When you turn on the lap top it says operating system not found. I put recovery disk 1/3 in and it loads windows files. Then a screen pops up and says windows recovery center or repair windows. For more...


Do not press on F8. What you need to do is to do a start up repair. Select the option to repair the operating system. Then it will load some files. JUst wait for it to complete the loading process or the repair. It will tell if the repair is successful or not. If it doesn't fix the problem, then, you need to install the operating system to your computer. But, remember that operating system re-installation will return your computer to scratch. It will erase everything including the files and programs that you have added in your computer. But, if you don't have anything to lose then do the operating system reisntallation.

Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.

Opal rca mp3 m4002a TROUBLE!

Disable the auto-sync option in Windows Media Player, and then delete the songs again from Windows Media Player. If auto-sync is not disabled, then those songs will never go away.

Make sure the image file is in JPG format, or the player won't be able to read it.

For users running Windows XP with Service Pack 1 and above:
With your device connected to your computer, click on My Computer and then click on the icon for your device. If you see a folder labeled DATA, you must copy the photo files you want to view directly into this folder. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder. Photo files must be copied directly to the DATA folder using no other folder.
If you do not see a folder labeled DATA, then copy the photo files you want to view directly to the device. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder.

Mine did the same thing. I'm guessing that there is a firmware issue, as this seems to be a common problem with these units. If I were you, I'd keep checking back with the RCA website and see if they have updated the firmware from what you have (most likely 2.3) Good luck!

Mine didn't recognize either, so what I did is go into the device manager, find the opal in the listings, double-click, disabled the device, re-enabled it, at which time it shows that there's a firmware error. I then re-installed the driver from the cd, unplugged the opal, plugged it back in, and for whatever reason, the computer then recognized the opal as a mass storage device, instead of a portable music player. The computer now sees it everytime, and all I have to do is drag and drop any files I want into the opal. Works like a charm. Hopefully RCA will provide an updated firmware program in the near future, but this might work for you for now. Good luck!

RCA OPAL M4002A Video Problem

You need the specific video converter software from RCA that comes on the CD included with the Opal.  If you don't have that, post here and I'll try to upload the image somewhere as an .iso file.  This is necessary to get the video into the final format the Opal can use.  As far as I know, other video convertors won't format the file properly.
