Question about RCA M4208 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My mp3 wont turn on because it gets stuck on the initializing screen? Please help on what I should do about this! eclark317 eclark317 (Rank:Wiz Wiz Rating: 80%, 19 votes 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.) I tried this and the firmware wont download UNLESS the PC recognizes the mp3 player plugged in. What should i do now?

You may need to hold down the play/pause button while hooking the cable up, and continue to hold it until the screen lights up. It can take up to 60 seconds for that to happen.

Go to "http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2559"
To update the firmware of the M42xx mp3 player click here and download the firmware. start the firmware and when it is runnin plug the M42xx in at the same time holding down the PLAY BUTTON (center) until a white screen with a small computer with a line going to your M42xx is displayed and then release the PLAY button. You can then click on start and the firmware update will complete,,, DO NOT DISCONNECT DURING THIS UPDATE... it may take 2 times to complete this but it will work.... YEA!!!!

Stuck on initializing screen


Call Sandisk support. This is a known problem with this model that was sold in December 2006. Apparently later models fixed the issue. They will get your info and do an RMA, and they even provide the UPS shipping label.
They were great to deal with. I hope you have the same success.
