Make sure hold/lock is not engaged

Restart

Get the firmware upgrade from RCA website

If it is less than a year old, call RCA if these methods fail and get a replacement - hope you still have your receipt.

RCA OPAL 4008 CAN'T SYNC SELECTED


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Make sure the hold button on the right side of the player is pulled down away from the arrow.
I had this same problem today one I move the hold button, it rebuilt the database and
went into the menu.

hope this helps
