There are a few things you can do.
One plug device into your usb of your computer.
Use the add new hardware fuction.
Have the computer search for new hardware.
It should not be able to find the OPAL.
After it fails to find the OPAL have the new hardware wizard look for MPT device. It should find it after that.
If it still not found bye the pc.
Goto RCA website and download the newest firmware.
http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/
Find your make and model and download the firmware.
After the new firmware is download make sure your OPAL is still connected to your usb device on my pc.
And install the new firmware. While the firmware installs windows should find the device.

My rca opal m4204-a says initializing and thats it won't do anything else went to web site to check and can not fix it with thier instructions internal battery needs reset or something


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 the RCA website: http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2558
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.

RCA Opal M4204 Locked Up


On the back of the player is a small reset hole, use something non-metallic to press in there. Something like a toothpick will work great.

This will reset the device. If the problem persists after doing this you will need to contact RCA.

Thanks

Go to "http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2559"
To update the firmware of the M42xx mp3 player click here and download the firmware. start the firmware and when it is runnin plug the M42xx in at the same time holding down the PLAY BUTTON (center) until a white screen with a small computer with a line going to your M42xx is displayed and then release the PLAY button. You can then click on start and the firmware update will complete,,, DO NOT DISCONNECT DURING THIS UPDATE... it may take 2 times to complete this but it will work.... YEA!!!!
