Opal M4208 Keeps Initializing and won't recognize USB cable

After listening to my player I turned it off to get my kids to bed, upon returning the 'initializing' screen was on. After holding the power button the screen still won't get off that screen. Player won't recognize the USB cable to upgrade firmware, checked the 'hold' button, held the + button while connecting to USB all didn't work. I also don't see any spots on my player to do a reset.
Any suggestions?

Go to the add hardware wizard of your computer.
Once the wizard does not find the mp3 player.
Tell the wizard to look for MTP device.
( You must be installing the firmware while you are doing this)

Rca opal 4gb M4304-A has completely stopped functioning


Wow, I didn't realize so many people were having the same problem I was having. First try re-installing the firmware for it. Since your computer won't recognize it you will need to download the software, then you will have 2 boxes pop up. One is the install instructions and the other is the actual program install. You will have to hold down the play button on your player while you plug it into the computer. DO NOT RELEASE THE BUTTON UNTIL THE PROGRAM SAYS "INITIALIZING".

It should work fine once you do this. I spent 3 hours going through RCA's website before I came across this step.

When the player keeps saying "initializing" perform as next:

Step 1: Disconnect your Player

Step 2: Reset your Player
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.

Installing brookstone photo viewer.... program hangs up on "initializing" following installation.


you might try connecting the keychain first and making sure it turns on upon connecting to your PC via the USB cable.

my problem is the photo viewer software that came with it doesn't find any JPG images to put on the keychain...it crashes everytime i click a folder to browse and i've removed and re-installed it twice now. what a piece of ****.
