Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player
I have a M4002 OPAL MP3 Player that I have only recently purchased. The problem that I am having is that the MP# player does not show up on my computer. I have tried to use Yahoo Music and synchronizing using Windows media player, but they both tell me that there is no device. I have gone through the device manager and tried to update the drives as well as reinstall the driver. The device manager says that the device is working properly, but I still cannot load/unload music onto the player at all.
I bought this mp3 for my son and had the same problem. Well, it would try to install the device, then say that the device was not recognized. Stupid Vista. So, this is how I made it work: open "Computer" press the reset button on the mp3, press and hold the play button while you connect the USB, continue holding play until you see an icon show up. This seemed to work okay. Hope this helps.

I don't have a solution, I've given up on this device. It worked great for awhile then suddenly it shut off one day and would never turn back on. Even when connected to the computer it is completely dead. Worst money I ever spent and will NEVER buy anything RCA makes again.
If someone can tell me there is a fix, I'd love it, but so far the "experts" don't have anything but running you around in circles PRETENDING the thing actually has power!

That solution is useless. The whole problem is that the device ISN'T showing up.

If you go to my computer and you see a icon that says opal or removable disk (E:), (F:). Click on it and then click on [Internal Storage]. all you have to do is drag and drop or copy files in this folder. note: You have to convert the videos with the program provided and you could only put music in folders.

The Opal shows up just like a USB or other removeable "hard drive" in Windows Explorer. And, in fact, you can "drag'n'drop" MP3 folders with the usual artist-album-tracks filesystem hierarchy onto an open Opal "hard-drive" Explorer window and the files will "sync" (read "copy") onto the Opal through the USB connection. You can then navigate the music in any of the usual ways on the Opal. The "music management" software is just (in my opinion too complicated) "bells and whistles" that is really unnecessary for getting files onto and back off of your Opal...

Install windows media player 11, I had the same issue and this was the only way it would show up on my own pc. Also, if the screen on the mp3 player goes black, just hit the reset button on the back and I had to use a straight pin to press the button. A little fyi.
