Re: Problems transferring pictures to OPAL

With XP, you must drop them into the Media folder instead of the internal memory

    I dont know how to set up my walkman to put anything in it?

    I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring files to the Walkman Player. You can use the Windows Explorer to transfer files (music, images and videos) to the Walkman layer. Once you connect the Walkman Player to the Computer, it will display as an additional storage media under My Computer. Please follow the below steps to access the Walkman Player using Windows Explorer.
    • Click Start and then click My Computer .
    • In the My Computer window, under Other , double click the icon for your portable player.
    • In the My Computer\[Name of your portable player] window, double click Storage Media .
    1. Now, drag and drop the music files or folders into the MUSIC folder.
    2. Drag and drop video files or folders into the VIDEO folder.
    3. Drag and drop picture/image files or folders into the PICTURE or DCIM folder.
    Now, the only thing you want to make sure is that you're transferring compatible files to the player to use in it. The video files should meet the following requirements.

    MP3 is fine for audio and for images, jpeg would be good.
    I hope the information helpful, if you require any additional help, please let me know.

    How do i dowload music to my opal M4208GR

    Manual for RCA Opal M4208GR:

    This player has default setup MSC mode, seeing the player as a flash drive also called a removable disk.
    MSC = Mass Storage Class
    When seeing the player as a removable disk in Windows Explorer:
    Drag and drop the song, with mp3 or wma format, into the Music folder on the player.
    Note: some wma files may have DRM = Digital Rights Management. These files might be copied or transferred onto the player but cannot be started for playback.
    Important: in MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk, at the bottom right corner of the task bar.

    Transfers to the player can also be done with software like Windows Media Player 11, RCA easyRip or other software from music stores.
    This can be done in MTP mode. MTP = Media Transfer Protocol.
    How to switch to MTP mode, seeing the player as Media device:
    In the players Menu go to Settings. Go to Protocol. Select MTP mode / switch from MSC mode to MTP mode.

    How can i put photos in my mp3?

    The player only supports .jpg extension files. Picture files must be put in the "Media" folder (if Windows Media Player 10TM is installed) or "Internal Storage" folder (if Windows Media Player 11TM is installed).

    Hope this helps :)

    I want to get pictures on my mp3 but i dont have a picture folder but it has pictures in it already how do i get my pics on the mp3.

    You have to make sure that first of all your pictures are in the jpeg format. Once you do that, it's simply a matter of opening up your my computer icon, finding the opal in the listing of drives, and dragging and dropping the files into the opal. That's all there is to it. Good luck!

    Moving files to Windows media player for transfer to opal mp3

    You should be able to just drag and drop the folder into either the media player, or directly into the opal. To drop files into the opal, just click the my computer icon on your desktop, then after the window opens you should see the opal icon listed with the other drives you have. Then open up your folder with the music, highlight the ones you wish to move onto the opal, and drag and drop the file over the opal icon. If you did it correctly, windows will show you that it is copying the files to the opal. Good luck and enjoy!

    Cant download music

    The songs need to be formatted for a sansa. Use Windows Media Player 11. Don't use Rhapsody, too many problems.
    Load a CD into your computer, on the Toolbar of WMP11 click rip, After all songs are ripped, hook up your Sansa to the computer via USB cable, Click Sync. WMP11 will not only sync the sansa it will sync the micro card also. You have your choice where you want to put the music. Drag and drop the music in the box to the left where you synced your sansa and at the bottom of the box click Sync. All music will be synced to your sansa or card which ever one you chose. Understand, when the sansa starts up, the card syncs with the sansa, you don't have to do anything. Try this and let me know how it works.

    Transferring files via Windows
    Explorer (Drag-and-Drop)
    In Windows XP (with Windows Media
    Player 10 or above installed)
    In Windows XP and when Windows Media Player10 is installed, the player is connected to the
    computer in MTP mode. In the Windows Explorer,when the player is opened, the “Data” and
    “Media” views will be displayed for the player.The Data folder is used to manage data content
    on the player, such as text files. The Media folderis used to manage media content supported by
    the player for playback, such as mp3 and wma.You can copy files to the player through Windows
    Explorer (drag-and-drop). Picture files should be copied to the “Media” folder for viewing while
    video files can not be dragged and copied to the “Media” folder directly as only .SMV files are
    supported. The video files must be converted and transferred via RCA Video Converter for playback
    (refer to page 19). Alternatively, you can transferthe converted video files to the "Data" folder via
    the Windows Explorer (drag-and-drop).
    You can copy files to / delete files from the player through Windows Explorer (drag-and-drop), but
    you cannot open or edit the files directly from the player. If you want to edit the files, you will
    need to copy the files from the player to another location (drive) in the system.
    I was able to locate the manual for you...It will provide you with more information for your device..I hope this helps...
