performing this install.
If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds. If that does not work then it is likely the player is unrecoverable.
