RCA Opal MP3 Player Deleted it's software

I was installing the ez rip update and the software on the MP3 player deleted itself. The player does not turn on. The computer does not recognize the hardware. I have tried to reboot it and nothing. I have written numerous emails to the company for technical support and they don't help to resolve the issue. Now I have an MP3 player that is completely dead with no software installed in it, and I need to know what to do to fix it.

My RCA easy rip software doesn't detect my player


If you mp3 you can just drag and drop them into the mp3/4 player. However if you want vidoe's for it you need to convert them with this app and its free. http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm then just drag and drop the converted files. This works much better than the easy rip.

Trying to convert real player video to play on Opal


Use a free program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real Video files to aVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the RCA Easy Rip software should recognize the video files, and you can use the Easy Rip software to convert/transfer them to your player.

RCA M4208 mp3 player issues


did you first import media to your easy rip, if not that could be the problem. otherwise I a not sure what it could be but easy rip is not that great of a software, once you import the song and decide to move its location you have to import it again and duplicates remain on easy rip which is very annoying, but thats another issue. If you want you can also use windows media player to add music by syronize your MP3 with it. this could be alot simpler.

Easy rip for opal mp3 player isnt working


There are ways to work around the easy rip.
If its mp3's you want on it you can drag and drop them into the opal folder.
If you want smv video files you need to. you need two programs.
1st program is http://www.any-dvd-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ (free program)
It lets you change all video formats to mpeg is the setting I like then after its an mpeg.
You use http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm (free Program)
It converts the files to smv (video file that Opal accepts)

The RCA Easy Rip Installer has detected that a critiical file is missing : Setup.XML


If you are not prompted to install easyRip, you can find the installer on the device itself or download it at the URL listed below.

If you are getting the message that a critical file is missing, download the latest installer at:

http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2253

Please clarify about the player stuck initializing. What model of player is it? Is the device itself stuck initializing or is a firmware update for your device (would be on your PC) stuck initializing?
