Sometimes when there is no button there is a small hole with reset printed beside it. Here you must use a small needle or paper clip to reset the device.

ON THE BACK OF THE MP3 THERE SHOULD BE A RESET BUTTON AND YOU CAN PUSH THAT WITH THE BACK OF AND EARING. JUST DON'T POKE IT WITH ANYTHING SHARP LIKE A NEEDLE IT CAN DAMAGE THE BUTTON AND MIGHT RESET ITSELF ALL THE TIME.

RCA Opal 8 gb mp3 player stuck in initializing mode


I had this problem. I had to really try several different things to get the software to recognize the mp3 player. RCA does have download software that will format your MP3 player and put the firmware on the player. It would be better to get the firmware on without formatting if you have files already on it. Just be sure that you get the screen that shows it is connected to USB.
