Re: Firmware for my rca opal m4208rd
This is a very common problem with the RCA Opal. You need to goto the RCA website and download the latest firmware. http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/product.aspx?product=408 Download the firmware from there. Plug in your mp3 player. (don't worry if it cant be found bye the PC it will when the firmware installs) After the mp3 player is plugged into the usb device of your pc install the newly downloaded firmware. And it should work fine.

The website has changed to www.rcaopal.com RCA Opal - Stuck on "Initializing" Go to this website to reload the firmware: http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1415&p_created=1202430585&p_sid=CwOaz8ej&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTIsMTImcF9wcm9kcz0wJnBfY2F0cz0wJnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1pbml0aWFsaXppbmc*&p_li=&p_topview=1 Note: websites are subject to change - if you go to http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com and go to the page for the RCA Opal m series, you can also find the firmware reload on that page.
IF the mp3 is stuck on initializing your firmware went bad. You need to go to the RCA website. http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/ search your make and model. download the firmware for it. After the firmware is download plug mp3 player in usb device of your computer. Then install the firmware.
If stuck on initilizing then firmware went bad. You need to go to RCA website download the latest firmware. After you download the firmware. plug in mp3 player to your usb device of pc. After its plugged in install the firmware. While its installing windows should find the palyer. Leave it plugged in for about 1 hour to give the battery time to charge a little.
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.
Download the firmware again. after its download get the firmware you just download and install that one. Make sure mp3 player is hooked to your pc. Go to add hardware. Have windows look for MTP device. while the firmware is installing. after its installed leave it hooked to pc for about 1 hour to give it a little charge. You should see a new folder Opal. Let me know if that helped
You can get a starter kit which has a charger that you plug in that solves the power issue. Once you get it charged try checking to see if your computer is set to automatically detect new hardware. Also did you get a chance to install easy rip or did that not work either. another thing you can try is to open Windows Media Player when the player is pluged in and see if WMP picks it up, if it does then you can add songs that way.
our firmware went bad. Just got to the RCA website. http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/ search your make and model download the firmware. Then hook you mp3 player to usb device of your computer. After mp3 is hooked to computer Install the newly downloaded firmware.
