Re: Usb cable semi-working...

Wiggle the cable at the device to get a good connection. Does your USB port support other devices? Plug into another port and see if this solves the problem.

.my ipod is disabled... how

Hi, just Hold down the home key and power key then plug the cord to your ipod to the computer then get on itunes and restore it

Also i am going to show you how to fix the semi-common ipod error that renders your Ipod unusable. Until now!

hings You'll Need:

* Computer w/ itunes
* Ipod touch or Ipone
* USB Cable for either device above.
* Your fingers (preferably your thumb)


Start-up your computer and log in. Open itunes and leave it on the screen.

Now, hold down the lock button on the top of your device until the power off slider appears. Slide the arrow to shut off your ipod.

Now plug the USB cable into your computer. Make sure that the Ipod is not connected yet!

Hold down the stop button on the device and plug the USB cable into the device. Keep holding the stop button until you see the USB cable with an up arrow into an itunes symbol appear on your screen. This means that the connection to your computer was successful and that you are in recovery mode now.

Now click ok, and download and install the latest Operating System to your Ipod. You will lose all of your data on this device, so once you are done you have to re-download everything.

That's it. Now your device is working again, and it has the latest OS. It will be super quick, and all you have to do is restore your songs, apps, and other data and you have a good as new device!

Good luck...

My coby MP3 player will charge when I plug it into the USB but my computer does not even know something is in the USB its a Cody MP619-4G MP3 Player... Thanks

The best cable to use is the one that came with the player
If that does not work, try a different cable.
It may be faulty.
Any cable that plugs in may not work, some usb cables are made for charging only, you need a charging/data cable.

Cant get the software to installe

It sounds like either the USB cable itself is bad or the USB port is bad. Try the USB cable in all the other USB ports on the computer. If it still does not work, try a USB mouse and see if it works. If it does then there is a problem with the USB cable provided with the MP3 Player. If the mouse does not work, then there is a problem with the USB ports on your computer. My assumption is that it is a bad cable.

USB cable lost need a replacement

If it a normal USB cable, any usb cable with the correct end should work. It might be something else.

Also, NEVER ever put your phone number online, or your last name.

Broken USB posrt

My Opal cable broke. I went to the RCA website which has a number for Audiovox who takes care of their repairs. After trying to explain the problem to the guy who spoke semi-english his solution was to send the player to them for repairs along with the original receipt. I told him multiple times that I did not have the receipt anymore and that all I wanted was a replacement cable. He told me that they do not sell parts for the player and that my only option was to send it to them with the original receipt. Needless to say I still have a broken player and no way to get a cable. I'm going to get an I-Pod instead.
