You will have to reformat you player.
The firmware for these players are not very good.
To do this you need to go to the RCA website
Search your make and model of player.
http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/
Plug your mp3 into usb of computer
Either use the old firmware in your rca opal folder that on your computer. Or see if they have a new version or old version of firmware you can download.
once you find the old one or download the new one. Install it again and the mp3 player will work like new.

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.

    I can`t find the reset button on my rca opal m4001 mp3 player


    Some models have reset switches some do not.
    Look on the back of your mp3 there should be a tiny hole there.
    That is the reset switch for most opal. Other way to reset is hold power button down for 15 seconds.

    If you cant find it you will have to go to the RCA website and download the latest firmware.

    Why did my rca opal mp3 player went into initializing


    Initializing is normal - getting stuck on initializing for more than 5-10 minutes [this is after you have downloaded your first batch of 1 million songs (I'm using hyperbole)] is not normal. reset he player, try again. If it fails still go to RCA's support site, or repost new problem here.
