Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Dissapeared songs I was shutting of my computer (I forgot my MP3 Player was pluged into it) when it crashed and rebooted (overheating is normal w/ my comp.) BUT, when i turned my MP3 player back on everything had been deleted. This would not be a problem except, the memory that all of the things took (about 5G of 8G) wasn't restored. Can anyone help?

My guess is that the crash caused damage to the file system. This corruption may or may not erase the songs, but the only way to recover from such a crash would be to reformat your mp3 player which will result in erasure of all the songs in it. Formatting it will reset it to factory defaults and you should be able to reload your mp3 player and rock on!  Good Luck!

All my music slowly dissapeared, then when i plug it in to the computer it doesnt even show up and cant sync anything


Hi,
This happens when you've made any changes in the Software installed in the Computer or to the songs in the Player. This player is only compatible with the songs transferred using the supplied SonicStage Software. If you've tried deleting the songs or trasnferring the songs to the Player without using this Software, the Software database and the Player will mismatch. Always be sure to transfer/delete the songs to the Player using the supplied Software. Make sure not to edit the Software database also.
I suggest you to format the Player using the Format option in the Player. HOME>>MENU>>ADVANCE MENU>>INITIALIZE>>FORMAT>>OK Once formatted, re-transfer all the songs to the Player using the supplied Software. This will resolve the issue.
Good Luck! FixYa

Songs dissapeared!


Several things. 1. To correctly reset it, flip the lock button, then hold down the power button. 2. Format your sansa. Make sure you have all your stuff off. Then, format it. If you don't know how, e-mail me here : spazzysmash@gmail.com Then sync it back on!

Samsung mp3 player crash


Hi undercover. I don't have experience of your actual model, but I've had a similar thing happen to my Inovix MP3/4 player when it crashed (also crashing my whole computer!) and went completely 'dead'. Plugging it into the USB port had no effect - no charge symbol and the computer didn't even acknowledge something was being plugged in. Basically, I kept on trying every time I was on the computer! 2 days later, I plugged it in and 'ding-dong' Windows XP recognised something was in the USB port. I then carried out a Firmware re-load using the supplied disc, and my player burst into life! Firmware crashes are pretty common with various players, I believe. Depending on how old your player is, try the manufacturer's website to see if they've updated the Firmware. Good luck.

Songs will not appear on my MP3 player


I have a gigabeat 30GB. You may not like the anwser but here goes. I think from experience that your player is Dead. the only thing that you might do is: If you can see the songs using windows explorer then you can move them to the HDD of your computer. If you have all of your songs on your PC already, simply use explorer to delete the files on the player. then sync it from scratch.

Reformat in the new Windows Media Player - will erase all songs

I lost all my songs and now i cant put them back on


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
