Either run the installation CD that came with the player, or download the updated version of the software from the Philips website - www.usasupport.philips.com

When i power on my rca opal it says it is building database


The device requires 50MB of free space to build the internal database. Make sure you have at least that much space before trying to power on again. If you do have that much space, there is likely an issue with the firmware and will require a firmware reload.

You can download the update from here:

Follow the installation instructions provided. (You may need to backup the media on your device if you don't have it already on your computer)

"keeps saying building database and stays like that


An unwanted file (like a virus) on the player's storage could cause this problem.

A quick solution would be to run a virus scan using an Antivirus when the player is connected to the computer. If still the problem persists, try manually analyzing the files on the player. Sometimes, weird things like even a word document could stop the player from loading.

Wondering how a word document could go into a player? Just try to remember whether you used the player as a pen-drive for transferring files!

If you are not sure which files are unwanted, feel free to list out the files that's on the player. I will try my best to locate the culprit for you :)

Good luck!

Can't add songs to the mp3 player


First, go to my computer and scroll down to devices with removable storage, then look for you mp3 player, click on it, enter it's file system, and find where it keeps mp3's, then just copy and paste, it bypasses the software. If that does not work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and program, then try it again. That is a model number

Magnavox mp3 player unable to charge via usb


Go to magnavox.com/usasupport and download the firmware and driver upgrades. Then do a launch device manager from your programs. Make sure and hold the return button on the top of the player until the magnavox device manager recognizes the player. The repair program will fix it. We just had the same problem and we fixed it. At first all it would say was magnavox and then turn off. It resets the mp3 player. You will have to reload your songs. Y

Hi. The symptoms you described may be due to corruptions in the player's music database (this player maintains an information pool on the music files you download to it). To resolve that, you would need to delete that database and let the player re-create a new one. To delete the corrupted database, let's do this: Step 1: Switch your player to MSC mode Step 2: Browse the player in "Windows Explorer", and look for the folder named "System" and/or "Data". Note: if you can't locate these folders, your Explorer may be configured to "Hide" system files and folders. To change that, please go to "Tools" on the menu list on the Explorer window, then choose "Folder Options". This will display a Window arranged in tabs. Select the "View" tab, find the "Hidden Files and Folders", then choose the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Step 3: Under the "system" or "data" folder on the Sansa E260, look for this file and delete it: "PP5000.dat" Step 4: Safely remove your Sansa E260. Then power it on. Your player will now either display "Rebuilding Library. Please Wait" or "Finalizing Update". Either way, it would re-build the database and hopefully resolve the error your player is encountering. I hope this helps. I love the Sansa E260!!
