The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player.
If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the WindowsTM format command on the unit. To reformat the memory

  1. Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
  2. Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
  3. Reinstall the firmware from

Hi i have a jWIN jukeman MP3 and i dont know how to download music onto it so can you please tell me how? oh and its model is a JX-MP101WHT hopefully that helps.....

Hi nukebad13...
Downloading Music to your MP3 Player

1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer.
NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.
If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10.
2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer.
3...Open Media Player on your computer.
4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player.
5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on.
6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it.
7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

I went from media player 10 to the new 11. Now low and behold the new media player organized my music and told me what to do when I plugged in my player. Thank you, but I don't need any more help at this time.

Why does it say error when i put on song onto my gpx mp3 player?

* You downloaded protected music on your Windows 98/98SE, Windows 2000, Windows XP computer using Windows Media Player 9. Music was purchased online or the music was ripped form your own audio CD with Copyright Protection turned ON.
o You must use Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10 for online purchased songs.
o You must turn OFF Copy Protection on your Windows Media Player 9 before ripping your audio CDs into WMA files
* You downloaded protected music to your MP3 player using your Windows XP computer and Windows Media Player 10 with your player in USB mode. Music was downloaded from the internet, purchased or subscribed, or it was ripped from your own audio CD with Copyright protection turned ON.
o You have to use your MW3836 in MTP mode.

  • The USB mode uses a file transfer class called the MSC (Mass Storage Class). This was developed as a way for files to be transferred onto an external drive such as a flash drive or an external hard drive. In this mode, your mp3 player will look and function like an external hard drive in that it will appear in My Computer as a separate drive.
  • This transfer class is not very specific to the transfer of media files so the MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) was introduced. The difference with media files, specifically music files, is that they demand much more management. Downloading services can require special licensing and a limit on the number of playbacks a music file can have. The acquisition, restoration, updating, and backing up of these licenses as well as compatibility issues with file type and compression ratio within these digital music players demanded a more user-friendly and functional approach to file transfers.
  • For this reason, you will need to have Windows Media Player 10 or 11 available on your computer to utilize MTP. Those who have Windows Media Player 9 on their Windows 98 SE, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows 2000 operating system will need to update using our Download Center. We recommend the use of MTP over MSC (the USB mode on your player) because it is more specific to the transfer of music files. To change this setting, press the button on the top of your player marked M

    Transfering music onto the mp3

    I thought mine may have been broken because every time i connected the device it went unrecognized by the computer and i even had the driver.....So by chance i hooked it up while media player was up and it works like a charm now

    Downloading music

    Oh.. If I know that mp3 player, it's a USB2 type (Where you plug it directly into your computers open USB slot).

    I could list alot of sites where you can buy songs, but if you have some on your computer, It's just a drag-and-drop situation.

    Running Windows XP? Drivers should automatically enable it to run from your system. Try doing the following.

    Open "My Computer" after plugging the player in. If you see it, you can just grab a song from your collection and drop it straight into the player.

    Also Media player might be able to sync your music, but I prefer this method... Less of a hassle.
